Things To Be Thankful For In Life

It is very easy to focus on things that we don’t have and cry about it all over but have you ever thought about things which you possess and you have never even felt thankful for them? 

In fact, Melody Beattie said, ‘Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.’
