Do You Value Happiness & Gratitude?

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Sometimes I wonder if I really value the happiness and gratitude I feel so often, or do I take these for granted. Being grateful has become so natural for me that I do not even recognize it, except for those rare moments when I ponder about everything that is happening in my life. Years ago I was not grateful for the bad things that were happening to me, and I wasn’t grateful when those bad things turned out to be good things in disguise. As time goes by all of us learn to appreciate the lessons that life is “serving” us, and the lessons we learn while overcoming hardships, and, than the gratitude is coming naturally and easily to us.

As to the happy moments – when we have these – we often would like to have more without taking into consideration that if every single moment in our lives was a happy one – we would not appreciate the happiness for what it really is. Life would simply become very boring, and all the beauty of the happy moments will simply vanish. We would not be able to distinguish what really happiness means. And only when we start seeing the truth and meaning of all the unhappiness and hardships we start valuing the happy moments we share here on Earth.

I’d like to close this rant with the following quote and to wish you a splendid week ahead while being always Fabulous…

“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.”
Douglas Everett
