In this crazy world we are all now, we often forget how to be thankful that we are breathing. All we do is complain, ask for more, work more, do everything to get what we need and wants in a daily basis.
I have a good experience with faith, it’s like the mind over matter for me, knowing that someone is listening to you and to your crazy thoughts. Whenever there is something going on in my life, I talk to myself, hoping that my imaginary confidant will listen and light my way.
Lately, I do not ask for anything fancy, I ask for patience, strength, and light for me to achieve what I want in life. I notice that I ask for the result, I’ll have a tendency to just wait and see. To seek for additional patience and lighted way will convince yourself to strive more as your ‘boosters’ are replenished.
I must admit, there are days that I forgot to say thanks for another day. What I consciously did is this:
I renamed my alarm name with “Thank you Lord for another day!” So when I opened my eyes from the alarm, I will be able to read this unconsciously and say my little prayer to start my day.
You know what? It helps. I mean my day is more brighter, I feel light, and I smile.
I guess, sometimes, we need to do some things to remind ourselves why we existed. A little goes a long way.
I am encouraging you to do something like this. And if you have other tips to be more grateful, let me know. I am more than happy to insert it in my dailies.
