Attitude of Gratitude...

It was mentioned to me several years ago, by a good friend, that I should try and have a general theme for JusT SpInnIng PlaTes...I was just beginning, and trying to see what I could do, and didn't know if I could "box myself in" with a theme.

I recently had an epiphany!!! I have now been writing the Blog for #NOMORE, a Domestic Violence Awareness blog at www.ozerministriesinc.com, for the last 14 months. It would be a, yes, themed blog. Sometimes I'm really quick; other times am not.

Anyhow, after surviving this past Holiday Season being sick and a BAD bout with depression, and just having a REALLY negative time of it; plus, having another good friend in the midst of a really negative rant ask me "WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR??!", I have decided to try and insert gratitude into EVERYTHING I do, including JSP...I still want to "keep it real", but am going to attempt to insert gratitude even in the negative things.

I DO realize the challenge before me. I want to challenge all of you to seek Gratitude in every area of YOUR life. I'm NOT saying some things still won't suck; but I read a thing on Facebook not long ago, "Rather than complaining about falling down the stairs, say, Man, I got down those steps REALLY fast!!!"

I will really try and NOT be annoying with it, either. Those kind of people drive me bonkers!!!

I have been posting more positive posts on my Facebook page, also, and I recently had a friend tell me they really appreciate them. She almost made me cry, because I had been doing it for myself, and someone else was affected - I LOVE a good two-fer!!!

I also commit to more postings. I'm looking, and I haven't posted since November 27, 2016 - I do apologize, and am commiting right here to more.

Have a good day, and be safe!!!
