Let’s be aggressively thankful today! When it comes to living, do you take things for granted or take them with gratitude? Count God’s blessings, don’t discount them. Thanksgiving is the attitude of a productive life. No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks. How long has it been since you’ve thanked those closest to you? The person who isn’t thankful for what he’s got isn’t likely to be thankful for what he’s going to get.
Ingratitude never ends believe me. People who forget or never learn the language of gratitude will never find themselves on speaking terms with happiness. Thanksgiving, you will find, creates power in your life because it opens the generators of your heart to respond gratefully, to receive joyfully, and to react creatively.
Count your blessings at every opportunity. Take some time today to reflect on all you have. The words think and thank come from the same Latin root. If we take time to think more, we will undoubtedly thank more. Know that you are blessed. If you can’t be satisfied with what you’ve reached, be thankful for what you’ve escaped. We all have a lot for which to be thankful for.
Let me ask you, no matter what house you live in, wouldn’t you rather be there than the best hospital in your city? Don’t be a person who has a highly developed instinct for being unhappy. Instead, be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble, and prayerful always. The best rule is: Whatever you are given, gratefully receive it. When you spend your time thanking others for the good things, there won’t be any time left to complain about the bad.
Find fifty things to be thankful for today. As you do, creative ideas will spring forth as a result of the mental conversation you are having with yourself. One of the best ways to generate momentum and opportunities is to sit down and write a thank you note to people who have influenced your life.
Thankful words don’t cost much, yet they accomplish more than can be perceived!
