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.💚🧠
