How many days does it take to make a habit ?
Good or bad apparently it takes 21 days.So officially writing #Thankful Thursdays is a habit now.
Has it made me happier?
Has it made me more thankful?
Is it fun?
I am having a lot of fun, hosting this amazing thankfulness chain every week.I get to meet wonderful bloggers and read their stories.
When I wrote about keeping a gratitude journal ,I read several articles on practicing thankfulness. Some resources said write daily.Some said monthly .But most said write weekly .It makes it doable and useful.That’s what I discovered with this.
Writing weekly thankfulness post is like a breath of fresh air .
A pick me up in the middle of the week.
So what am I writing this week?
I am writing about 10 Things that makes me thankful to be human
I am able to appreciate the finer things in life .Enjoying a comfortable bed ,great good, good book and beautiful people makes me thankful for this chance to appreciate.
I am able to feel
Love and loss .Pain and joy.Happiness and sadness
I am able to empathise .
Being happy for someone’s happiness .Feeling my child’s pain like my own.That’s the bittersweet part of being human.
I am able to enjoy nature’s beauty
What would I do ,if I didn’t have my plant friends ?
They make me smile with their beauty ,grace and utter selflessness.
I am able to learn .
Learning new things everyday makes life a lot of fun.Would I be able to learn so many things ,if I wasn’t a human ?
I am able to read books.
Is there any other greater joy ?Reading and reading even more .That’s something only humans do.Never heard a camel enjoy a book ,did you ?
I am able to paint.
The creative arts are our way of expression. If I was a cat ,could I still paint?
Maybe. But would probably find it difficult to source paint and stuff.
I am able to atleast try to make this world a better place.
As a human being, if we all did our own work well ,things would be lot different.
Unlike animals .They can’t really do much for the world .
I am able to make friends.
Good friends are like great books and delicious chocolate rolled into one. Friends are truly the family we choose.
I am able to say thank you to God for making me human being.
Yes that’s a very special “thank you”.
For the life you have given me For the opportunities you put in my path. For the challenges you bless me with.I thank you for all of them.
It’s because of my smiles as well as my tears ,that I am ,who I am today.
