I guess it happens to us all. Some days you wake up and just feel well... Blah. I don't know why it happens. It just does. Well, that is how I felt this morning. Every task seemed extra hard to do. Getting the kids up and off to school was a harder chore than usual, and we of course ran late. I hate running late and rushing. Got back home and looked at all I have to get done and quite frankly just don't feel like doing it. Then the dreaded exercise. Since my weight loss journey I exercise 6 days a week. I do this because if I don't make this a habit I will just slip back into not wanting to do it at all. So, I just tell myself it has to be done.
Then I get on the computer and read a daily devotion and boom... I am hit over the head like wake up Trish.
It was about offering a sacrifice of Thanksgiving to God daily. We all find ourselves feeling down and then complaining, but God wants us to be thankful. Thankful... I know we say we are thankful, but are we really. What is our ratio of complaining to thanking? I know mine is way off most of the time. I am thankful for what I have but what about just being thankful for whatever situation I am in right now. That is tough if there is some problem or trial I am going through.
So, I am going to spend my day today being mindful of what I am thankful for and try to offer up a sacrifice of Thanksgiving as I go about my day. That is bound to turn my blah feeling around.
Tip for the day: Concentrate on what we are thankful for and not for all the negative things !!
