Are you the type of person that likes to count their blessings? If so this means that you have learned what it means to be grateful for certain things in your life. These can be physical items like owning your own home or they can be on a more personal level, by being grateful for someone in your life.
The concept of being grateful for what you have can be difficult for some people to understand. Instead of focusing on what they have, many people find it easier to be constantly thinking about what they don’t have.
Think about this for a moment. Do you really have to be wealthy to feel as though you are? Will having a million dollars in the bank automatically make you happy? The answer to both of these questions is no. Money doesn’t buy you happiness and you don’t need physical wealth to feel wealthy.
Wealth can be compared to having abundance and gratitude in your life. If you are surrounded by people who love and respect you, you will instantly feel treasured in return. When babies are born they can’t speak or ask for your love, they love and trust you from the moment they enter the world. In return all that they want is to be loved and taken care of with no strings attached!
A person who has just undergone lifesaving surgery can feel extremely grateful to be alive, even though they may be faced with months of rehab and physiotherapy.
When you think about what you have to be grateful for you should look further then just physical items. There is more to life than money and owning all the latest and greatest tech items on the market.
Being grateful for your life consists of understanding what you have gone through to get to where you are today. This includes your struggles and fears as well as your successes and failures. After all who doesn’t learn from making a mistake? These are the moments that you want to relish and enjoy.
Your friends and family are a huge source of people that you can be grateful for. Get into the habit of counting your blessings for having them in your life. This also includes you telling them that you are thankful for them! It’s not always easy to speak those kind of words out loud, but when you do they can have a greater impact and reach than you ever thought possible.
