After making the effort to post 30 days of blessings, I can appreciate my life all the more. Being grateful encourages a passion for living, a positive outlook and a motivation to look for the "good" in life.
I enjoyed this task. Once I dedicated some time to thinking of a concept for which I am grateful, ideas abounded. And then I realized that everything I was grateful for, was simply variations on a single theme. I am grateful for life, for being loved by my family and friends and being fortunate enough to have them in my life.
As I took the time to acknowledge my loved ones, I was able to appreciate how much of my life has been influenced and enriched by them.
Because of these blessings, I am also able to see how my life is made better by the goodness of others. Small blessings, from a helpful person to larger actions, like an act of kindness help me to feel proud, welcomed and loved.
