C.S. Lewis said, “We ought to give thanks for all fortune: if it is good, because it is good, if bad, because it works in us patience, humility and the contempt of this world and the hope of our eternal country.”
What do you think of that? Do you agree?
Sometimes when we make a list of all the things we are grateful for, the “bad” or unfortunate things in our life are never added to it.
But today, that’s going to change.
Today’s Wakeup Wednesday is about creating
Your Personalized List of Blessings.
And that includes the good and the bad.
Today’s Wakeup Wednesday is all about waking up to seeing the bad that is in your life that is actually GOOD. It’s about opening your eyes to finding the abundance of blessings and beauty you have in all situations every single day. It’s about awakening the gratitude within you to help you see that right here, right now, you have what you need.
So grab a notebook to keep your record . . . or grab your phone and make the list your desktop . . . or grab a notecard and stick it on your bathroom mirror, but keep this list somewhere you will see it often, and where it will be protected. Showing reverence and respect for your gifts and blessings is part of giving gratitude for them!
Each Wednesday I will post a challenge to list FIVE things you are grateful for. But not just any five things . . . these five things need to fit the criteria for that day’s challenge.
And today’s challenge is:
List 5 things you are grateful for that seem to be an unfortunate event or circumstance in your life right now.
