The Power of Gratitude

It is easy to be ungrateful, isn’t it? One could argue that it’s stitched into the very fabric of our society to want things that we don’t have. Consumerism is baked right in it. Everywhere we turn, we are reminded of how little we have, rather than how much we are blessed with and should be grateful for.

In a society that’s governed by the haves versus the havenots; where money is all-powerful and helps epitomise the alluring facets of life like freedom, security and power, it is easy to be ungrateful. When you are working tirelessly to no avail, and unable to get ahead in life, especially after enduring the heartache of failure or financial turmoil, it’s easy to get disheartened and become ungrateful.

If you find yourself in that situation right now, fear not, we’ve all been there. Yet, there are ways we can become grateful for the things we have in our lives. In fact, gratitude is quite possibly the most direct pathway to success. The problem is most people hinge their happiness and gratitude on achievements.

I wasn’t able to see all the things that I had to be grateful for until I experienced the COVID-19 pandemic. It allowed me to look at things differently, see everything in a new light and with a new perspective. If you’ve failed at something, or you’re living a life less than what you feel you deserve, rise again through perseverance and a positive community because you’re not alone.

Gratitude can change your life because it is the single most powerful source of inspiration that any person can tap into if they would simply stop and pay attention to the simple beauty and miracle of life. Free yourself from toxic emotions with the redemptive quality of gratitude.
