“Never let a day go by without looking for at least one thing in your life to be happy and grateful for…there will be hundreds of reasons to be grateful, if your focus is on finding them!” Dr Sylvia Forchap-Likambi
“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength”. Proverbs 17:22
Gratitude is a powerful and very fulfilling attitude and life expression. The more grateful you are in life, the more fulfilled/ satisfied and happy you are with your life and the surrounding circumstances. This is so because, you tend to focus on the things you already possess or are sure of possessing…which implies your focus is not on what you don’t have or need, but rather, it is on what you already have or you are certain you will have. When you do this very often, you constantly find yourself in a position of satisfaction, abundance, acknowledgement, and appreciation of life, regardless of other obvious challenges or obstacles you may be facing in life.
Be thankful at all time…regardless of what the situation might be, at least it is not over yet…and you are given another chance to make it right again—maybe two, or three, or four more chances…you may never know. As long as you are alive, then there is still hope for you—the battle is not over yet, and you are not a victim but a victor. Be thankful for the fact that the current situation has not consumed and drowned you…you are still swimming in the ocean of adversity…yes you are…surely and steadily, to the shore of rest and resolution—still sane, or half sane and free—do not be discouraged or give up just yet…
There is still immense hope for you. Be thankful for the priceless gift of life itself—for where there is life there is also hope. Only the living can have hope. Again be thankful for another opportunity to settle scores and make it right again.
I have literally observed and experienced the power of gratitude work miracles both in my life and in the lives of close friends and families. Gratitude provides you with more fuel and the strength to carry on—to sustain the journey, the healing and restoration process.
Wishing you a blessed and awesome week.
With a grateful heart…
Dr Sylvia Forchap Likambi
