However, I am not here to talk about material things. This is just an interesting example of us not knowing that we have already received what we have actually wished for before (subconsciously or not), without us really remembering we did make that wish.
I own a GRATITUDE journal, where I place all of the blessings I want to receive, and also write what I have received so far. I opened it recently, and I am very overwhelmed that I have received so many blessings.
People might say, "I envy you. You have so many blessings."
All I can say back is, "Well, look at what you have and where you are right now. You've been blessed with many things as well! You got your family, friends, opportunities, and even you, yourself, are a blessing to all of us." (Yesss lalem.)
Everyone has so many things to thank for! And not everyone has what others have, because we have our own aspirations, values, philosophy, beliefs, personalities, goals, etc. Comparing what we do not have to what others have would do us no good, because we're meant to have what we have and we will have according to our own desires and dreams.
So I would like to thank God, and everyone who has touched my life.
Hey, I'm thankful I met YOU.
Happy Thanksgiving Day! :)
