Making The Best Of It

‘When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive- to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love – then make that day count!’
Steve Maraboli

One of the simplest and quickest ways to turn a negative and bad mood into a more positive one is to be grateful.

A few things you can feel gratitude for are: The sunshine and the seasons. Your roof. Your well-being. A good film or a favourite song. Your friends, family, colleagues and just about anyone walking down the street.

Just try if for a minute and see how it changes how you feel. And it is a win/win solution. You feel great because you are grateful about your world and the people you are grateful for, feel great too, because they feel appreciated. So don´t forget about gratitude or you may forget about the happiness that is already in your life. What is a guarantee is that we can always decide how to interpret what we see.

“Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy the thorn bush has roses.”
Proverb

  1. So true! And one of my favorite topics–gratitude, thankfulness, appreciation. As Elie Weisel said, “When a person doesn’t have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.”

    Very well-written post!
