Do you realize how much good we have in our lives?
Yes, life is hard.
Yes, we are dealing with a lot of crap in this world.
But, no matter how hard it is, we have SO much to be grateful for.
There is so much good in the world.
There is so much beauty in the world.
As I previously mentioned, keeping a gratitude journal helps us see the daily miracles happening around us.
I don’t need an oxygen tank.
I have two eyes that both see.
I can see color with my eyes. I am not color blind.
I have two ears.
I don’t need hearing aids.
I have a nose that can smell.
My face looks good.
My back doesn’t hurt me.
I have five fingers on each hand.
When I move my fingers they don’t hurt me.
I have ten toes on my feet.
My ankles and knees don’t hurt.
I can walk on my own. I don’t need a wheelchair or cane.
My lungs are working.
My heart is pumping.
I can eat many different kinds of food.
I don’t need daily medication.
I don’t have any chronic illness or pain.
These are just some of the things you can be grateful for about your body and your health.
Now take this list and focus in on your spouse/child/family members, too.
There is so much we can be grateful about.
