What are the 3 things that you are grateful for today?

60 replies
Being grateful will help us to be more aware of our surroundings. It also help us to focus on what we have instead of what we lack, which is a key to happiness.

Today I am grateful for...

I am grateful that my good friend just came back from Australia and I am able to spend lots of time with him.

I am grateful that I have such a supportive family which I can rely on.

I am grateful that I have a enough food, clothes and shelter.

Your turn...

    I am grateful for:

    My music - fiddling and playing the harp, which have brought and continue to bring me many delightful memories and friends. It's an honor to play at weddings and Senior Centers!

    My writing - the delight of copywriting, of helping make people's lives just that much better. I remember helping a stranger buy her first harp - she'd been practicing the bagpipes (!) beside a stream on her farm and wanted something easier to play. Enter harp. A few months later, I got a letter from her- her neighbor told her how happy he was that the sick cow down by the stream across her field was no longer in so much pain! ;-)

    My family - my Dad just turned 85. He and my mom are still able to live on their own in a retirement community. They are exactly where they need to be and have many friends. And help is just a buzzer away.

    My house - a whole acre! After living in Wheaton, Land of the Sniper, this country life is truly a delight. Snakes in the patio, bats swooping down over my wonderful swimming pool at dusk, a flock of Cedar Waxwings passing through that pause and grace our cedar trees with their shimmering beauty for 3 days every fall and spring.. I love it!

    Oooops - that's 4 things.

    Sorry [Not!] lol

    Three things that I'm grateful for today are...
    1. I got up this morning!
    2. My family
    3. The opportunity to know about IM. So many people would be able to survive in this economy if they just knew that there are other options out there that will enable them to make money & put food on the table, which doesn't require that they get another J.O.B.

    Oh my God, how much time do I have? OK, for starters here I go:

    1) I'm grateful for my health
    2) I'm grateful to have spent Christmas with wonderful family
    3) I'm grateful for the new year which brings the opportunity to become, contribute and achieve far more than I did this year

    How's that?

    1.) I am grateful that I have achieved a level of success that caters to the needs of my family - my babies, my husband, and even myself.

    2.) I am grateful for the friends I have made online and the support they have given me in reaching my goals.

    3.) I am grateful to God for showing me what life is all about. If I hadn't had my kids, I would not understand and I often wondered about it.

    1)Yesterday my house was leaking from ice dams on the roof from all the wonderful holiday snow we had.
    I bought a roof rake to pull most of it off so, I didn't have to sit in a water soaked sofa while watching HellBoy II
    (Did you do know that after you get it off the roof you have a 6 foot pile on the sidewalk you need to shovel away?)
    And the most important part is I did NOT have a heart attack busting my ass, at 55, because the other tenant was too freakin busy to help.

    2)It was 50+ degrees today so, the 8 foot high snow pile is melting so I can now park my car again.And with God's humor he melted all the roof snow off the other tenants roof without them ever having to shovel it off with a roof rake like me so, the 4 hours I worked on it was not even necessary, ahHAHAHAHAH.

    3)The lady downstairs went away for the weekend so, I don't have to listen to never ending yip yap barking from her little rat dog for a few days.

    Are those O.K.?

      At first I kind of chuckled as I read your 3 things you are grateful for, thinking what a 'grumpy' day you must be having...
      And I was debating what kinds of things I would list as my 3 things -- something big, like my health and being alive? -- or something small, like hot tea on a cold day? -- and then I realized that you were really *on* to something...

      Aren't we supposed to find ways to be grateful even for those things and experiences that we don't 'like'? ? ? ? Something along the line of 'blessings in disguise.' I'm really having a bit of a challenge with this one, but there is *something* in this.... I'm just not entirely sure how I can look at some things differently to be grateful in some way -- the example that keeps coming to me: how can I be 'grateful' when my neighbour lets their dog take a dump in my yard? (one of today's petty annoyances)

      What would happen if I found ways to be grateful for stuff like that?

      Is it just that I haven't looked hard enough for the bless in the mess?

