“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” G.K. Chesterton
Ssssshhh… don’t tell anyone, but I’ve discovered the secret to contentment. It’s simple, but difficult.
Are you ready?
It’s a two part system. First, you turn your whining, fears, and needs into prayers. Then you start thanking God for all of the blessings already in your life. That’s it.
Nope, I’m serious. That’s it.
Yes, you may feel silly. It may feel forced. At first. But it changes. And then you change.
I’ve done this. I still do this. It works! A month or two ago I was talking to a friend who was struggling with her career. As I told her about all of this she looked at me like I was a simpleton. “Don’t look at me like that! I’m telling you this works! Try it for a month. If you don’t come back and tell me it changed your life I will buy lunch next time! But if it works for you, then you owe me lunch!” So, where should I make her take me when we get together next week?
Try this. You have nothing to lose and so much peace, joy, and contentment to gain. As always, I wish you MUCH joy!
