Have you ever notice how we always seem to be rushing for things? There’s always something that we are chasing after be it a better life or a better position for example. And because of that, we often miss the moment when opportunity presents itself to us. As a result, we live a fairly unhappy and miserable life.
What if we were to tell you that there is a way around this? That there is a way to be happy.
David Steindl-Rast has a simple solution for you. He believes that to be happy all you have to do is to be grateful.
So what is gratitude? According to David, gratitude is experiencing something valuable and is given to you. The feeling of gratefulness spontaneously rises in your heart and that feeling instantly makes you happy.
The key of grateful living is to realise that every moment is a gift. And the gift within this gift is the opportunities.
It is definitely easier said than done especially with all the negativity we face everyday. But there is an easy method to follow that will allow you to live gratefully. It is called STOP – LOOK – GO.
