The Attitude of Gratitude

Every day, I am grateful for something (at least 3 things). Today has been one of the busiest days I have had. I have multiple deadlines and am still working since I received a layoff notification. This morning, I was grateful that I was able to get some sleep last night. Sometimes, meditation is the only thing that keeps my nerves at bay. Looking back in retrospect, I am also grateful to be as busy as I am because it prevents me from focusing on the fact that I am being laid off. Instead, I only have time to focus on the solutions. That couldn’t be more perfect.

Earlier this afternoon, I was grateful for clear thought; it is a much sought-after commodity with everything I am currently going through.

This evening, I can tell that I am going to be grateful for my bed and clean sheets. The little things like clean sheets after a nice, hot shower are things that delight me to the point of falling asleep with a smile on my face.

In the past, given the knowledge that I was to be laid off a job, I would never have been thinking of gratitude. I would have panicked and hustling to find something else (and I am doing a little of that now). But, it would just be amazing if I could find my dream job now that I am so open to it. I can see myself at my desk, working from home (something I am doing currently).

I didn’t have to look very hard, but there is one more thing I am grateful for right now and that is Unsplash. I love the photos that are royalty-free. These photographers are so gifted and charitable to allow these photos to adorn my site.

As always, thank you for reading!
