Have an attitude of gratitude….
What is that bothering you ?
We are human beings.Most of us lead a so called ‘busy life’.Many claim so.
Once you are 18 + your responsibilities increase and before you realize,you have a family adding to your burden.
You are stuck with your work or go on changing the jobs,and you are ever busy chasing money and in the process make heavy losses instead of becoming rich.
Now you start comparing yourself with others whom you feel, leading a better life than yours, inspite of you better qualified.
At one stage with all the disappointments and dissatisfaction abound,you become dejected,sometimes depressed even violent,cursing yourself and rest of the others and now it’s the time for you to start the blame games.
Since you are a God fearing person you start looking up for help from the Heaven.
You become angry soon because you wished a quick fix because you are sincerely praying,but strangely remembering Him only during times you are in crisis.
By now you are getting agitated and annoyed because God is taking His own time,even testing your patience.
You begin to feel that He not listening to you and you start wondering whether His presence is real and wondering whether to continue to pray thinking Almighty wasting your time ! !
You start Doubting His credentials.
Why you feel God never answers your prayers ?
You are too distracted.
Now What ?
My friend,there is no need to lead this kind of wretched life.
This is not what life offers you.
Unknown to you,God has already given you His choicest blessings since you are His creation.
There are hundreds of special moments happening in your life to celebrate rather than to criticize.
Although you may feel nothing great happening ,remember you are always blessed by Him.You are much better off than the most of the people.
You may not be rich,but you have a loving family,good friends and most importantly your basic needs are met.What else you need ?
A young woman was sitting at her dining table,worried about taxes to be paid,housework to be done and to top it all her extended family was coming over for festival lunch the next day.
She was not feeling very thankful at that time.
As she turned her gaze sideways,she noticed her young daughter scribbling furiously into her notebook.
“My teacher asked us to write a paragraph on ‘negative thanks giving’ for homework today” said the daughter.”She asked us to write down things we are thankful for,things that make us feel not so good in the beginning,but turn out to be good after all”
With curiosity,the mother peeked into the book.This is what her daughter wrote.
” I am thankful for the final exams,because that means school is almost over.I am thankful for bad tasting medicine,because it helps me to feel better.I am thankful for walking up to the alarm clock,because it means I am still alive”.
It then dawned on the mother that she had lot of things to be thankful for ! She thought again……
She had to pay taxes but that meant she was fortunate to be employed.
She had housework to do but that meant she had a shelter to live in.
She had to cook for her many family members for lunch but that meant she had a family with whom she could celebrate.
We generally complain about negative things in life but we fail to look at the positive side of it.What is the positive in your negative ? Look at the better part of life and make your everyday a great day. source,TOI,speakingtree
Any lessons ?
How many times you counted your blessings ?
I doubt.All the time you are busy complaining and pleading with the Almighty.
Don’t think of the things you didn’t get after praying.Think of countless blessings God gave you without asking unknown
“The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles” Unknown
That one day we all remember to thank God is on ‘Thanks giving day”,for the good things that have happened or happening.
Surprisingly people remember this day for the delicious food.I may be wrong and you can correct me.
Please share your thoughts.I appreciate.
Thank you.Namaste 🙏🏻
