Statement of Gratitude

The GRATITUDE Challenge

Monday Morning Power created this fabo MeMe and asked that we all participate by making a personal deposit in the Gratitude pool. Great thinking. (Note - - play if you like. Just click on the "read more" link below and follow his clever instructions).

Here's my dump:


I am grateful for my position in life, and who I have become because of the choices I have made. I am calm --> Nuf said.

Peace out.
footnote: thanks, Mel for creating a positive place to hang. *squeezies*

1) Compose a "Statement of Gratitude" (Why are you grateful and what are you grateful for?) This can be serious or funny.
2) Post this statement with a creative title.
3) Copy from "START COPY*" through "*END COPY*," and paste at the end of your post. Add your site to the end of the list.
4) Tagging is optional but encouraged.
5) Once completed, leave me a comment with the link to your post or email the link to Yes (at) AreYouGrateful (dot) Com
6) I will add your post to my site with a link back and add your site to the main list.
7) I suggest keeping your list current so that everyone who participates gets maximum benefit.

Go HERE for more details (optional.)

In order to be able to achieve and maintain happiness we need to, actively, be able to do two things:

1) Complain and then let go (Dump the baggage, the roadblocks to happiness.)
2) Openly Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.)

After all, everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to accept the challenge, please follow the appropriate link and do so: "Are You Grateful?", "Complain Complain Complain."Contributors to "Are You Grateful?" & "Complain Complain Complain" are: 1-Attitude, the Ultimate Power 2-Max 3-DianaCA's Metamorphoses 4-Mental Poo 5-My Thoughts 6-Baba Doodlius 7-Wake Up America 8-Life is a Roller Coaster 9-Life and Me 10-pinay mommy's love blog 11-My Happiness Haven 12-And Life Goes On for a Filipino Mom 13-Blessed Sanctuary 14-Expressions And Thoughts 15-Memories by Jenn 16-Reminiscence of My Adventures 17-In the Life of Mne 18-Juliana's Lair 19-Pinay Wahm 20-Lucid Creativity 21-Winged Words 22-Irresistible Fascinations 23-A Little Time 24-See Me For What You Will 25-Greatest Reviews 26-ETC ATBP 27-Gandacious 28-We Are Family 29-Journey to this thing called LIFE 30- 31- 32-BaReFooTeD Me 33-Uncomplicated 34-Points of View 35-Pride & Prejudice 36-Colorful World 37-Nora's Notes 38-A Daily Walk With Bill & Gina 39-Strange but True 40-Everything Under The Sun ( Beth Rebokon ) 41-Kaleidoscope 42-Fil-Oz Blog 43- 44-Comedy Plus 45-Blogging by Sandee 46-Soul Meets World 47-Mae's Memoirs 48-Beyond the Rave Reality 49-Amori, poesie, arte, chat by Hanna 50-Attached at the Hip 51-Carver's Sight or is that Site? 52-Empress Reviews 53-Simple Pleasures In My Heart 54-Lourdes' mia 55-A Grateful Heart 56-Majorsleepyhead 57-Scrappy n Happy in Ohio 58-CHOC MINT GIRL 59-Extraordinary Things 60-ZOOROPAZOO 61-BeNolSatuEm 62-As The World Turns 63-Your Caring Angels 64-Life Is Wonderful To Know Everyday 65-Sugar Magnolias 66-Little Peanut 67-Creative In Me 68-Me and Mine 69-Pea in a Pod 70-the diary of the Pink & Brown Wedding 71-good thoughts, good trades, good life 72-My Blog - all things me 73-Rainbows 74-Little Corner of Mine 75-Me, Myself and I 76-My Planet Purple 77-Amel's Realm 78-A Handful of Surprises 79-A Detour 80-Something Purple 81-Vanity Kit 82-Are You Grateful? 83-A Simple Life 84-BlogTips.Com 85-Balitang Kalye 86-Mariuca 87- Emila Yusof 88-A Total Blog 89-My Life in this Wonderful World 90-MommyAllehs 91-Things That Suck 92-A Mother's Stuff 93-Princess Vien 94-My Inner Thoughts Revealed 95-Roxiticus Desperate Housewives 96-Apples Of The Eyes 97-Nita's Random Thoughts 98-Nita's Corner 99-Thomas Digital Services 100-A Mother's Thoughts101-Meltwater.

Better late than never.....

Your “Gratitude Statement” has been posted on the “Gratitude Site.” The URL is < >. Don't forget to come by and copy/paste the current list of participants back to your post. Doing this frequently insures maximum link benefit for everyone who participates. And by keeping your list current with mine you won't have to respond to individual participant requests to add them to your list. Staying current is optional. However, if you do stay current, you will maximize the “link-love” for everyone who participates. My suggestion is to schedule a visit to < > once every couple of weeks and add the new participant links.

Please let me know if there are any changes that you would like to make to the post.

Thanks for participating. If possible, try to get others to participate; again, totally optional. Also, you can contribute as many “Statements of Gratitude” and/or “Complaints” as you wish.

that is a great statement. If only everyone could see that they have a choice to be a victim or to be a survivor. We can't control the crap that life throws at us but we can control how we respond to it. God you inspire me! You ROCK my wonderful friend!

And thanks for the kind words you left on my blog. I have been MIA so much lately! I have to get back in the swing of things.

Loving your gratitude deposit:).
