Rules of Happiness #2–Be Grateful – January 7 Devotions

Welcome to the mini-series highlighting the Rules of Happiness, based on the book by entrepreneur and self-development leader, Karl Moore. Yesterday we learned about Rule #1: Stop Feeling Sorry for Yourself. These simple rules yield valuable truths and life-changing power IF we take action on them.

So today we will move on to…

Rule #2 –  Be Grateful

 

“Think of all the wonderful things you have to be grateful for right now. It could be your family. Or your health. Maybe your home. Your friends. Your brain. Your heart. Your spirit.

 

We’ve all got amazing things in our own lives that make us smile with joy. And if we can count these blessings every day, we’ll discover a greater appreciation of the beautiful world we surround ourselves with.”

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life

is thank you,

it will be enough.”

– Meister Eckhardt

My reflections:

I have noticed a difference in my overall attitude toward life ever since I began my nearly daily posting of an “Attitude of Gratitude” on Facebook. It definitely helps to focus on the positive by counting your blessings!

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Do you find it easy or difficult to practice an attitude of gratitude and count your blessings on a regular basis?

  1. Thinking about all the blessings that you have in your life definitely lifts your mood instantly! I love how good it makes you feel.

  2. I feel like I have so I much to be grateful for. Things in my early life were out of my control, but know God is in control helps me to feel at peace about things even if they don’t go the way I had hoped. Gratitude helps keep your emotions in check.

  3. This is a great post and I do believe we should all count our blessing each day. It is so important for us all never to take things or people for granted. In the past 4 months my whole family has indeed learned this lesson of life because of almost loosing my mother so many times. Thinking positive and knowing we are blessed each day has made everything so much easier for us all. Thanks for a great post.
