A Grateful Mind is A Great Thing to Have…

This morning, I was looking over some posts on twitter by someone who is following me, and I came upon a quote from Plato: “A grateful mind is a great mind, which eventually attracts to itself great things.”

I began working with EasterSeals as a camp counselor for one of their camps for people with physical disabilities. I suddenly became grateful for what I had previously been taking for granted. Sometimes stepping out of one’s comfort zone is can be good as it makes us appreciate what is around us most of our lives.

Although I still have gait issues with my left foot—I suponate, which is the opposite of pronating—I’m grateful that I still have use of my legs. There is so much that the majority of people in this world should be grateful for that we often take as a given, it is humbling.

“A grateful mind is a great mind, which eventually attracts to itself great things.” The book, The Secret, focuses on the law of attraction—that if a person is giving, he/she will be the recipient of what he needs.

Just like the aliens from Toy Story say, “You saved us. We are eternally grateful.” Thus we should be.

    I am very grateful to Jesus for allowing me to be a survivor of a tbi. It has been a long and painful journey for me but with Christs help I know that I will be in the land of glory when he calls. Christ is the good shepherd and I belong to his flock.Amen. Maybe if I hadn’t suffered a tbi I wouldn’t have the opportunity to know him as my Lord and savior-Amen.

    That is a great saying by Plato. It is so true though.
