Many people, maybe even the majority of us, believe their lives are boring or meaningless. Isn’t that awful? Oftentimes we see little to be thankful for because we’re always thinking about the things we wish they had. We may live in a comfortable home in a nice neighborhood and we may have plenty of food on the table, but we just don’t see the joys in the everyday.
We often take the little things for granted. Are you one of these people? If so, it’s okay! There’s plenty of hope and there are plenty of things for you to be thankful for.
There are so many joys in your life right now that you’re likely overlooking. For example, by reading this article you have obviously awoken for another day. Isn’t the fact that you are still alive something to be thankful for? After all, a cancer survivor, sure won’t take life for granted anymore!
Here’s something to think about:
Did the sun rise today? If so, be thankful for the gift of light and warmth.
Did you have work to do today? If so, be thankful for the opportunity to earn a living for you and your family.
Did you eat a nourishing meal today? If so, be thankful for the gift of food.
Even the smallest things in your life are reasons to celebrate! As we all know, “things could be worse” which is all the more reason to have an attitude of gratitude!
Lots of Gratitude = Positive Attitude
It’s a fact: those who are grateful are more uplifting and positive. By having a positive attitude, you’ll not only feel better, but you’ll also enjoy a vibrant physical health because our body, mind, and spirit are so heavily inter-connected. Now, that’s something to be thankful for, isn’t it?
Now ask yourself: What do I have to be thankful for today? Spend a few moments showing your appreciation to your loved ones, colleagues, or any random strangers you meet.
