grateful

I guess there’s two choices you can make during a No Spend Challenge, or life in general.  That is to be grateful for all that you already have or to be ungrateful because you want more.

In all honesty, this is a struggle I’m met with every day.  Some days I’m so frustrated with our lack of living space, I forget that I have a roof over my head.  Other days, I’m so frustrated that my husband didn’t put the dishes away when I asked, I forgot he just vacuumed and took Sienna out so I could work.

I am blessed.  I need that reminder all too often.

Since starting the No Spend Challenge this month, I’ve been reminded of just how much I do have in my life.  I’m overrun by material items and my little family constantly reminds me that I’m surrounded by love, fun and hope.  I want to start recognizing my blessings before I start to feel an entitlement to something “better”.  Quite often I find it very hard to feel grateful while I’m dealing with a problem or two.

But as the picture above says, Today I am Grateful!

Can you relate?  What are you grateful for today?  Do you have troubles “counting your blessings”?  How do you help yourself to be more grateful?
