Not a long time ago I had a conversation with Hulk about how people faces look like while commuting to work. He said, “They look miserable, like they just took a mortgage of their house”. “Maybe they did”, I told him. He replied that he wouldn’t mind paying for the loan since it would mean that he owned a house.
How true. At times we forget to be happy even though we have more than enough reasons to be happy compare to the things to be unhappy about.
I have been reminding myself to be grateful for what I have and receive, which should be easy, but it didn’t and still doesn’t come naturally, like now when I got reminded of two weeks worth of laundry waiting for me at home.
If you read my previous entries, you might have noticed that last week my Weekly Wish (another link up, yes, I am all about linking-up these days) was to be grateful. My plan was to write four things I am grateful about every day for a week. I have done it for ten days now. At times I experience something nice, instead of not giving attention to it or taking it for granted, I try to remember about it so I can write it down before going to sleep at night. When I make these “mental notes” is when I get reminded how fun my life is.
I want to adopt this gratitude habit/trait/attitude as I think it’s one of the recipe to make us happy and I am all for making me happy.
Okay, I will stop here before this post starts to read like a page torn from a self-help book.
Before i go, here are a few of my last week Weekly Wish’s entries:
The small list of people that I really really like and love Polished off Oreo Cheesecake, Strawberry Cheesecake and Blueberry Cheesecake on separate occasions in the name of birthday although none of three was eaten on the day itself
My new messy hairstyle, it’s more me than the me before this BFF flew down to our hometown to give a surprise on my birthday. I have always enjoyed her homemade gifts but by far this was the best gift ever!!! This blog, it makes me happy Hello Kitty balloon.
How about you? How are you being grateful? Writing things down similar to what I am doing? Praying? Thanking people? Share with me.
Thanks for reading. I am grateful for you. Also this is my first GRAD-ITUDE link up, so YAY!!
