Be Grateful

By: Mountain Valley Spring

Life can be difficult at times and every person has those moments where they feel down. That is simply being human and no one can escape it. In those moments, it is imperative that you get back to the source of what makes you happy. Decrease the mental clutter and get centered around the things that really matter to you.

For some people that centering factor is yoga or meditation, for others it is family or spirituality. Whatever it is, figure out how to get there. The fact is, even the person who leads the most charmed life will face a struggle or two. As people, we have to learn to be grateful in the good times and the bad. There is something that can be gained in each.

If you don’t think you have anything to be grateful for, you’re most likely incorrect. 

Take a quick inventory of your life and you will surely find at least one positive thing. Sometimes the simple things in life like waking up in the morning, having friends, nature, sunlight, a roof over your head, a job, good health, clean water and food to eat get taken for granted. These are all things to be grateful for.
No matter how dire or great your circumstances, there is someone who has had it worse and had it better. The key is to getting through the dire situation is to be grateful for the lesson you learned while enduring.
