That is until I took this picture of her. Can you see that joy in her face? She is just so happy to enjoy some time outside, warming up her body and getting some fresh air. When she wags her tail as I let her out, she is showing me simple, sweet gratitude.
It made me start thinking about how little time I spend being grateful for the life I have. It’s easy to get so wrapped up in the daily grind of the everyday. We get in a routine and start going through the motions, without giving it much thought. I didn’t think about how grateful I am to have a job where I can sometimes be home with my dog or how grateful I am to have moved to a place where my dog is so relaxed or how grateful I am to have a few minutes to set my intentions for the rest of the day and JUST BE.
This isn’t like having a reaction to seeing a tragic event on the news and thinking “how lucky am I to be where I am”. I’m talking about taking a moment every day to think about your life and show gratitude for what you have, big and small.
