I had a bad day yesterday. Just too much to do. I don’t think a smile crossed my face all day. I was cranky, I was anxious, I was consumed, I was obsessed with my projects, I was mad at my kids (who were being absolute angels).
At the end of the day, when the craziness had gone to bed, I watched this clip on my sisters blog. Watch it, it’s great.
I realized that gratitude is what makes you happy. Yes, that’s a simple thought. But it struck me that everyone in this video had a smile on their faces as they talked about what they were grateful for. And smiles make you feel better.
I’ve found in my life that it doesn’t matter what I have or don’t have, what matters (in terms of my happiness) is how thankful I am for what is.
So, time to stop moping and be grateful. Tis the season, after all.
I think I’m on track for a much better day today.
