The Power of Positive Thinking – Be Happy Now – Be Grateful For What You’ve Got!

Be Grateful for what you have Now.....

Sometimes its easy to get caught up in life. Running around from one thing to another always striving for the next big thing in life, not really feeling truly happy in the present moment. Sound like you? Here’s how to be happy now, in this very moment… read on…

Now a really super way to bring yourself right into the present moment to be happy right now is to stop and think about what you already have or have already achieved in life. Be grateful for what you’ve got. Simple.

The following exercise is an amazing way to instantly shift your mood whatever the weather and help you to be happy now, right in this present moment.

Stop… Take a moment… Sit down, relax… Breathe deeply…


Now go through all the wonderful things in your life you are grateful for. Start with yourself first ~ I am so happy and grateful now that I am alive! I am grateful for the air I breathe, the beauty I see, the life that is in me and all around me….

Then go deeper into all the things which you are grateful for about you. Continue this exercise….

Then move onto your friends, family, connections, job, business, possessions, give thanks for all the things you have in your life. However small ~ Be Grateful

In case you are feeling a little low right now and are struggling, put yourself in the right frame of mind, imagine the following:

You have just finished getting ready for an important evening out, a meal, an event, a party, an interview, an important meeting…. make it something personal to you. You have spent ages getting ready, all made up, hair done (suited and booted for the gentlemen reading this) You are about 5 minutes walk from your destination when the heavens open up and the rain starts to pour, you duck into a doorway for shelter right away. There is no way you can walk to your destination in this and show up looking like a drowned rat. “Blast!”

As you glance to the right of the doorway you see a huge golfing umbrella leaning up against the wall, no-one else is around just you… and the umbrella. Perfect! You feel so grateful, just what you needed at the right time, as you put it up and start to continue your walk a car pulls up at the side of you, you hear a familiar voice “Fancy seeing you here, jump in, stay dry, we’re going where you’re going”.

Right now, in that moment how do you feel?

You feel SO Grateful, just what you needed at the perfect time. An umbrella to walk to the car and a ride to your destination – perfect!

Now this is the feeling place you want to be in when you give thanks for all the great things you have in your life.

Be grateful for what you have got. Guess what the more you give thanks the more positive you will feel and more things will show up in your life to be grateful for. Win Win. ♥

  3. I love this post. We do need to be more grateful for what we have. You put it beautifully!

  4. I’ve never looked at gratitude in this manner before. I’m truly grateful for overcoming some serious health issues and getting out of a very abusive marriage and raising 4 unique children alone. I have obtained a BA. in Psychology and I need 9 credit hours to obtain a Post Bac. in Substance Abuse. I’m presently pursuing an AS. in Online Information Management. But for whatever reson I still feel inadequate and I think in part this comes from the negative self-concep that I was raised with. My grandparents raised me and my grandfather always made as feel as if we weren’t good enough for anything.
