In gratitude

I love Quora. It always has interesting questions and great answers that can lead to wonderful realisations.

Today at work, I read an article on quora about great career advice. One of the answer was from Nikant Vohra and I checked out his webpage. This lead to finding a post he wrote on how to be happier, which focussed on gratitude

It’s easy to get down in the dumps and think what’s wrong with life, but reading this made me realise that I have a lot to be grateful for.

I am grateful for having rights, which many women in the world do not have. I am grateful that I can choose how to live my life. I am thankful that I am financially independent and use the money I make to do things I enjoy as well as support my basic needs of food and shelter.

I am thankful for being alive. It’s not always easy, but it has it’s good moments. I am grateful that there is more to come – more opportunities, more crossed paths with people, more learning.
