Think about our home for a minute, whether we live in a tiny apartment, a rented room or your own home, it's yours to use. It's your space.What in the world would you do without it? How would you survive?
It's remarkable to reflect on how fortunate you we are to have a home, a place to rest, a haven of potential peace.In reality most of us rarely slowed down enough to really look around, you agreed? Notice the walls and the overall environment. When was the last ..you consciously expressed gratitude for your home? Many people have never, ever, taken this step of thanks.
Take a deep breath and express gratitude for our lovely home. Despite it's imperfections, it's ours. We live in it, it protects you from the elements of hot and cold, and against everything from insects to strangers.Keep us alive and comfortable. Yet, for the most part, it is taken entirely for granted.
Take a few moments every day, for the rest of our life, to quietly reflect on the joy of having a home-whatever it looks like and however hard we work to maintain it.
You will be amazed at how good you'll feel for taking this step of gratitude. Enjoy the feelings of gratitude and, perhaps for the first time, really enjoy the privilege of having a home.
