"I try to be grateful for the abundance of the blessings that I have, for the journey that I’m on and to relish each day as a gift."
I had another post planned for today but then I read this quote and had to use it based on what's going on in my life right now.
When you read this, it's simple. Applying it every minute of every day requires remembering it and merely looking around you and saying "I am grateful for......". In our lives it really is pretty easy to fill in the blanks.
Even if you're hurting or feeling down, there is something to be grateful for, something you have in abundance. It all depends on your definition of abundance I suppose. But most of us experience so much abundance that we then take it for granted. Look around you. Do you have a roof over your head (even if it leaks)? Do you have a refrigerator and is there food/drink in it? Do you have a closet? What's in it? Do you have heat and/or A/C?
These are things that we take for granted every single day. But when we're feeling down or not as good as we'd like, then we need to look around and just spotting some of these indicators of abundance and expressing our gratitude to the Universe for them. That will make you feel better if you keep doing it enough. It worked for me.
Try it this week and see what happens.
