Gratitude will open doors for us that we didn’t even know were possible. If we are genuine in our thanks, and happy with what we have we will be rewarded. It is said that the action of being grateful is the most powerful action there is. It keeps you present to the moment, now wanting for what we don’t have or lingering after what we had in the past.
To me, being grateful means knowing that I will be provided for exactly what I need and and being thankful for just that. I walk into our clinic each day, most days earlier than I need to be just to sit at the desk and take in everything that has been given to me over the past year. I give thanks for a work space to call my own, a husband and a partner to share it with as well as the clients that I see regularly that are the reason why I have a roof over my head and food on my table.
I have learned over the years how important it is to be thankful what what you have. The people that are always comparing themselves with others, always wanting more don’t know true joy. They will always be running after that which the don’t have, always out of reach. Joy comes from knowing you have been given exactly what you need at exactly the right time.
“It is not happy people who are thankful,
it is thankful people that are happy”
