Show your gratitude

We are nearing the end of a year and a new beginning is going to start soon for every one of us. A great way to give back something to life is by showing gratitude for all the things happened to you. Don’t forget to thank life for a smart you, for the courage it gave to speak out your opinion, the food and the good sleep, lovely folks at home and workplace, the ever recharged sun, the never ending love and the list goes on...



Always appreciate yourself even for the smallest achievements. Don’t expect others to give you a reward or a good review for your deed. Every time you do something remarkable, just pat yourself. Keep your mind happy and motivated for life’s biggest tasks and challenges.


Give attention to the people who makes your life worthwhile. Money and other materialistic possessions can be given by anyone. Don’t forget to give your time, yes, the irrevocable, precious and valuable time. Shower with your warm and care by being beside them.

Manage and spend your time responsibly. It’s a way of showing respect and gratitude to life for that intellectual property given to you. Time helps to earn loads of money, created billionaires, built spaceships and even empowered you to create a timeline by your children. But it never ever gave back that one second you spent in your life. So the value cannot be ascertained and it’s priceless.

Make everyday a thanksgiving day. Be grateful every morning for all the good and the bad things happened to you. Good things because it caused you happy moments, and bad things because it gave you a challenge to overcome and thank that you’re still alive! You will definitely feel a better day and a better life by showing your gratitude. Be inspired and have a great life!

inspiring and great message here :) people should spend some times reading this post and realize how we should show our gratitude for all the blessing we have :)

thanks for sharing. this is my first visit and i shall come back to read lots of incredibly written entries of yours :))

Ashwini said...

Nice thought. We should be thankful for everything that happens to us. Coz things always happen for a good reason. We need to have the heart to appreciate others and most of all, our own self. Nicely written, as usual :-)

Sujatha Sathya said...

just what i needed today :)
was feeling very low for some reason

its true,being alive itself sometimes makes this life so much worthwhile & enough to make us look forward to better tomorrows

i detest people who don't respect time. it irks me no end when ppl turn for meetings, events etc late. it's a way of showing respect - i agree. i watched the recent success party event of The Dirty Picture where AB Sr as usual turned up on the dot & the film's start cast came "fashionably" late

I am thankful for everything except for good sleep. Because of the Indian family living above my apartment I am not sleeping peacefully since I moved in. Inspite of all the request they are not understanding. The guy has taken it to his ego now. Anyways I am really thankful to me for the day I landed on your blog. Thanks everybody for each and every moment...

I love the line when you said that make every day as Thanksgiving day. A wonderful post to tell us that we must cherish life.

Thank you for writing posts full of wisdom and enlightening us. Most of all, thanks for being such a great friend...:)

@Inspector Saahab: Thank you for such a wonderful comment. Welcome here and lets start a great journey in blogosphere :)

Anand said...

@Ashwini: Yes, things always happen for a good reason. Agree to your point. Thank you very much :)

Anand said...

@Sujatha Sathya: Am glad this post came on time to you.
Yes, time is a precious element and I respect your views on people who will always turn late for all things... Thanks a ton Sujatha :)

Anand said...

@Saru Singhal: I wish for you to get a good sleep every night. Egos can't last long... Think everyday that the guy has already left the place or shed his ego. Soon things will change.

Thank you sooo much for mentioning about the day you discovered my blog. The feelings are mutual my friend :) And thanks a ton for such a generous praise. You made my day Saru :)

hiii

I loved this post if urs.. :D

yes, that's true the 'ever recharged sun' is so wonderful esp in winters :)

and patting oneself is good, I never do that, but will do so and yes, bad experiences too give us something very valuable-experience :)

Anand said...

@A S: Didn't get your second line. If u are asking that this post was mine, yes it is :)

Both good and bad experiences will teach us something in life. And why should one expect others to appreciate when you can do it... So pat yourself for every small success :)

Yep we should be thankful.. nothing is going to change even if we are not thankful.. so why not have a positive approach! I get it now! (Is that what u meant? or is it my mind.. interpreting it in a negative manner?)

Happy new year wishes.. dear friend!

Nasnin Nasser said...

Hi Anand,

I don't know how I missed this post! I am feeling sad to be here so late;) Gratitude! That's a topic needed to be discussed! It's a thing without corruption to a small extend:) And you have presented it so freshly as usual!

And that snow image on the top is so cool! Wishing you a wonderful time ahead this year!

No appropriate quote is coming to my mind right now! Otherwise I would have scribbled your space with some of them! And next time I would be careful not to miss your posts;) Regards:)

Anand said...

Hi Nasnin,am glad to see your comment! Thanks a lot for your wonderful praise. And pls, no need to feel sad at all. I can understand... I want people to leave with a smile from my blog every time :)
