Focus on Gratitude

by Judy

There is so much change happening in my life right now - both big and small. Like for most people, change is hard for me. Whole 'life changing' change is really hard, and making me feel weary.

Waking with a grateful heart is helping me through.  I'm reaching deep to find the good in the midst of the bad. Trying to find the lesson that is right in front of me.  And remembering that change brings new beginnings, as frightening as they may be.

Let gratitude lead you through your day.  Through the hard times, the overwhelmingly sad times.  Through the good days and the bad, start each day with gratitude. 

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” 
Lao Tzu

Beautiful Judy - and I wish you success in focusing on the best. Unfortunately, for people like you and I, who don't find much joy in it, change really IS the only constant. Happily, when I come out the other side, I usually see it's benefits.

A lovely photo and honest, heartfelt thoughts. Thinking of you as you journey through this change because that's all we can do ... journey through it. We can't stop it. Carol's message is full of wisdom. Sending loving thoughts ...

I think change is hard for us all but you seem to have a handle on how to cope with it -- gratitude. I hope it also helps to know that we are all sending you love as well as hopes that things even out soon. xoxo
