Gratitude


"Have you ever heard of the attitude of gratitude? If you wake up every morning thinking about what you are grateful for you will notice a significant difference in your day. Nothing can keep you down, you go through your day happy and smiling, and you have an overall feeling of all is well. You have released the power within you to design your day.

When you are grateful for what you have then you are happy with what you have. By feeling satisfied, by saying life is good, by choosing to be happy, you attract more good things into your life.

Never take anything for granted. You never know how long you have here on this earth and you never know how long the people you love will be with you. It is so important that you take time to be grateful, to say "I love you", and to take advantage of the happiness surrounding you.

There is always something to be grateful for. Do not wait for a wake up call to shake your world and force you to open your eyes. Take a look around you, open your eyes, count your blessings, choose to be happy with what you have, practice the attitude of gratitude daily and watch more blessings surround you."

Written by Karina Loureira

I found the above was so true and it's a great reminder for all of us not to take everything that we have on our lives for granted. Life is too short and we will never know what will happen tomorrow.

Every morning without fail, when I looked into the mirror, I would smile and see my own reflection in the mirror, thank the above that I was alive, in good health, ready to overcome everyday's challenge in positive way.

When I walked into the MRT station, the first thing that I did, was to look up into the sky and to see how the clouds looked like, what colors and what shapes;  then a smile would appear on my face again,  felt grateful and thankful for the wonderful (good and bad) weather, chance given to breath the fresh air, enjoy the beauty of the nature, all my beloved families, friends, colleagues, and so on.

The 'Emptiness' mantra song on my earpieces calmed my heart and mind as I continued walking and was ready to face another day in front of me,  and to wish that all sentient beings be happy.

Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu.

Thank you Sonam! Many were not written by me but I would love to share those good things with others. It has helped me a lot and hope that it can benefit all of you too.

When I'm down, I myself often referred to my old blog posts to lift my spirit up and to remind myself again to be positive as like the law of attraction says that it will attract what you think back to you.

I'm glad that you were inspired with those posts :)

Keep reading Sonam and take care!
