3 Things to be Grateful for This Morning

Hi, and welcome to the new day!

Seeing the good things in life might sound easy at times, but sometimes it’s hard. Not because they are necessarily hard to find, but because our mind is sometimes clouded with so much negativity, and it’s difficult to get through it. How to deal with such a situation, then?

My simple answer would be: get a break and do it later. Or, just keep pushing. Either way is always our choice. The latter is one I choose to do to write these 3 things I am grateful for this morning.

One, I am grateful for being alive (again!) this morning. Being alive means one could live another day, and another day means a gift. No matter how holy you are or how kind you are as a person, no one deserves this life. It’s all by God’s will. So if you live another day, it means God loves you. By His love one gets life.

Two, I am grateful for short yet meaningful conversation I had with a friend at the office. It was about how life would likely be when we are older and what kind of legacy we’d leave to our kids. It was short but so deep. I liked that dialogue.

Three, I am grateful for the sufficiency I have day to day. I don’t have a lot of money in my bank account, I don’t have (yet) business outside of my corporate job, and I have to provide for my family and my parents. The thing is, I always have enough food daily, and I could pay my bills, and I am free of debt. I am also pretty healthy!

One can be thankful for the food, the weather, the rest he or she could get, family and friends, a piece of technology, job, even the smell of a flower! May you also find good things in your life and express it in the best way possible. Good luck!
