Spiritual Metaphors 4 Life ~ Well-Oiled Machine
Life is like a well-oiled machine. An attitude of gratitude is the oil that keeps things running smoothly. If we fill our lives with the dirt and grime of complaints, blaming others, making excuses, cursing our fate or other negative things, we muck up the ability for parts to move and they eventually come to a grinding halt and have to be overhauled. Gratitude keeps us moving, flowing freely and moving where we want to go.
