Thinking Makes It So
Start your day each day in a great mood by simply focusing on the many things you are grateful for. Every day, without fail, I wake up and remind myself to be grateful of the simple things, and there are many. When you focus on what you are grateful for, you’ll always put yourself in a better mood. The human brain is incapable of being grateful and angry at the same time. So choose to be grateful and you’ll find yourself in a great mood.
Remember, contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as waking up on the wrong side of the bed. It’s just that many people simply wake up choosing to focus on what they lack, instead of focusing on the many blessings they have to be grateful for.
Your happiness isn’t about getting what you want all the time. It’s about appreciating what you do have, and being grateful for what you already have. The most beautiful way to start and end each day is with a grateful heart.
When I’m asked if my cup is half full or half empty, my response is that I am thankful that I have a cup. There is an old Irish proverb that says, “I complained about my worn out shoes until I met a man who had no feet, and I bowed my head in shame”. Perhaps Hamlet had a point when he said, for there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. Makes sense to me.
