5 Things I am Grateful for This Christmas!


1. GOD:god

God has been nothing but kind to me. More generous to me than I could have ever imagined. I thank God for bestowing upon me the art of writing and Love to spread happiness to everyone. God made me realize that no matter what, he is always watching over me. So I should never be naughty. naugy

He made me see that only selflessness and the desire to help people will take me a long way.

PS:Yes, he says, Miracles do happen 🙂

2. Family & Friends:

My family and friends are total rockstars. They sing, they dance and can totally make you have the time of your life. They love me unconditionally and know how to have fun in life. Over everything they are always there for me and have something nice to say to me when I am feeling down.

3. Books:

I purchased an awful number of books this year and I am every bit grateful to all the books that I read. They opened me to limitless possibilities in life. Some taught me to love unconditionally while others taught me that it is always right to raise voice against evil and dishonest people. bookssss

Some books even inspired me to write and change my perspective towards life. I have started reading a lot of a spiritual books and I am thankful from the bottom of my heart to each and every writer who wrote all these wonderful books which enriched my life.

4. My Workplace

My workplace is basically this desk and laptop and yes I am lucky to be at home, be with my family and work. The past year has taught me the importance the Giving only because of James Schaffer who is my partner now but has always been a mentor and a third parent who guided me through the dark tunnel towards the light of Giving.

5. Everything Else:

  1. Yes, we all have plenty to be thankful for. ‘Tis season for giving and unconditional love & unconditional forgiveness should be given. Of all the things to be thankful, we must surely thank our body (self) for enduring one more year without giving up or falling seriously ill.
    I wish you a merry yuletide season; may you have a still better year in 2014.
