“Today I will be thankful for the parking spot furthest from the door;
because it means that I can walk!”
WOW! Sure, we often speak of gratitude in this blog.
What I love about what Joe wrote, however, is his excellent re-frame. He is not being grateful for a good break or even something self-evident, such as the many blessings we are given just by being able to walk, talk, see, hear, taste, touch, smell, etc.
No, he’s determined to be grateful — in advance! — for something that might happen that most would not choose to be grateful for but, instead, would tend to resent or allow to upset them.
Gotta’ love it. Well, you don’t gotta’…but it sure seems like the better alternative. 🙂
So, tapping into your creative self, what can you choose to be grateful for that otherwise might be upsetting?
