Stop ‘Practising’ Gratitude

Today, I watched the US presidential inauguration and a sentence from the speech Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries International was, “Let us not take for granted the air we breathe.”

In other words, ‘appreciate it!’ Do not suppose that you have the rights to obtaining the correct oxygen. By showing gratitude for the nonstop fresh air, you are submitting to the highest order of humility. 

Please, I besieged you, stop practising gratitude. Rather, live it! Let it be what you do; what live for. Have it be your pure sheer excitement that gratitude becomes the essential part of your daily journey. Thank everyone in your life. Thank people you come across. Thank those who furnish services to you .Show gratitude to the guy who cleaned up that gas station’s toilet you used. Thank the postmaster for delivering your letter. 

The problem with the word practicing, is that, it is often restricted. You can get bored and put aside the exercises. On the contrary, living with something or holding out for a specific reason, in the eventual, becomes part of your beautiful life. And this is what’s meant; a life worthwhile. 

I believe gratitude is more than just a requirement. It’s something that we are obligated to do. 

Overall, be thankful 100% of your lifetime. Be thankful to everything and everyone!
