Day 354 – LSS Attitude of Gratitude – Hold on to the positive – There is always something to be grateful for.

With all the awful things on the news I have severely cut back on what I expose my brain cells to. I can handle reading about the important facts without being bombarded with the hourly news tirades. I have little to no respect for people who don’t care about the masses they are supposed to protect.  Our world is in a sorry state and I fear for my grandchildren’s quality of life. 

In an effort to protect the neurons in my brain I choose to look for positive things in my world. The blogs I read are usually one way to feel positive. I enjoy reading what is going on in other’s lives. I enjoy the varied perspectives they bring forth. I get so much value form all the blogs, vlogs, and videos that are kind and uplifting. There is so much to explore in this new world I am a small part of.   

My circle of influence is small. It was greatly reduced when I retired. I am learning to exist in a small bevy filled with loved ones. I can find many more positive things in my circle than in the big bad world outside my circle.   

As I examine my tiny existence for positive things I can usually succeed. Today was a day for joy. I was given great news at a doctor’s appointment. My relief was palpable. The rest of the day I took care of myself. I have loved ones who rejoice with me. I have family who are almost as happy as I am.

As I journey on this new path of remission I am grateful for all the positive things I can find. I am grateful for the people on my chosen Facebook groups who give me advice and provide knowledge. I am grateful for the comfort food I can prepare and eat. I am grateful for the audible book I can listen to. I am grateful for my friends and family who care about me . I am grateful for my Annie. I am grateful for my daily practice of grounding. I am grateful for my daily meditation. I am grateful for a functioning brain. I am grateful for the strength to not give up and to search for ways to help my body repair and renew itself. I  am grateful for my tribe. They make my life better.

  1. Sending all good energy for an remission of whatever sort.

    I agree that the news is NOT a positive thing, even as I’m aghast at news from the U.S. I read the NYT and listen to NPR periodically here in Canada, but still have a delightful distance from the drumbeat.

    I’m not willing as a citizen to give up following it entirely, but it is useful to limit one’s exposure!
