Let’s face it.You can’t have everything at the same time. It’s physically impossible and extremely improbable. Everybody has gone through this before: being so overwhelmed with the amount of things that we cannot do or cannot have, letting it frustrate you. And, with no exception, the instant you start to think about those things, you start to lose your energy (have you ever felt this before?).The pencil that you’ll hold while you write your storyThis energy is essential to everything that you do. It’s what gives you purpose, what makes you an actor and not a reactor. It’s the pencil that you’ll hold while you write your story. Without it, there’s no story to write. Without it, you’ll only be a spectator waiting for a “better time” to come. Practicing gratitude can bring that energy back into your life. Only when you get your heart involved (and not only your mind) that you’ll really manage to make a change. It’s not a very easy thing to do, turning gratitude into a habit. But, once you establish it, there’s no turning back. Once you release what’s holding you back, you will be able to focus on what’s really important to you. Just to get your brain working a little, we made a list of examples you could be grateful for: Your educationBeing able to help other peopleYour favorite author’s booksThe feeling of laying in your bed after a busy dayYour familyBeing able to taste your favourite foodYour healthThe possibility of changeYour friendsThe sound of birds singing outside your windowYour dogThe first coffee in the morning Your favourite band’s existenceNew beginningsThe impact you have on other people’s livesOf course these are only some examples – the possibilities are infinite. Try to make it a habit and think about the things you hold gratitude for every single day in order to improve your life quality. So that leaves us for a question: what are you thankful for today?
