In this fast-moving, materialistic world, it becomes difficult for us to find a reason to be grateful whenever times are tough on us. We find it difficult to comprehend that the root of joy is not wealth, it is actually gratefulness. Gratitude leads to transformation and enables a person to reach new heights.
#1 Be Grateful That You Are Healthy
If you want to know the true value of water, ask a person who is thirsting. Just like that, the true value of health is only realized when a person gets sick. It is one of the biggest reasons to be grateful because health enables you to achieve anything in your life. Without health, your options are limited, very limited.
#2 Be Grateful That You Are Alive
Life itself is such a great blessing that we often take it for granted. If you don’t count life as a blessing then you haven’t lived life to its fullest (hopefully, you will). From waking up each morning to seeing the faces of your friends and family, you need to be grateful for every single moment in your life.
#3 Be Grateful For Having a Family
There are many people in this world without a family. Ask them about the value of family and you’ll find out why you need to be grateful for living among those people who care about you. Your family is always present to support you – it is indeed a great blessing.
#4 Be Grateful for Your Past
It doesn’t matter how many opportunities you missed or how many things went wrong in your past. What matters the most is that you’ve come this far. Be grateful that you didn’t lose hope and kept on fighting. Your past is your greatest teacher and you should be grateful for that.
#5 Be Grateful for Little Things in Your Life
Be it your home or job, you should be thankful for everything in your life. Don’t think that you are not lucky because you don’t have a big home or a good paying job, be grateful for having what many others don’t have.
