Thought For The Day - Recognising The Good that Happpens to Us

Recognising the good that happens to us is perhaps one of the best things that one can do. It seems so obvious but is very hard to practice.

It is hard top practice because we expect our good to happen in a certain way, and as we look only for that, we ignore all the other good that is continuously happening to us. In big or small measure.

When we do this i.e. ignore the good that is happening to us and instead focus on what is not there, we remain in a state of unhappiness or resentment even. The idea that we are not lucky seeps in as well.

On the other hand there are those lucky and evolved few who see the good that happens to them in every little thing. They are in a constant state of wonder, of gratitude and of happiness. All that happens to them, whether designed or by default, big or small, is welcomed with a big smile. It is an inclusive, all encompassing, wondrous attitude that sees good as it is.

In that state, we grow the good that happens to us. We can not always say that certain things happened because of certain causes - and it is in this understanding that we must thank all the good that comes our way, one way or another, big or small.

This is the difference to me between the happy and the unhappy, the contented and the unsatisfied, the lucky and the unlucky. Recognise and welcome all the good that happens to you and witness the difference in the quality of your life.

Being alive every day is a great blessing in itself, even if you don't count the many others!
