Be Grateful For What You Have
Being grateful for what you have is a sure-fire way to attract more things to be grateful for. I was inspired to do this writing after looking at my brand new cell phone right now and thinking about how it came to me.
On Christmas day, I saw my cousin Mike who happily/excitedly showed me the brand new Verizon LG cell phone he got for Christmas. As Mike was showing me his phone, I thought “I want a cell phone like Mike’s”. At the time I was using this old prepaid cell phone I had that made me embarrassed every time I pulled it out. Some of my friends would even make fun of me when they would see it as it was that old. Not only was it old but it was a prepaid phone which made me feel slightly insecure every time someone asked me which phone service I was with. A few days after Christmas, as I was pulling my cell phone out, I thought to myself, “Enough with that sh**. I have a phone that works” and proceeded to tell myself how grateful I am that I have a phone that works and allows me to call people. Every time I would see my cell phone I would now be grateful for it. After a few days of that exercise, pulling out my cell phone was no longer an issue.
So what happened?
Around two days ago, my Dad mentions that he has been paying the cell phone bill for this teenage boy that he has been helping out. As the kid is moving, and doesn’t need the phone, my Dad tells me I can have the phone when the kid returns it. When the phone was returned, there was a big crack down the front of the screen making the screen unreadable. I called Verizon and they rushed me out a new phone. After looking at my new phone and seeing how nice it is, I just realized it is the same phone as my cousin Mike. Pretty cool eh?
So start being grateful for what you have. You’ll be in the same vibration you would be in if you had nicer stuff. As you’re on that higher level, the universe will send you things, situations, circumstances, and events that match up with your new vibe.
