Be Grateful

We say it so often: “Life is short.” But, how many of us live our lives as if we
really believe it is short? If we did, would we waste our time on petty
jealousies, and hunger for material stuff that does little to nourish our soul?
There comes a point at which we realise that the acquisition of one more
material item is not going to make any difference to our happiness. We get
so upset over minor incidents on a daily basis, when our time could be better
spent with a loved one or appreciating the beauty of this world we have been
so privileged to call home. “Home!” How lucky we are to have one when so
many others are homeless. This abundance that exists in North America has
made us forget, from time to time, that others in the rest of the world are not
as fortunate.

You must be more aware of the gifts that this life has given to you. Always
remember the importance of the lives you have touched and those that have
touched yours. Even the most unfortunate person can find something for
which to be grateful. When you recognise that you do have something to be
grateful for, it lifts your soul and allows you to see so much more in your life
that you can feel good about. You need to use your blessings as the
medication to ease your pain. Gratitude fosters generosity, which encourages
more gratitude, thus creating a self-perpetuating cycle of positive actions. Be
grateful always, as it is the key that opens the door to more of God’s gifts.
