Being grateful is probably on of the greatest things you can do to change your life right now! And I’m not talking about being grateful for simple things that happen in your life, such as getting a promotion or passing a difficult test. Although those are some things to be grateful for, I am talking on a much deeper level. Be grateful for everything in your life. The bed you sleep up in, the roof over your head, your job, the education you have or are getting, the car you drive, your health, the people who love you, the shoes on your feet, the clothes on your back and much, much more. You should be grateful for every aspect of your life, even if you have absolutely nothing. Be grateful that you are alive, that you live this very moment. Life is a very precious thing, you only have one life so live it to the fullest. Being grateful for everything in your life makes you a much better person, not just morally but physically, mentally and spiritually. Once you begin your transformation from just accepting and wanting new things, you’ll start to feel happier and more grateful for the things in your life. You’ll begin to see a new you emerge through this simple step. Its to often that so many people don’t stop and think about how much they really have in life, specifically here in America. Everyone just WANTS WANTS WANTS and when they don’t get what they want, its all “boo wooo.” Did you ever stop to think of what you already have and the fact that someone, somewhere else in this world doesn’t have nearly as many things as you have, if not any. Be grateful for the life you live, cause out there, someone would do ANYTHING to have the things you have or to live the life you live. Think about that the next time you don’t get something you want and sob and moan, or think that your life is shit because you didn’t get something…just remember what you have.
You should try this! Write down a list of things you are grateful for. It could be anything; your job, your health etc., and write it all down on a piece of paper. Now every morning that you wake up, before you do anything else! Take 5 minutes of your time and think about every thing you are grateful for and repeat them over in your head. Its important to feel and be happy while doing this, and I promise that after the few weeks of doing this, you will see a change in your feelings and emotions. You wont have to think about being grateful, it will just happen. Let me know how it goes!
