Look for Reasons

Look for reasons to be happy!

We need to take the time throughout each and every day and find reasons why we should be happy. There are so many reasons we could come up with to be thankful for. It should be a relatively easy task. Where ever we are we should be able to look around and say "Boy, I really enjoy having this," or "Gee, I sure do love where I am at." How about being thankful or happy for different life experiences. The good times in life are always something to be thankful for and remember with fond memories. How about our close friends and our wonderful family? How about that shiny car in your driveway, or even just the fact that you have a car - who cares what it looks like! There are so many reasons. The food we eat and take for granted everyday. Our clean drinking water. Our well paying job. Our loyal pet. The list could go on and on. But what is important is that we take the time to be thankful and we take the time to look for these reasons and be happy. We are happy in the moment, and continue being happy as we are blessed with more and more things. Being grateful is something we should never get tired of.

We should enjoy everything that we have, every little blessing in our lives. There are so many special things in our life experience; don't take it for granted. Enjoy what you have, and live each day with a thankful heart.

  1. Hey Carla,

    Sounds good to me! I have been noticing how happy I have been recently. It's a really great feeling. Like you said, it's nice to be content with just being and not about the future or frivolous wants.
