What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Life is full of opportunities for us to give thanks. William A. Ward reminded that "God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you?" Have you seek out any of the opportunities to give thanks today?

At some level, the warm emotional rush when we are thankful for the blessings in our life contributes to our increased energy, optimism, generosity and social connections. Grateful people not only count and take joy in their blessings, but they help to spread the influence of feeling thankful to people around them through their words and deliberate displays of appreciation and happiness. Saying thank you helps others feel good and your attitude of gratitude is a positive vibration that attracts positive people to you in return.

Let's find the opportunities that have been incubating in your mind and heart to be thankful for and start to live in the power of gratefulness.  Here's my random list of gratitude for the week;

1.  I am grateful for God' presence in my daily life.

2.  I am grateful that Nick has completed his final semester in college and hopefully onward bound to undertake his degree at the soonest.

3.  I am grateful to be a member of an outsource writing community led by a professional, friendly and supportive leader.

4.  I am grateful that the sale transaction for one of my property is finally completed after an unforeseen delay of almost a year.

5.  I am grateful that my Air Asia booking to Paris has been transferred and finalized on Malaysia Airlines.  We're off to Paris-London-Zurich in 10 days' time!

6.  I am grateful for my freedom ... the freedom to think, act, speak, write and express whatever that goes on in my head.

Dear blog-friends, have you singled out the things in your day to day activities that can arouse the warm emotional rush of gratitude yet?  If yes, by all means continue with what you are doing.  If not, it is never too late to start your own gratitude habit.
