Grievance or Gratitude


Someone asked me the other day, “why are you so happy all the time”?

Hmm …

First of all, thank you.

It comes down to perspective.

Grievance – a real or imagined feeling of resentment over something believed to be wrong or unfair.

Gratitude – the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

The business world is challenging. Life is challenging.

The political climate … more challenging than ever.

There is always something going sideways.

It’s never always fair.

It’s easy to criticize any person, any situation, any entity, over something.

We choose our attitude.

Tuning into grievance … or gratitude has always worked for me.

Give gratitude a try … it always beats grievance … and it’ll take you to happiness.

50-76, sunshine. Pure Michigan.

Make it a great day, everyone!
