What are the 5 things you are grateful today?

I was going through my 2010 bucket lists and wanted to talk about one of them- “5 things that I am grateful for today.”

What are you grateful for today?

Think about just even 5 things that you appreciate at home, at work, or both.

My list for today is,

1. I am grateful for supportive people around me – from my previous co-workers and boss to those whom I met through social media networking. They have given me great advice and shown a wonderful mentorship for me.

2. I am grateful for my physical, emotional, and mental strength -no matter what happens, I know that I will survive, never give up, but get up and keep on going.

3. I am grateful for my whole family, especially my mother who has been fully supportive of her “crazy” daughter who is living across the ocean from all of family members.  – My mom always think I am “crazy” in some sense. 🙂

4. I am grateful for having an opportunity to be alive and experience what life offers.  I am truly grateful for every single moment that I am alive.

5. I am grateful for living in a transitional era with such an innovative Web 2.0 – I have met some amazingly intelligent and interesting people through LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. We are totally living in a flat world.

Think about what you are really grateful and have a moment to embrace them.

Say “Thank you” to those who support you no matter what.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events.Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
