Some of us might not know the real meaning of “Thankful and Blessed” until we have none because we take things that we have for granted.

A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you that it will start to feel like one. Time spent living is time worth appreciating.

Be thankful for all the obstacles in your life. They have strengthened you as you continue with your journey. Every struggle in your life has shaped you into the person you are today. Be thankful for the hard times; they can only make you stronger.

Sometimes, we just have to be happy with what people can offer us. Even if it’s not what we want, at least it’s something.

Be thankful for your trials. If you’re being tested, you’re being perfected. This means you have a divine purpose and reason to rejoice. There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.

You can choose to be sad for what you lost or to be thankful for what you still have. I am thankful to all those difficult people in my life; they have shown me exactly who I do not want to be!

If you need something to be thankful for then check your pulse. Always be thankful for the gift of life. When some things go wrong, take a moment to be thankful for the many more things that are still going right. 

Life is too short! If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head, and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of the world. If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy. If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week. If you can read this message you are more fortunate than 3 billion people in the world who cannot read it at all. We would all be happier and have plenty to be grateful for…if only we would count our blessings rather than our problems.
