I believe that gratitude is one of the recipes for happiness. And this comes from experience. It’s something I’ve been meaning to write about for a while now.
We all know that 2020 was not an easy year and I don’t want to get into the details as we all know how it was. Like many people, I was emotionally affected by everything that was going on and for the first time in my life I felt things that I hadn’t felt before. Negative feelings. I was a different person from the girl I was before Covid-19 era.
Luckily the negative feelings I had didn’t last long and things are back to normal. Not only do I somehow (not completely, because people change) feel like my old self, I have also learned to count my blessings. You see, I have always reminded myself to count my blessings not my problems, but it wasn’t until a while back that I started to see things from a different perspective. Not only did I start counting my blessings, but I started to be grateful for them and this made me feel really content. I loved the vibe I was getting from it.
If you keep on thinking about how bad everything is and how you don’t feel good about anything, you won’t allow good energy to get into your life and come to you. The bad energy is blocking your view from seeing other things that can make you feel better. I know life doesn’t always go as we want, but when bad things happen, that doesn’t mean we should stay in the bubble of bad vibes. It’s okay to be sad and upset after something unpleasant happens, but don’t forget to get out of the bubble of sad feelings. Remember the good things that you still have and be grateful for them and let the positivity find its way to you. Allow yourself to see the good also. Because that is life, we can’t only have the good set of things or only the bad set, we get from both and that is okay. I can’t say that enough, remember to be grateful. Because as stated above, I believe that one of the recipes for happiness is being grateful.
