Be thankful

be thankful

To put it simply, I have had a rough couple of weeks {hence my silent absence for a little while}. They say moving house is considered one of the most challenging and stressful experiences anyone can go through. Ha! Who ever said that was definitely on par! We packed our house, we moved, we unpacked, we are still unpacking, all meanwhile trying to do everything else that consumes our normal daily life.

But, I try {after a glass of wine or two:)} to see the beauty and positive side to this time of my life. I am trying to be thankful for the challenge {and surviving} this moment. It was kind of surreal to have come across this poem now. I am being thankful for the difficult times:


Be Thankful 
By Author Unknown

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.

It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.
