Yesterday I wrote about thinking and actions. I would like to expand on that just a little. Here is a statement that I get in my IGoogle apps: "Why do you worry? I wait to give you all that is lovely. I can only bless glad thankful hearts."
Gratitude is such a huge unappreciated and unexpressed emotion. In learning and growing we must have gratitude for the lesson we have been challenged with. Why? Because they are presented to us as a learning experience; just like taking a math class; each lesson builds onto the next lesson. When we are able to look back and say I remember doing this and this is what happened, that is a lesson. You learn to not do the same thing over.
Do you ever look back at a certain teacher in your life and remember their influence they had on you? Was there something they taught or said to you that has stuck throughout the years?
Our life is a journey; when we appreciate the values that we have acquired and the beauty that we enjoyed we are given gifts. As we grow and develop more skills in our lives use them as a learning experience and share with others.
Sometimes we have to be taken down to our knees before we are able to acknowledge that we need to make changes. No matter how hard they are, it is a reality. The important step here is not to give up, or give in to your circumstance but, to learn from it and grow. Do not end up in the street because you gave up. Pick yourself up by the boot straps and be determined to continue on and achieve. Do not weaken and turn to drugs or alcohol, those only make things worse and limit who you are inside. We all have pumps, boulders and crevices in our journey we need to learn how to get around them.
So be grateful for what you have today, no matter how small you may think it is. Be grateful that you have been shown a new and different way and always remember that we all have something wonderful to offer the world. We just need to look within.
