Being Grateful

Here’s a great article I thought you might like – Being Grateful. This was written by Sharon Clark for her Dreaming Miracles website. When you read this, keep in mind that Sharon’s husband was recently diagnosed with Cancer so they’re facing a pretty rough time. Yet Sharon & Colin, most days, still share a positive energy, love and optimism with everyone around them.

I know sometimes, when my day doesn’t seem to be going that well, I can turn it around just by changing my attitude. This often begins by being grateful for the little things… the good things. This helps take the focus off the not-so-good things.

Next time you’re having a bad day at work, think about the good things related to your work – perhaps the flexibility, the pay, the benefits or the fact that you get to go home soon! If you’re having trouble balancing work and family responsibilities, start by being grateful that you have a family and that you have work. If you’re really stuck for ideas, be thankful that you’re breathing – that’s always a good start!

Right now, I am grateful to you for reading this post  🙂

Thank you Sharon, for reminding us to appreciate the little things; the things we often overlook.

Here’s to your business success…



  1. Another inspiring post. Thanks for sharing it! Sometimes we forget what’s really important.

  2. Absolutely! I was worrying about something the other day and then I got an email from Sharon where she was challenging others to list 3 things they were grateful for and to appreciate the little things we often take for granted. It really made me stop and think. I was worrying over something that was so insignificant in the Big Picture.

  3. There are always things to be grateful for – we just ‘forget’ them when we’re in a mess of sorts or going through some tough challenges in life/business. Bringing back to mind those things to be grateful for can help us pull through….. and stay on top of it all.
    Ciao, Elena 🙂
