My teenager Jack is starting to be pretty much a typical teenager – sullen, grumpy, sarcastic, contradictory, lazy, rebellious.
First thing in the morning he’s this big grumpy grizzly bear. Later on, as the day passes, he starts to chill and mellow, til by the end of the day he’s back to being his usual squishy teddy bear persona again.
I find myself reminding Jack that Attitude is Everything. How you want your day to pan out depends on how you behave. A negative, belligerent attitude will only bring you stress and grief. If instead you pivot and change your mindset to one of Gratitude and Positivity, then your entire reality will change. Believe in the best in people, and how people behave and react towards you will change too, leading to a better outcome for the entire day.
Adopt a Positive Attitude of Gratitude, and practise it all the time, day in day out, til it becomes a part of you. And then watch how your whole life changes.
I’d like to share some Pinterest curated quotes on Gratitude and on being grateful, with the hope it’ll make your day and your life better.
