Giving Thanks Should Be a Daily Duty For Me

Taking a run at Five Rivers and thankful for it.

I don’t think about what I’m thankful for often enough.

Instead, I tend to get caught up in the negative, I dwell in the dark rooms: things gone wrong, failures, mishaps, misfortunes.

It’s hard for me to admit this, and nothing to be proud of. I have to fight against the shadows and remind myself to experience gratitude.

I have family and friends who love me and I love in return. That alone makes me a lucky man.

I have good health, a stable home. I have time to explore my desires and passions. I have beauty all around me. Some of my dreams have come true.

For this day I give thanks to all the positive forces and influences and people in my life.  I hope I have the good sense to feel the same way tomorrow.
