There are three awesome things that happen to us when we are truly thankful for the blessings in our lives... and they are:
1. The more grateful you are for the things that you have, both big and small, the more things you find in life to be thankful for.
2. When you are truly thankful; it creates a sense of joy and strength in your life and the things that once weighed heavy upon you or upset you in life, don't seem so very important or heavy anymore. You have a greater sense of peace.
3. Things just seem to go smoother in life and turn out right. Life is less of a struggle and strain, everything just seems to fall in place at the right time. It's almost as if you're living a charmed life.
* When giving thanks and being grateful for the blessings in your life, don't be overly superficial with it. Of course it's proper to give thanks for our jobs, our homes, our new cars and any extra cash that found its way into our hands. But also be thankful for the little things; another day to experience life, another evening at the dinner table with your family, maybe the weather was just the way you like it on a particular day, maybe you read something in a book that expanded your way of thinking? There are so many things to be thankful for in life, it just doesn't always have to be about the material things we have acquired. And that, as being truly thankful.
