Negativity is a sly characteristic. I’m not sure when or how, but it has slowly crept in and taken over my attitude. But I’m fighting back. I’m not willing to accept negativity as just being part of who I am. Because it’s not.
A while back, I happened upon Holy Experience while Ann Voskamp was working through her 1000 gifts…looking for the blessings in life and marking her gratitude. Although I immediately wanted to experience this same journey, I put it off. And I continued putting it off.
I haven’t followed Ann Voskamp’s blog for quite some time, but I also have not forgotten her challenge for readers to practice gratitude.
Today, I’m starting my own list. As I live the ordinary moments of everyday, I will be looking for, seeking, relishing the blessings in my life, and I will be marking them here, on Mondays. I don’t know how long this journey will take. But however long, I have hope that it will forever change my attitude.
