Gratefulness is not a feeling, it is a choice you make!

vvvvvvvvvvvvvv_1024x1024

Most of the times we find ourselves in situations that make us feel anything but thankful. We do have many reasons to feel sorry for ourselves, to be bitter, frustrated, envious, angry, ungrateful, sad and the list could go on. Life is not all rainbows and sweet stuff. It can get really tough sometimes and I get it. But where should we fix our focus?

Do you ever ask yourself why do we find it so easy to ignore all the good things that sorround us once something unpleasant comes along? Why do we give so much power to that problem and we choose to magnify it so much that it covers the blessings?

Gratefulness is not a feeling. It is a choice you make.

A choice to fix your focus on what you’ve got rather than on what is not. You will never be satisfied with your own life if you keep comparing yourself to the people that you consider superior to you. Quit looking for the things that you don’t have and be thankful for everything that is already in front of you.

They say that you find what you look for and this couldn’t be truer. If you keep looking for the negative things, because this is what you unconsciously do when you are ungrateful, you will find more and more reasons to feel that way. Whatever you’ve lost or you think you lack, if you choose to fix your focus on that, you’ll live in what you lost/lack. You have the ability to magnify whatever you want to magnify, so please, LOOK AT WHAT YOU’VE GOT!

You woke up today, you are healthy and your body functions perfectly. You are able to see the sun, the mountains, the beauty of the creation. You are so wonderfully created. You have food, clothes and a roof above your head. You have a loving family (yes, I know your parents might sometimes be annoying but some would give anything just to have them back by their side) and nice friends that care about you. Even if you would not have some of the things that I’ve mentioned, you can still be thankful. You just need to find your reasons for that. Every day, you are the one who chooses what to amplify. When you have one reason to be grateful and one that knocks you down, why choosing to see only the last one?

And there will always be more reasons to be grateful than ungrateful.

You have more than what you need, trust me. We could live with so much less but God gives us more, because He loves us so much and He likes to bless His children.

Let’s choose gratitude and contentment over bitterness or ungratefulness. And always keep that in mind:

to be thankful doesn't mean you have everything that you wish for but you choose to look at what you already have.

De foarte multe ori ne aflam in situatii in care sentimentul de multumire e atat de departe, aproape inexistent. Avem atatea motive sa fim frustrati, invidiosi, tristi, plini de ciuda si regret, sa simtim o gramada de emotii negative si lista poate continua la nesfarsit.Pana la urma viata nu e tot timpul roz. Si daca tot nu e, pe ce ar trebui sa ne focalizam atunci?

Te-ai intrebat vreodata de ce e asa usor sa pierdem din vedere tot ce e bun odata ce un lucru negativ isi face aparitia si le umbreste pe celelalte? De ce ne lasam asa impactati de o problema si alegem sa o exageram in asa fel incat eclipseaza binecuvantarile din viata noastra?

A fi multumitor e o decizie pe care o iei si nu un sentiment ce apare

Decizia de a te focusa pe ce ai deja decat pe ce nu ai.Niciodata nu vei fi satisfacut de viata ta si ceea ce ai daca compari cu ce altii pretind ca au, altii pe care tu ii consideri superiori.Inceteaza sa mai tanjesti dupa ce nu ai si incepe sa fii mutumitor pentru tot ceea ce e deja sub ochii tai.19_70e0a36b-457d-4bbe-8031-e9a3ec8eaa02_1024x1024

Se spune ca gasesti ceea ce cauti si cam asa este.Daca continui sa-ti atintesti privirea spre tot ce nu ai, pentru ca asta facem in mod inconstient atunci cand suntem nemultumitori, te vei adanci si mai mult in aceasta stare negativa.Orice ai pierdut sau crezi ca-ti lipseste va lua amploare in mintea si inima ta din cauza simplului fapt ca ai ales sa te focusezi pe acel lucru. Ai puterea sa alegi sa infloreasca in inima ta orice gand sau lucru pe care te concentrezi,asa ca te rog,ai grija ce lasi sa creasca si sa prinda radacini acolo. ALEGE SA PRIVESTI SPRE CE AI DEJA!

Azi te-ai trezit, esti sanatos, corpul tau fuctioneaza perfect. Poti sa te bucuri de soare, poti privi muntii si poti sa te bucuri de creatie. Ai ce sa mananci, cu ce sa te imbraci, un acoperis sub care sa stai. Ai o familie care te iubeste(si da,stiu ca parintii pot fi uneori enervanti,nu? Dar altii ar face orice sa ii mai enerveze parintii lor macar o data). Ai prieteni care sunt acolo pentru tine. Si chiar daca duci lipsa de unele de mai sus, tot poti sa fii multumitor! Trebuie doar sa alegi sa privesti spre binecuvantari. In fiecare zi, tu alegi ce sa te afecteze, ce sa lase un impact asupra ta. Daca ai un motiv pentru care sa fi mutumitor si unul care te doboara, de ce sa alegi sa te uiti la ultimul si sa te dobori singur?

Intotdeauna motivele pentru care sa fii multumitor vor cantari mai greu in fata celor care te doboara

Crede-ma ca ai mai mult decat ai nevoie. Se poate trai cu mai putin decat avem, dar Dumnezeu alege sa ne binecuvanteze din belsug tocmai pentru ca ne iubeste intr-un mod inexplicabil.

Hai sa alegem sa fim multumitori si impliniti, decat nerecunoscatori si acizi.

sa fii multumitor nu inseamna ca ai tot ce ti-ai dorit vreodata, dar ca alegi sa privesti si sa te bucuri de ceea ce ai deja.
