246. Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you want. If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

 Be thankful that you don’t know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

 Be thankful for difficult times. During those times you grow.

 Be thankful for limitations, because 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 if you let them.

 Be thankful when you are tired and weary, because it means you’ve made a difference.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