    I am also greatful to having dislocated my shoulder (weird eh?) to find a deeper rooted problem I may not have known about otherwise.

    I am greatful for all I have been given and all the things that have happened and continue to happen in my life, for without them I would not be the person I am today.

    The response had been great in this thread, but do you know why do we want to show gratitude when we can actually be selfish?

    Research had shown that showing gratitude can make us more positive and happier. I had written an article more extensively on this point, you can read more for more information.

    I am grateful that my good friend just came back from Australia and I am able to spend lots of time with him.

    I am grateful that I have such a supportive family which I can rely on.

    I am grateful that I have a enough food, clothes and shelter.

    I am grateful for a new President Of the USA

    Is Making Money Online True? Rapid Cash Marketing Gurus Jeff Wellman, Paul Count & Dixie Brown Say Yes!

    Is making money online true? That is a very valid question indeed!

    Well it largely depends on what you define as your idea of making money on-line!
    We all know we can make money online, in fact it is very easy to make money online.

    Here are just some few examples of things people have done:
    1. Internet Marketing, a very popular way of money online
    2. You could follow in the footsteps of the Nigerians in their money making online scams, just send mass emails to unsuspecting folks telling them about your dead relative or your super-rich uncle/father who died suddenly in the country 10,000th coup of the week leaving behind massive fortunes that need to be transferred into account, preferably yours!
    3. You could great really creative and auction your virginity. This is a true story by the way of one US student who has put her virginity up for auction in order to pay for a masters degree. Bidding for a one-night stand with 22-year-old Natalie Dylan has reached £2.5 million ($3.7 million), rising from offers of £162,000 ($243,000) made when the auction first appeared last September! And the bidding goes on!
    4. You could get involved in one of the many variations of the porn industry!

    I hope that my point here is clear there are a multitude of way of making money online if you have an imagination and little to no moral constraint!

    However I am going to focus on the #1 legitimate way of making money online through the internet. I just got done with a call where I learned many secrets of making money online. My friends Jeff Wellman, famous for laying off his boss and showing others how to do it, Dixie Brown and Paul counts have come together to collectively design a simple systems that shows you how to earn while you learn.

    I know, I know you are tired of the same old by line, learn while you earn only to pay out huge sums of money, and then find out later you would have done better sending the money to your Nigerian scam artist friends. I also know you are tired of hearing how easily others are making money online while you stumble in the dark with nothing to show but frustration!

    Here is the number one easy secret of making money online : You have to work with someone who has been there and done that. You must connect with those who know where to send you, and those who are willing to guide you step by step. It is not news that for many times are hard. It might be news to you that many companies, even though they may be laying people off, are hiring many internet marketing and internet business entrepreneurs to conduct numerous tasks for them and they are paying top dollar for it!

    Well, the bottom line is this, I was on the call for about one and a half hours and I was able to get a book writing deal on the spot as well as an ongoing deal to write articles just like the one you are reading! Now how is that for Rapid Cash Marketing.

    And Jeff Wellman, Dixie Brown & Paul Counts will be running a contest, where they will pick up to 6 people that will get coaching at NO COST, That's right FREE Coaching. They will show you how to learn and earn all on their own dime. Hurry! What are you waiting for Rapid Cash Marketing

    Thirdly I get to drive my son to and from school everyday. I am always here for him

    I am grateful that I have limitless options in my life. I can choose my job, my lovers, my home, my dinner - Whenever I feel out of control, I try and remember this.

    I am grateful that I have experienced more in life than just what's in my hometown, home state, and native country.

    I am grateful that I have time to play around on the internet, when some people are out there doing manual labor for a pittance.

    I am grateful for this forum, and the opportunity it gives me to connect with others who have similar goals and mindsets :-)

    I am grateful that I am a magnificent child of God, and that He continues to bless me with more talents and gifts so I can thank Him more :-)

    I am grateful for all the lessons I have learned throughout my life, and for all the lessons I will learn as I continue to grow :-)
