23 days to Christmas – Day 2- Be thankful

Be thankful

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Gratitude in simple words is just a Thank you – however, if we delve a little more, this simple word has a deep and powerful meaning

Gratitude is an emotion similar to appreciation that most people are familiar with. What many people do not know is that gratitude plays an important role in several historical movements and that gratitude is now becoming an important part of psychology research

Most of us are blessed with so many things which we never asked for – a house to live in, a family to feel loved and cared for, good clothes to wear, a comfortable bed to sleep in, the beauty of having friends, the list is endless.

Have we ever paused to express gratitude for this and so much more – it is easy – simply write the things you are grateful for in your gratitude journal

today the UAE celebrates its 47th National day and I living here as an expatriate along with the 190+ nationalities feel blessed and thankful to the leaders of this land who have given us much more than we could ever ask for

God bless our leaders and thank you to the heavens above for the avalanche of blessings coming my way and grateful for the blessings I have received
