Why Gratitude Is Important?

In my previous posts, I have talked about Gratitude, either it is 

This 1 word has really improved my way of thinking and is still doing that. This is the reason I decided to make a complete article on this topic, (this is a whole topic in itself) so that it may help you in every way and you may also get the benefit of applying this law in your life.

Basics of gratitude

 Gratitude has arrived from the word "gratus" or "gratitudo" meaning thankful.  
Gratitude is the most powerful technique of the Law of Attraction. It is one of the important tools of the Law of attraction. It raises your vibration and brings you closer to the universe. It is the 1st step towards positivity and abundance. Once you are grateful for everything you have, you will have more and more of that. 
It is the straightforward feeling that we express towards the supreme God who has created us and this beautiful world.
In this world of challenges and uncertainties, where there are sorrow and pain, if we are appreciative to thank god for each little thing he has given to us, we are going to move 1 step closer towards him, and moving one step closer towards him is like achieving success in the exam of life.

Gratitude isn't a 1-day task. It must and should be practiced daily. It is not a 21 days or 90 days challenge.
 Though to form it a habit you can start by applying these small challenges.  However, you should not stop after that challenge is over. Make it your lifestyle. Like as it is important to brush daily, to have a bath every day, to eat food to survive, in the same way, gratitude is compulsory to possess a good psychological state and to have a happy life.
When you will say these words Thank You to God, to the universe, or whosoever you meet in your daily life, you will start to see a positive impact in yourself. You would start to feel happier and productive each day. 

How gratitude can influence our lives?

If you wish to have a life with a positive and stress-free attitude, you must first have to stop COMPLAINING. Complaining or resisting or cribbling only blocks your blessings that you are getting from the Universe.
When you see people around you having everything and still complaining or weeping about not having 1 specific thing, you would see them slowly losing all those things that they already had, because what they do not have is - gratitude.
They lack acknowledging and appreciating the items, money, career, and even relationships. When they don't know how to admire these things, they end up losing all of them or not receiving more of them.
If you want to lose all the amazing things from your life, if you want to make it hard to pay your bills, if you want to be afraid to check your bank account, if you would like to lose your relationships with your loved ones, if you want to build a negative attitude, if you want to make your life harder, then start COMPLAINING!

But if you wish to gain and retain all the amazing, wonderful, beautiful things in your life, if you want to easily pay your bills without worrying about the money, if you wish to own a happy and joyful relationship with your loved ones, if you want to have a positive outlook towards life and if you like your life to be fulfilled, then BE GRATEFUL!

No matter how bad someone's life is or what quantity problems he's facing, there's always one thing to be grateful for.
You are connected with the divine energy. The universe knows that there are no problems in your life. It is you who have created problems in your life, and you have the POWER to recreate it, to make your life better.

Once you are grateful for healthy living, for receiving more than you could imagine, The Universe is going to bless you with more.

Think and feel that your life is the best. Amidst this dangerous virus, you are safe, your family is safe, you have got food to eat, you have not much but necessary money to survive and pay your bills. You have survived the 6 months of this dreadful year.
You have learned a lot in this quarantine period. You have gained a lot mentally.
 It's okay if your friends are above you. Everyone's life is different. Do not compare your life to someone else. Everybody is liable for his/her own karmas and is getting the reward for that. And if you really want to compare your life to someone else then please compare it with a street vendor or hawker or a genuinely poor person who you see on the footpaths.

WHAT GRATITUDE DOES NOT MEAN? 

But applying gratitude should not also mean that you are doing this to get more. It is not a device for greediness. This is not your lottery or free coupons that whenever you apply you would instantly get the results.

 However, gratitude is a positive feeling of thanking God for all of the blessings. In fact, you can appreciate anyone who does something for you. In this way, you would make their day and it will also give you satisfaction. Thus, feel emotions and sentiments while expressing your appreciation towards something, without any urge to get richer instantly. 

Believe that universe is guiding and supporting you while you are giving thanks to it.
Make it a habit to say these words to god every day.
Here's an example of affirmations what you can say - 
  • I am thankful to God for giving me a healthy and blessed life.
  • I'm thankful to God for providing me money and basic amenities.
  • I'm thankful to God for giving me a wonderful family.
  • I'm grateful to God for bestowing his blessings upon me.
  • I'm thankful to God for giving me an amazing life.
  • I'm thankful to God for my career and job.
  • I'm thankful to God for all of the abundances of gifts he will be giving me in the future.

You can either count your blessings mentally, or say thanks to someone who makes you happy, or by doing some meditation or you can even write in a gratitude journal.

I personally use this "gratitude journal" mobile app -

  2. Hey Manveen! Thank you so much for sharing this post. I'm the maker of the Gratitude app and I'm so happy to learn that you are finding the app really meaningful.

    The key highlights for me from this article were "Stop complaining" and "Gratitude is not a device for greediness". I had made this app initially for me to change my mindset from complaining about everything to feeling grateful about my privileges. I was going through a tough time. And the everyday reminder to look for something to be grateful about is so incredible during the initial part of the journey and bring a self-change.

    Thank you so much sharing the app. Really made my day! Lots of love.
