Are you grateful?

Have you thought about how lucky you are for the life you have right now? Was the last time you talked about how grateful you were at your birthday dinner, thanksgiving, christmas dinner? How come we do not do that more often. I find that sometimes we tend to forget how lucky we are and that there is always a brighter side to every story.

One thing that I struggle with is opening up to people about my feelings and my life and when serious conversations come up I deviate and make it comedic instead. I felt that I was not able to develop real connections but thinking back I am playing a role. Although I may not be developing those deep connections at least I can say that I made that person smile which I feel goes a long way.

Just how I was complaining about my not being able to express myself. I am sure that a majority of us are probably complaining about not getting our coffee at the right temperature or not have enough lettuce in our sandwich. Personally I feel that it may not be a big issue but that is me I tend to not complain as much about anything. However, you could think about those situations this way, and say well, at least I have something to eat or at least I have the opportunity to grab that cup of coffee when others may not.

Something that I have recently started doing as an exercise is writing what I am grateful everyday on a sticky and putting it on my wall. Doing this has allowed me to see that there is always something to be happy about. This helps especially when you may think that you have had a bad day or you are questioning your happiness about life in general.

I would like everyone to try this and let me know how this goes. As always thanks for listening and I hope that this helps you in some way shape or form.

Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
