Yesterday, I never promised you a rose garden.’delightfully serenaded: ‘
Today, there’s a different sort of promise. Today, I want you to promise me something precious – a promise of Gratitude.
Promise me that you will whisper a little prayer to thank Him for each and every blessing. Promise me that you will do it right now.
Never mind about how you are feeling; ignore that self-pity and the sense of inadequacy. Quit pointing fingers and stop blaming others. Allez! End it all. Pronto. ASAP.
Enough is enough! Or, as I usually say, ‘nuff is ‘nuff.
It’s so simple to pin the ‘it’s all your fault’ tale (pun intended) on a scapegoat. It’s all too easy to shrug off responsibility for the fiasco that you, yourself, have created.
Bickering, backbiting and jealousies only result in hate and more hate. The Green-Eyed Monster, deservedly, is an unwelcome guest so let your soul be free of it. Act right now. Enjoy peace and contentment.
Let grace and gratitude become a part of your life. Be at peace with yourself. Focusing on gratefulness will keep you centred and will most definitely help you to ward off negativity.
There are five little things you can do each day to nourish your sense of gratitude. You’ll find them here.
Certainly, these two words: ‘Thank you’ warm the heart and spur the soul. Work on focusing on what you have – not on what you don’t have – and on all the oh-so-many ways to help you have more gratitude for the gift of life.
Indeed, the world is full of beauty. Just open your eyes and note the majesty and splendour that surrounds you. Observe the stuff of life….the things that you so often take for granted. Give importance to them.
And be grateful… Promise me.
