Do you have a roof over your head now? Did you eat a hearty lunch and or drink a glass of water straight from the filter? Do you know three people who love you? Or did you have a blanket over you last night when you slept? Well, you are richer than more than half the population out there.
We often crib about what we don’t have and so often fail to notice so much of all that we do have right at this moment. The greed of wanting more and more makes us blind and we so often miss the great things that have already come to us.
If you sit down and make a list of the things you have and the things you want, maybe the list of wants will be longer but you will also see the long list of haves that you already have. When you count all that you have been given you will see how much you have to be grateful for. When you count your blessings you will see how much you have to be grateful for.
Maybe at this point some of your relationships aren’t at their best, maybe you want something you think you cannot afford, maybe your health isn’t really well but it’s not the end right? When you count your blessings and be truly grateful for all that you have been given you will see all that you want just flow in like Magic. You will have to do absolutely nothing to get those things. They will find their way to you and they will align themselves according to your situations.
When I came across the concept of gratitude it was slightly difficult to keep my mind away from my wants and focus on my haves. But when I did and when I made it a part of my routine I could see the Universe rewarding me at every step. Make it a habit to count all your blessings right after you wake up and right before you sleep. Put yourself to sleep in this state of gratitude and let gratitude do its work. The next morning when you wake you will notice how much your life changed over night. Maintain a journal and write down, “I am thankful for…..” and list down as many things as you can. Everyday you will see your list get longer. This list may have the people you are blessed to have, good health, a roof over your head, food and money or even the environment that surrounds you.
Gratitude can alone transform your life. Practice gratitude right from today and right from this moment… make it a habit and see your life unfold right in front of you. Believe me… the more grateful you are the more blessed you will be.
Be grateful and have a nice day :).
