Each day, if we pause we could see that there is something for which to be thankful, something that deserves gratitude and appreciation. Even if this is as small as being able to feel the warm blankets over top of us, going downstairs to get a cup of coffee and to take that cute little dog on a walk, being able to wake up, being able to move and to be aware, able to have a rational mind in which to think. Being able to breathe, and to walk unassisted, these are all things most of us take advantage.
In everything, be thankful. Be grateful that you are in a situation as fortunate as the one you are in. The simple act of being thankful can change everything; if your mind state is grateful, then it will change your life and give you a sense of optimism. Through being optimistic, it is empowering your whole being to fight, not to give up, and possibly achieve more than ever thought possible.
Just think of one possible thing to be happy about and thankful for and it will brighten your day!
Especially when you’re having a hard Monday, and feeling all depressed, that’s when it’s time to reflect, and push the thankfulness up to your heart. I love being thankful for Mondays because the whole week is an open book to be done with it as we will. Writing lists to accomplish always provides a great feeling, checking off the list of accomplishments feels even better.
