Which type of person are you? Do you grumble and complain before you ever think of saying or thinking thank you? Does every thing you go to appear negative and gloomy at least at first? You are the one making it that way. Just as in the quote above, we all have the choice on how we look at a situation. We can be automatically filled with negativity or find gratitude in everything we do, everyone we meet and in all of nature.
Yes, there is darkness but within that darkness is light and it is seeing that light you will find a blessing. When you look at a rose do you overlook its splendor and beauty and focus on the thorns? Or do you notice the thorns but then give thanks for the wonderful fragrant rose that is there? What if the thorns were there to protect the rose not to harm you? What if there were no thorns the rose could not survive for you to see?
Be mindful this week of your thoughts. Find thankfulness in all things and feel contentment and joy become part of your being. Namaste.
