there is no such thing...

There is no such thing as too much gratitude. Did ya know that? Did ya know that the more grateful you are for what you have, the more you will have to be grateful for? Did ya know that when you're in a funk, the fastest way out of it is to look around and find something, be grateful for?

If you woke up this morning, you have something to celebrate. 
If you have food to eat and clothes to keep you warm, 
you have something to celebrate.
If you are loved, by even just one person, 
you have something to celebrate.
If you've ever heard a child laugh or had a puppy lick your face, 
you have something to celebrate.
If you've ever seen a flower in bloom
 or smelled it's lovely fragrance, 
you have something to celebrate.

There are millions of things to be grateful for, if you will 
just take a moment to look.
I know.
I, too, have had my "moments" when my world seemed so dismal.
Yet, I made my way through and found reasons to be grateful.
It's a terrific little "tool".
It may take a little practice at first.
But if you will just take one second to STOP and remind yourself that you are blessed, 
you are well, you are loved...then you will find the secret to living Joy
 each and every day.
It's all about your choices.
I've said it a million times and I'll say it again....
Joy is a CHOICE.
And gratitude is what gets ya there the fastest.
