:: being thankful

Do you ever struggle with being thankful for all the things in your life?

Do you complain about your life, wish you had more?

Ever wish for less?

Since our recent move I have really been struggling with just being thankful for all the good gifts I have in my life. Does it really matter that my house isn't as large as it was before, that my bedroom doesn't have the fireplace it once did. There are so many things I miss about my previous home, yet I wasn't always happy with it either. I am apparently the most ungrateful person alive. I have everything a person could possibly want or need, but somehow the vision of my life in my mind isn't being met.... my Life isn't Perfect.


I know there truly isn't such a thing here on this earth, yet it's what I continually seem to strive for. My minds image of perfection anyway.  It's a characteristic I really want to end...I just want to find happiness in what I have now...not what I could have, or did have before.

I wish I were more cup half full rather than cup half empty.

I need prayers to change my thinking.

I love the lyrics from Sheryl Crow's 

"Soak up the Sun"

It's not having what you want
It's wanting what you've got

{ words to live by }

How do you stay thankful?

{peace, love & hugs}
