Motivational Monday - There's Always Something for which to be Thankful
In life, there is always something for which to be thankful. It’s so easy to complain about how chaotic the world is, our lives are and how we have been mistreated or disrespected, but complaining without action doesn’t change a thing.
Begin each day being thankful for everything we have, not what we do not have. Begin with the simple things in life such as being able to walk, eat, see, hear – the simple gifts in life that we often take advantage of. Sometimes it’s just a matter of how we view things that needs ‘adjusting.’
Choose to look at the brighter side of life; you will discover the countless small things that we often take for granted. Those small things are so precious - we just need to take a closer look and hone in on those little things.
Perhaps, the reason we often find it difficult to be thankful is because we tend to believe that a blessing is something we expect to be given to us. Sometimes not getting what we want, we can’t acknowledge what we already have.
Know that even the struggles, the emptiness, the failures and the pain that we’re going through, can truly be a blessing in disguise. These struggles teach us what really matters most in life and encourages us to be the best version of ourselves. We simply have to take the time to reflect; when we reflect upon the challenges, we often see the bigger picture.
