we tend to focus on what we don’t have
which deprives us of our ability to enjoy the things we do have.
But a shift in perspective can change everything.
It wasn’t until I began visiting developing countries that I realized that
WE HAVE NO CLUE
how much we have to be thankful for and happy about.
I’ve connected with a number of people abroad
Who struggle to meet their basic needs
and seem to enjoy life
much more than the average American.
Because they CHOOSE to
focus on the things that they have
rather than focusing on what is lacking.
Simple things like:
Food (beans, rice & bread)
Running water (mostly cold, contaminated and only available certain times of day)
Friends & Family
These are all things that seem to bring them true happiness.
Just like them, WE HAVE A CHOICE
to find happiness in the little things.
Although our lives aren’t filled with everything we’ve ever wished for
they are filled with things that we’re glad that we don’t have to live without.
LET’S SHIFT OUR FOCUS
to being thankful for things that we take for granted
so that we can reap the benefits of enjoying life more often.
Start shifting your focus
by paying more attention to
your answers to the following questions:
Who are you thankful for? How will you show them?
What are 3 things you take for granted? How will you start showing appreciation for them?
What are you most grateful for & how will you better enjoy it?
What’s something that you are glad that you don’t have to live without?
