Talking to other people about gratitude reminded me of my half-full or half-empty thought. To me, the answer to the question, "Half full of what?" is GRATITUDE.
Sometimes it's really hard to get in touch with gratitude. This fact is not a secret, its more like a chronic disease. Human beings tend to focus on the empty part, emptiness in their glass and in their lives.
Emptiness in our hearts is one of the most poignant vacant spaces commanding our attention and eating up our time. If we're human, we usually notice whatever we don't have first. For some reason, it's very interesting.
Making a list of what we DO have can flip the switch. It does for me!
