Remembering to be Grateful

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterGoogle+Pin on PinterestEmail to someone

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:

I have always enjoyed her homemade gifts but by far this was the best gift ever!!! CSTEP_Valentine-Heart-Circle-1 This blog, it makes me happy CSTEP_Valentine-Heart-Circle-1 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!!

  • I’m soooo sorry I’m so late getting to this post, but thank you SO much for participating in GRAD-ITUDE 101! And I totally agree — I think it can make us a lot happier and really focus on what we already have! I like your list of things you’re grateful for and it sounds like the practice of keeping a list at the end of the day has you thinking of gratitude throughout the day — which is so awesome. Pretty soon it’ll be a habit and it’ll be totally natural to focus on all of the small things that give you joy. How cool is that?
