There’s no greater magnet of positive energy and ultimately success than a grateful heart. Do not allow your heart to dwell on your failures or unfavorable circumstances, instead remind yourself always of how far you’ve come. We experience so many miracles every day that it’s literally impossible to run out of things to be grateful for.
My gratitude mission this year is to write in my journal 3 things that I’m thankful for each day. For today, I am thankful for:
- Waking up well and staying healthy
- My mum just recovered from an illness (that could have gotten much worse) and is more positive & energetic than ever!
- Truly working on and keeping to my goals for the year.
These are incredibly important things to me personally, and I cannot overstate how thankful I am for them.
In the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives we not only fail to appreciate these little things that matter the most, but also the kind deeds of others to us. We’re all guilty of focusing on our own problems, and overlooking the kindness/difficulties of others. Yet we cannot imagine how far our gesture of appreciation could go in someone’s life or even in our lives when we express our thanks to the Almighty.
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” . . . William Arthur Ward
So be thankful for what you have now, and how far you’ve come and you’ll pave the way for more blessings and positivity in your life. It’s truly not easy to have come this far, nor is our circumstances entirely within our control, so what are you grateful for right now?
