Everyone desires to live a joyful life. But how can we achieve it? How can we live a joyful life and be grateful despite the not-so-good things that occasionally happen in our life? Understand there is a balance in the universe. Because even when you are feeling deprived or in joy, sad or happy, right or wrong, there is an opposite that exists within it and you can become grateful for it all.
We must understand that bad things give you valuable lessons you should be grateful for. When you have this mindset, it’s not difficult to see the good things you could get out of something bad. This way you will always have reasons to be grateful. You will be grateful if your mind focuses on what you have rather than what you don’t have.
But many of us find ourselves in the dilemma of feeling the need to choose between being happy with what you have and wanting more. Does wanting more mean your ungrateful? It depends on what it is you want and the situation. I believe that we came here onto this earth to create. Creating helps us express who we are. To have monetary gain from that is not wrong. Many of us fear wanting money. To me it is about the intent behind it. To want more money just for the sake of money isn’t a form creating from our soul. But when we back it with authentic intentions of creating something better for ourselves and the world, to do something we love and share it with the world then all sorts of success will come, personal and monetary. We all deserve the best that life has to offer, and to downplay that is downplaying our brilliance and our birthright as a human and spiritual being. And brilliant we all are. We just need to let the rest of the world know it too.
Our greatest challenges do become our greatest gifts. Every negative experience provides us with an opportunity for growth. Experiencing gratitude for everything helps us to become more understanding and less judgemental. Therefore, it is imperative to experience thankfulness and appreciation for each thing that enters our life to gain our greatest wisdom. Just realize that gratitude is directly connected to love. And love is what makes the world go round!
