How do you want to live your life?

What we are thankful for?

on January 8, 2013

I read this just the other day and only found some time today to post this. I was very taken aback and got quite scared actually after seeing it, please take some time to think about this:

‘What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday’ – Author unknown.

Ha! I bet this thought never crossed your mind! I didn’t think like that either. And all of a sudden when one is faced with such an ultimate statement, it does make you think, doesn’t it? Really scares me because we think that we do not take what we have for granted but in reality we do. We are not thankful often enough for what we have. The first thought I had after I read this quote was: “Geez… I would have been left with nothing because I wasn’t thankful for anything yesterday!!” The day just went by as per usual! Despite all my awareness about the happenings around me, I also fall prey to taking the people and things around me for granted. It does take a lot of effort to remember that what we have in our lives are so very special, and we must cherish what we have!

I do not see the need for me to ramble on about this post because I would rather you spend more time doing nice things for those you love, be it writing a note or giving a hug. There is no need to wait for a special occasion because they deserve all the love and attention we can give! So, start thinking about all the people and things that you are thankful of today!
