I’ve been thinking a lot about being grateful lately.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life. Work, commitments, getting the kids off to school / activities / sport. Rush, rush, rush, rush, rush.
Sometimes we forget to find moments in our day to simply be grateful.
In a world where we have instant access to other people’s lives through social media, it’s easy to think other people have it easier or better.
I’ve often heard people say ‘It’s alright for some’, ‘They’re lucky’ and even ‘It’s not fair’ – but don’t ever compare someone else’s highlight reel to your behind the scenes.
We all have our ‘stuff’.
And let’s not forget to be grateful. Yesterday I stepped away from a laundry full of washing and housework and spent the day with my grandparents. Just being with them and being so grateful to have them.
I love these quotes about being grateful. The happiest people I know aren’t without challenges or heartbreak or even tragedy in their life, but they are grateful for EVERYTHING.
Wishing everyone a wonderful day!
