As a human being our only job is to be happy, happy for whatever the reason.
Life is supposed to be fun and exciting if it’s not then you are missing the point.
Challenges are meant to help us learn, and until we learn those lessons we will continue to experience similar challenges before new and better ones arrive.
The best way to be happy, to enjoy the Life is to be grateful for the things you already have.
Even when you see yourself in difficult situations, there is always something to be thankful and grateful for:
Being grateful is the surest way to keep what you have and attract more of the good things you’ve ever wished for.
The most important part of being grateful is to feel it from inside; it’s an inside-out work. When you really feel thankful for something from your heart you raise your vibrations. Higher the vibration better you feel.
Let’s talk about 10 things to feel grateful for
It really could be anything, it does not have to be complicated. Simply look at what you have where you are at this specific point in time and realize there is always something you should feel thankful for.
Here are a few things just to give you an idea. You may replace some of these according to your own experience:
1. Your mother
It’s her who brought you into this world.
It is her who had to go through all the unbearable pain for those 9 months.
If your mother was good to you, there is no price for the love and nurturing she provided you since you were a child.
Your mother gave and sacrificed more than you may ever know.
If your mother was not very good to you, you still wouldn’t be here without her. Now it’s your chance to take responsibility for yourself and to create yourself.
So it is your mother, one of the persons you should be grateful for the most.
Your good health is responsible for the fact that you are alive in the present, enjoying life.
You are able to do many things that a person with poor health wouldn’t be able to otherwise.
Good health also gives you the opportunity to grow stronger in mind and body.
It allows you to develop physical strength that is necessary for learning in this life experience.
You should be grateful for your health, you are alive today and you should not take today for granted.
Again health is one of the most important things to be grateful for.
Man can live without food for days but it’s impossible to live without water for that long.
Our overall functioning of the body depends on the water we drink.
Our bodies are mostly water, it flows throughout our body.
We are able to enjoy the water when we swim in it.
It cools us down on hot summer days.
Water can make our food grow, it allows you to experience the taste of that delicious strawberry you have tasted.
It is the liquid that provides all the fish their home and life.
Because of water Life on Earth came into existence, because of water we exist.
Perhaps if money didn’t exist life would be a better place. But until then, the harsh reality is that most people in the world need it.
You always have money, you count all the money you spent in the past.
You can be grateful for all the money that you have received until now.
As you feel grateful for the money you spend, you’ll attract more of it.
Because essentially, you are creating a flow of energy where you keep continuously making room for expansion.
The same goes for money. So whatever amount you now have. Be thankful for it.
So grateful to Earth For giving us a place to live.
For giving us an abundant supply of oxygen.
For giving us food and water.
For hosting our stay, allowing us to live on her despite all we do to her.
Our atmosphere is created so that we can live and breathe on Earth.
It is just perfect for the human race and it’s all because of the Earth.
Earth is our home, and every single human being in the world should remember this.
You should be grateful for the all the relationships you have with friends, lover, parents, children.
Even the sour relationships allow us to know the true meaning of the ones we appreciate.
Gives us company when we feel lonely.
Allow us to experience being able to co-create with others in many different ways.
We can learn way more by having many people to learn from rather than just on our own.
It is the relationships with others that gives us joy, happiness, and love.
Whatever relationships you have, be grateful for them.
7. Your home
You are living in a home, you are having one.
You have a roof over your head, a shelter that others may not have.
Look at the people who don’t have one, how they get wet in the rain, cold in the winter and hot in the summer.
Your home protects you from the sun’s scorching heat, rain, and even storms.
A comfortable place to come back to after you have finished exploring out there in the world.
You should be grateful for your present home.
Your phone is the thing which you keep with you nearly every time.
With the phone, you are in touch with your family, with your work.
Now you can do nearly everything using your phone.
So your phone can be the thing you should be very grateful for.
With the internet, you can find anything you wished for.
You can have any information within a short duration time.
It is a massive library for learning, and for the most part without additional costs other than the service.
You can connect to and meet people from all over the world via social networks.
You can connect to old childhood friends that otherwise you would forget about not keeping in touch.
You can even make a living if you develop your own abilities and wish to utilize this wonderful resource in a productive way.
You should be grateful for being able to use the internet with such an ease.
What we are is the results what we have been taught, no matter if it was our teacher or mother or friends or any stranger.
Life is a process of continuous learning.
So we should be grateful for all the teachers throughout our life for making us whatever we are now is because of them.
So these are some things you can feel grateful for in your life at the present time.
Gratitude has the power to turn a bad situation into a very good one.
So if you want good changes in your life start making a list of things to be grateful for.
It works, it always has because this is the “signal” you are putting out, and what you put out, you get back.
What are YOU thankful and grateful for in this special day?
