There are days when I wake up and instantly know that today is going to be a great day! My confidence soars, I have a pep in my step, all the songs on the radio are my favorite. I don't feel bloated, my hair looks fabulous. Nothing bothers me, not even the stuff that usually is annoying. My heart bursts with gratitude for my blessings.

 My biggest and most precious blessing!

My biggest and most precious blessing!

But truthfully, those days can be few and far between. There are days when I'm riddled with doubt, lost and feeling completely helpless. There are days when I'm angry at my circumstances or that life isn't moving the way I want it to. Sometimes all my hard work can seem like it's for nothing, and that's when I have to literally stop and tell myself to straighten up and fly right! In other words, change my attitude to one of gratitude.

Because truthfully, I am wholeheartedly grateful.....

that we live in such a diverse and unique world.

for choice.

for the clients who have remained loyal to my business.

for the opportunities I've received and the headaches I've avoided.

that I get to do what I love to do and have such an amazing support system.

for the gifts God's blessed me with.

for individuality - that I see things differently than everyone else. 

for my sense of humor, because Lord knows, I need it to deal with life.

And most of all, I'm grateful for the freedom I have to post what I want, to worship a loving God without persecution and to be myself without fear.

We all need to learn to live life with an attitude of gratitude. Today I challenge you to think of one thing you are grateful for!
