Life flows when we give and when we accept the blessings given to us. Expressing gratitude is not difficult, but certainly is necessary. Being appreciative for the blessings bestowed on us, little or big, requires being in a place of gratitude. For when we ‘count our blessings’ we invite more blessings because we are showing appreciation.
Lately, I’ve been expressing my gratitude to God and to the Universe for the blessings which have been given to me. It seems that the more I thank God and the Universe for even the simplest of gifts, the more blessings flow to me. It’s that Law of Attraction mentality I think. Have you heard of Law of Attraction? I’ve written many posts on it before in my blog. Just search Law of Attraction and surely you’ll find more about it here.
I think in our busy lives we forget to be grateful for the simplest things which we take for granted. We become disconnected with the gifts we receive in our daily life. Just having shelter, food, health, love and income, bare minimums is a blessing that we forget to acknowledge for there are many who lack these minimums. Instead I think sometimes we are focused on what we don’t have or what we want, instead of what we currently have. It’s a different way of thinking for some, but it’s a choice in how you look at it.
Is that glass half full or half empty for you?
Or are you just grateful to have the glass that can be refilled?
That’s how life is – you choose how you look at things and you can choose again when you learn more about life. That’s the great part of life lessons! We learn and grow at different speeds, but as we connect, we learn more because we share our lessons with those who are interested in connecting.
I have learned so much from blogging friendships that we’ve made and from friends who have taken the time to share what they have learned from life lessons. My heartfelt thanks to all of you! I hope that in some way, I have helped you as well.
If I haven’t said it often enough, you do make a difference and your gentle wisdom is as refreshing as it is useful. Thank you!
