No matter how difficult your situation, there is always someone in a tougher spot. I am sure you can remember a day when you were feeling really frustrated about your situation and you heard that someone else lost a loved one. Your perspective completely changed, right? In an instant you paused and reflected on your own blessings.
But what if….What if you used this same perspective every single day to be grateful for your blessings without having to hear about someone else’s misfortune or misery. So there is tremendous power in being grateful.
Gratitude helps keep us in the present. If we are living in the here and now, we can recognize and reflect on our own gifts. Being present, allows us to to spend less time feeling lost and wishing for tomorrow.
It also helps us keep a positive attitude. There are so many negative emotions tied to jealousy and envy. Being grateful can help you remain focused on the things that go right versus the things that go wrong.
