Gratitude turns what we have into enough. We spend so much time focusing on what we don’t have, we tend to under-appreciate the incredible things we have right under our noses. You may not always get what you want, but in retrospect, you’ll realise you’ve always had what you needed. You’ve made it this far, after all.

Here's a poem from my poetry book 'A Journey of a Thousand Steps'.

One of the greatest lessons

I learned from many a book

I asked where to find happiness

And they told me where to look

The answer is so simple

But can take you by surprise

You will find pure happiness

Right before your eyes

But it will be hard to find it

Without the right attitude

On your quest for happiness

You must express gratitude

It’s not often that we notice

How we lead our lives with greed

We focus on the things we want

And not the things we need

But a gem is often hidden

A blessing can be in disguise

Most of the time we are more blessed

Than we even realise

I find that expressing gratitude

Helps individualise each day

By focusing on the little things

That make it memorable in its own way

You might give thanks for your health

Or a nice hot shower

A kind message from a friend

Or receiving a bunch of flowers

When you start to focus

On all the things that make you smile

You’ll start to realise you have so many things

That already make your life worthwhile

It’s not happy people who are thankful

In fact it’s the other way

It’s thankful people who are happy

Each and every day.
