As a reader of this blog you may recall that I was reminded of the importance of have & using an active gratitude practice on a daily basis. For the rest of November Colorado Springs Real Estate Facts & Fun will be dedicated to what I am grateful for about living in Colorado Springs.
Gratitude is a simple yet often overlooked tool to use in directing your life. When I searched Google about Gratitude a great story title popped up "Be Happy Without Being Perfect". What this reminded me of is the importance of what I choose to focus on. There is always something more, better, different out there but for today what I am am really excited about is remembering all the things I am grateful for.
Today I am grateful for the Military Installations here in Colorado Springs. Without the likes of Ft. Carson, The United States Air Force Academy, Peterson Field, North American Defense Command and Shriever Air Force Base we would not have the diverse population of people from all over the United States as well as the world who call Colorado Springs home and often decide to either come back here after Military Service or retire here. They bring different viewpoints, perspectives, cultures, recipes that foodies tend to love and a love for all kinds of different things. It goes without saying that they also play a huge role for our country as a whole and the gratitude to them and for them knows no bounds but for the installations themselves being here we are incredibly fortunate and grateful to have them.
