Gratitude

Another fantastic concept is showing gratitude to the little and big things that we already have in our lives.

When we wake up in the morning, do we feel thankful to someone out there for giving us another day (hopefully!) to live and enjoy?

Do we take a few moments to feel thankful that we have a roof over our head and hot water to shower? Perhaps neatly pressed clothes readily waiting for us? Maybe even a lovely breakfast? Gratitude towards your family members for bearing with you?….and a car to drive to work? Gratitude towards your employer for giving your an opportunity to show your creativity? Gratitude towards your apartment security guard who stays awake in the night so that you can sleep soundly?

Gratitude felt genuinely from the heart brings out the humility in us and makes us more sensitive to what our wonderful situation is.

You have got exactly what you have with you today because of your past thoughts, past actions. If you wish to change it – for good, then start thinking about what you want to change. Those thoughts will lay the road for where you want to be in the future.

But for the moment, it is important to be grateful, approach your life with a sense of gratitude for all the things that we probably take for granted – like the lovely fresh air we are breathing right now or the warm sunshine.

If you find it tough to be genuinely grateful, use your imagination in the beginning and imagine that you are *genuinely* grateful. Over the period of time, you will become genuinely grateful.

I believe this is the power of prayer, as said in Hindu scriptures.

When we wake up in the morning, we say a short prayer to mother earth, seeking her permission to stamp her before we set our foot on the ground, isn’t it? That’s gratitude! Stay with that feeling the whole day and I think you would have a lovely day.

Have a lovely day today.

One thought on “Gratitude

  1. In a word where our economies rely on the manufacture of discontent so that we will buy the new car, the bigger TV, we can never be reminded enough just to be grateful for all that is right now. Thanks for sharing.
