We are all guilty of it. Thinking, “I’ll be happy when…” You fill in the blank. We all think that at some point in the future we will be happier than we are right now. We’ll find happiness when we have more money, children, a spouse, or even a college degree. But the fact of the matter is that you have a lot to be grateful for right now! Right in front of your face are many reasons for you to be happy with your life, regardless of your present circumstances. Here are some of the things that make me happy that I’m grateful for.
1. Help for my loved ones. At some point in our lives, we all will probably be faced with addiction. Whether it’s ourselves that have an addiction or a loved one, we will have to face the problem. I’m grateful for treatment centers that can help others with addiction. I like to visit LaPalomaTreatment.com to learn more about how to help those suffering from addiction.
2. My health. I’m so grateful for a healthy body that lets me work and take care of my family. I can run, I can breathe, and I can write. Not everyone in this world can say that.
3. The holiday season. The holidays make me so happy. In fact, they make me almost giddy! I love how the world seems a little kinder and a little more gentle this time of the year.
4. My warm house. Sure, it’s not a mansion, but it’s home. And it’s where my family is. There is love and warmth here that cannot be bought with any amount of money.
If you start to think, “what if” stop and count your blessings instead. Think of all the wonderful things surrounding your life that make you happy. What are you grateful for today?
