Coffee Talk: Thankful...

Do you ever just sit back and think about how ungrateful you've become? I have. What sparked this particular thought? Well...when I returned from my Florida vacation, I overheard myself complaining - under my breath, that is - about how I really did not feel like cleaning up the house; thinking of all the things I had to do. In retrospect, I should be thankful for all of the things I have; all of the things I have to pick up.

I thought about the benefits I get daily from each item I may have to deal with (or clean up) from day to day such as that darn cup on the living room table. My thought should be, "I am thankful for this cup that allows me to drink whatever it is I want to drink". Or, the clothes I may have to pick up from the floor. I should be thankful for any of the clothing items I have because they may either keep me warm, dry, or cool on a hot summer day.

So I needed to go further and start being more thankful (on a daily basis) for everything I have. I started to think about all of the things I have acquired over time, and feel as though I need to reach a little deeper...just about everything I'm grateful for that have come into my presence. Therefore, I am going to challenge myself to see if I can stop complaining about doing things like cleaning up and start being more thankful. I don't have anything pressing to complain about ...I feel grateful for so much. I have my life, my family, I can walk, I can see, I'm not starving, and I have my health amongst so much more.

What are you thankful for?

Dress - Target; Shoes - Bakers; Bag - H&M; Belt - NY&Co
