Gratitude

“Dear old world’, she murmured, ‘you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.” L.M.Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Gratitude is a healing, positive emotion. As Charles Dickens said “Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”

We all have many things to be grateful for, and most we take for granted.

Many people are waking up today unable to see this beautiful morning, and it is not weather dependent.

 

Even when going through difficult times in life there are many things to be grateful for and below are just some –

 

 

 

 

Your sight

Your sense of hearing

Your sense of taste and smell

Your warm bed that you left this morning

The roof over your head

Your first meal of the day

Your family and friends

Your employment

The nature outside your doorstep

Your legs to move you about

The sun

The rain

The air you breath

Your heart

Life’s challenges, that allow personal growth

 

It is too easy to take things for granted, when blessings abound.

Notice simple pleasures, be thankful and acknowledge all that you receive with grace.

 

“I didn’t expect to recover from my second operation but since I did, I consider that I’m living on borrowed time. Every day that dawns is a gift to me and I take it in that way. I accept it gratefully without looking beyond it. I completely forget my physical suffering and all the unpleasantness of my present condition and I think only of the joy of seeing the sun rise once more and of being able to work a little bit, even under difficult conditions.” – Henri Matisse
