We see many things in life which we take for granted. It can never be a big house or a big car. Big blessings always come in a little thing, like witnessing a beautiful weather, cooking a good meal for your family or seeing a clean house after a huge mess.
Always try to be grateful on things around you. Things we don’t have at the moment have a reason for not been exist. As we say is a GOD’s will.
If I do plant with my 4yr old child I feel it’s a blessing because we are spending time together from planting the seed to watch them grow. Little things do matter and I strongly believe on it. Happiness depends on your attitude not on what you have.
Seeing the sunrise is another thing to be grateful for because you are having another day to be productive, do something for yourself, help someone, if not much forgive somebody.
It’s very simple and convenient to not to be grateful for anything. We disappoint and distress very quickly and give statements like why we should be grateful for, we are not blessed for this or that but we forget the moment we are living has so many things around to be thankful for. But if you keep a beautiful heart you can feel little things keep big blessings.
Gratefulness is a key of happiness and happiness comes from inside which makes you a happy person. Also, it can boost up your energy level, make your health good and most importantly you can sleep better. Appreciate the things and people around you.
As Anne Frank said “Dead people receive more flowers than the living ones because regret is stronger than Gratitude “.
My habit to be thankful in life was not always there until I reached at that point where I met with some people who stay grateful no matter what they have. I always feel I am not that special person whom GOD has blessed with so many things, if he blessed me there is a reason for that too. Like you have heard always there is a reason for everything, importantly its on us to find out what we have, where we need to be thankful and what is the purpose behind our lives. I have read it somewhere if you focus on the hurt you will continue to suffer, but if you focus on the lesson you will continue to grow.
Someday, everything will make perfect sense. So, for now laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, be strong and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason. Be patient everything is coming together. Whatever you are waiting for is on its way to you. When we go to the bed in the night we sleep so comfortably in our warm beds. Few days ago, I hurt my one finger and I put bandage on it so I cannot use that finger for a day. I realized how blessed I am to have my each and every body parts because I was having a hard time for using my hand, cannot feed my child, cannot even crack the egg and pour into the pan. Thankful always for what we have.
I believe if you stay grateful you will have peace on every step of your life. Always look around yourself some people keep really less but they still stay happy because they are satisfied on things they have and grateful for everything. Satisfaction is another thing you can have for being grateful. Be happy on the things you have while working on a thing you want. Being despair thinking over somebody is more blessed is extremely bad thing to do. We all are blessed in different ways.
Be thankful for everybody in your life good or bad, past and present they all made you the person you are today. Happiness is what happens now when you appreciate what you have. Happiness is not about getting what you want all the time, its about loving what you have and being grateful for it.
