As December 25th approaches, it’s nearly time for us to unwind and enjoy a time of celebration. While the lead up to the event can be stressful, we often forget to appreciate and be grateful for all that we have.
Paying attention to the special things in life gives you the power to change your perspective and enhance your enjoyment over this festive season, so lets delve into the 10 things to be thankful for.
How many times have you dreaded going to an event way before it should even be on your agenda? Getting yourself flustered because deep down you don’t want to go. Maybe you’ll have to face people you don’t like, you know you need to watch your spending habits and you’d rather just simply stay indoors- But wait, you can’t let your “bestie” down right? and Aunt Sarah would be devastated if you didn’t show up, so its probably best to “show your face” even if it’s just for an hour. But WHY?
Have you ever been a victim of the worst cold? The type that causes your eyes to swell, your nose to block and even the loss of your sense of taste?
At a time like this you end up having no energy to function and you would do anything to kick start your recovery process. You long to regain your health again so that you can get back to normal and carry out the daily tasks that you usually take for granted.
Being able to see, smell, walk, talk and even breathe are often things that many of us forget to appreciate. It’s not a regular practice in this day and age to take the time to really stop and think about the things that we are already blessed with or have achieved.
A well lived life is one where gratitude and thankfulness play a MAJOR role. Gratitude not only emits happiness, but helps with the acceptance of where you are, so that you are able to move forward effectively and with increased productivity.
