FLIP the Gratitude Switch

I have been reading this fabulous book- FLIP the Gratitude Switch, by Kevin Clayson and learning all kinds of great lessons!

So, OF COURSE, I wanted to share with YOU!

"If my circumstances won't change, maybe I can change the way I look at my circumstances, and maybe as a result, they actually WILL change."

WOW! Right?!?

It's EASY to show gratitude and thanks for those things in our lives that are going RIGHT, but all those things that frustrate us??? Much easier to get fed up and show anger or frustration! So NOW the CHALLENGE is showing gratitude for the FRUSTRATIONS.

In other words, when someone cuts you off in traffic, instead of letting your road rage fly, show GRATITUDE to have avoided an accident and that you're safe. When your kid draws on your walls or uses your expensive makeup to make herself "pretty"- show gratitude that you HAVE curious and imaginative kids and appreciate this small portion of their life that will not last long enough.

When you control your reactions to the LITTLE frustrations DAILY and show gratitude with those tiny frustrations, you'll have a much easier time overcoming MAJOR challenges. And when you FLIP your attitude in a moment, you can change the trajectory of your day... your week... your month... your year... your LIFE!

My CHALLENGE to you: Be GRATEFUL in the small moments when you would normally be frustrated and express anger. Do it for SEVEN days and let me know how it impacts you and your family!
