Happy Gratefulness

Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in life and concentrate on what is wrong. Today I'm trying to turn the corner and be grateful for what is good in my life.
 Right now in this country we are going through lots of hardships but as a nation we are far more richer than most countries. Most of us have a roof over our heads, food to eat, clothes to wear, a job, and money in our pockets. Choosing to be thankful for the simple things in life helps us to remember that the little things that annoy us aren't important. Being content with what we have and where we are in life is hard. We have to stop and think and breath in the moment. This helps us to remember that things aren't as bad as they seem. What are you thankful for in your life today?

These lovely shops feature some wonderful items that remind us to be thankful and happy!
1. Count your blessings.
2. Start a gratefulness diary.
3. Remember someone always has it worse than you.
4. Don't get tunnel vision you are not the only one.
5.  Do things that make YOU happy.

  4. I am thankful I found photography b/c I never thought of myself as an artist. It has helped me feel better through some tough times. I am also happy to have family and friend who support my ever changing goals in life. Sometimes I am all over the place and they support me anyways b/c they figure I will find my way. :0)
