Mark my words – the people who incessantly whine about this snowy winter, are the same people who will say in a couple of months, “It’s such a humid, gross summer.”
And when you fantasize about winning the hundred million dollar Powerball jackpot, they’re always the ones to say, “Do you know how much they’ll take in taxes?”
However, I shouldn’t cast too many stones because I’m not entirely innocent. From time to time, I witness a few complaints escaping from my own lips as well.
Are we ever content with anything?
I’m on the verge of giving sermons on mounts about weight loss coffee (because it works for everyone I share it with), but I’m also convinced we need to go on a collective diet.
Forget about carbs or hydrogenated fats for a moment. What we need to do, is to keep ourselves from ingesting negativity.
Because you are what you eat and we need to substitute those empty calories with nutrient dense gratitude.
Let’s take a 24-hour challenge. For the next day, let’s replace any complaint in our head with a simple, “thank you.”
It’s called Active Appreciation and I swear it will change your life.
I swear it will.
“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.”
– Meister Eckhart
