When we become sad it’s mostly because we don’t take out time everyday to practice gratefulness. When we focus on what we don’t have rather than what we have, we become depressed or sad.
Make A List
To be aware of how blessed we are, we can start writing a list on 30 matters we are grateful for, with the reason for you being grateful at every point. I promise you, if we do this every time we feel sad, it will change our mood to contentment, when we re-read the list after we’re done.
What do we take for granted?
That we are healthy. We have fresh air to breath. We have a home. We have security. We have freedom to practice our religion. We are educating ourselves. We have people around us that cares for us. Allah made us muslims. We believe in Allah. He loves us. We pray to Him. He relieves us from our difficulties and distress. We have vehicles that are easily available when we want to go somewhere. The list goes on.
As our paycheck is raised so does the quality of our wants increase. If we would always think about what we want, nothing will ever be good enough. iPhone started off with iPhone 3. Now it has been improved to a iPhone 6. In a few months a better version will be sold. The development of the society won’t stop. It’s a never-ending race.
Things Doesn’t Matter
When we take time to remember what we are blessed with and why. The things won’t matter. But the people and the moments we spend with our loved ones, will make us feel cherished and loved.
