Having gratitude for what you have and what and who you are is a great tool.
Gratitude…a word that can have a lot of strength.
When I think about the word Gratitude, it has a strong meaning of not just material things. Even if you feel you have nothing to be grateful for, think again.
· The very fact that you woke up, give gratitude.
· The fact that you were able to get out of bed, give gratitude.
· If your able to walk on your own two legs, give gratitude.
· If your able to see, touch, smell, taste and hear, give gratitude.
So, as you can see, having gratitude extends way beyond what you may possess or do for a living even. Have you ever looked at another person that is way less fortunate than you and think, “Wow, I’m not like that.”? Have gratitude that you’re not.
So, when you feel that you’re having a really bad day, take a piece of paper and a pen or pencil and write down at least 3 things that your grateful for. Then really think about what you have written. Even if all you feel at that time is getting out of bed, brushing your teeth and walking to the kitchen to make breakfast is all your grateful for, then have gratitude that your able to do it.
Life is a precious thing. The more you value life, the stronger the Gratitude you will have for it. ALL life is valuable; from the smallest of insects to the strongest human.
So don't ever forget the strength of the word Gratitude. Everyday journal and, at the end, write down 3 things you are grateful for...from the smallest to the largest.
Guess what? Make breathing one of them. No breath and you have no life. Remember that.
