I was surprised to discover how a gratitude practice helped me feel more positive about myself and the world. As a friend explained, “you can’t feel hateful and grateful at the same time.” But are we missing out if we keep our gratitudes confined to a journal we keep in a desk drawer? What could happen if we share our gratitudes with the people who helped create them?
Each time I wore these fun, festive pumps I got loads of compliments…and a nagging backache. I wish I could tell you that ill-fitting shoes were the only things in my life about which I’m in denial. Alas, no. I’ve come to realize my relationship with these pumps is similar to a few other not so great habits I have.
