Being Grateful In Life

Sometimes being grateful is difficult when we are going through challenging times.The act of being grateful seems relatively simple. Things go well, so we acknowledge by being grateful. Many of us understand this concept and will be the first to say that we take the time to do this. But how many of us can say we feel grateful when things don't go our way or when we feel others are not treating us the way we'd like them to. If we truly believe that our spirit grows stronger through crisis and chaos, then shouldn't we feel grateful during these times as challenging as they may be. Today, live a life of appreciation. Knowing that everything you receive comes from a compassionate universe and is a part of your journey.

Sometimes we need to step back to appreciate true beauty...
