When we appreciate what we have, we start attracting things to be appreciative of. How often have you had a bad day, and then a bad week and then it gets worse and worse? Did you ever just stop and just be grateful for one thing? Sometimes being grateful won’t guarantee material things in your life will change, but it will change your outlook on life. Practice this every morning or evening or even in the middle of the day, stop, smile and say thank you for one thing in your life for that day.
The next day do the same and every week start being grateful for more events in your life, eventually you’ll have so much to be grateful for you won’t feel the need to complain.
I’m not saying we cannot be unhappy, we all have rough patches and bad episodes but let me tell you that time is going to go on anyway, those moments will pass and all you can do is change the way you spend it. If you’re out of work, every day be grateful that you are not stuck in an office doing something you don’t enjoy and even though things are tough now, you have the choice to create something great. You have the opportunity to find a job you love. If you’ve ended a relationship, look at what you learnt from it. What can you be grateful for? Sometimes life can be hard and you just don’t see the light, but remember the stars shine even when there is a storm. They still shine, every single evening and that’s what we need to do. We need to commit to changing our attitude even if we cannot always change out circumstance.
Gratitude should never be forced, if you have to force it then you’re not really being grateful. You need to to really look at something you have and be thankful for it. Genuinely thankful, that’s how we learn to appreciate our blessings, when you start being thankful for the small blessings you have, you begin to appreciate the bigger one when you start noticing them.
“Happy vibes follow happy tribes”
I hope July is an enlightening month for everyone
