Gratitude is a very strong positive feeling.
It’s a way to be thankful to God or the Universe for whatever you have attained in life.
When you are filled with gratitude towards life, you will attract more positive experiences.
So the department where I work is related to pensioners. Today, One 80-year-old pensioner visited the section to enquire about his pension. His hands were shaking. He had a walking stick. He was unable to stand properly. And the first thing he told me was that he is 80 years old and he has nobody to take care of him.
This made me realise how easily we curse our lives. Inspite of having every comfort and needs met, we have this tendency of complaining about the things we do not possess yet.
His face is still very clear in my mind. The thought that he is alone is killing me. Where the hell are his kids! He must have done everything for them since childhood. Why did he come alone!
Relations hold a very important place in our lives yet we take them for granted. Everybody is looking for happiness outside when we already have enough to be happy about.
I just want to pray for that man that he may find the strength to survive in such hardships of life. Old age is not easy. Loneliness is not easy.
This has made me realise the importance of practising Gratitude and being thankful to the universe for everything I have.
Always be grateful ❤
