Are You Grateful? Here Are 8 Reasons Why Your Should Be!

The essence of gratefulness shows up in our everyday lives.  Gratefulness rewards us when we least expect it.  So does ungratefulness! The law of reaping and sowing goes both ways.  How then do we maintain an attitude of gratitude as it has been coined, when we get hit hard with life’s issues? 

Grateful?  For What?  Yes, I have asked that a few times in the last few weeks myself, then suddenly I am reminded of the many things that have come my way quite unexpectedly.  The person who was sent just in time, the money that came when I was 0, or the healing I got for my loved ones.

Grateful? For What? The reasons success is relevant in my life…the definition of what I call success that is. When I feel less than successful whatever that means to me; is when I feel less than grateful! Yeah, direct correlation! Funny isn’t it?  Sowing and reaping works together as gratefulness activates the tangibles in my life and yours.  It’s all how we perceive it.  I have chosen to lose nothing by being grateful.  In doing so I can only gain!
