Gratitude for the Little Things

The things that you take for granted someone else is praying for

In the hustle bustle of 21st century living we sometimes neglect certain things and take them for granted. We have super computers in the palm of our hands, endless streams of information at our fingertips and luxuries of our day to day that one hundred years ago wouldn’t even be imaginable. The speed at which we move today in business and life is incredible. We have become accustomed to this fever pace and sometimes we forget how much we have to be grateful for.

Just take a look at the house or apartment in which you are living. There are countless things throughout that you are so accustomed to that you barely even take a moment to appreciate. At the flick of a switch you are given light to the darkest of rooms. A kitchen full of appliances that make cooking a breeze. With the turn of a handle you have water at your disposal for several purposes of day to day living. A push of a button and you have seemingly endless streams of entertainment and information on what is going on throughout the world. Countless machines that make living on a daily basis much easier with each serving a specific purpose. A car that allows you to go to any destination with ease, giving you the freedom to travel miles in a relatively short period of time. These are just a small portion of things in our daily lives that makes life that much easier to live. All of us are truly blessed to have these things.

Since so many things have been ingrained into society in such a perceivably effortless fashion we often have an expectation that they will always be in our lives. In a way we take these little luxuries for granted. Others would be incredibly grateful to have these “luxuries” in their lives. We should all take a moment to be grateful for the little things in our day to day lives because others would do anything to have these little things. There is always things to be grateful for, no matter how minuscule they may seem in the grand picture of our lives. Do me a small favor find 10 things to be grateful for that you may be taking for granted.

Now for those who may not have what you want in life, whether it be a home of your own, the job of your dreams or anything else you feel is lacking in your life. Be grateful for the things that you currently have. Gratitude is a mindset of abundance, because even if we perceive that we don’t have much, in reality we still have something to be thankful for. No matter how small it is. You have your mind and that alone is something to be incredibly grateful for. You are alive and that is a blessing to this earth. Small gratitude’s in our lives allow us to see how truly beautiful life really is.
