Gratitude: Have it Your Way

My moments of gratitude may come just before sleep, but for others gratitude often finds a different time to take over. Take CM reader Daria, who sinks into thankfulness while swimming her morning laps. The physical act of pushing through water motivates her not only to appreciate her arms, legs, and lungs, but also the lifeguards that keep her safe and the car that transports her to the pool.

“I find nothing so colors my day than saying “thank you”, before an endless stream of wants and needs barges in,” she writes.

For that, I thank you, Daria.

Thankfullness is therapy for me, especially when I am tempted to focus on things that carry no positive energy. I break these temptations by just showing gratitude for the breath of life. Before long, the “blues” are no longer present.>
