Priceless Moments

Gratitude. Gratitude. Gratitude.

When I hear the word Gratitude, I feel Blessed.

It doesn’t have to do with the material things I have, but the simple things that we take for granted each day.

We can breathe, see, eat, and dress ourselves.

When I hear the word Gratitude, I feel appreciative.

I don’t focus on things that I want to get. Instead, I look at my loved ones around me. They are still here; living and breathing. I can still pick up the phone to FaceTime or call them. I am grateful for them.

When I hear the word Gratitude, I look at the innocence of my nephews. How they are filled with happiness when they just get a kiss or hug from their parents.

I think that’s what Gratitude feels like. A moment when you feel joy without receiving anything material. It’s more of you reflecting on what you have instead of what you want.

Is it wrong to want things? Absolutely not. I believe in having faith to get something and then doing the work. But sometimes, just take a step back. Take a deep breath. Reflect on everything you have right in front of you. Be thankful for it. I think that when you do this, even more will come to you because you are grateful for what you have right now.

I know life is hard. It doesn’t get easier. There are so many things that we still want to get. But something that will help you get through it is Gratitude.

Think about it. Does it make sense to complain about the car you drive when you just drove past someone homeless or holding a sign up get something to eat? Does it make sense to complain about your noisy neighbors when you walked past someone sleeping on the sidewalk?

Try this trick. When you wake up in the morning, think about at least 3 things you are thankful for. Try not to make them tangible things. I’ll start:

I’m thankful for God. I’m thankful for my family and friends. I’m thankful for my health.

Take a deep breath and start your day.

Stay grateful beautiful people.

Love, Rach
