No matter how real my complaints are they invite me to take stock of what I’m blessed by.
I was at the end of a remarkable work project that consumed a lot of time. On the way home my thoughts were filled with a torrent of complaints about the journey back. They made me feel unpleasant.
Instead of wallowing in my complaints I asked why I giving them my attention.
Yes it was an arduous journey home to return to a busy schedule. But those were not the lenses that I want to choose because they keep me away from being aware of the blessings of life.
As I expressed my gratitude for the work I’d been able to do and the people I worked with I felt thankful; a more healthy energy and equilibrium was accompanied by calm.
Be aware of what you choose to open your energy to
Express gratitude for the things and people that are a blessing
Notice how your valid complaints are seen with new eyes when you choose to name your blessings.
