The Gratitude Paradox — 4 Comments

  1. I’m grateful that you reminded me that I have almost eradicated “should” and “have to” from my thoughts. Thank you!
    I’m free too — this is an idea I’m grateful to have in my toolbox! Thanks for reminding me of that also… I think about being free to go pick the tomatoes – and then, I’m grateful we had a good crop this year! Next, I’ll try “I’m free to clean up the boxes in my corner of the garage” certainly gives me a bit more space around that! I’ll let you know how it goes!

    • That’s wonderful, Laura. I think I have eliminated a lot of “should’s” and “have to’s”, but they can sneak in there under different guises! I love how thinking about being free to go pick your tomatoes segued right into gratitude for your crop. Good luck with your garage cleaning, and thanks for commenting!

  2. I’m grateful to have a friend like you, Imogen, who posts blogs that make me ponder. Really, there is always something (many things) to be grateful for, it can just be hard to get in touch with it/them sometimes!
