If I only had one attitude to pick from, one value to treasure, one concept to choose from, then without a doubt, I’d choose Gratitude.

Gratitude is an attitude that I picked up on some 9 odd years ago, although, I heard about it’s value for so many years before that. I incorporated it into my life and I know that it has made the world of difference to how I view life.

Today, I’m attempting to write a ‘99 love list‘ but turning it into a ’99 Gratitude list’ instead.
