Great work by all this morning.
When in occasional short-term or long-term struggles it is helpful to take on an attitude of gratitude. It may not seem like it, but there is opportunity for gratitude in just about every situation. It is often a challenge for me to remember this, but it does work. Yesterday I had a rough day at work and was whining about some tasks that were difficult. I then realized my poor attitude and reminded myself that I was grateful that people pay me to solve certain problems. This attitude can be difficult to employ during certain times; however there is gratitude to be acknowledged in most situations. I am reminded of when my father passed away and the sadness that never truly leaves; however I am grateful for the 72 years that this world was blessed with him and the love and guidance he showed me.
