Celebrate your life joyfully;
Celebrate yourself humbly;
Celebrate your blessings gratefully
William Arthur Ward
Today is the day to celebrate our many blessings!
One of the best ways I know to celebrate my blessings is to journal about the many good things I am surrounded by. Did you ever notice that it is during the hard times that we need gratitude the most? Whenever I think that I'm having a bad day all I need to do is count my blessings.
I am always grateful for the basics, such as a roof over my head, food to eat and my family. Just being together and celebrating one another’s company is always a wonderful thing.
Many of the things that enrich my life are simple ordinary things. Smiles and hugs top the list. Just inhaling the heady air of existence, the joy of being is a blessing indeed.
We need to take quiet time to feel gratitude for what we have, not impatience for what we don’t have. Most of us already have the ingredients of a happy life. It’s just that we tend to take these for granted and focus on unmet wants and unfulfilled desires. Giving thanks is better than shopping and cheaper too.
Life is too full of blessings to waste time and attention on substitutes. To live, give, forgive, celebrate and praise are still the best ways of turning life into a blessing.
I hope your Thursday is one to be Thankful for too!
