Be Thankful

Be thankful for what you have, rather than focusing on what you don’t. There is always someone out there wishing they had what you take for granted. Be blessed.

An Attitude of Gratitude

underground-885206_1920

If we as humans would develop an attitude of being grateful, for all the good things in our life, we would be a much happier society. It is easier for us to complain all the time when something goes wrong. Why not be grateful for all the good that we are experiencing each day?

We should start our day expressing thankfulness for the air we breathe, being able to live one more day, for our families and the jobs we have. Many of us have a home to live in and food on our tables. Maybe we do not have the biggest house or the fanciest car but does that really matter in the scheme of things? – being contented at the place we are in our lives is directly related to the gratitude we feel. I am not saying that it is bad to want nice things but the problem occurs when things have us.

Gratitude not only gives us a feeling of peace but it does wonders to our physical bodies. We feel energised and free from stress by not allowing minute situations to disturb us. We are able to spend our moments enjoying life rather than focusing on the negatives.

I dare you today to develop that attitude of being grateful and experience that peace of mind and joy that comes from being thankful. Be blessed.

 

New Beginnings

Sometimes in life we allow situations and circumstances in our past to determine our future. We tell our selves that just because we were unsuccessful in a certain area we are therefore not good enough. Maybe we grew up in poverty, had a bad childhood or came out of a bad relationship- this does not mean we are failures.  You see “the things that are seen are subject to change.”

Don’t allow your setbacks to keep you in a victim mentality. Say to yourself:  ” I am a victor not a victim”.  In life we all will face challenging issues; it’s how you view these challenges that will determine your outcome. When a door closes you should have the mind set that situation was not meant for you. There is something better in store for you and another door with new opportunities will come your way.

See life as a learning experience where we are growing and evolving as we face good and bad times. Do not give up on your dreams- life is like a race that we are running , we do not know how far we are truly from the finish line but if we keep pushing  forward without giving up we will reap the reward.

Also remember doubt and worry cannot change your situation. It only adds stress and anxiety to your life. So my friends, remember that every day is a new day, a new day for new beginnings and new victories. Be blessed.
