The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. ~ Oprah Winfrey ~
It’s time to find joy in the small things in life. It’s time to appreciate simple pleasures and things that we previously took for granted. There are so many people worse off than we are, who don’t have much in the way of food, shelter or clothing, who don’t have any of the extras in life that we take for granted. We can start by waking up every day and expressing what we are grateful for. Life is better if we develop an attitude of gratitude and celebration.
When we face difficulty, we should realize that every difficulty carries within it the seeds of an equal or greater benefit. It’s an opportunity to grow, to learn, to get better at something. It will transform us from a complainer into a positive person who only continues to improve. Every day won’t be perfect, but focusing on what we are grateful for tends to wash away feelings of anger and negativity.
Celebrating your life and all that’s in it, opens the way for more. First thing every morning, while your head is still on the pillow, take just a few minutes to think of all the things for which you are appreciative, even if it’s just the fact that you are in a warm bed with a roof over your head and thank God for another new day.
Because I believe in God and in Jesus, trouble leaves my heart. ~ John 14:1
