There is one thing that every person on this planet has in common and wants throughout their lives and that is to be happy.
How we imagine our happiness will differ from human to human.
There are lots of people in the world that look to have everything anyone could ever want and they are not happy. They are looking for something different or more of the same.
There are lots of people in the world that look happy and have considerably less.
How does this be?
Gratitude is the key to happiness. When you are grateful for what you have, the environment around you, and the people you choose to have in your life you will be at your happiest.
So how do you become grateful?
One of the easiest ways of being grateful is to get into the habit of writing down every morning 10 things you are grateful for. Look around and see what is around you. The sky, the grass, the ocean, the desert, the people, the wildlife and start to see the beauty that surrounds you. So often we overlook these things because they are always there.
When you look around, look at the things that are given to you. Think of them as a gift. You have not bought them but they are very valuable to you.
Every moment of every day is a gift. It is a moment given to you to experience however you want to experience it. Every moment is a new opportunity to start over again or look at things from a different perspective and this is the key to our happiness.
We have the opportunity to enjoy ourselves so much but most of the time we are rushing around with work, children, and our own lives that we miss the opportunity.
Gratitude turns everything we have into enough!
When you consciously start to see the beauty around you and practice being grateful you will find the happiness you are looking for.
Stop what you are doing and look around you to see the beauty that is given to you on a daily basis and listen to what is around you.
“An attitude of Gratitude changes everything. Make sure you reflect on something you’re grateful for every day.” – Bob Proctor
