A thankful heart as one awakens each day full of appreciation of what is available.
As to the blessings ever present, one can focus on what one has, instead of what one doesn't have.

As one opens ones eyes, ones perceptions are what causes one to see the truth or the untruth.

At times one is so upset with life, so discouraged with an outcome, so rejected by a loved one,
that one is forgetful of the abundance of blessings already here.

We can say that we are blinded by darkness. Our whole being is wrapped up by an aura of darkness
prohibiting us from seeing the present.

What to do?

If we would only take time out to be honest with ourselves.
If we would only take time out to be sincere with our blessings.
If we would only take time out to take off the blind folds.

Then we would connect to the realization within which says, Thank you God, my Creator for all that I am , all that I have and all that I can share. I can see how I am blessed in so many ways and I am grateful.

This state of appreciation will open up our hearts to the God within, our True Selves where Peace, Joy and Love simply are. We don't have to go anywhere special to tap into these states. We are one with these states of Being.

So today I encourage you to take time to declare to yourself either by writing or speaking out loud all that you are grateful for.

Do it and reap the benefit of your own free will.
Do it because you are worth it. Amen.
