As you move through the hustle and bustle of your everyday life, do you take time to notice and be thankful for all of the blessings that surround you?
Think about the abundance in your world currently and take a moment to surface some appreciation for this. Are you thinking, “Why do I have to be thankful, I’ve worked hard to create my own abundance?”
It is important to be conscientious of those who’ve conquered battles of self-sufficiency before you. With each endeavor you have surpassed, it is likely there were historical martyrs, and many were not famous who’ve fought and tread paths that eased the effort of your journey today.
From civil to woman’s rights, strong souls from the yesteryears have suffered and many have lost their lives in order to make our world a better place for us. And, regardless of your situation, for this we should all feel grateful.
With this realization, surfacing and showing appreciation for the support that both preceded us and enabled the blessings that surround us is way to honor these lives that were lost.
Today, as you make your way through your routine, take a moment to give thanks for the freedom you are entitled to, remember at one time, these things you take for granted were not privy to us!
