Count Your Blessings and Be Happy

How many of us see only the good things in our everyday existence? Or do you prefer to mind those nasty situations that trace deep lines on your forehead? What if I tell you that looking only for good things and listing them down in your Gratitude Journal will help you attract positive situations in your life? Better not argue on this. The Secret Teachers unanimously tell that what you always think about expands, to the point of attracting situations similar to what occupies your mind all the time. If your mind is focused on good thoughts such as love, harmony, peace, abundance - this is the kind of life you will definitely experience. But then, when you are always contemplating on sadness, grief, anger, greed, lack - your life will eventually be miserable.

So, how to keep those unhealthy thoughts from your mind? At the end of the day, list down all the things that you are grateful for. Surely, you will pick out those things that made you happy and jump with joy. You can start with five things to be thankful for. At first, you may feel at a lost, that is because you only want to recognize big things or happenings in your daily life. This Gratitude Journal is not for everyone to see. It is between you and God. No matter how small or mundane that happening is, you have a reason why it should be recognized. As you focus on the good things in your life, more of the same situations will come to you. Those five things that you enter each night in your Gratitude Journal, will soon double, triple, making you always focused on the positive side of life.

Happiness cannot be far behind, true happiness that is, as you constantly mind the most trivial things such as water, soft pillow, good sleep and sunlight. They contribute to your happiness because they make your life easier and manageable. As you become more and more happy and seem contented with the small things in life, you attract positive energy which will bring bigger, better things in your life. What more, what you always desire in life will be drawn to you once you fill your being with positive energy. See, you do not have to spend a single centavo to get what you want. All you have to do is count your blessings and be happy.
