How did you show gratitude this year? Look at what you see in the mirror. How does it change if you view yourself with eyes that can only look forward? What did you change your mind about in 2013?
I’m grateful. I’m grateful for a great year. I probably would have been satisfied with it not being horrible but have to again say that having to look back on the year is very revealing about how amazing it really was. Yet since I didn’t realize this until the very end I don’t think I’ve been very gracious. I can’t think of anything other than saying Thank you to those closest to me. The prompt mentioned a gratitude journal. That seems like a great idea moving forward. I hope to be grateful for a blog post or a run on a daily basis.
I will only accomplish this by beginning to look forward instead of continuing to punish myself for past decisions. I am grateful for everyday but I need a nudge every once in a while to remind me of how lucky I am for every breath. I like this view of me a lot better. I can tell others do to. I had a hard time coming to terms with the fact that people don’t think about me as much as I thought they might. Of course people think about me I suppose what I meant was they aren’t as judgmental as I once thought them to be. everyone’s dealing with their own world.
