Gratitude in November or Daily?

Gratitude in November or Daily

Yes this is November and Thanksgiving has passed.  Most people were probably Thankful on Thanksgiving.  Is one still thankful a few days after?  That’s the real question.  Gratitude is one of the most important emotions that can change your vibration.  It can put things into perspective.

Driving past a hospital will for the most part not cause one to give it a second thought.  But there are people in there that are fighting for their lives.  There is also the family that is worried about them.  Old people, young people, babies, mothers, fathers, children are there hoping to get well.

Many people driving by the hospital on their way to work or running errands.  They could feel stressed, exhausted, anger, frustration, worry, fear and unhappy.  The people that are in the hospital would give anything to just be able to go to work.  Or they would love to pick up their kids from soccer practice.  But instead they are going through testing, treatments, medication and most likely fear about the future.

Be thankful for all of the things you are able to do.  Of course we would all love to be on the beach with some super hot and sexy playmate drinking margaritas soaking up the sun. Is that possible?  Of course it’s possible for many people if you plan it and take the trip.  But there is ALWAYS going to be responsibilities and things that just have to be done.

So take a moment and be glad for your responsibilities.  Appreciate all of the things you are able to do.  Repeated practice of this will improve your outlook on life.

Another thing to do is to start a gratitude journal.  It really does help.  Can’t think about what to be grateful for?  How about you can breathe?  You can walk, talk, work, cook, shop, go to the bathroom unassisted.  Your kidneys are working.  Your body is healthy.  Appreciate the things you have and more things will come to you naturally.

Give it a try.  What have you got to lose except being unappreciative.

Let’s Recognize all the Good

Sometimes in life it can be super easy to see the negative of life.  I mean face it there is a lot of rotten stuff going on in the world.  While my intention is to discuss positivity it can be difficult to be positive when all that people choose to see is the bad.  But where is exactly this bad coming from?

Let’s talk about the news for just a minute.  Obviously they have a job to report current events and what is going on in the world.  So most people can watch the news for 30 minutes per day or go online to find out what’s happening.  But it can be difficult to limit the intake of news to just 30 minutes.  The reason why is because there are so many news broadcasts.  So they have the regular 6:00 news.  Then after the news they have to bring on more commentators to discuss the news and it just goes on and on and on.  The news for the most part is tragedy after tragedy.  It can weigh heavy on people.  Then next thing you know you were having a good day until you heard this really sad story and now one is sad or mad.

For that reason the news just doesn’t serve much purpose in my life.  I figure if it’s really important then the news will just come to me.

So what would happen if instead of thinking about the bad things going on in the world, we would instead focus on all of the beautiful things?  Could it change your mood from being a real sad, mad person to a loving beautiful soul. Perhaps if that’s something that one desires.
