Gratitude #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Cultivating Happiness. Today, G is for Gratitude.


55 Fiction

Hardships have hit me like waves lashing against the boulders.

One wave disappeared and another one shaped up to knock me down again.

They knocked the wind out of my sails.

Misery and disappointment followed me everywhere.

They changed not only me but my world.

Yes, they’ve turned the wounds into wisdom, struggle into sapience.

A Word for the Wise


Reminding yourself of what you’re grateful for in life helps you appreciate what you have. A spirit of gratitude will bring us true joy and great happiness.

  1. And there are two ways of looking at a half filled glass. The optimism and gratitude helps us in staying firm for long. It has reminded me of a poem ‘colorful’ I had written long time back… So very well expressed that too in a few words…

  2. I think that until my dentist finds out why I have toothache on both sides of my jaw, I am entitled not to find anything good in the day, other than the few hours when the ibuprofen actually takes effect – which is when I can get my writing done. In case you think I’m a wimp, it’s been four weeks now. Or actually more, because I’ve changed dentists from the one who caused the trouble in the first place. So it’s actually three months.
    So the good thing is finding you so I could let off steam πŸ™‚
    But I agree with you in principle!!

  3. Agree with you.. But I seldom seem to be applying it in my daily life;).. It is also said, instead of focussing what makes one unhappy, it is better to be grateful for the little things around us that make us happy.

  4. Every little thing we take for granted right from the food we eat to the roof above us deserves gratitude as there are those that have to struggle even for that…. very well worded Shilpa

  5. A concept that is so hard to incorporate for those who have fallen yet something that can change their outlook if they are only willing to allow it.
    I struggle to get friends to see the good side of a bad event on an almost daily basis… but we persevere, right?
    Another good take…

  6. so true shilpa, everyday may not be good…:) but there is something good in everyday. .. its how we perceive the problem that matters, none of us can escape problems in life.. ..but how we view and the attitude towards that goes a long way. I strongly believe Gratitude is the best attitude any day !!
