After getting this information, one has to wonder why not be grateful? You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

Today, I’m Linking in to Laurel Regan’s post,  Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No.42 with my gratitude list for last week. I am grateful for:

1.  the  freedom and the opportunity to do the work I love to do and get paid for it (now and then!).

2. family who support and care.

3. inspiration that comes in so many ways.

4. resources that take care of our needs

5. wisdom to know how to live within our means

6. deep contentment

7. the safety, security and comfort of our home.

What are you grateful for?

  1. Love ur list, Corinne. One needs to be grateful to the small things given to us by life and give freely in terms of life, love and what’s not. Loove the chart. It makes the post double attractive. I am grateful for this post:)

  2. Hi Corinne 🙂
    That is such a good list you have.
    Your infographic finally explains the reason why I have such a low BP 😛

  3. Lovely infographic, Corrine ! Gratitude does have a wonderful effect on one’s personality, attitude and of course on the lives of those around them.

  4. One must be grateful for whatever one already has. Of course, there’s nothing wrong in aspiring for whatever one doesn’t have. However, one should not make the realization of those aspirations the be-all and end-all of life.

  5. Loved the graphics and so many facts to ponder upon. As they say ‘count your blessings’.
    Proud moment: Reading name of India in the list 😀 🙂

  6. I’m grateful that my mom is getting better..It’s a long hard road but she’ll be fine…We’ll make her…I was angry a few days ago at the unseen power but I’be decided to move on and fight..It will all be fine…

  7. Love the infographic, Corinne! I’m grateful that there is nothing major with my eyes(infection), that I can resume work from next week and can even flaunt glasses and a new look 😀

  8. I love the gratitude attitude! If nothing else, it makes me feel better instantly so it’s worth consciously making an effort for that alone. Today I am grateful for another sunny day, drying my washing outside, living near the sea, the sounds of children playing, and the smell of newly washed hair. Glad to have found you on UBC!
