Welcome to Feature Friday!

Today, I want to feature… YOU! It’s almost the weekend and I’d like to know how you plan to Lift the World this weekend.

Reflections on Gratitude

I’ve been thinking how quickly life can change. We’re going about our lives, our daily routines, not paying much attention, when suddenly (or so gradually we don’t notice) life throws us a curve ball. Maybe someone we love becomes critically ill, maybe we lose our job, maybe an accident or fire takes away our transportation or home.

In those moments, we gain a new perspective. Those moments bring to our awareness what’s really important… health, family, friends, and security. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could learn to appreciate those things before they are taken away? Wouldn’t it be great if we could do something each day to take better care of our health? Tell our family members we love them? Show appreciation for our friends? Be grateful for our homes, our transportation, the food on our tables, all the little and big things we enjoy every day but often take for granted?

My goal this week is to find something every day to be grateful for that I haven’t noticed until now. Creating an attitude of gratitude is a choice, one that I’m choosing today!
