I recently watched this short video....
I love it! It reminds me of a wonderful talk by President Dieter F. Uchtorf- Grateful in any Circumstances. If you don't have time to read the whole thing, here are a few of my favorite points:
-What takes away bitterness? What makes life sweeter? What makes life joyful? Being grateful!
-Be grateful not only for things, but have a spirit of gratitude.
-See it as a disposition. A way of life. Instead of being thankful for things (although this is good too), also be thankful for the circumstance of things.
-The choice is ours.
-Don’t limit your gratitude on the things you lack.
-Don’t murmur because of your afflictions.
-Be grateful- no matter what.
-Choosing to have a spirit of gratitude will bring us true joy and great happiness.
...but if you do have time to read it...do! It's worth your time :)
