Being Thankful


Sunrise from my back door, 15th December 2015

A couple of years ago, I heard a talk during a Hay House Summit event by a speaker who suggested that we try to find ten things to be thankful for each and every day.

While I don’t always get to ten, I do try to stop and appreciate the beautiful things in life.  It doesn’t matter whether you believe in God, the Force or Father Christmas, the act of being thankful is a great way of encouraging your spiritual and emotional health.  It’s so easy to get caught up in the routine, the worries of the day and to concentrate on the things that aren’t as we wish.  Making the effort to stand back for a moment and really appreciate something – anything – and mentally say ‘thank you’ reminds us of the positive things in life and puts everything into perspective.

So start with saying thank you for one thing a day and who knows, you might end up by being grateful for ten things a day sooner than you think.

Remember: no matter how hard (you think) your life may be, there’s always something to be grateful for.

Here’s wishing you a wonderful Christmas and all the best for the New Year.
