“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” ~William A. Ward
There is a natural tendency for us humans to constantly want more, it’s in our nature. It’s always about the next best thing. What are the trends now-a-days? What is everybody getting? These are two questions that you may often ask yourself.
Companies are making a fortune because they know that in spite of the recession, or regardless of the drop in the economy that there is always a demand for new technology. When the iphone came out, people waited in long lines to get one. They did the same with the ipad and a host of other new gadgets on the scene.
With technology constantly changing and progressing, it’s very easy to lose focus on what we already have. We tend to forget about the things that we are thankful for.
Do you find yourself getting caught up in the hype and wanting the newest thing that’s come out on the market? Remember, God honors those who show gratitude for the good in their life. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of the day that we forget to say thank you.
Just like today’s saying states, there are 86,400 seconds in a day. I don’t know about you my friend but that sounds like too big of a number to not take 1 second to simply say thank you.
Gratitude is so powerful that they devoted a whole day to show thanks for the discovery of America. Every third Thursday in November businesses shut down and family comes in town to celebrate Thanksgiving. We take out time to focus on how much we have to be thankful for.
Why wait until Thanksgiving day to say thank you. I believe you will have more peace of mind when you show gratitude everyday. There is power in those 2 words, thank you.
Thank you, mends broken relationships
When there are misunderstandings in relationships, a simple thank you can provide the leverage that’s needed to resolve them. People let down their guards when they know that they are appreciated rather than undervalued. Remember, to show gratitude to someone today.
Don’t wait until Thanksgiving day, don’t wait until someone does a favor for you to show your gratitude. Find a special friend or loved one today and tell them thank you for anything that they’ve done for you. A simple thanks for being a great friend is one of the best thanks that one can receive.
What are some things that you’re grateful for? Something amazing happens when you focus your time and energy on what you’re thankful for rather than focusing on what you don’t have. I encourage you my friend to express more gratitude as you charge forth on your journey of life.
