“Ingratitude is natural-like weeds. Gratitude is like a rose. It has to be fed and watered and cultivated and loved and protected.”

~Dale Carnegie

JAMmer DR shares today’s quote which reminds us that the desired state of living in a world we are truly grateful for takes intentional effort.  For most, the natural state is ingratitude – a feeling of the world being out to get us.  And when things do go well, we tend to take it for granted.  I challenge you to be intentionally grateful for the people and circumstances in your life.  Grateful for the negatives as they provide us the lessons we need to grow.  Grateful for the positive, for we know that every positive moment is precious.
