Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
A man without ambition is dead. A man with ambition but no love is dead. A man with ambition and love for his blessings here on earth is ever so alive.
— Pearl Bailey
Is our glass half full or half empty? We may see ourselves as positive people, but when we take the time to examine our thoughts closely, we may be surprised. We may have a lot to complain about, but so what? We can choose misery or happiness. It’s all in how we see that glass.
Instead of griping about bills, we become thankful for the money that is coming in. Instead of thinking about what activities we’re missing in our lives, we’re grateful for the solitude. Instead of being hurt by what friends and family aren’t doing, we feel blessed we have them in our lives in the first place.
Today I will humble myself by counting my blessings, knowing that without them I would truly be lost.
