Be Grateful

Be Grateful

Your best weapon against depression, stress, anxiety and all things associated with these elements, is being grateful. Be grateful for the things you have. Repeat them to yourself when you wake up, and before you go to bed. Whenever you are feeling overwhelmed, remember these things. Don’t just say them, believe them.

I am grateful for:

  • I am grateful for my friends
  • I am grateful for my family
  • I am grateful for my girlfriend, the love we share and the relationship we have. For all the smiles and laughs, the hugs and kisses. For all changes and improvements we’re making
  • I am grateful for the roof over my head, the place that I live, the amenities it offers, the bed I sleep in, the computer I write from, my refrigerator and the food it stores for me.
  • I am grateful for my dog, and the excitement she brings to go on walks and play ball
  • I am grateful to have a car – no matter how much it costs me 😉
  • I am grateful for the opportunities that lie before me
  • I am grateful to be able to pursue my dreams
  • I am grateful for the books I have, and all that they teach me
  • I am grateful for my new passion and pursuit of meditation, and all that it has given me
  • I am grateful for my level of awareness
  • I am grateful for my abundance
  • I am grateful for my love and appreciation of nature and the universe
  • I am grateful for the love I have from so many people and animals
  • I am grateful to be alive, in this world, in this galaxy, in this universe
  • I am grateful for all the things that I have, and all that I love

Saying these things, (more importantly believing these things) makes me happy. My troubles disappear. My worries and stress lessened. My head clear and calm.

I truly believe this approach can work for anyone, and I hope that people give it a try. They say that once one person does something, that others around them instantly have the ability to do the same. Maybe it’s already happening…I hope so.

I would love to hear your thoughts
