Gratitude is a simple concept.
It’s that feeling that what you have is good. And that what you have is enough for you to be happy today.
Why be grateful?
Gratitude brings a level of contentment and satisfaction to each day. And sometimes it takes practice.
Start with a sprinkle.
Instead of looking at what’s going wrong, think of what’s going right.
When you’re tempted to focus on what you don’t have, shift your focus to what you do have.
Rather than getting discouraged about what you haven’t accomplished, look at how far you’ve come.
Instead of saying, “I wish I had…”, say “I’m grateful that I have…”
Gratitude opens your heart
Expressing gratitude opens your heart to the goodness life offers, and an open heart makes way for more blessings.
Do you have what you need?
What are the bare necessities of life? Not much. Air, food, shelter.
And yet what do you have beyond that?
Consider the people and things you use, interact with, work for, and would miss like crazy if they weren’t there.
Don’t take anything for granted. Life is precious.
Sprinkle every day with gratitude. Or go ahead and pour it on. You can’t overdo it.
