I’ve come to this realisation at the end of the day. It’s been a day  in which I have not felt particularly motivated, inspired, but rather a little sulky and tired. I thought about it and realised – something has been missing from my day! I guess I shouldn’t have given it up today……..
No, I’m not on a diet. No I haven’t given up smoking or drinking – don’t do either, anyway. And no, it’s not my tea or coffee. 
It’s just that I didn’t take my ‘shot’ of gratitude! Yes, if I’m not conscious every day of the many blessings I have; if I don’t make that effort to say a prayer of gratitude, then I’m going to end up dissatisfied and disgruntled at the end of every day.
I love what the Christian mystic Meister Eckhart said, “If the only prayer you say in your whole life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” I couldn’t agree more.
So if you find something is missing in your life – look closely you may have lost gratitude!
