As I shift into being, I have realized that gratitude is an important anchor for me in the daily practice of being present, mindful and in the moment. To just be.
In my recent posts, I have shared about how challenging my word selection is for this year and yet it is vital for me to pivot and embrace that space of being. Gratitude and a gratitude journal help.
I am sharing this reflection on gratitude and being grateful for all things in hopes that it helps us all see the importance of gratitude for all things.
Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.
It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.
GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.
