Can I just say something… many of us go through life not ever really knowing if we are having an impact on the world around us. We get up, go to work, pay the bills, try to relax, and try to be good people. The Daily Grind doesn’t always feel conducive to fulfilling our life’s mission. Well, I want you to know that by you taking just a couple minutes a day just to feel gratitude will completely and totally change the trajectory of your day. Think about what that means. Simply because you chose gratitude at some point today you are far less likely to snap at your child or spouse, or shake your fist at that dude that just cut you off, and because you are in a different state of mind, you may offer what you think is a meaningless smile to a stranger instead of a searing scowl. The stranger observes your smile, maybe even wonders a little why you have that smile on your face, and maybe, just maybe a tiny one breaks across their face as well. When their smile breaks maybe their anger or anxiety breaks a little too and they feel some little speck of light deep down inside, and maybe that light lingers, and causes them to offer another tiny smile to another passerby. You may think that you personally flipping the gratitude switch during some tiny moment today won’t have some sort of butterfly effect on the world… but it WILL!! Or at least it certainly can!! I’m so thankful to know the simple but eternal power of gratitude. So the question is, do I roll the dice and see if me flipping the gratitude switch changes the world for the better today and trickles just a little more love and light on a sometimes dark and dreary world, or do I hoard my good will and stew in my stubborn selfish way. Today, I choose gratitude, I choose light. Today I choose to do my tiny little part to change the world!
