Some circumstances can be controlled, but others may occur without any opportunity to change them. Often people take credit when something goes right, but when things fail the circumstances are commonly blamed instead of the individual taking personal responsibility. No matter what circumstances you find yourself in how you react will reveal your true character as a person.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
