A year ago, shoveling my driveway would have brought a lot of grumbling and cursing: about the cold, about the neighbors (who never offered to help me), and about the snow plows (that just drove by making the end of my driveway even deeper to dig out). I HATED it. The whole experience made me furious.
This evening as I shoveled my driveway and sidewalk, I was grateful: for being able to work from home today so that I didn’t need to worry about traveling treacherous roads, for the temperatures that were starting to climb, for warm clothes and boots, for a house of my own with a driveway and garage.
Changing your mindset is the most powerful action you can take. It’s pretty simple to begin: just look for the blessings. Once you start noticing them, you will be amazed how much you have to be thankful for.
