Say thanks even for negative things in your life

When things go wrong, when we’re not happy, when people are mean to us, when we are torn down by the dozen poisonous arrows of everyday life … we don’t want to say thank you. But in truth, this is the time when it matters most.When life gets you down, when you are hurt or angry or confused or frustrated, take a moment to stop and close your eyes and find things to be thankful for. Your health, your family, your job, the house you live, the fact that you’ll have a next meal, the beauty of the world around you, the good people in your life. Whatever you can think of, be thankful for them … and express that gratitude somehow. Realize that all is not bad in this world, and be happy for that.And then, when you’ve mastered that skill, think of the negative things in your life … and give thanks for them.

That person who was mean to you? Thank them for teaching you patience and understanding.

That person who hurts your ego? Thank him for teaching you humility.

The natural disaster you went through? Thank it for reminding you of what is important in life.

The illness you are going through? Thank it for making you stronger.

Anything negative in life is teaching you something. Just say thanks to negative things in life.
