Attitude of Gratitude... 30 Days of Thanksgiving! Day 30


DAY 30 As I sit and write, I hear wind chimes singing their song near by. I find them to be very soothing, as they sing in the wind. I remember a time when my neighbor's wind chimes were a constant irritation to me. I think back then, my mind was cluttered with the worries of life and all I could hear was noise - irritating, grating, seemingly never ending noise. But not now.


I welcome the gentle ringing and clanging and singing as the chimes hit together, making music. How often have those around us caused irritation when they hit up against us, our thoughts, opinions and values? Through out 2020, I've come to realize many people, posts, blogs, articles, tv programs have hit up against many people making anything but music or pleasant sounds that ease the stresses of life. I've had the opportunity to choose to allow the sounds of disagreement, to either take me down or feed my soul. Sometimes, I've had to tune out certain negativity. Other times, I've been able to allow it to help me focus on the good in whom it is coming from, as well as the way it is shaping who I believe I am in the situation.

Do you love wind chimes or do they irritate you? Next time you hear some chimes making melodious music, pay attention to how you respond to it. Learn from the experience and enjoy the sounds of life. This is the last day of the 30 Days of Thanksgiving, but I encourage you to continue a daily practice of gratitude!
