Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.—Melodie Beatty
Today I will develop an attitude of gratitude. I reflect on how many people make contributions to my good life. I name and thank—either in person or silently— all the people I know, and see, who do work I am grateful for. I especially take time to acknowledge those whom it is easy to take for granted, such as street sweepers (for keeping our streets clean), garbage collectors (for removing my family’s trash), war veterans (who defended and protected our country), the teachers and principal of our school(s) (for instilling a love of learning), and people who pick up litter (for their contribution to the cleanliness of our neighborhoods). I post a sheet of paper on my refrigerator with the title: I am Grateful For.... Whenever I think of something I wish to give thanks for, I write it down. The sheet is a daily reminder of how rich my life is.
