If you had to rate your thankfulness on a scale of 1-10, where would you fall? I am ashamed to admit I periodically hang out on the lower end of the continuum. Sometimes, discontentment clouds my perspective and I fail to see through a lens of gratitude.
In this world, where we are bombarded with the lives of others, being ungrateful can become an easy trapping. Our neighbor’s highlight reels have the potential to erect a cement wall that blocks the view of all that’s good in our lives.
And it is not that we set out to be this way; for many of us it has been a gradual process. Like a parasite squeezing the last bit of gratitude we have, discontentment latches on to us. In some cases, it is a slow and subtle progression as we grapple with unbearable disappointment in this life.
