- What are you grateful for today?
That, says my wise friend, is the question everyone should ask themselves every morning - and maybe every evening also. And make a habit of asking it, because it sets your mind at ease, and you focus on the positive things in your life. No matter how dark and gloomy it may seem, there is always something to be grateful for.
- And if you don't believe me: Take a moment. Walk outside. Stand there in silence. Stare up towards the sky and think of things you are grateful for. I am sure you can find something.
And as I stand there with my eyes closed, and think of the things in my life that I am grateful for, I feel a huge smile spreading on my face. What happy thoughts. Because in a way it makes me think that what I have is Enough, because I have that, and that does make me content, peaceful and happy.
Not focusing on what I don't have, because then maybe it will never be Enough. Not thinking of the bad memories from yesterday, nor the worries of tomorrow, but simply what I am grateful for. Right here. Right now.
Grateful for that dark night that turned into yet another bright morning and for that happy dream that turned into reality. Grateful for noticing that little yellow flower growing against all odds, and for the sight of that lovely bird flying high up on the sky. Grateful for the people that I love.
Grateful for the gift of another day.
What are you grateful for today? Please share.
