It’s all about the attitude

We can’t control our lives. We can’t control what happens to us. What we CAN control is how we react to events. I am in the process of dealing with my health insurance company, my doctor’s office and the hospital. All I am trying to do is schedule a simple test. What should be a simple, straightforward request has turned into a two week ordeal with multiple phone calls. Every time I speak with someone on the phone, I get different information. Yes, it is frustrating and yes I am very stressed about this, but I am doing all that I can do deal with the situation. It is out of my hands.

So, what do I do? I can spend my days being frustrated and angry and looking for someone to blame. Instead, I try to live my life with gratitude. I am ever so grateful that I have health insurance. I am ever so grateful that I have a doctor that is concerned for my health and I am grateful that the hospital is following up with me.

I also am trying to calm my mind by looking outside at the pretty flowers. We have this lovely flowering tree in our front yard, a red bud tree. It is in full bloom right now. It is the first thing that I see in the morning when I wake up.

I am also grateful for the early daylight, the pretty flowers, the ability to get up and get out of bed.

What are you grateful for?
