The Power of Gratitude

Last Update: December 14, 2018

Hello beautiful friends.

It has been a while since I wrote a blog and I am happy to be here again.

BYW, the photo on this blog. is a photo I took last weekend at my favorite park in Tokyo (Shinjuku Park). It's autumn season now in Japan. One of the most beautiful season of the year.

Today I would like to share my thoughts about a very important thing that has been my anchor and helped me be grounded whenever my thoughts start to drift toward the negative; which is Gratitude. The other thing is Love

Gratitude is like an elixir that costs nothing and requires very little effort and would make you happier, healthier, more optimistic and more productive, .

I start my day by practicing gratitude and it makes me feel good.

Gratitude attracts what we want.

We know that according to the universal law of attraction we will attract into our life the things we think about and we focus on. This is even more appropriate for things we are thankful for.

When we are intentionally aware of our blessings, and are grateful for them, we are focusing more clearly on what we want in your life and therefore attracting more of those things into our lives.

Gratitude improves relationships.

We know that saying "thank you" is "good manners" we learned from our parents in our childhoods. This manner is very powerful.

We feel good when we are most appreciated and it’s the same when we show our gratitude to other people for their contributions, their talents and their actions - and make sure we let them know how we feel.

Gratitude reduces negativity.

It is hard to be negative when we feel gratitude about any situation and think about things for which you we thankful for. One of the fastest ways to get out of depression is to count our blessings.

Gratitude improves problem solving skills.

When we have a problem we focus on the barriers on the way at we put our effort to fix it, but when we think about what we are grateful for we open our minds to new possibilities and connections We also tackle the problem with a perspective of improvement and opportunity rather than the challenge or the issue.

Gratitude helps us learn.

Being grateful for our situation even if we don’t like it allows us to be thankful for the opportunity to learn something new.

So now you may be thinking how can I be more often gratefull

It's really very easy.

Here are some ideas

1. Make a list of your blessings.

These things can be big things like your family, your job, your health or little think like when someone held the door open for you this morning. You can do it mentally but it is better if you write them down

2. Read your list and allow yourself to feel good about everything you wrote down.

3. If there is a person in your list you can thank or show your appreciation to, do that now

Love and Bliss

Shinjuku Park is very beautiful especially in Autumn and Spring time. It's right in the middle of Tokyo near the busiest area.
A heaven of peace.
I hope one day you will have the chance to visit

Thank you Adel for a great post. I would like to add one more thing to your post. Gratitude is much more than something you say, gratitude is something you do and show. I can tell you 100 times how grateful I am but unless I show you then it means nothing. The best way to show how grateful you are or I am is to pay it forward. Have a wonderful day.
