Teeth, spoons, peacocks, blue, ice-cream sundaes. In May of last year, I had an epiphany. I began to list “Three Things I’m Grateful For” every day. Not only did I list them, but I kept them in my mind throughout the day. This made me happy, caused me to smile more, and generally kept me calm and at peace even in situations that could become stressful. I have decided to pursue this challenge again this year and during the month of June, I will meditate on things I am grateful for–not the super spiritual or super profound things, although I am eternally grateful for those. This list will be those mostly unnoticed kind of things that we would miss if we didn’t have them. What would life be like without teeth? Think about it! And what if you had never seen a peacock spread her tail feathers or tasted an ice-cream sundae?
I am going into June being thankful for teeth, spoons, peacocks, blue, and ice-cream sundaes. You’ll see more of my list over at Dare to Be Happy Facebook page, and please feel free to add to my list.
