Giving Thanks

Filed under: Uncategorized — sakaco @ 8:48 pm

In her book, Giving Thanks, M. J. Ryan states, “As far as I can tell, gratitude is generated in two ways—one, by a spontaneous upswelling of the heart toward the wonder of life and all its particulars, and two, by  a conscious decision to practice looking at what’s right in our lives rather than focusing on what’s missing.

You don’t have to wait for the FEELING to have the experience. Rather,by training yourself to count your blessings, you can experience the feeling in all its majesty. It’s a discipline of the heart that will bring you greater joy and contentment every single day of your life.”

Have a great week counting your blessings!  sandy
