Enjoy What You Have

It is truly beneficial to enjoy what you have. Let all the good things surround all parts of your mind and spirit. Take a bath and meditate on all the good things that have happened to you. Focus on them. Everyone has had bad things to happen. However, if you focus on them you may attract more of them. So focus on what you want. Good things. Good people. Good events.

You tell me. I can’t stop thinking about the terrible thing that happened to me just this morning. Okay. Accept the bad thing that happened this morning. There’s nothing you can do about it. It’s in the past. Look on the bright side of the thing that happened to you. It could have been worse.

If you read the papers or scour the internet, you can definitely find someone who is worse off than you. Be thankful that it wasn’t worse. Do what you can to prevent it from happening again or to make it better. Love yourself and respect yourself. Forgive yourself. Forgive others. and live the rest of your day rejoicing in all the good things you have had in your life.

Call someone from your past that was especially nice to you or write them a letter.  A note of special remembrance  means a lot to people.  It will cheer them up. It’s amazing that sometimes when you try to help cheer a friend or a stranger, it also cheers you.  When you Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you, it  will greatly lift your spirits.

Good things: house, car, food water, bed, linens, television, radio, flashlights, etc.

Good people: Mother, Father, sisters, brothers, spouse, family, friends, acquaintances, strangers who have helped you

Good experiences: job, vacations, dinner with family and friends, dates, movies, etc.

Good things in the mail: checks, contracts, cards, letters

God blessed you with many good things in your life. He has a pleasant surprise for you today. When you enjoy what you have, you will find it.
