Gratitude Reality Check
My Back Story
I’m going be honest that I started out in life more as a unhappy pessimist. I wasn’t happy about being unhappy so tried things like PMA and unconditional gratitude as a way of improving things … every time I crashed out, increasingly of the opinion that “it’s just plain unhuman to be grateful about everything all the time
One very dark, depressed day came a realisation that these days are always going to happen and I’m going to be defenceless against them, unless I can find something … anything to lift my spirits. Again … if I can find one small thing to feel grateful about, then I stand a chance of winning over the horrors of my day
I decided to keep a gratitude diary. I was startled to note that as soon as I find something small to feel grateful about, other helpful things start to kick in like figuring the problem out, working out a sensible next step. Something always comes along that helps me make it a better day. For me, that is the reality of gratitude
