My 6-year-old granddaughter and I have an open dialogue about random life stuff and things we don’t understand.
Once in a while I will even share one of my daily readings with her if I think she will “get it” (BTW she gets it better than I do).
Yesterday she grabbed one of my books, “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff… and it’s all small stuff” by Richard Carlson.
“Oh grandma, I like this one,” she says as she brings the opened book my way.
Think of what you have instead of what you want
“Yes this sure is a good one.” (and just what I needed I might add)
I’ve been really caught up in negativity and nonacceptance. There’s a lot of fearful thoughts going on about just about everything and once I get on a roll -watch out- Avalanche!!!!!
Today I’m going right into the solution as my granddaughter has CLEARLY led me to, starting with a plain ol’ gratitude list.
Thank you my wise, beautiful granddaughter. As usual, just when I think I’m teaching them…….
What do you do to help get yourself out of the quicksand of negativity? Do Tell 🙂
