Gratitude

Very often, we instinctively focus on the negative that life has to offer. We focus on the burdens rather blessings, allowing the mind to contemplate on mere negativity. For example, being unemployed, the loss of a loved one, a heart-break or fact that the plans for life have been delayed. Ever thought that this might just be the time to be grateful even when everything is out of control and haphazard.

I have had my fair share of life’s lessons, and I have come to realize that when I focus on the negative things, it just creates a ditch that l spiral down so quickly; filled with negativity. Would you believe if I tell you that you can control that by using your most powerful tool? Which is…? Continue reading! We tend to attract what we put out if we show hate, hate comes our way, if we put out sadness, sadness comes our way, if we put out rejection that is the return we attract. We will always attract exactly what we give.

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves. Buddha

Your mind is a powerful tool, what you think is exactly what you will become, therefore, it is only wise to think of things that would impact your life in a positive direction. It is important to remember that what we think is what we attract, hence we need to guard our every thought and ensure that they are pure and uplifting.

We now must consciously put ourselves in a more positive zone, have a positive mindset and attract positive things into our life. A one seemingly simple but powerful way to start the day with a positive mindset is to be grateful.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie.

Gratitude gives us a sense of where we came from, it helps us to understand and access the progress that we have made and gives us a clear vision of the future without lamenting on the past. Think about it, if you were to take the time to say thank you for life today considering that you had a near-death experience yesterday, there is no way if you are truly grateful to be alive today, there would be no room for lamentation on what could have happened. There are many people who are not given that opportunity to see another day. Life is so fragile, one moment we are breathing and literally another moment we are no longer among the living. Therefore, each day we start by expressing heartfelt gratitude for what we have and pray for the things we desire. 

This is such a real song, speaks to what is happening in our world today. Enjoy!
