What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Sometimes I feel a little lost as to what I should write about my gratitude for the week. There are so many things that I should and I am grateful for. However my apprehensiveness to pen them down do not stemmed from a loss of gratitude but more so because they may be a tad too trivial to repeat like a broken record.

But on second thought, that's what gratitude is all about. It is mostly about the little things that present themselves in our daily life as we go about pursuing our life's plan. The sky, the sun, the moon, the weather, the trees, the flowers and not forgetting the people who touched our life everyday ... they are worth our while to be glad. Why wait for one bad thing to happen in order to appreciate all the good things that are already in our presence?

“Gratitude should not be just a reaction to getting what you want, but an all-the-time gratitude, the kind where you notice the little things and where you constantly look for the good, even in unpleasant situations. Start bringing gratitude to your experiences, instead of waiting for a positive experience in order to feel grateful.”

So let's start playing my broken record again ...

1.  I am grateful for God's presence in my life.
2.  I am grateful for my family and friends.
3.  I am grateful that my health is under control.
5.  I am grateful to be living in a great neighborhood.
6.  I am grateful for my talent at writing.
7.  I am grateful for the opportunities that came my way.
8.  I am grateful for the positive people who touched my life.
9.  I am grateful that my life plan is moving smoothly.
10. I am grateful for just being ME and I'd better stop at 10 before the list gets any longer!

It is our obligation to return gratitude to God for every little things, good or bad that happened in our life. These bits and pieces are what makes our life exciting and on purpose.

Thanks for this perspective "it is mostly about the little things that present themselves in our daily life as we go about pursuing our life's plan"

Hi there, thank you so much for dropping by and also for your encouraging comment. Sometimes, I do think that all the trials and tribulations, all the ups and downs are God's design to give us some excitement and adventure to understand his purpose for each and everyone of us.
