Being thankful is good practice. Keeping your mind tuned in to all the things in daily life to be thankful for will change your perspective and give you a better attitude.
You might not like the job you go to each day, but it is paying your bills and allowing you to keep things that make your life comfortable and easier. You might not like going to the grocery store, but thank goodness we don’t have to hike miles to get there, or are required to grow our own food or make all of our own clothes and shoes.
Isn’t it nice to not have to go to the stream or to the well to pump water, then boil it to be able to bathe or cook? Isn’t it nice not to have to go find a bush or walk to the outhouse like our grandparents and their parents did? I am so thankful for indoor plumbing!
You might not like to read, but isn’t it nice to have so much information available just by typing a few words in a search engine like Google, Yahoo, or Bing? Isn’t it amazing that we have such extensive libraries where we can check out books that were written in places all over the world, and by authors both modern and from centuries past. What about e-books? Now there are so many books to choose from on just about any subject you can dream up, available with a click of your mouse.
You are no longer required to read in daylight or by candle light. Now you can read anytime the notion hits you. You can read on e-readers, your computer, your tablet or phone. It’s amazing the information that is so readily available in just about any form you can think of including audible books, CD’s and even cassette tapes.
While on the subject, it’s it terrific that we can write and publish at will now? What an amazing thing that we can write articles, protest, give opinions, or write blogs at will and about just about any subject!
I am thankful to be living here, right now at this time in history, because truly right now is a great time to be here.
