Thankful Thoughts 9/09/18

9/09/18

Today I am thankful that I can say “Life is good.”

Recently I posted a birthday greeting to a friend who is my age. In her reply she thanked me and added “Life is good.” That made me smile. Like all of us she has her share of issues to contend with, and yet she is able to remain positive and grateful, and views her life as good.

I started wondering how many of us could say “Life is good,” and sincerely mean it. It isn’t easy. We all have struggles, and worries known to no one but ourselves. I know that I do my share of grumbling, and I see many things in the world that concern me. Yet in recent years I have come to the realization that I am blessed, and yes, life is good.

Attitude is everything. We can focus on the negatives and things we wish were different… and be unhappy; or we can focus on the positives and come to terms with things we can’t change… and learn to count our blessings.

How do you want to spend your days, and what impact do you want to have on others? Me, I want to share some light and spread the word that life is good!

I've been blogging off and on since August of 2006. I adopted the pen name Josie Two Shoes in 2007 as I began a new chapter of my life standing on my own two feet. Now I'm married to the man of my dreams; we live in dusty West Texas with a house full of furkids. I am an Aquarian by birth, and although I am past sixty and slightly frayed around the edges, my fascination with this thing called life continues. Faith, family, and friends are important to me; so are honesty, trust, tolerance, compassion and kindness. I'm pretty up front about most things, so if you want to know something more about me, just ask! :-) You can also reach me by email and find me at my Facebook page.
