What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

You don't have to be rich and famous to have gratitude. You don't have to survive a tragedy or overcome a terminal illness to be thankful. No one should wait for these moments to make gratitude matters.

It is important to count our blessings no matter where we are in our life today. Let's pause for a moment now ... not later, not tomorrow but NOW to look at our life. Note down the pleasant stuffs, the positive thoughts, the happy moments that you could feel a wee bit of thankfulness. Even if your mind's blocked, write down at least one thing that brings out the slightest positive feeling for you.

"If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul."
~Rabbi Harold Kushner~

There's always something to be grateful for. Next, do share it with someone. If you're shy or uncomfortable, then share it with me here!

So, here's my random list of gratitude this week;

1. I am grateful for everyone in my family.
2. I am grateful for the wonderful health of my family.
3. I am grateful for the peace within my family.
3. I am grateful for the comforts in my life.
4. I am grateful to be able to see the world outside my home-ground.
5. I am grateful for the people who have touched my life.
6. I am grateful for a blissful retirement.
7. I am grateful for a joyful Christmas.
8. I am grateful for a prosperous 2011 and all its abundance.

It's your turn NOW!

Hi Evelyn, that's the way to go Dear! Wishing you all the best for 2012 too!

Each and everyone of us do have our very own bitter and sweet moments. None can be deemed as worse or better than another person's. We are in God's classroom and these are His lessons that guide us towards an enlightened path to living purposefully according to our individualistic strengths and weaknesses.

We will surprise ourselves with our inner strength when we rise to the occasion during circumstances when we are no longer given any further alternatives.
