Living In Gratitude: Work Is Either Fun Or Drudgery

Work can either be fun or drudgery.


It depends upon our attitude. So, which to choose? Personally, I like fun!

Attitude is like a muscle. The more you work it, the stronger it becomes, and the easier it becomes to shift it.

Here are 5 things I do to shift my attitude toward gratitude when I’m in a bad mood or not feeling like life is drudgery:

  1. Self-talk: I ask myself, “Hey, do you want to have fun or do you want to feel lousy today? Let go, dive in and have fun!”
  2. Find people to hug and thank them for….
  3. Take a walk to clear your mind. Make a point of noticing the beauty of nature.
  4. Find someone who needs your assistance and help them. This gets you out of ‘self’.
  5. Focus on the good.
