We always have two Choices – To Be Grateful for what we have or To Be always Demanding more and more and get more Stressed!
Below is a story I came across recently to highlight this more clearly.
A 73 year old man in Italy recovered in a hospital from an illness. He was told to pay for the ventilator for one day and the old man started crying.
The doctor advised him not to cry over the bill and that the hospital would manage it. But what the old man said made all the doctors emotional.
“I am not crying because of the money I have to pay. I can pay the money. I am crying because I have been breathing God’s air for
73 years and I have never paid for it. Now it takes 5000 Euros to use a ventilator for one day. Do you know how much I owe God? I didn’t thank God enough before”.
His words are really worth reflection. When we breathe air freely without any pain – we do not take the air seriously. It is only when we enter the hospital do we realise that breathing Oxygen is essential to human life.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look – at change.
Gratitude is a powerful and empowering emotion. Sometimes we need to bring more awareness and be more Grateful for the simple gifts of life.
Gratitude supports our immune system – it makes us strong. Stress makes us weak.
“Thank you” is the best Prayer you can say all day.
A Law of the Universe says that when you are grateful for things you have in life, you will have more things to be grateful for.
So never let the 10th Apple Effect (more about this tomorrow) allow you to take the gifts of life for granted. As you begin to be grateful for what most people take for granted, the vibration of gratitude makes you more receptive to more good in your life.
Never let Gratitude for Life fade away and stay blessed forever.
