Stepping into a new chapter in your life means leaving behind all the unsaid, all the bad and all the good that happened before that moment.
It means making room for beautiful things that will enrich your life and give it another meaning.
As you enter a new chapter in your life, remember to be grateful for everything that happened in the previous one.
The previous chapter might not have been as enjoyable as you might expect, but life is like a book.
Some chapters are really enjoyable and you want them never to end, but some are difficult to navigate and take a lot of effort to understand.
The mixture of feelings you get when you relive these chapters makes it seem like you are reading the same book again and not knowing which way it is going.
No matter how difficult the previous chapters are, remember to be grateful for everything you have been through so far.
Be grateful for all the evil, for it has taught you to appreciate the good. Be grateful for all your battles because they have made you stronger.
1. Be thankful for your good health
Even if your health is not so good, always keep in mind that it could be worse. Be grateful for what you have and try to preserve it because there are people who would do anything to be in your place.
There is always better and worse. Be grateful for the good and be grateful for the bad that has not gotten worse. And be grateful to those who have helped you preserve what you have.
2. Be thankful for your good friends
Be thankful for your good friends who were there when you needed them most. Thank them for listening to you in the wee hours, when they’ve been awake for you.
Thank them for cheering you up when you were feeling down and sharing their joy with you when you needed it most.
3. Be grateful for your mistakes
Don’t just be grateful for what you have. Also be grateful for your mistakes, for they are there to teach you lessons. If we never made mistakes, we could never learn so much.
Embrace your mistakes because they are there for a reason. Don’t be mad at yourself. Be grateful that you have learned so much from your own mistakes and you will never repeat them again.
4. Be grateful for the love you have received and for the love you have given to others
Be grateful that you have the ability to love with all your heart and with an open mind. Not everyone has the chance. Show gratitude for the love you have received and show yourself gratitude for the love you have given to others.
All of your beautiful words and acts of love have made the world a better place. Your capacity to love has changed someone’s life, and you should thank yourself for being selfless and generous.
5. Be grateful for your laughter
Enter a new chapter by remembering all those funny situations where you laughed with the people you love. Be thankful for all those moments that enriched your life and made you feel alive.
Be thankful that you have the strength to laugh even when it was really hard to think about it.
But you have succeeded in fighting your own battles and showing the world that you have the strength of a warrior and the soul of an angel.
6. Be grateful for your time
Sometimes we don’t pay as much attention to time. It feels like he’s just there and will always be there no matter what you do or say.
Be grateful for spending time with loved ones and having enough time to complete your most complex tasks.
You should be grateful for every second of your life because every second turns into minutes, minutes turn into hours and hours turn into days. And the days turn into memories and feelings of gratitude for them.
7. Be grateful for the kindness of strangers
Be grateful to all the strangers who have ever shown you the direction to a place you wanted to go. Don’t take their kindness for granted.
Be grateful to all the strangers who listened to your sufferings and assured you that all would be well but you did not have the courage to believe them. But now you see and now you believe. Be thankful for it.
8. Be thankful for your tears
When you couldn’t express yourself, your tears were always there to help you get through the most difficult situations.
Your tears replaced your words and they cleaned your soul of all negativity.
9. Be grateful for any challenges
Be grateful for all the challenges you have faced in your previous chapters. The challenges are there to challenge us mentally and physically.
Without them you can never get stronger than before.
All of your inner battles have made you ten times stronger, they have taught you to appreciate yourself and work on yourself to achieve the goals you desire.
10. Be thankful for your pain
I know it is difficult to be grateful for something that has almost destroyed you, but please find the courage to be grateful for your pain.
Know that your pain is not in vain. Be grateful for your pain because it has taught you to appreciate the joys of life.
If it weren’t for the pain, you might never know how it feels when you’re not in pain. Be grateful for becoming the person you are today and for yourself.
