When you are grateful, you appreciate everything so much more. Life is brighter and more enjoyable. It also seems to flow a lot easier. You become more aware and conscious of everything around you and the true beauty in life. These are a few reasons why I am grateful.
I have something to smile about everyday.
One of the things I am practicing this year is gratitude. I am learning to find joy in the little things in life. I am happy to be alive. I am happy to have all that I have and to be able to do the things I am passionate about everyday. It is easy to complain and to look at the bad in every situation, but it only attracts more negativity into your life. When I sit back and really look at my life, there is so much to be grateful for. God has blessed me in so many ways and he didn’t have to. For this mere reason, I am grateful.
I am beautiful.
I am beautiful because I am created by God and God makes no mistakes. He spent extra time crafting each and every one of us. We are so beautiful and unique to him. It is almost a slap in the face to him to refer to ourselves as anything less than beautiful.
I have amazing people in my life.
I remember when I prayed again and again for God to bring amazing people into my life. God always blesses in abundance and he blessed me by bringing so many amazing people into my life. Too many to count.
I am blessed with the talent of creativity
I have always been a creative soul and I really am my best self when I am being creative and thinking outside the box. While I believe we are all creative, we are creative in different ways. I thank God that my creativity has allowed me to put smiles on other’s faces and has helped other’s dreams to come into existence. I thank God that he is using my creativity to bless the lives of others. I am so happy that I can be of use to him.
