Saturday, March 16th, 2013 Focus: I owe myself to make the most of the life I am living, and to live in gratitude.

While it may not be possible to be happy every day, learning to steer the mind towards that direction is still possible. The mind may cause great suffering. But it can also be used to create a beautiful life, once mastered and used properly.

Every single of us has reasons to feel sorry for ourselves. Every one of us has suffered. But life doesn’t owe us anything. We only owe ourselves, to make the most of the life we are living, of the time we have left, and to live in gratitude.

The same view you look at every day, the same life, can become something brand new by focusing on its gifts rather than the negative aspects. Perspective is your own choice, and the best way to shift that perspective is through gratitude, by acknowledging and appreciating the positives.
