Life is Full of Gratitude!

I would like to thank Scotty's Honey for this tag. I already made one of the same kind before. You can go over HERE to have a closer look. I am doing the honors of doing it again because first, the tagger who gave this to me is a sweet friend whom I truly appreciate. Second, the first one I've done was written in Filipino.
I came across one adage that has left a mark in my heart in the past which goes: "Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more (Bro. David Steindl- Rast)." I will again make a rundown of the things I am truly grateful for. These things may be trivial to some, but being a person that takes pleasure in simple things, these "trivial things" mean so much to me:
  • First and foremost, to God be all the glory! The space here could not suffice to express how much I am grateful for the beautiful things he has done in my life. I am humbly offering my thanks and uttermost praises to HIM for HE is the provider of everything – my life, my faith, my inner peace, the material blessings I receive and everything that makes me end each passing day with joy and tranquility. He has indeed done remarkable works not only for me but also to my entire family. Recognizing this, my heart overflow with thankfulness! I know that nothing can be enough to repay God’s infinite goodness. Not even by giving up my own life can I requite for His kindness, for even the very life I have truly belongs to Him. Yet, I am bound always to remember His glorious deeds, to return to Him in genuine recognition of His unfailing love, and to thank Him for being everything to me, for without Him in my life, I am nothing.

  • The blessing of having my Prince in my life. He has done so much for making me the person that I am now. Growing with the Lord with him has enhanced my faith and made me a better servant of God. He has showed me what true humility means! All these and so much more made me love him each and passing day of my life!

  • Talking with Mummy Carol. It's just amazing hearing her sweet voice and having a real good chat with my Prince' mother. I admire her for having raised a very good son. She always plaster a smile in my face!

  • The gift of your friendships. I am a person who values bonds and attachments to human beings. I thank those who were sincere in their dealings with me. I hold you so dear in my heart.

In order to be able to achieve and maintain happiness we need to, actively, be able to do two things: Complain and then let go (Dump the baggage, the roadblocks to happiness.) Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.) After all everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to share, please follow the appropriate link and do so:
