I think, more often than not, instead of appreciating what we have around us, we keep focusing on what we do not have. We are filled with grudges and resentments and have strong opinions about what we deserve. You see, some days are just great; things go exactly how you had planned or maybe even better and you jump from meetings to other tasks to your personal life feeling amazing. And then, there are those days; days when you feel no motivation at all. When everything seems to be going in an unexpected way & you get that sinking feeling in your stomach. And all you want to do is go back to your bed and sleep. You know the feeling.
But, think about it for a moment. How often do you pause to really appreciate what you have in life? Not what you've lost or what COULD have been but what you HAVE in your life at present? Sometimes, it's very easy to feel bad because you're going through a tough phase in your life. However, remember, no matter how bad your situation might seem at the moment, there are many things to be grateful for in life. Every-day, I get a lot of messages from people whom I have never met but who really felt motivated enough to send me the positive notes that they do. Their expressions of gratitude have, at times, helped me immensely when things got tough in my life. So, today, I want to thank each and every one of you for making a difference in my life, in whatever little way. THANK YOU. 😊
What do you feel grateful for? 😊
