Being thankful is more than a feeling or a thought, is how we act when we don’t get what we want, when we want it. Thankfulness is about knowing that your situation is working in your favor for your good, for the betterment of who you are to be in this life. When you wake up, before you say anything – you could say “Thank you for my life, thank you my sweet sleep, or thank you for the ability to start a new day.” Each and everyday we have an opportunity to “begin again.” Beginning again is a gift. We get a new start and old things pass away. You have the ability to dwell on your past, or you can take the “new day” and go forward with a thankful attitude. You have an ability to start again with a new day, new way of thinking, and new unforeseen opportunities. Many times when we see the least happening in our lives, that’s when God, Higher Self and the Infinite Divine are working the hardest in our difficult situation. The key to taking hold of the “newness” is to never give up, never give in and have awareness when doubt tries to enter and take your thankfulness away. Being thankful is more than how you think, what you want or what you feel – thankfulness is a way of living.
