G is for Gratitude #atozchallenge

One of the things that I see come up in readings ALL THE TIME is that people either live in the past or the future. One of those two. They either regret mistakes or missteps that were made or were completely anxious about the future.  I’ve done this A to Z Challenge for three years, and I always choose Gratitude for G.
