Things To Appreciate To Have A Better Day

Be grateful for what you have and work for what you want.

Those who know me well know that I am a quite sentimental person and I cry almost about everything. But I am who I am and being sentimental isn’t a bad thing.

As I mentioned in my previous post on being in presentit’s important to enjoy the present moment because we can’t change the past and we don’t know anything about the future. So, the present seems to be the best option to focus on. And here comes also to appreciate little things.

Although it may be hard to focus on big things, let alone the small one, we should be grateful for what we have rather than what we don’t.

Sooo, for those who can’t still find things to be grateful for, here are a few things that we can appreciate to have a beautiful day.

  • it’s autumn
  • finally, it’s time for nice smelly candles
  • and with it comes also warm socks and sweaters
  • which means  long movie nights
  • the most important family
  • and you should not forget about yourself
  • the present and with it what we HAVE
  • good lunch/dinner
  • freedom
  • a good book
  • the mornings when you can sleep how long you want
  • your favourite tea
  • music that sounds in your ears 
  • the rest after you come from the school
  • your feelings no matter what feelings they are
  • the time
  • small victories because they create the big ones
  • a smile
  • 11 weeks to Christmas
  • happy tears
  • a gift from anybody

We all have something that we are grateful for every day. Something that makes us get from the bed and enjoy the day. And we should stick with this because there could be a day when everything that we’ve been grateful for will be gone. So, enjoy the present and let’s be grateful for small things.

I am curious: What is on your list of things you are grateful for? Share them with me.

    We know that we SHOULD be thankful, but our in our rush to get going, we often forget to stop and be thankful for the blessings we enjoy. When I do that, it changes my day!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Unfortunately, #3 doesn’t apply to those of us who live in Southern California 🙁 we just moved here last month from Maine and fall here completely sucks haha I’m that loser walking around in my fall wardrobe in 85 degree weather. But the rest of this list is spot on! I love it!
