On grace and resentment

Generally, there are two ways to look at events and incidents. You can be gracious and grateful it happened or you can be bitter and angry.

Sometimes it’s black and white; it’s easier to be one than the other. It’s easy to be grateful with a promotion. It’s easy to be angry after being mugged. But other times, it’s unclear. A type of grey zone. The emotions creep in, slowly, unnoticed and I think that’s when they’re at their most dangerous.

You owe it to yourself to be on the lookout for the reactions that quietly drip in. Especially the negative. Walking around with the burden of resentment limits your creativity, your generosity and what you offer to the world.

Take the time to work on grace and being grateful, it will deliver and make all the difference.
