In this post, we would like to share twenty-two things to be grateful for today. It is interesting to note that the primary reason many people are discontent with their lives is because of ingratitude. In fact, it is quite easy to become indifferent about good things that happen to us or around us. When that happens, we sadly, only focus on those little things that don’t seem to go our way. Today, we encourage you to take some time to reflect and identify specific things to be thankful for. As we try to be more grateful every day, we will find that our lives are better for it.

Have you heard of that popular saying from a song written back in 1897 about “counting your blessings”? Well, if you have, it is an admonition that’s worth putting into practice. Most times however, we instead tend to count our problems and leave our blessings ignored. As we said earlier, such an attitude easily leads to discontent and a focus on our troubles. One easy way to identify things to be grateful for is to consider those less fortunate than we are. An understanding of what others don’t have and how much they need it could help us become more thankful.
