A comment on one of my recent posts reminded me of the accountability that each of us has making a change. I came across this piece written by an unknown author and wanted to share it:
Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.
Today I can feel sad that I don’t have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive. Today I can lament all that my parents didn’t give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that thanks to them, I was born.
Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can embark upon an exciting quest to discover new relationships.
Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do. I can moan because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.
Today I can gripe because I have to do housework or I can feel thankful because I have shelter.
Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping. What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!
What do you think? Do you take charge of change? I would love to hear from you. Here is a link to my profile.
All the best!
