The question has been asked, “Have we not reason to be filled with gratitude, regardless of the circumstances in which we find ourselves?” It is true that for the small majority, who truly find themselves drowning with life’s troubles, it can be a daunting task to place our gratitude before a hopeless, negative attitude. Life certainly comes with its fair share of trials and from what I know, no one is exempt. However, I have observed that those who choose to be thankful, regardless of their circumstances, have a far better chance of enjoying a full recovery once the storm clouds pass. In some instances, this may include recovery from serious injuries, harms and losses. In short, gratitude can be a remedy for the trials in which we face. Think about it. Gratitude can actually help you overcome you everyday trials.
Emma, our trusty full time paralegal, has suggested, “Don’t curse the road that got you where you are!” There is wisdom in this. We are all individually blessed. If you look close enough, you will see that regardless of your present circumstances, you cannot number the blessings in your life. I have certainly been blessed by a variety of associations throughout the years. Specifically, I have been blessed by parents who cared about my character, friends who cared about my belonging, and associates who cared about my potential. No one is alone. Someone, seen or unseen, has touched your life for the better. If you agree, please be willing to share.
Sharing your gratitude can literally take the sting out of life. It just feels better. I encourage everyone to try it during this busy holiday season.
All the best,
