HCB's Journal, 10 August 2012

A grateful heart is the beginning of greatness. Gratitude builds humility as we recognize an act of kindness, service, or caring from someone else. True gratitude is a foundation for faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being. Being grateful leads us to look outside ourselves and turn to the bestower of the blessings.

And the daily gratitude list for my current challenge:

-My Buddies on FS who encourage me daily
-My resolve to "butt-kick" myself to a smaller size
-The love and support of my Dear Husband (aka DH)
-My work - which has meaning and worth to other human beings
-My wonderful companion animals, Bengal Cats, who are my children
-My connection to the Mother Earth and all its splendor
-My physical health

I would not hurt any of us to be more grateful. BTW - you could ski down that weigh graph of y0ours!

When I look back at the times in my life where I was unhappy, I know those were times when I wasn't counting my blessings. If ever I'm feeling down or sorry for myself, I know I can always turn those feelings around when I look at how blessed I am in my life. Thanks for sharing your list. It's inspirational :)
