It’s very easy to express gratitude for the good things life brings. We all do that from time to time. Feeling grateful is a wonderful emotion. It transmits positive energy out into the Universe that then lure elements that lie within the same frequency.

How is that possible?

When you help those in need and they express gratitude, how does that make you feel? Does it feel great to be appreciated? Would you help them out in future too? You obviously would!

Well, what if your effort is not appreciated and they criticize and humiliate you instead? Would that affect the way you feel about them? What are the possibilities of you jumping in to help them should another similar situation arise? Very bleak? I won’t blame you for that.

Everyone likes to be appreciated. Gratitude, expressed even subtly sends out positive signals that lure more positivity towards you. This applies to everything that exists within the boundaries of this Universe.

Expressing gratitude for the less-perfect things in life will also emit positive signals that will work towards enhancing your situation.

Being grateful for everything does not necessarily mean that you are satisfied with them. It does not imply that you do not require a better life.


That leaky roof may have been annoying you for weeks, but you still need to be grateful for the fact that you do have a roof over your head! Someone out there is less fortunate.

You may feel that you have the worst job in town, but I bet that you would be able to find someone who would find your job a real blessing!

Been in an abusive relationship? Just be grateful for the fact that you are not in one right now. Even if you are still in that relationship, you can be grateful that you still have time to do something about it.

As long as you are alive, you have something to be grateful for. Life is never going to be a huge garden blooming with roses that come without thorns. Its how you feel about the thorns that matter.

If you think your garden has more thorns than anyone else does, think again. Your life would seem so much better to someone else out there.

Things do go wrong for life is never exciting without the curves but if you want less curves in future, learn to love the ones you have now.

There are too many things we take for granted and we fail to relaize how valuable they are. Like the day I never did notice how grateful I should be for my eyesight until I came across a blind lady. When she expressed her regret for not being able to see this beautiful world, I began to see everything through her eyes, again...for the first time.

From then, I have begun to show appreciation for everything that I have been blessed with. Afterall, it could have been worse, but it isn’t!
