Gratitude In Difficult Circumstances


Two weeks ago, we noted that gratitude is one of the most healthy human emotions. However, there may be some situations or circumstances we find ourselves in where we find it very hard to find anything to be thankful for….for people we work with or a certain situation seems so difficult. I am not advocating being fake and insincere.  It is not easy, but be intentional and resolve not to let circumstances steal your joy or gratitude.

Find the blessings in the difficult time your team faces. Be thankful for the opportunity to grow as you try to work through that tough situation. Be grateful for the opportunity to repair a relationship. When others on your team see your thankful spirit in the middle of a hard situation, it can inspire new energy!
