A Fool’s Life

A fool’s life is empty of gratitude and full of fear.

Ancient Greek Proverb

Some of us develop mind tricks or habits in order to cultivate a daily focus on gratitude. Sometimes we get busy and forget that for which we should be grateful.

If our life is filled with gratitude, there is no room for fear to creep in.

This reminds me of my typical New Year’s reminder. Don’t do resolutions or goals. Decide what kind of person I will be in the new year.

Meeting a person whose life is filled with gratitude is a joy. It makes that day so much better.

Meeting a person whose life is void of gratitude can ruin our attitude for the day. Or longer.

I choose gratitude. And quickly refocus when I slip.
