You have overcome, survived all the bad days even when you did not think you could, and you will get through the next obstacle. But you must first change the way you think. Stop allowing all the negative thoughts from taking over by approaching the day with gratefulness.
Have you ever started your day focusing on all the things that are going wrong, what you must get done or what you have not achieved? Only to find that as you continue to focus on the “things” that your day keeps getting more out of control. Leaving you feeling empty and overwhelmed.
But instead, stop, take a moment, and focus all everything you have and being grateful for each blessing. Sure, you overslept, and you may be running behind, but God woke you up, you can breathe, you have a roof over your head, food to eat, and the list goes on. The blessings surround us.
So, when we complain and allow our situations to overwhelm us, we stay stuck. We become selfish and focus on what we don’t have comparing ourselves to everyone else that has more. Reaping more negativity because God is not going to give you more than what you can manage.
If you want to flourish, then be grateful. Our blessings abound and multiply when we are thankful because everything, we are given is a gift. He wants to give to all of us, but we must also be responsible and nurture that we have. When we cherish these gifts, we reap more. Living with gratefulness brings positivity even in adversity.
