Throughout life it is extremely important to remain grateful. Be grateful for new experiences, uncomfortable situations, disappointments, and achievements. Instead of counting the things that are missing in your life, count the blessings that you may tend to look over each day.
Whenever you need a reminder, remember to look around you and to be grateful for the things that you do have. Count the blessings that have occurred in your life instead of the problems. Be grateful for friends, family, running water, and the food that you consume each day.
Master consistency throughout your day and remind yourself of the simple things that you have been blessed with.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that in order to achieve contentment, one should “cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously.”
