It's so easy to complain.
Like, legit, that's often my go-to, to the point where I don't even know I'm doing it. And then sometimes we have the audacity to mask it as venting. Obviously, there's this thought in the back of my mind that I used to pray for the things I'm now complaining about. And when I let that type of gratefulness and positivity go to the forefront of my mind, it's so much easier to find the good in any situation, even the ones I didn't ask for.
Here are a few reasons you should drop the attitude and count your blessings today:
Can't Be Happy Without It
If happiness is the goal, gratefulness is the key. Like the Married With Children song says, you can't have one without the other.
Being grateful and thankful can help you get through the funk of the tough season and process what the aspects that feel like they're trying you in every step, and it helps you endure through it all. I've had to realize that once I get content in a situation that I clearly can't fix, there's so much more peace about it. And it's not about settling and just going with anything that comes to you. But when it comes to those situations that you once really wanted but eventually got comfortable with, it's easy to get complacent and not realize you're taking it for granted and no longer grateful for it. When you get into a mental space of gratitude in any situation, nothing will be able to steal your happiness and joy.
Don't stop get it, get it.
