Gratitude

A thankful heart is a magnet of miracles.

With Thanksgiving having just passed, it left me pondering about how many things we receive in our daily life that we don’t stop and thank God for? It is only in times of needs that we bow down but when life is going great, we forget to take the moment and look up in happiness

John F.Kennedy has rightly said’As we express our gratitude, we must never forget the highest form of appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them’

We go through life, expecting so many things, things that could change our life for the better, and by chance when we get them due to the fruitful hours that we put in, we get so lost in this whirlwind. Some people loose their foothold, and stumble down, hard.

Having gratitude keeps us grounded. It reminds us of all the things we have , and once didn’t. It turns what we have into enough. It reminds us how much we have to still achieve and how much hard work is still left for it.

It is itself a wish that allows us to appreciate and recognize the big things, and all the little things it comprises of.

For one minute walk outside. Stand there in silence. Look up at the sky and contemplate how amazing life is. Look at the gift lying right in front of you. Unwrap it with great care. People tend to forget to send the thank you card after one receives it. Don’t be that person. Adapt this attitude. It might just change your life.

So..what are you grateful for today?
