Let us get in the habit of being grateful, especially if we are struggling and experiencing lack peace of mind.  It is even more important to do so if it is a challenging time and it is hard for us to notice our blessings. Let us learn from the following view and opinion inspired by the writings of Eileen Anglin.

When you are grateful for your struggles, they become your invincible unique strength.

When we are grateful it opens all our energy systems and allows positive energy to come into them. It opens the DNA and allows healing and blessings to occur. Whenever we feel that we are stuck, when we lack peace of mind, which means that the infinite source of divine flow of abundance and prosperity is not flowing to us, it is time to check ourselves whether we are in gratitude.

But how do we do that when we donít feel very grateful?  Being in gratitude for me, is stopping in that moment, taking in a deep breath and giving thanks to something in my life that I have, that I am blessed and grateful for. I know that for some people, it can be hard to see the good in life when it is not going well for them.  I have learned to be grateful for the most basic thing even if all I can muster is being alive. I just start there.

Happiness isn't about getting what you want all the time. It's about loving what you have and being grateful for it.

We have so many things of beauty around us to be thankful for: someoneís smile, a bird, a tree in the wind, to mention a few. If we are able to access the Internet in some way, there are many who donít have that luxury because of extreme poverty or they live in a country that does not have it, nor allow it. Give thanks for that blessing.

I have learned to start small if I have to, but every day, I give thanks for something. I always remind myself everyday to go into a moment of gratitude. I have changed my life by doing so. It allows me to shift my perspective for one thing. It immediately lifts my vibratory level and it also creates this divine transformation where all our energy systems, including our DNA open up. It opens up to Godís unlimited source of love and blessings and allows it to move into us.

By going into gratitude, we allow it to access, to infuse everything we are. We give the source of all good things to send more good things into us and our life. Let us think of it like a flower opening up to the sun and that sun is Godís unlimited source. It is opening up for the energy of that sun to infuse it with what it needs to grow. It takes in what it needs to become healthy and vibrant and reach a new level of its being. If we would like to shift our perspective and bring more blessings into our life, then let us right now, go into gratitude.

Let us take in a deep breath and think of the first thing that comes to mind that we are blessed and grateful to have; say a silent prayer or word of thanks to God and Godís angels for this blessing;  breathe in that moment of gratitude into our heart and just allow ourselves to rest in it for a moment. How beautiful that the Divine Realms will be receiving our gratitude at the same time everyday! Let us walk in grace and may peace and fulfillment be on our path

Every moment in life has a purpose, and the path we will only take us to our destination if we learn how to find the good in the bad. This is why it is important to be thankful for things that seem bad, because, in the end, hardship is the only way we grow.
