365 Reasons

One day I met someone who complaints a lot. It was a really tiring moment for me had to listen to this person. The more I got older, apparently I have limited endurance to become a good listener to a such complainer. However, whilst this person was leading most of the conversation, my mind kept telling me about the meaning of this powerful words: be grateful.

Personally I believe, we all have the same chance, we all could come up with at least ONE reason to be grateful in a day. This means, at the end of the year, we all will have 365 reasons to be grateful. It’s not a really hard good habit to start, right? So, move over complainers!

Anyhow, the journey of my life has been taught me a lot. One of the big lessons came from a verse from the Holy Quran (Chapter 54:35): “As a Grace from Us: Thus do We reward those who give thanks.”. As I started to practice this verse in my daily life, I realized how blessed I am.

Needless to say more, here are some friendly reminders….

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
[Oprah Winfrey]

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
[Cynthia Ozick]

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?”
[William A. Ward]

Life is a gift – Live each day as a thank you note!
