Be grateful

Quote

Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals. If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more.

Roy T. Bennett

Be thankful

Merry christmas, fellow motivationdaily-readers!

I want to make good use of your christmas spirit and motivate all of you to be thankful for what you have in life.

There is always something to be thankful for and today is a good time to be reminded of that fact!

  1.  Be thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means you have enough to eat.
  2. Be thankful for the mess you clean up after a party, because it means you’ve been surrounded by friends.
  3. Be thankful for the taxes that you pay, because it means you’re employed.
  4. Be thankful that you lawn needs mowing and windows need fixing, because it means you have a home.
  5. Be thankful for your heating bills, because it means you are warm.
  6. Be thankful for the laundry, because it means you have clothes to wear.
  7. Be thankful for the space you find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means you can walk.
  8. Be thankful for the lady who sings off-key behind you in church, because it means you can hear.
  9. Be thankful when people complain about the government, because it means we have freedom of speech.
  10. Be thankful for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means you’re alive and have something to do!

Also: Let this be a reminder of the fact that it is always about perspective! How you view certain situations and how you react to them is way, way more important than what is actually happening! Always bear that in mind and keep your positivity!

Happy holidays!
