“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity...it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~Melody Beattie
There’s no doubt the world has become a different place in recent months, as COVID-19 has formed an unwanted battle we’ve been forced to join. And if we’re honest with ourselves, many of us have felt helpless in the fight!
We’ve struggled to maintain our balance against economic decline. We’ve stood by helplessly as many have fought for their lives. And we’ve been up against a wall of unprecedented challenges that have seemed too big to conquer.
But what if, instead of physical weapons, gratitude became our greatest defense? What if giving thanks in all circumstances—even during COVID-19—was the most effective stance we could take in this unwanted battle?
There is a way to combat negativity, fear, and uncertainty. And it all begins with a heart of gratitude. Here are a few ways gratitude can be your greatest weapon right now.
