It seems so simple right. Just be thankful and the world will give you more of what you want. If it were so simple, why are so many people walking around complaining about everything. Why aren’t more people just happy to have a roof over their head, food to eat, a warm and soft place to sleep, and the people they love standing close to them. We have more than what we need, so why is it so hard to stay in a space of gratitude? What is it that keeps us from being happy with all that we have? What stops us from being thankful for the gifts that other people in the world could only dream of?
Is it the need to impress others? Are we trying to prove something to ourselves or have we just been conditioned over the last 100 years to never be satisfied with what we have?
It’s easy to want what other people have, it’s easy to always think it’s never enough, it’s easy to believe that once you have what you want you’ll be happy. But I don’t want to do what’s easy, because what comes easy doesn’t last, and easy doesn’t make you grow! I don’t want the easy ride, I want to work for it, every bit of it. I want to feel the pain, I want to know the truth, no matter how hard it hurts. I want it all, the blood, sweat and tears and instead of be consumed by it, I want turn it into something beautiful.
Because in the end, if you are not grateful for it all, then what was it all worth???
I hope you are grateful for everything, good and bad, because everything has a message to learn from. No matter how it comes to you, you have the power to turn it into something that could change your life. Be thankful for your struggles, because within them you’ll find your strength and within that strength you will inspire others to do the same!
I am thankful for you, I am thankful for all the clients that have turned to friends, and all the friends that have become my family. I am thankful for all the dreams that have become a reality.
And most of all, I am thankful for the gratitude in my heart that permeates my soul and the people I love.
Happy Thanksgiving all you beautiful people!!
