Grateful For the Shade

Grateful thoughts can be likened to the shade on a blistering hot day

The thought ‘grateful for the shade’ comes to mind as we’ve been experiencing such harsh and burning times! When I find myself wanting to groan and moan, I remind myself to be happy for the shade, the so much needed shade. I hark back to that feeling of finding the relief and embracing the shade after exposure to the scorching sun. I often find it easier to complain, especially on days when we have a copious number of things to do. I try to imagine the day when we cannot do and ponder if I would still complain. I want to be grateful for the shade and embrace a world filled with appreciation, contentment, and thankfulness.

When you hot and bothered,  

 life burning and scorching with problems

I hope you can find relief and embrace the shade

When you feel troubled and facing difficulty,

You also overwhelmed and facing sweltering issues

I hope you can find comfort and relief in the shade of a tree

“Gratefulness will enhance your life as you learn to appreciate the love, beauty and wonder in your world”

Persistence

When describing myself the thought of ‘persistence’ comes to mind. Sometimes I’m patient, I can continue with tasks at hand and I love how words like tenacious, persevering, continuing, constant, patient, diligent are all similar to the word persistence. So, I want to aspire to be more persistent, but always to be persistent in a positive way.

I have been writing blogs, persistently over five months and hope that through my persistence in writing that I have brought some inspiration, even if it is only to some. I am aware that writing these blogs persistently could be annoying to some people (hopefully not) but I comfort myself that there is a choice and one can choose not to read my blogs. To be persistent in finding fault, to nag and just being negative all the time is definitely not what I want to aspire to. I do want to be positively persistent in aspiring to inspire.

Imagine a world where everyone is persistent in showing gratitude every day. This made me realise that I can start with myself if I want to see ‘persistence in gratitude’ in this world. I can start by being persistent in showing gratitude every day. I hope by being persistent in showing gratitude that I’ll be able to connect with my inner wisdom that can but only help me to live a more fulfilling life.
I understand that life happens, but being able to stick to practicing gratitude especially during these challenging times is positive persistence personified. Blessed are those who persistently find gratitude in everyday life!

I am thankful that I’m still able to persistently write these blogs and I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all for reading my posts and for your considered comments.
