Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation. - Brian TracyEven though I know how important it is to live with an "attitude of gratitude" I certainly don't spend enough time reflecting on it.I've only learned within the last couple of years the impact that saying "I'm grateful" can have on your life and those around you. I was challenged recently to write down the 100 Things I am Most Grateful For and wondered initially if I could complete such a task.But by the end, I could have kept going and going. What an unbelievably powerful feeling this seemingly simple list has generated! Here I share my Top 50 plus one because it's so darned important.
