2020 has been super tough. Everyone had their fair share of problems, disasters and all the rough patches that came with the year 2020 but in all, it is important to be grateful. Today, I’ll be sharing 7 things to be grateful for this Christmas.
Like a popular adage says “When there is life, there is hope.” I always try my best to be grateful no matter what.
No matter how bad the situation is, I always find something to be grateful for and I have discovered that being grateful for everything (the good and the bad) helps me see things in a more positive light. Below are 7 things to be grateful for this Christmas.
First on the list of 7 things to be grateful for this christmas is life. The fact that you are alive is something to be super duper grateful for. Like I said before, When there is life, there is hope. If you ever have a reason to complain this Christmas, remind yourself of all the good things.
Remember that you are alive and well and remember that the fact that you are alive and well is solid proof that everything will fall in place sooner than you expect. Be grateful for life because only the living can celebrate Christmas, have fun, complain, eat, talk, etc.
2. what you have
Yes you might not have everything but you should be grateful for the little you have. Sometimes we complain about all the 1000 things we do not have and forget about the things we have without considering the fact that someone out there prays day and night to have that one thing we have. Appreciating the little things does go a really long way.
3. the fact that Jesus died for you
Most people celebrate Christmas without knowing what Christmas is all about. Christmas is an annual festival that is celebrated to remember the birth of Jesus. Jesus died for us. He died to save us. He died to redeem us from sin. Be grateful for the fact that you are set free from sin and eternal damnation because Jesus died for you.
Another thing on my list of 7 things to be grateful for this Christmas is to be grateful for shelter. Having a roof above the head is something most people take for granted. You should be grateful because you have a roof over your head, you have something to protect you from the rain, the sun and various climate conditions and you have a place to rest your head. Not everyone has this privilege!
The family is an important part of everyone’s life. If something bad happens to any of your family members, it affects you. The fact that your family members are alive, well, hale and hearty is one of the biggest things to be grateful for this Christmas.
6. the parts of your body
Another thing to be thankful for is the fact that the parts of your body are functioning well. You can move your hands, you can see, you can walk, you can talk, you can eat, you can breathe, you can hear.
7. the break
Last but not the least on my list of 7 things to be grateful for this christmas is the break. So many of us live stressful lives but, Christmas gives the opportunity to take a break and relax for a bit!
Christmas preparations can be stressful but Christmas gives us the opportunity to have time off work, unwind and spend time with family and friends! The break is something to be extremely grateful for.
It is very important to always practice gratitude. I try to practice gratitude as often as possible and it’s amazing!
It might not seem like it but you have more than enough to be grateful for this season! Make it a habit to practice gratitude during Christmas!
