Be Thankful For What You Have
I’m sure you have heard people say, be thankful for what you have. If we really think about it , we all have lots to be thankful for. The house we live in, our families, the car we drive, our health and the list goes on.
When we make a list of the things we are personally grateful for and we really feel the emotions that go along with each of them, our mood changes and so does our vibration because we are telling the universe that we appreciate these things and we are thankful to have them in our life. So the universe will send us more things to appreciate and be thankful for.
When we are thankful for something, it opens our heart and we can’t help but feel happy.
Being thankful or grateful for something can do wonders for stress. When we are truly thankful , we see things differently and if we look for things to be grateful for everyday then our stress levels will actually go down.
One of the greatest benefits of being thankful is that you will start to realize how important somethings really are that you may of previously taken for granted.
I know things like our water, electricity, and a warm place to live can begin to have new meaning when we start to be thankful that we have them. It is not until our electricity goes out in a storm that we all of a sudden realize how grateful we are to have electricity so we can see in the dark, run our pump from the well for water and have our heat on.
If we just stop and think , we can find so many things to be grateful for. We even take our health for granted. We don’t give it much thought until something goes wrong and we become sick.
We live in a world where so many things are taken for granted. If we would all become more grateful . Our lives would be different. People would develop a lot more empathy for one another and situations would be looked at differently.
We all might help that person who is broke down beside the road, rather then just drive by, because we would know that if we were in their shoes we would be thankful that someone stopped to help us.
So be thankful for what you have and remember, the more you’re grateful for , the more you will have to be grateful for.
