TruthI am trying this 1000 gratitude thing because most of the time, I am not a grateful person nor I am an optimist. I guess I see the hard parts of things, and I see the glass half empty.
I want to do 31 days of Praise and 1000 things to be grateful for because I usually am discouraged, grumpy or have apathy.
I work around the house, work in the yard (sometime I like to work in my flower garden) because those are things that have to be done, blah like washing dishes and laundry and cooking. I don't especially enjoy those things. When I realized that I asked myself, "well what do your enjoy?"
I know I enjoy my family.
I used to like to knit, crochet, scrapbook, things like that... now it is ok, but it doesn't excite me. Shopping really doesn't mean much fun. I can't remember the last time I went to lunch with a friend. I enjoy staying home. i am an introvert, trying to figure out hanging out with people and not feeling anxious (or wanting to go home) is a struggle.
I don't want to live a blah life. I know that doing what God wants me to do is fulfilling. I guess I just need to listen to Him and do whatever it is that I need to do.
