“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.” Melody Beattie
I believe it really does work – practicing gratitude – writing down four or five things each day that you are grateful for. Do this for a year – and many self-help experts say your outlook on life will be more positive and emotionally healthy.
I work on this personally because I’ve found it to be true. Sometimes it’s harder than other times, but practicing gratitude for me delivers an eye-opening realization on even those days that nothing seems right.
But today, this week, the last few days of 2015 – I know for sure how very grateful I am for all of you – for the families I get to know and share with every day – and for the awareness that parenting can be challenging, exhilarating, exhausting, lovely.
And it takes gratitude to recognize, accept and appreciate all that we meet on our parenting journey.
Wishing all of you a beautiful and grateful 2016.
