"Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes of which all men have some." -Charles Dickens
recently my sister reminded me of how i used to write pages and pages of "gratitude lists" and "happy lists." I had them in my journal, i had them hanging on the walls, i had them jotted down in school notebooks, and i think i talked about what i was grateful for a lot. It's not that i'm not grateful anymore, because i am...i feel so incredibly blessed, but, i haven't been taking the time to reflect and be grateful for so many blessings and for the many miracles that daily surround us. i really want to change my focus to gratitude.
