Be thankful that you don't have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the beautiful times,
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
They give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes,
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
Because it means you've made an effort.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into positive,
Find a way to be thankful to your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

Well friends these are not my own words i received this in a mail and i really liked it and beleive in it so i am sharing it here with you all as well, hope you all gonna like it too.

Being thankful to our setbacks can be really really difficult, but indeed it is what we should all try to do.

By the way, I was facing some problems in opening your blog in the past few days.. did something go wrong?

"Be thankful that you don't have everything you desire"
I am thankful for that burning desire that keeps me alive. Yet I am often deceived into thinking that the fulfillment of these desires is the road to my happiness.

Thanks Samrina, I do enjoy these words.
Pefection is so ennoying.
I cannot imagine being living a perfect life.
I prefer imperfection !
That means I'm not perfect (who can be, who say that is a liar or is mad), nevertheless I may be happy.
(AhahA !)

Life is always filled with abundance, yet that abundance is not always evident. Thankfulness makes the abundance that is already there completely evident and available.
It's easy to be thankful when all is well, when life is good, when there are no difficulties or dark clouds on the horizon. Yet it is during those times when problems and hardships abound that thankfulness can bring the most value. For being truly thankful enables me to see, to appreciate, and to make full use of the very real positive value that is always there, even in the most difficult of times. Thankfulness brings real abundance out of hiding by raising my expectations in a way that is undeniably genuine. Thank you for your words. I know you say you did not write them, But the words can be lived. good luck and hope all is well for you
