My daily intention is to express gratitude. To live my life with a spirit of gratitude, with an expectation that, come what may, life is worth living. Each day that I wake I give thanks.

Gratitude, as an attitude, makes such a difference every day. It’s amazing how choosing each day to express gratitude can change our mindset from negativity or bland lethargy, to a positive, joyful attitude.

Understanding gratitude

The concept of being grateful for what you have can be hard for some people to understand. Instead of focusing on what they have, many people find it easier to be constantly thinking about what they dont have.

When you think about what you have to be grateful for, you should look further then just physical items, or personal health. There is more to life than money and owning all the latest and greatest tech items on the market.

Being grateful for your life consists of understanding what you have gone through to get to where you are today. This includes your struggles and fears as well as your successes and failures.

Don’t we all realize we can learn from making a mistake? These are the moments that you want to relish and enjoy. 

Be thankful for friends and family

Your friends and family are a huge source of people that you can be grateful for. Get into the habit of counting your blessings for having them in your life. This also includes you telling them that you are thankful for them!

It’s not always easy to speak those kind of words out loud, but when you do they can have a greater impact and reach than you ever thought possible. Live life with a spirit of gratitude.
