The lens of gratitude

Thursday November 24, 2011 #371

 “Life is always going to contain a little darkness, but we get to decide whether or not we recognize and appreciate the light.´

~Lori Deschene

Happiness and satisfaction in our lives is often dependent upon how we choose to perceive our circumstances.  Your life with all of its challenges would be a dream life for millions of others who face true misery.  The point is not to ignore challenges, but rather to see them in context and with gratitude for all that is good and right in your life.  It is through the lens of gratitude that we can work through most challenges we face.  Choose to see the possibilities and take action to better your situation despite the darkness.
