  • Attitudes of Gratitude

    The other day while waiting for a friend at one of our favorite coffee shops I ran accross the following book: "Attitudes of Gratitude in Love" by M.J. Ryan.

    One of the things she says is: "when we get stuck in a rut of negativity...things...may be invisible to us...by assuming the worst about the other person, we make it so by under-noticing the good. Conversely, when we assume the best, our eyes are open to all that we are being given, and there-fore we are able to receive it"

    Otherwise [we] may end up...throwing away something of value because [we] have deemed it worthless.
    p.92, 93.

    I would like to add a thought of my own to this, sometimes, just being able to take my shoes off out in the middle of no-where and being able to read without all the chaos of the world screaming at me, because it may feel slighted for my failure to give it my undivided attention 24/7, is all I need to recharge my emotional, spiritual and physical batteries, thus empowering my mind, body and soul for what is required of me in my daily life [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Being Nude, does not always have to mean being completely naked of textiles/clothing...sometimes all that is needed is taking ones shoes off in the middle of no-where [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

        Good thoughts...we should always keep our eyes open for the 'little miracles' that come into our lives every day.

          There is too much negativity in the world, and not enough gratitude, not enough "Thank you", not enough kind words, not enough "I love you".

          Getting away from all the negativity and enjoying the beauty around us can do wonders for our well-being.

            Green,
            Thank you for this positive point to ponder. I think you are right, there is so much enjoyment and good around us we just need to take time and see it.
