Gratitude List- Trying to be Grateful

By Angela Carillo on Monday, June, 13th, 2016 in Gratitude List.



It’s not always easy to be grateful. Things happen, People disappoint, and I’m not always in the right frame of mind. Sometimes it’s really hard.


I’m trying to be grateful for the toxic people in my life. They remind me of how not to be.

I’m trying to be grateful when things don’t happen as I plan.  It reminds me to be patient.

I’m trying to be grateful for the person who hit my parked car and left without leaving any of their information. It reminds me to pray for people I don’t like.

I’m trying to be grateful when I have a disagreement with someone. It reminds me that I can love someone and agree to disagree.

I’m trying to be grateful for the occasional headaches and pain in my body. It reminds me to be grateful when I am pain free.


What are you grateful for this week? Are there things in your life that are hard to be grateful for?

  1. Some days it is easier than others to be grateful, thankfully those days occur more often in my life.

  2. Donna says:

    I’m grateful for a strong mind and body. Sometimes it’s difficult to be grateful when dealing with difficult people. We can’t control what other people do, but we can control how we feel about it. I’m grateful for freedom of mind.

  3. Michelle says:

    I’m grateful to be alive and to have a wonderful sister and mother in my life.

  4. Wow, being grateful for the toxic people in your life. That’s a big one. Thanks for the reminder that there are options other than just tossing them out of my life … because that’s what I do. Pragmatic? Selfish? I am so affected by them. Their toxicity is contagious. I just cannot b what I need to be if they are around. Now, I feel kind of self centered. But I have to be.

    • There are some toxic people in my life that I can’t remove Donna Maria. Luckily, there are not many. I try to minimize my contact with them, and I don’t engage in conversation when I’m with them if I can avoid it. Sometimes I imagine myself in a protective bubble where their words can’t drag me down.
