What I’m Grateful For Right Now

How often do you practice and express gratitude?

It’s good to practice gratitude. It helps you appreciate all the awesomeness in life and puts things into perspective.

Time To Show A Little Gratitude

I think it’s good to appreciate things (and people) while we still have them because everything could change in the blink of an eye. Life is unpredictable and you never know when you may lose everything so we should show appreciation while we still can.

I’d like to share a few things that I’m grateful for in my life right now: My health

I haven’t been sick in a while. I was one of those people who was always coming down with something whether it’s a cramp or flu.

I was afraid that I would catch the Coronavirus and was fearful for my life because my immune system isn’t the best but thank God I didn’t.

I’m happy and healthy!

Having 24-hour internet connection at home

Due to lockdown, we were forced to spend great amounts of time at home. As a result, we had to write exams online as well and I’m grateful that I got to do that in the comfort of my own home.

Having complete control over how I spend my time

Being unemployed is not ideal but “every dark cloud has a silver lining”.

I have complete control over how I spend my days. I get to exercise whenever I want and read and study at my own time too. This does require some discipline though as having too much free time also makes it easier to waste time.

My friends

I have a nice, small group of friends, well rather family, and I love them to bits. We can go months without seeing each other but when we link up we always have a good time. They are there for me through whatever and whenever!

My mom

I’m always grateful for my mom but I just thought I’d mention her today.

She does so much for me and as old as I am she continues to look after me. I appreciate how patient and understanding she’s been of my situation. I hope she knows that.

If you haven’t, give gratitude journaling a try. What I do each night (well most nights) is open my Bliss and pick an exercise to do before I go to bed for example a Gratitude exercise or one they call Three Good Things where I write down 3 good things that I experienced that day. It can be as simple as a cup of coffee that I enjoyed, a relacing walk I took that day, or a simple conversation I enjoyed with a friend.

I go to sleep feeling peaceful and content.

In closing, I’d just like to say, tell your loved ones you love them and be grateful and appreciate even the little things in life.

What are you grateful for?

xoxo
