Grateful

Well its as good a time as any to talk about being grateful and not only saying it but showing it.  We all have something most of us many things to be grateful for.  It is amazing how we can move away from gratitude to taking things for granted at light speed.  There are many things in our lives that would be completely heart breaking if taken away yet we take them for granted.  Things like health, shelter, a hot shower, food, friends, jobs and relationships.  I am very grateful for the things and the people/relationships I have in my life today.  I try to show it too but that was not always the case at one point in my life I took everything for granted and didn’t really do a hill of crap for anyone and I was miserable totally focused on what I didn’t have.  Today much of the same things materially are in my life and I am grateful for of them but the relationships are far better cause I don’t take them for granted.  I try to focus on the positive cause it impacts others positively and hey its a lot better than being miserable all the time trust me I know.  But do we show we are grateful?  I sure try to and I will give you some examples.  I have a job its a pretty good job, well the best I ever had so I show up to work and do the best I can on any given day.  I have family and friends I love so I try to be there for them and let them know how much they mean to me.  I dig the companionship my cat gives me as well as the laughter he causes on a regular basis so I feed him, pet him and give him some treats.  I have a girlfriend who when I was single I would do a lot to get she is awesome and a big part of my life so I try to do nice things for her like open a car door, do some dishes and all kinds of stuff.  The point is people tend to take a lot of stuff for granted, if we are truly grateful for stuff show it.  Sometimes we treat strangers better than the people who have been around us showing support and love its time to stop all that.
