Taking the Time

Taking the time every day to recognize what
you're grateful for helps keep things in
perspective. Gratitude carries you through the
tough times, and gives you the strength to surpass
the stress of challenges.

Reflect on your family, your friends or the place
where you live, and the satisfaction they
bring you. Think about your good health and your
mental or physical talents. Consider the pleasure
you receive from a phone call with a friend or
a laugh you shared with your children.

Look back on small and large moments - the affection
of a pet, your success in the garden or a deep and fulfilling
relationship. These are all things that nourish gratitude.
And gratitude makes life worth living.

Jane Powell
