We Should Be More Grateful

Updated on October 22, 2009

Naturally no one perfect in the world. The perfection is only for God. It make us feel unsatisfied with anything. As a human we were created by this condition. Sometimes with our dissatisfaction often make us feel less passionate and dispirited, listless in the work and activities. The worst possibility happen if we deny the God's Love. But actually we are the "perfect" creature in this world. I think there is no religion in all over the world teaches us to complain in life.

Look his face, there is no sadness.

I will post another picture of him. As we see the picture above and below, He is a human like us. With younger age he could bring his life more useful. He always appreciate and give a color by him self without sadness. Just look the picture carefully, he had given special talented by the God. With different from what we have as common people. But there is no insecure feeling and disappointed by his condition. He enjoyed with his activities everyday.

he always active

Why do we feel sad?
Why do we feel uncomfortable in life?
Why do we feel the financial crisis?
Why do we feel as a victim?
Why do we feel insecure?
Why we don't have passion in life?

Don't we move and open our heart to grateful to the god. And try to accept any conditions that we received today. Should we learn to this kid in giving the meaning of life?

Where's your smile?
Where's your laughter?
Where's your joy?
Where's your grateful?

Sometimes we often find the reason to do something and avoiding it as possible. Because we do not deserve and we feel don't have a power doing that. This makes us insecure, feel guilty and didn't appreciated what we had.

Why we don't appreciate ourselves? Start from now use the power inside us to appreciate what we've got under any circumstances. Don't hesitate to say thank you........inside the heart or say it out loud as a manifestation of our gratitude to the god. That "magic" word is good as an affirmation. I hope this hub could increasing our spirituality, as a self motivation and bring this life becomes more beautiful......amen.

      Awesome lesson about being grateful for all our blessings. This child shines as an example of happiness and gratitude. How can we possibly find room to complain? Thank you so much for the reminder of this valuable point. Gratitude truly opens the doors to blessings.

      As you say we should always find the things in which to be grateful instead of focusing on negative things. Life presents some of both and it is up to us to decide how to navigate those waters. You, my dear sir, know which way to paddle! Thanks for sharing this uplifting hub with us. Useful, beautiful and up vote!
