It’s quite amazing I haven’t mentioned this before, especially as so many people keep talking to me about it, so I decided this week is the time to make a change and I started listing things I am grateful for.
It’s been interesting because you start thinking about not just the big things but the more basic things, yesterdays list consisted of the following:
I am grateful for the Gym – I am trying really hard to get back in to some kind of routine so I was soooo grateful to have gone to the gym.
I am grateful for family – I am grateful for the love all my family have for me, I am a very very lucky girl when it comes to this.
I am grateful for friends – The offering of guidance, support and general advice, I have a wonderful group of friends whom I am very grateful for.
I am grateful for time alone – I spend a lot of time on my own nowadays, many years ago this would have been a challenge but nowadays, it is something I really enjoy.
I am grateful for warmth – On cold days, how wonderful is it to be in a warm home. To have access to warm clothes and a roof over your head.
Finally and most importantly…
I am grateful for my breath – To be alive, to live another day, to have good health, to have more opportunities to reach your goals and ambitions. Even if your lost and you feel like you can’t find your way, as long as you have this, you honestly have everything – although it may not feel like it.
I could go on but I shall stop. It is so easy to get caught up in the small things that might play on your mind, get self absorbed and in some way trapped in your own world of constant ungratefulness for what you have, so taking a step back and reflecting on gratitude really helps you to see whats important and how lucky you really are. Remember, not everyone is as lucky as you…
So, tell me, what are you grateful for today?
