One of the best things we can do is practice the habits that lead to more happiness – like showing gratitude. When you feel happy and confident, you’re going to be able to take risks, and be able to try to learn new things and feel good about those experiences. And then allow yourself to share the love and gratitude you have with others.
We all know that life gets hectic and a feeling of being overwhelmed can happen quickly. But it is at times like these that we need to take a moment to focus on the people and things you are grateful for in life. Because being thankful gives you perspective on your situation and shows you what is really important.
When you find yourself wishing for something you don’t have, or wishing your life would be different, start your quest for your wish by being thankful for what is already in your life. This will bring you back to the present moment. Make a list of what you are thankful for right now even if all you can think of is that you are alive and can breathe. You don’t want to miss the gifts right in front of you, because you are always looking beyond what is in the present moment to what once was or what might be.
Be thankful for what is!
You’ll be happy to be in the moment instead of some place else.
Remember, life is not about how much time we have to live but how we lived with the time we had.
