Sharing a Poem on Gratitude

Be thankful!
Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.

It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

    If I may humbly add:

    Be thankful for the heartbreaks,
    because they provide the contrast
    with which to better appreciate
    your next soulmate.

  2. Thanks for the reminder Lia 💜 so often I am only grateful for the good times I forget that hard times are opportunities to grow, learn and become stronger. I realize that those challenging moments have taught me to appreciate all the good stuff I may have taken for granted.
