Gratitude requires work
Gratitude is an important quality to develop in life. We should all learn to be thankful, show appreciation and be kind. However, sometimes gratitude is seen as a passive action. When things get hard – when life sucks – you should just be grateful for what you have.
Gratitude isn’t only about turning a blind eye to what you don’t like and accepting what you have. Gratitude is just as much about counting your opportunities to make change, as well as your blessings.
It’s about appreciating the fact you have a voice you can speak up with. And using it.
It’s about being thankful for your ability to make a different choice. And choosing to.
It’s about being grateful for having the chance to own your decisions. And doing it.
Gratitude allows us to see the good that we currently have in our lives, as well as the good we can achieve.
