Walk and Be Grateful for Everything

. at . Leave a comment

On this fourth day of Thanks Living, I purposefully choose to walk and appreciate everything and everyone I see.

“Gratitude can pull a person out of a slump.” ~ Max Lucado

Being kind, praying for others, and thanking God for people is one way to change our own moods for the better.

Recently, Max Lucado (pastor, speaker, and best-selling author) felt down because of being diagnosed with a heart condition. So he came up with a plan. As Max took a walk, he determined to thank God for everything and every person he saw.

This worked. Max said, “Not only does being friendly and kind make the recipient feel good, but it’s also a health booster for the one bestowing the kindness.”

Being outside is also a mood booster all by itself. So take a walk outdoors, especially if you are feeling blue. And, like Max, determine to thank God for everything and everyone you see.

I usually walk indoors, around the church sanctuary or in the hall at home. It is safer, free from pollutants, I can do this at night, and the flooring is smooth. But I am going to take at least two walks a week outside. Maybe I’ll see some folks that I can greet and smile at.

Won’t you join me?

Your Turn …
