GRATITUDE 101

Hey there!I am sorry for missing in action, I've been studying for my exams and i'm finally done. God is good. As I was studying, you know how you take those five to ten minutes breaks in between studying? Well, while i was on one of those,it struck me that i ought to be grateful for the ability to spend nights reading..no one likes studying but did you know that it's a privilege to be busy? Now you know.

We tend to overlook the many and awesome blessings that are already in our lives and concentrate on complaining instead or  comparison. I talked about it here , check it out if you missed the discussion. Just like faith, hope or trust, gratitude requires practice! It is like a muscle that you consistently work out so that you can reap that toned body thus, you have to make it a habit to see the good in every situation and be grateful.

Gratitude is a passage for many good things to come into your life. It's ironic that a person can be leading a decent life, going out reasonable times, having food on the table each time they feel hungry and a place to sleep yet they are always grumpy. Is that not being selfish putting in mind that some people have less yet, genuinely happy? We ought to be grateful for the things we already have and the ones on the way.

I dislike people who when they receive a gift, scrutinize it (not in the giver's presence though) and might google how much the gift is worth! How rude. It is these kind of people who make the art of gift giving complicated and in turn have destroyed the spirit of random sharing of gifts and exercising gratitude. If you fall in this awful category, try to be thankful for once..it's absolutely free and it's the thought that matters anyway!

While on gratitude, i have a lot that i am grateful for and each morning i say a prayer of thanksgiving. What are you grateful for? If, for any reason you do  not have anything..be grateful for the breath of life and the fact that you have a phone, iPad, laptop or whatever device to be scrolling down my blog. On that note, I am truly grateful for you stopping by.
Happy new month! Someone told me it's called Yesvember! 

Until next time
Cheers..

Grace

  5. Thanks for your words of wisdom. It's so important to take a step back and count all the things we're grateful for when we're feeling negative.

  6. True! When you start being thankful for what you have, you even forget what you don't have and you are a happier person.
