A Grateful Mind

Face Soul Head Smoke Light Sad Thoughts Mi

There is one sure fire medicine that cures all difficulty and opens the way for your greatest good. It allows you to sleep well at night, wake up refreshed and filled with enthusiasm. Obstacles evaporate and wonderful possibilities appear. This medicine is abundantly available, has no side effects, can be taken in large or small doses regularly. You will need no one to prescribe it and the more you take, the sweeter it is. The medicine is a good dose of gratitude, taken daily, at least three times a day.

For example, if you’re experiencing trouble in your relationships, a strong dose of gratitude will help a lot. Depression and thankfulness cannot exist in the same mind at exactly the same time. When you are continually conscious of the good you are getting, complaints, resentments and needs become a thing of the past.

Some might say that this world is like a feast where we’re guests. But, instead of thoroughly enjoying the feast, we only focus upon what’s wrong – we become mad that the meal will not continue forever, criticize the cook, demand one dish and deny all others, or enjoy just desert.

Some refuse to eat the meal entirely and go to the corner to pout. Most have no idea who their host is, or why they have even been invited. They rarely consider offering thanks.

So as to live with joy and well-being, however, it’s crucial to come up with a grateful mind. Here are some simple steps to take.

Realize that we’ve been invited to this banquet to develop a grateful mind. We must learn to partake of all we are offered, discover why we’ve been invited, and most importantly, offer thanks.

Step 2: Realize Every Person At The Banquet Is Precious

Each person at this feast is precious and has been invited for a reason. There is something unique that each guest must bring, including you. Find out what it is. Enjoy each person fully.

If you don’t know what to be thankful for, the question to ask is – what am I focusing on right now? Where is my focus?
Are you focusing upon all the problems and complaints, or are you aware of the endless gifts you receive? By taking your focus off the negative aspects of the connection, you take energy and power away from these complaints and become open to see the good that available. As you take control of your attention you take charge of your life.

Step 3: Take Time To Notice And Appreciate What You Are Receiving

Take the time to detect and fully appreciate what is before you. Stop taking life for granted. As we create a mind that is aware of the gifts it is receiving, the capacity to return grows naturally.

So many relationships flounder as a result of the feeling that individuals are not getting what they want. Oftentimes their partners don’t have any clue what this is, or how to make them happy.

A wonderful way to manage this is to ask directly for what you want. Ask without criticism or a hidden requirement. Additionally it is crucial to have the ability to say no. Saying no isn’t rejection. Occasionally, saying no to others, is a method of saying yes to yourself.

Step 5:

When you give to get something in return, this isn’t true giving. Some give to hold onto others, or to feel good about themselves. True giving asks nothing in return. It gives publicly, no strings attached.

When we give fully without wanting anything in return, we receive as much as we give. Burden, bitterness and clinging falls away. There is no giver or receiver here, only an open heart. Don’t let Raccoon Feces ruin your good vibes.
