#AtoZChallenge: G is Gratitude
Spirit is the wave of beauty. You can enjoy this beauty of living when your attitude transforms into gratitude. It is the gratefulness for everything you have and you haven’t. Complains, desires and comparisons will never show you the path of Contentment. Those are all the continuation of the inner emptiness. If you want to find the lack in your life, you can see it all over. On the other hand, if you want to appreciate every single thing of life, you will feel full and grateful for everything.
Suppose, you have no house to stay and you were dying in search of shelter for sometimes. Suddenly, someone offered you a shelter in that critical period. Then, the emotion of gratitude will flood your eyes. But, if he or she had given the same at any other time, it wouldn’t have such value in your life. You understood the importance of roof on the head at the time of crisis. This is why you are overwhelmed by your gratitude.
In the same way, you couldn’t realize the value of life and the things related to your living until you are not falling into crisis. The person, who lost his vision by some accident, ask him the importance of vision. The mother, who lost her little baby by any incident, ask her the value of having a child. The man, who is wandering the whole day for a piece of bread, ask him the value of food.
The fact is, you cannot feel grateful without the crisis. And your demands, expectations, and complaints are increasing by the time along with the gains. This is why you cannot appreciate the single gain of life.
When you can realize the way life is happening, how many things are involved in continuing your living, you will be overwhelmed by your gratitude. You will feel thankful for your joy, pain, betrayal, love and mistakes as well. Everything is happening to make you conscious about your spirit. Living with full of consciousness will help you to see the beauty of living. The feeling of gratitude makes you receptive to enjoy every pulse of life. Your whole being becomes thanksgiving because you will feel nothing is missing and everything is complete. This thanksgiving observes the richness of your livelihood.
