    What are you thankful for in your life?

    Webster defines “Thankful” as: 
        Conscious of benefit received
        Well pleased

    What in your life are you thankful for?  Feel free to state whatever comes to mind when you consider what it means to be thankful. While we all desire something more in our lives sometimes we have to take time and clearly understand and appreciate what we have.  The grass is not always greener on the other side but mastering the art of being thankful allows the universe to open up different possibilities.

    Your question caused me to take a look at a little notebook I started to fill in a few days ago.   The idea was to jot down a few things I'm grateful for in my life.  Not my own idea but something I'd read somewhere and wondered how it would go...

    Well, in three days I wrote down 58 things for which I'm grateful and I haven't even looked at the book today.  I'm sure I will think of a few more things.  For once we start to look at all the myriad things we take for granted in our lives we will realize that there are just so, so many things, happenings, and circumstantes for which we can all be grateful.

    Thank you for this question.  It came at just the right time for I'd once again begun to focus on those few negatives and not upon the simply hundreds - indeed thousands - of blessing we all have in our lives.

      I think it's human nature to focus on what we don't have and what we want however when we take a minute to count our blessings we are rich beyond measure.

But, I have got enough courage to face them, and still I am alive. So, I will be thankful to my mind, and heart, for having no negative thoughts, and staying positive, all the time.

    I am very, very thankful for my job.  A lot of people may complain about their work, but then they should try being unemployed for a few months!

    I am grateful for having a lovely family who loves me including my husband. I am grateful for my good health. I am grateful for having a job to go to. And I am grateful for everything that goes right in my life and also those things that go wrong in my life because I learn lessons from them.
