Turn it to Gratitude

I am discovering the profound impact feelings have on my thoughts and attitudes. When something painful happens I have experienced a positive shift when I focus on what I am grateful for instead of negative feelings. It has been said that it is not what happens to us but how we respond to what happens to us. It is my emotional response that can either have a positive or negative affect and gratitude is a very positive emotional response.

I am committed to practicing more gratitude.

Tanya, if there is one thing I have learned about you over the years it is that you are a very thoughtful, grateful person.
