Thankful!

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough

~Oprah Winfrey

A heart filled with gratitude attracts so much good. Let’s focus on the little things that makes life great, interesting and so precious.

Spend time with families, laugh your heart out at every tiny joke. Notice every moments, travel, enjoy different culture and cuisines😋.

Be content!!

Stay blessed.

Chichi.

    This is very true. I have discovered that dwelling on the things I don’t have or rather that I wish to have saps me of the energy that is needed to be happy. Being contented and thankful is very essential to a peaceful lifestyle.

    I totally agree! I am trying hard to practice gratitude more and complain less. If it’s good enough for Oprah, it’s good enough for me, LOL!

      True. I was a worry freak. Pondering over every little detail. We cannot control all, but only hope for the best. Life is too fragile. Let’s nurture it. Like you, I am trying to practice gratitude.

      I really appreciate your input. Thanks.😀

    What great advice. With the ever growing technology distraction, it’s always nice to take a step back, and admire what’s right in front of us. Spending time with our loved ones, and giving our absolute undivided attention.

      Thank you. You are right. Sometimes, the most important things are right in front of us. We take it for granted, while being distracted.
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    I love this short but very motivational post. It is just like a circle – what you give is what you will get. Focus on the positive and good things will come to you. A great reminder for us to always be thankful of the blessings we receive everyday. Even waking up in the morning is already a huge blessing in itself.

    I think being thankful is probably the best piece of advice anyone can take. I think everyone craves a content life and you can’t really find contentment if you are not thankful.

    Being thankful is one of the first steps to living a positive lifestyle and I think it’s really important to be thankful each day. It allows you to see the better side of life instead of focusing on all the challenges that you’re facing.
