Feeling A Bit Grateful.

I am feeling a bit grateful this Tuesday afternoon.  A member of my family passed away yesterday morning.  I think each time someone special in our life passes, it is a constant reminder to really appreciate what we have NOW instead of thinking we are going to attain that happy place eventually. It is important to remember that life is precious, and any of us could be gone at any second! I once was told to keep a gratitude journal and write down 5 things a day you were grateful for; whether it be someone smiling at you and making your day, that you have an amazing best friend, or that you had an awesome encounter with a stranger. The goal of this journal is to look back during discouraged times (as we are all faced with) and reflect that life isn’t so bad after all. Smile and be thankful. Life is what YOU make it.

Stop worrying about the length of your life…Get up today and be much more concerned about the DEPTH of your life.
