Gratitude Practice

I have not done this in a while and I should do it more often. There are a lot of times when I focus on all the things I have not done or get down on myself. I do not stop and look at all of the great things that I have to be thankful for.

    1. Dexter - The Black Lab

    Sometimes I get annoyed that my dog has a lot of energy and wants my attention all the time.

    But Dexter is a great dog and he is really friendly and loves to be around other people. He listens to me when I need him to and he has brought a lot of joy into my life. I am glad that I have the ability to take care of him and give him a good life and watch over him.

    2. My House

    I need to be more thankful for my house. There are many things that I would love to change about it. I have already changed a lot of things. It is not really my 'style' if we as humans even really have one kind of style. My exterior does not define me.

    My house is great. It is a good size and has a nice pool. Running water, air conditioning, solid roof, garage. What more can someone ask for?

    3. My Parents

    I have never been a parent so until I have my own children I will not be able to understand. There are a lot of times when I do not see eye to eye with my parents. Parents will always look at their children as children in many ways.

    My parents are great. They have always been there for me and did a great job taking care of me: house, food, education, wisdom.

    And now I have become older and am able to help them.

    4. Work

    My working 'career' has always been the area where I am least confident.

    But I have had lots of different jobs. And my current job will definitely not be my last.

    I am grateful that I live in a place where there are lots of different jobs available and everyday there seems to be more jobs coming online that I can do and try. Grateful that I am able to explore different things and figure out what I am good at and not good at without worrying about paying 'the bills'. There was definitely a time when I was worried about paying 'the bills'.

    5. My iPhone

    I really think we live in the best time on earth. We have lots of technology like iPhones and hospitals. And even though the earth is heating up it has not melted yet.

    There are still lots of things in the world to explore.

    And education is right at our fingertips.

    I have used my iPhone to invest. Take online classes. Keep in touch with family and friends. Right idea lists. And take Photos.

    Grateful for this little gadget.

    6. Writing

    I have always enjoyed writing. I am glad that I have the ability to write anything and everything that I want.

    7. Air Conditioning

    Texas has always been hot. But it does seem like summers are getting hotter. Thankful that I have a working air conditioning and that I get to sit in an office each day with air conditioning while I work on the computer.

    8. The Grocery Store

    I do not know what I would do if I had to be a farmer. I do not have a green thumb and I am not that patient. Really grateful that I can go to the store and have a lot of different food options to purchase.

    9. My Car

    Even though I have not always had a great record with cars.

    My Chevy Tahoe caught on fire when I was in my office at work one day.

    But I am grateful that I have a working car and it can get me around the city.

    10. Vacations

    I love traveling and seeing the rest of the world. Next up: Maui in October.
