So often in life, we find ourselves complaining about the things that are wrong in our lives, the things we wish we had, and yet we rarely take the time to give thanks for all that we do have. It really seems a shame when you sit to consider it. There are so many things, seemingly small things that we should be grateful for on a daily basis, but yet manage to overlook. What makes it so much more tragic, in a sense, is that if we took the time everyday to focus on those little everyday things that are wonderful, then we probably wouldn’t have anything to complain about.
See, it’s quite simple really, when you not only focus your thoughts and energy on the positive things in your life, but also give thanks for those things, you end up attracting more things to be grateful for in your life. The act of giving thanks really is more powerful than you can imagine. At the the most basic level think about it in terms of your everyday life. For my fellow bloggers, for instance think about what you feel like when a follower comments on your blog and thanks you for the work you put into your writing. I know that for me that thank you fills me with a wonderful feeling that then makes me want to provide my followers with further content that they can enjoy and benefit from. It’s no different with the universe! Your giving thanks send out positive and good vibrations into the universe which it floods back at you.
So the next time that you are having a bad day or you feel like your at you wits end, take a moment, breath, give thanks for the little things, and give it some time and soon you won’t be able to help but smile.
