Its All Joy.
My first response is to be negative.
To point out the wrong things.
To see the faults.
I hate the plastic bags floating around in our beautiful town.
Why can’t people just do it right.
But a friend said today… We can’t live by your standards. Give us a break. We need it.
And he’s right.
Ons this journey of looking for the essentials in life, looking for a happy life, this is one of the things I need to deal with.
I need to learn to see the beauty in everyday life.
I need to speak out that what I love and enjoy, instead of naming the things I see that go wrong and need improvement.
It is a serious battle in my life.
Like, a genuine battle.
The annoying thing is that I am really good in pointing out what other people need to do. But they are actually the things I need to do.
So instead of preaching others, I need to start taking my own advice :(.
It comes with a lot of humility. Knowing that I am also making mistakes – like I don’t know :(.
If you look at the divine plumbline that’s the case often.. One side is PRIDE, other side REJECTION. If I fear rejection, I go into pride. But then my pride gets jerked down and I go into rejection.
This is the day that I am going to deal with this non sense.
From today I am giving myself a serious challenge to be grateful.
And I am going to write them down.
Ann Voskamp was right with her 1000 gifts. Writing them down.
I need to read her book again.
This blog is my journey on the road to Living Gratitude.
But here it is.
Journey with me!
