Today, I feel very fortunate to have the incredibly talented artist and blogger Michelle Armas here today sharing her thoughts on the month's theme. As someone who is spending her life on creative endeavors, I think we can learn a lot from Michelle's perspective on thankfulness.
****What am I grateful for? What am I thankful for? You know, I think about this every single day.
I have started a gratitude journal (so very Oprah of me isn't it.) It helps me to get over myself and the problems that I sometimes allow to consume my thoughts. Are they really problems though? Not when I change my perspective a little and I take stock of what really matters and what I really have.
I don't think Michelle has overstated the importance of choice and freedom--that, when you stop and think about the possibility of life without room for choice, it's impossible not to feel thankful every day.
Perhaps it's because she sees the world through artist's eyes, but Michelle has a way to see the positive, the humor, the beautiful in situations. That's also something to be grateful for.
Thank you, Michelle for being here today.
