Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.
― A.A. Milne
Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow- Melody Beattie
The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness. —Dalai Lama
Why you need to be full of gratitude
Being grateful for all your blessings makes you a happier person. Practice saying Thanks every hour and see how different your world becomes. You learn to be more positive when you start appreciating all the tiny things in your life. Start with the smaller things and eventually you will end up saying Thanks for having your biggest dreams come true. Being grateful helps you to never take anyone for granted. You learn to appreciate and be kind to all the people in your life. Just imagine how happy and blessed the world would be if gratitude becomes a way of life.
Do you need a few pointers on how to start ?
- Be thankful that you have a home.
- Be thankful that you have food to eat.
- Be thankful that your family is safe.
- Be thankful for whatever source of income you have.
- Be thankful for the abundance in nature.
- Be thankful for your healthy body.
- Be thankful for the ability to see, hear, feel and speak.
- Be thankful for all your life experiences as those shaped you to become the person you are today.
And what happens when you become grateful ?
While it may seem like an act in the beginning, if you keep at saying Thanks frequently, you slowly realise how fortunate you really are. You get to know that you are living the life someone else is desperately praying for. You give up complaining on what you don’t have and focus on what you have. This attitude always helps you get more to be grateful for. Sit quietly for a while,dear friends. Listen to your own inner voice and understand how blessed you are simply to be alive.
