Hit the Thanks Key

"Receive life with thanks, and ask for nothing to change."
Ann VosKamp

Can I do this?
Can I receive life with thanksgiving, asking for nothing to change?

"My soul doth magnify the Lord." Mary declared in Luke 1 in the midst of a huge life transition.
Magnify the Lord in thanksgiving daily.

To my soul, this seems as impossible as removing sugar from my diet, which I have been pondering of late.

Sugar permeates nearly everything - our food, our culture, my cravings.
Asking permeates everything - my thinking, my speaking, my autopilot.

I don't know if it's possible.
I glance above the verses I had been reading in Luke.

"Nothing is impossible with God."

Is this my one thing to do? 
Is this my key?
