How grateful are you today? Gratitude abundance teaches you to be grateful for the little things in order to get the bigger things in life you need.
Gratitude is learning to be thankful. Many people think that they have little to be grateful for, however most of us have more things than we think.
One thing that many people can be grateful for is their health. If you are not healthy, you may realize how grateful you should have been when you did have health. If you have health, even if you were to lose everything else, it is often possible to start all over again and regain all that was lost.
Most of us should be grateful for the shelter that we have over our heads. Around the world today, there are millions of persons that would be grateful to have only one of the rooms in our homes, no matter how run down that home may be, to protect them from the rain, cold or heat that is outside tonight.
If you are reading this, you likely have electricity in your home. You have a computer and power. Think of the millions to whom such luxuries do not exist.
Are you grateful for the food that lines your cabinets tonight. Millions of children as well as their parents will go to be hungry tonight. These families are not just in third world countries but can be in your own state, city or even on your own street. If most of us do not want to eat what is in our homes we can jump in the car and pick up fast food without a second thought.
Have you expressed gratitude for the job you have? In the recent economic recession, thousands of persons have lost their jobs and their primary means of supporting their families. Even so, most of these are eligible for at least a year to eighteen months of unemployment compensation. Without a job or working, they are bringing in 75 to 80 percent of the income that they had when working full time.
Think about your family of origin Most persons found this family offered love and appreciation as they grew to adulthood. Tonight, children will go to bed in a strange home in foster care. A judge may randomly move them to another home without reason at any time. Other children remain in abusive homes and go to bed in fear every night hoping that their fears do not turn into reality.
Even with so many things to be grateful for, there are many people that live their lives focusing only on the negative things of life. They focus on what they do not have rather on those things that they do have and should be showing gratitude for. As a result of their negative thinking, they are forcing away the very things that they say they want to have.
Gratitude abundance teaches you how to be thankful for the little things. This will change your way of thinking so that you can use the power of positive thinking to get the things that you really want.
