Everyday, I set my mind to express gratitude and express appreciation. I said a gratitude prayer everyday. I gave a Thank You comment on Facebook.
All these Thank Yous have given me a positive outlook, an eye quick to see blessings at every corner and to see that the glass if half-full. In between, I seem to have made more friends, create closer relationships and met less grumpy people.
Rather than constructing resolutions, I filled my heart with blessings and found out how fortunate I was. Then I decided to just move resolution-making to Chinese Lunar New Year. My cup is full of love and grace and gratitude.
