Grateful

 (Photo cred erincondren.com) 

Gratitude is such an overlooked tool in our survival kit. It doesn’t get enough credit and slides under the radar sometimes. 

Gratitude is a game-changer when life is going fantastically wrong. It’s a heart-mender, a push-giver, a sorrow-ender. Without it, life remains dull and, well, lifeless. 

But throw some gratitude into a day or a season that just isn’t working and see what happens. The season may not change right away but your perspective will-

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 5

I’m grateful that I live in a world where Fall happens, where there is pumpkin spice everything and where I get to wear boots and scarves!  

 
Thank you Fall for containing so many of my favorite things!

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 4

I’m so grateful for my partner in this life. This man has promised to take care of me and this family and despite our daily battles with PTSD and traumatic brain injury, he still gets the job done. His quiet faith inspires me to keep going, no matter the circumstances. 
 This picture sums us up–he’s the steady-handed, eyes on the road anchor to my artsy fartsy fluttering about. I would be lost without this guy, my sweetheart, Mr. Wonderful.😍😘❤️❤️❤️❤️

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 1

I’ve decided since its November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner I’m going to (try to) do 30 posts about Thankfulness. There’s just something about gratitude that makes you reset and helps you shift your paradigm.

Feel free to join me, post your own or leave me a comment!
