We often find ourselves complaining and worrying about things that we wanted or didn’t want to happen in our lives.  We get depressed because nothing we do seems to turn out right.  Time and time again we fall short of what we are striving for.  When this starts to happen and nothing else is working, try being grateful.

You may be asking yourself how or why should I be grateful for my job, life, or financial situation. But when you are grateful, you are truly opening yourself up to get all sorts of blessings and great things your life. If you need healing, begin by focusing on health and being grateful for health. If you want a new car, begin by focusing on the car you want and appreciate the thrashed clunker in your driveway. If it is more cash that you need, begin to think of prosperity and being grateful for whatever money you as of now have. This way of thinking is the same with relationships,  fruitful professions and, the way of living healthier and more content lives.

Saying Thank You

Take a couple of minutes to answer these questions… when was the last time you stopped to ponder the many blessings you have? When is the last time you sincerely said “Thank You”? When was the last time you felt thankful for someone or something you have in your life? When was the last time you told your friends or family that you cherish the moments you spend together with them? Something as straightforward as a “Thank you for being in my life” or “I appreciate having you”, can go far. It will make the other person feel great, beyond any doubt, and it will make you feel good as well

One exercise that couples should experience is to record all of the reasons they are grateful for one another. This is a very powerful way strengthen the relationship as it makes them consciously grateful for all the good qualities that the other person brings into their lives; things that in some cases are underestimated.

I would like to challenge you to make a conscientious commitment to, get up every morning and think of at least 5 things that you are grateful for and say them aloud to yourself. Make this a habit and I can promise you that soon you will begin to feel that you are in a much better place.
