I am a person who always appreciates the things that have been bless with me mo matter may it be big or small. I never fail to appreciate and be thankful of the things that may come my way. At times I may ask why things have to happen to me but in the long run I would rationalized that it would always be for the good. Do you appreciate the blessing that you receive and thankful for it?

Yes absolutely! I personally feel that gratitude is the greatest form of conveying appreciation to the Divine. I know a lot of friends who get what they work at, and keep moving on, without stopping to reflect back or be thankful. And when they start cribbing when the smallest things don't work, I tell them "show gratitude for what you already have. then see how those small things will get ironed out". but no, unfortunately they reply with a "only a weakling will be happy with what he already has. there is no stopping. we must keep getting more". sigh! I feel like I'm on another planet when interacting with people like that. Greed, ego and the lack of humility that goes with that hunger for more is what comes in their way to appreciate that which they already have, I suppose. But personally, I feel the more I say thanks and am genuinely thankful for the smaller things, the bigger things seem to flow in on their own. Thanks for this useful discussion, kenchiprincess

That is really true others seems not appreciate of the blessings that was given to them and they just thrive to have more. The more you work without any appreciation you become a slave of work and money that you fail to see the small things that at times matters the most. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. Happy Mylotting and have a great day!!!

This is a habit that I have started taking on board! I'm thankful for everything that is going on in my life. I think that this is important, something to do with the Universal laws and law of attraction, I have no idea how it exactly works but I know that it does. I give thanks for absolutely everything in my life. Life itself is a real blessing. Andrew

i have been asking so many things from Him yet i've thanked only a few. i admit that i can only talk to Him whenever problems occur. but since i have experience some of the highest blows in life, i've been trying to thank Him everyday for the blessings He has given me. though i try to live much for the simple life but there are instances where one is never enough but still, life goes on and on.

It is always good to appreciate and say thank God with all that He has provided for us no matter how small or big it may be. Talk to Him at all times it doesn't necessarily mean that you will only pray when you are in need rather you have to seek and appreciate the things He has provided and you will realized that everything works for the GOOD!!

I am very thankful for all of the blessings in my life. I feel like my life is so full of blessings that I don't even deserve! There are always difficult times, but I know that the good things in my life far outweigh the bad. Sometimes I feel thankful just when I see beautiful things in nature, too. This afternoon, I was just driving to the store, and I could see the mountains off to my side. They looked so gorgeous, and it made me so thankful that we have things like that to see and enjoy each day!

That is so great to hear my friend. that is so beautiful seeing things around us beautifully that it covers up the negative things that we feel or experience. That is a great way of seeing life my friend. It is always great to appreciate the little and simple things life has to offer. Thanks so much for the response and have a great and wonderful day.

I am thankful every day for the blessings in my life and I do thank God for them every night before I go to sleep. My life has taken many twists and turns...there were times when my life wasn't a happy one and I wondered why God was putting me through what I was going through. But, I came out the other side a much stronger, more confident person and that is what lead me to the life I have now with the husband and family I love.

That is great to hear my friend. it is matter of seeing life differently knowing that no matter how bad the things that may happen today it will come to pass learning from it and making us better and wiser persons. That is what we should always be thankful to God about that He never fails to give as the strength to face the trials and challenges in life and being there for us at all times.

I always thank God for all the blessings he has given to me no matter how big or small and I think I do not have the right to question anything that is happening to me. I believe that everything happens for a reason.

You are correct of saying that we have to be grateful of everything we receive from God. That is why i always encourage my friends here to count their blessings. Be it small or great things, it is to be in our nature to give thanks to God always. Even the recession that is happening in our country, we still have to think positively because God will be the one to help those who knows how to help themselves. But despite every struggles in life , it will never be a reason for us not to thank God because ur very life belongs to Him. Happy Mylotting!

Good for you kenchi I'm like that, too. I'm always thankful of the blessings that came my way no matter how small or big they are. I also thank God for all the trials that passed my life because these made me more thankful of the blessings right after and they remind me of being imperfectly human. That through those trials the imperfections can be molded and added strength not only character but also convictions.

Yes I am thankful to each and every person who helps me out for whatever I need them for. I really feel that in this world you will hardly find anyone who really thinks good about you or blesses you. I think he is really nice to you and you should also reward him for being good to you.

Hi kenchiprincess, good day to you, well just like you, i always appriciate the things that have been bless with me. Like in the morning when i wake up, i always thank for giving me another day to enjoy life and even in the evening i also thank GOD for giving me streanght to do my duties in life, then i always ask for another day, in order to be good and replaced those bad things that i have done. No matter how big or small the blessing you receive the more important is atleast you receive than not. Here in our country in the Philippines, the only people who only receive a big blessing are those people in the government which are those corrupt politicians who are putting the money insidd there pocket and never show to other, with these it causes for our country to be down and no to increase the economy rate. But if things will change and there will be no corrupt people, our country will no longer feel the hunger and all people will be happy. For that reasons this coming election, i will be sure to the politician that i will vote, in order for my vote be more meaningful and good. I hope here in my country when the election of 2010 government official, will be change and the who must win is the truted one, that make our country be strong and more good. Well that's all my response to your discussion. I am hoping that i give a very good response to your very interesting discussion entitled "are you thankful of every blessing you receive". Happy posting and happy earning. And last is always remember to give thanks to him. . . Happy mylotting. . .

I was told when I was 16 yrs, old that I would never have children. Three specialist told me that. I have now a beautiful 16 year old daughter and a wonderful 14 year old son that I gave birth too. I was told after my first husband that I would never find anyone who would love someone like me. i met my guy now and we are perfect for each other. I have found love. I find that every day is a blessing no matter how little or big. I had a mini stroke and I am here to stay that it has opened up my eye's. I am blessed for the things I have in life and the things I don't have I did not really need them. **Peace and Love get's you through everything in Life**

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful story.

I am always very Thankful of the blessings that come my way. I feel that overall when you do not, you are often hurting yourself in the end as well. Even when things are not always going your way you are in charge as well. So if you remember to feel Blessed and Thank god for everything that you are given you will be a better person in the end as well.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I perfectly agree with what you said. It would always feel good counting on the blessings that we receive that counting on the bad things that we have experience for the good will always exceed what is not good. The way you see life and the happenings of life give a big impact on our life so it is always great to see it positively.
