>>>Hello queens! Happy positive Thursday! What are you feeling positive about today? This week I’ve been really trying to work on embracing the difference between feeling and being thankful. What do I mean by this? I’m (still) reading Thanks! by Robert A. Emmons and he explains the key difference between feeling grateful and being grateful.
“As a feeling, gratitude is a natural response to a particular situation when good things happen to an individual. No one feels grateful when they have lost a job, received a devastating diagnosis or seen their marriage crumble. How could they? It would be an insult to the person to suggest that they should feel grateful in spite of what was happening to them. But gratefulness is not just a feeling. It is also an attitude, a chosen posture toward life that says, ‘I will feel grateful in all circumstances.’
Times that challenge us physically, emotionally and spiritually may make it almost impossible for us to feel gratful. Yet, we can decide to live gratefully, courageously open to life in all its fullness. By living the grateful we don’t feel, we begin to feel the gratefulness we live.”
Wow. Today I challenge to you be thankful for all things, in all times – through all the ups and downs and twists and turns. Be courageous and open to life with a grateful heart and attitude. You can do it! Thanks for reading, have a fantastic day! What else am I thankful for? Find out here.
