I have done a lot of thinking today about how much my life has changed in the past few months and how much it has even changed just over the course of the week. A week ago I was stressed and financially insecure and I was extremely worried about my employment opportunities. Fast forward to this week and I am about to leave a job that was causing me so much grief and take up a full time opportunity at a job that I love.
All of this got me thinking that we really need to appreciate life in the moment, often we are so busy thinking about our next step we forget to appreciate the steps we have already taken and the step we are standing on. Once we get that job promotion we have been longing for we often look for how we can get the next one; without fully being appreciative and grateful for the promotion we have already been given. That is why I am now going to start been a lot more grateful in my life for what I have. Because if I am not happy now it doesn’t matter were I travel to or where I go I will never be happy because I will always be looking for more.
One way to completely transform your life isn’t really to do with some drastic like moving countries or changing a job sometimes it is all about a change in mindset. This will inevitably will attract more positive things into your life and essentially give you the life you dream of. It all starts with the mindset.
This is why, I have practiced having a much more grateful heart one that no matter how crap or how awesome my day is I will always find something to be grateful about. No matter how small it could simply be, I am grateful that I was able to put food on the table tonight or you were able to call your mum to tell her you love her. It is all about rewiring your brain from focusing on the negatives to focusing on the positives.
So I encourage everyone, whether that be at the beginning of the day or the end of the day write down three things you are grateful for in your life. I promise it will transform how you see the world. Always be kind to others and be grateful for what you have.
