For some reason, the mind is very good at fixating on something that is lacking, even when everything is just fine. We can be surrounded by 100 blessings and be completely comfortable, and still, it only takes one thought or one desire to ruin the whole thing. Be mindful of when these thoughts come up. The more you notice that they are trying to ruin your mood, the more you can not pay them attention. Instead, keep a habit of being grateful for things, even when they are small. Are you grateful for your socks? Are you grateful that you can breathe without it hurting? Are you grateful that you are not in a hospital bed? Are you grateful that you have a full belly? There are always countless things to be grateful for. What are you grateful for?
~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~
Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?
