What does gratitude mean to you? Is it just that feeling you have when something good happens to you? If yes, what happens to the time when things might be falling apart? At that point, do you not forget about those little things that have made you smile before? 

This is already sounding like a sermon. Let's retrace our steps. 

Gratitude is not just a once-in-a-while feeling. Instead, it should be a consistent way of thinking that takes practice and hard work to make it part of your everyday behavior.

When we are down and things are not going the way we want, it is very easy to forget those things that matter because our focus is on the one bothering us. It is important to know that it would help not to take them for granted. 

This is not some acquire to require the desire of your conspire(wrong inspiration) post where we tell you how to be grateful for the things you have so that great things can start coming. Instead, the purpose of this post is to remind you of those things you should be thankful for, no matter what may come. 

At ArkoreWrites, we are grateful for all our readers who have been around for a while and even our lovely new readers, the writers who turned up for our call for submissions, and everyone else. This is the reason we have made a list of things to be thankful for that you can use to spark your gratitude. 

But before that, I heard someone from the backseat(literally) ask why we should be grateful. There is no greater magic to this than the fact that making a list of things to be thankful for help remind us just how many good things we have in our lives. This is especially important during times where it feels like many things are going wrong. 

Now, Here we go

As funny as some of these things might be, thinking through them, you would notice that they are one of the many reasons we once had a smile on our faces. If you would like to be more grateful as you live each day, you may find having a gratitude journal helpful so you can document moments you should be grateful for, so that during sad moments, you can look back at them and smile. 

Let me know if this post is helpful enough in the comment section.
