A wonderful guest post today

I follow a great blog that I always enjoy reading. Reinvented in Seattle, is written by Samantha, and she is always good for a daily dose of positiveness, and some fun.
She has written a nice, thought provoking post for today, that we all need to remember.
 

Beep, beep, beep. The alarm on a new friends cell phone went off.

‘excuse me” she said as she turned it off and stood silently for a few moments. When she opened her eyes it wasn’t hard to see the quizzical look on my face. “Everyday I take time to remind myself what I’m thankful about. The alarm is my reminder to stop what I’m doing and mentally list everything and start being grateful.”

 Shock was one word to describe how I felt, but as what she said hit me. How often do I or any of us stop and take inventory of the important things in our lives?

 Stuff happens. Everyday we run into a 100 different things that we can obsess on to bring us down. There are traffic jams, bills to pay, jerks who run their mouths, bosses who just don’t get it… The list is endless.  Don’t let that determine your day. It is so easy to get caught up in the little things and let them turn into big issues.

 Instead when life gives you something to bring down your day ignore it. It’s okay to have a bad day, but you are the person who determines how your day is going to go. When you day starts turning for the worse stop and take inventory. Remember all the positive in your life. Start small if you need too. Think of your family, your friends. Look for all the things around you. How’s the weather? Did someone smile at you or say hello? Did you see anything of beauty on your way to work?

 The more you practice seeing the good in the world the easier it comes.

What have you given thanks for today?

I want to thank Samantha for guest posting today.  I am adding a couple of nice photos I took the other day to show a little bit of the beauty around us, and something we should be grateful for.

  1. I was just going through few sites and blogs yesterday and came across
    your site http://desertravenart.com too. I really liked the way you
    have presented your site. I was reading some of your content and
    really found them interesting and informative. So I was just wondering
    if I can also do something for your site.

    Actually I am a freelance content writer and I love writing articles
    as a hobby on topics related to Scottish jewelry.

    What if I provide you with an unique article as a Guest Post. An
    article that will be informative for your readers. The article will be
    related to your website and will be appreciated by your readers.

    It would be great if you can add a small BIO of mine at the end of the
    article with my related site’s links. I guarantee you that the article
    will be 100% copy scape protected and will be of around 700 words.

    Please let me know if this sound good to you, so that we can start
    working on your article.
