The resort my husband and I visited last week was ‘all inclusive’. A part of what was included was dinner and breakfast. Sounds like a great deal, right? The tiny catch is that for those meals, you are seated with random other couples. It’s a nice way to meet other people, but for someone as shy as I am, it can be a little intimidating.
One morning at breakfast a gentleman we were seated with quietly took a moment and bowed his head. He didn’t make a big deal about it, he didn’t look at the rest of us at the table like we each had 3 heads. He just took a moment.
I’m having trouble getting that moment out of my head.
Grace has never been a part of my mealtime ritual. It’s not that I’m ungrateful. I’m very grateful for all the blessings I have in my life – food included. I just never take the time to formally recognize them, and call them out as they occur.
I have noticed that the more time I spend Practicing Gratitude, the more happy and content I am as a person.
So this week, my goal is to try to take a moment to be thankful for the things I usually don’t notice.
Somehow, that seems so very obvious.
What will you do to be happier this week?
