Keeping the Feeling

Being grateful is a state of being. It can be fleeting for some. It takes work…and practice.

I recently heard a speaker say that 50% of people are born with the “grateful gene”.

Gratefulness can be grown or it can dissipate. I prefer to grow mine.

Part of doing so is digging deep and always using positive words…about life, others etc. Using negative language only perpetuates negativity.

As an older woman I think it is important to lead by example. If others are following you on your journey, show how easy it is to be grateful by way of positive language.

It’s easy to get caught up in negative thoughts especially during times of adversity. These are the times to remain grateful. Extremely challenging but so, so worth it.šŸ’ššŸ§ 


My life has made me grateful for the little things. My work is my passion. I have worked with Seniors for 30 years. I have seen the way we view aging. There are changes coming. In our attitude and our self discovery. Aging is an awesome time of inner growth and development of who we are. We become who we were always meant to be. I love it!
