Happy New Year {Unmellow Yellow}

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. -Melody Beattie

Albeit, a bit late for a new year's post...  Today's crayola color is unmellow yellow.  That's how I feel as of late.  Bright and happy tinged with a bit of psychopathic anxiety.  Near the end of 2013 I decided that for 2014 I would start a gratitude journal and  posted to my Facebook a blurb about people being ungrateful.  Let's just say it was not well received by all.  To sum up that post I basically stated that I don't think one's little homepage of Facebook shouldn't be an outlet for everything that is going terribly wrong in said individual's life.  And that we all (myself included) should be grateful for what we have because there are many others who are happier with less than what we have.  With all that being said it is easy to lose sight of all this and not handle every situation with grace.  I realized this last night as I was writing my journal entry.
