Value already yours

When you take something for granted, you can quickly forget that it’s even there. If you take it for granted long enough, it may in fact be gone the next time you look for it.

Why is gratitude so very powerful? Because it keeps you connected to all the good things in your life.

Don’t let the immense value that’s already yours wander away because of neglect. Take time to remember, take time to celebrate and be grateful, and take time to say thank you.

Instead of continually wishing for more, take a loving and thankful look at all that you already have. By sincerely appreciating what’s already yours, you can build upon it to reach any dream you could possibly imagine.

Make it a habit to reflect each day on how truly fortunate you are. It is your awareness that enables your richest blessings to continue unfolding and expanding throughout your world.

See the beauty that’s already there, and the value that’s already yours. It is more than enough to propel you positively and meaningfully forward.
