Well I’m pretty darned impressed with myself! My printer was printing everything out with lines on it and the copies were not good. Of course, my first reaction was: “I can’t believe I have to buy another printer! This one is just a little over a year old! How come they can’t make things like they used to?” I settled down and yes, googled, Why is my printer printing lines? And like magic….Walla! The answer. You have to go to your printer’s home, then setup, then press maintenance and then have the printer do all its little maintenance jobs: nozzle check, head cleaning, print head alignment. Crisis (and another cost) averted!
Now I am practicing gratitude for having the wherewithal to use Google, to complete the steps necessary to improve my copies and for not having to buy another printer. I truly love the practice of Gratitude. My friend, Dr. Peggy DeLong “The Gratitude Psychologist” taught me this practice when Peggy hosted a Gratitude Workshop at Scooch A Mi. It has made such an impact on my life. Whenever you get really down – and we all have those times – stop, take a moment, breathe, look around and see what you can be grateful for. There will be something. Even if it’s the fact that you took that moment for yourself.
Peggy loves the quote, “It’s not happiness that brings us gratitude. It’s gratitude that brings us happiness. Bring positive energy to yourself by practicing gratitude. It is a game changer.
To keep in the spirit of gratitude and adding some love, this month Scooch is featuring Peggy’s Midnight Creations. (Yes, by Dr. Peggy DeLong.) Check out the Love and Gratitude Bracelets below.
