Why Not Be More Grateful?

As the year come to an end, I can't help but look back on all the wonderful moments and opportunities that came my way. It's been a roller coaster ride emotionally but nonetheless the experience has taught me a lot about myself and it's something I wouldn't trade for anything else.

The thing about life is that it gives you more than enough opportunities. It's up to us whether to take it or not. And as we go about living our lives, we have to acknowledge the fact that we are responsible for every decisions we make. Even when it comes to our own happiness, we are responsible for it. It's up to us whether to dwell on those emotions or just let things go and move on, knowing that everything happens for a reason.

So even if the situation doesn't appear as how we wanted, there's still so many things we can grateful for, even the smallest of a thing. Being grateful allows us to be more positive and makes us happier in general. And once we knowledge all the good things around us, we'll realize how blessed we are and we attract more blessings to come into our lives.
