There are people among us who maintain their optimism even though they may be going through challenging times. People who continue to offer their care to others, although their situation may not be rosy. People who look you in the eye, smile at you and ask if they may be of help. Some people are successful - not necessarily because they are at ease financially or because they have everything in life - but because they live in the now and are grateful and happy with what they have. These are the people who know what their priorities are; who wake up in the morning and are thankful simply because they are healthy. They are grateful to have a roof over their head. They are grateful to have even one friend. They are grateful to see each day as a new beginning.
Here's a question for you: How do you start your day? Do you tend to think about what you have or about what you don't have? It's a good test to take for yourself. Do the test for a week and then add your pluses and minuses. Even if the scale tilts towards what you have (although it usually tilts towards what you don't have), start making your own 'List of Abundance.' Record everything you own; however big or small, material or non-material. Keep adding and watch your list grow day by day. Read your 'List of Abundance' every night before going to bed; every morning when you wake up, even during the day, if you want. Keep adding to it–there's so much more–and watch your life transform step by step. ❤️
