Have you been thinking about what it takes to live a joyful life? The fact is, difficulties happen in our lives. So how can we stay positive despite all those difficulties?

An important key, I believe, is being grateful . If you are grateful, you will see the world differently. You will see that there are good things behind everything that happens. You will realize that your life is wonderful, and you will be joyful.


so how can we be a grateful persons ??

or

what must we realize from our lives to be grateful ??

Being satisfied what has happened to us and what we have !
Sth that happends in one's life , that person has to know and realize that he deserved it ! I even do not åll it a misery .
God paves the way for us , but the person who makes it difficult is the human , himself by the fate of sins .

hello angel , 

you are very right dear , we have to open our eyes to see the good things our your life

We tend to see the bad things that happen in our lives but overlook the good things. That's sad. Open your eyes and be observant of the good things. Even small things matter. If someone calls you a friend, that's something to be grateful for. If a child smiles to you, that should remind you that hope is always here in this world.

thank you so mutch for the nice comment .

While not everyone goes through issues because they deserve it - think of children, for instance... - I think the best way to be a grateful person is by turning problems into any other thing but problems themselves. I mean... If you keep whining over those situations, things will just get worse. Sense of humour and a practical viewpoint helps you make fun of the problems you may have and, as a result, they will become a past page, they'll be history. And you will be grateful for being a survivor.

But the first thing to keep in mind to be grateful is to forget the idea that you deserved to suffer. ;-)

nice !! 

i putted that but in different way : Understand that there are positive things behind all the bad things  ,that happen bad things give you valuable lessons you should be grateful for. When you have this mindset, it's not difficult to see the good things you could get out of something bad. This way you will always have a reason to be grateful.

but you gave us very new idea : forget the idea that you deserved to suffer

thank you so mutch for the very nice comment

Hello Hafida! For me being a grateful person, in spite of obstacles in our lives, we should count our blessings whom God had given us and to be a blessing to other people too like showing concern to others, not only giving donations but praying for them.

hello dear Jinkee , 

yeah i agree with you , You will be grateful if your mind focuses on what you have rather than what you don't have . By giving, your mind will focus on what you have rather than what you don't (you can't give something you don't have, can you?).

thank you dear for the nice comment 

superb

just that !! 

i can't accept , i want your wise words 

hello fahim , 

yeah this a good point friend : Realize how rich you are and what a healthy and prosperous life you have and too mutch things we cannot see them .

thank you for the nice comment 

And sharing what we have with those who don't have. That happiness they reflect makes us reflect how fortunate we are!

you are very right 

thanks

all the great persons agree for two things we should do it if we want be great   should always be trying never give up for any difficult against us and we should always be positive
