Becoming Prepared: Pursuit of Excellence: Learn to Be Grateful and Express Appreciation

Today, I will be focusing on becoming spiritually prepared.  In the "Pursuit of Excellence" booklet one of the goals is to, "Learn to Be Grateful and Express Appreciation". That is the topic on which I have chosen to focus on this week.

I chose this topic, because it  is something I have been trying to focus on this past month.  One idea that I have been doing and many other people have been doing is everyday, post something on Facebook that I am thankful for.  I have loved to do this, it has made me truly reflect on the blessings I have received in this life.  At times it seems we start to focus on the things we don't have or the things we lack.  We might see someone who just seems to have it all.  We then start to get down on our lives. When we focus on the bad or the things we want we can not be happy.  Nothing will seem to be good enough, because we will always see someone who has more or who is better at something.  But if we look at our lives and focus on all of the blessings and gifts that our Heavenly Father has given us we can become more content and be happier people.  Heavenly Father has given all of us specific gifts and talents. He has given all of us blessings.  Our part is to recognize those gifts, talents and blessings. We then need to acknowledge them and give thanks our our Father in Heaven and then use them to bless others.  That is was HAPPINESS is.

Some Ideas to Learn to Be Grateful and Express Appreciation:

- Post the things you are thankful for on Social Media
- Grateful Links:

***Express appreciation to Heavenly Father in Prayer.  Remember to acknowledge everything that others do for you in life and say, text, or write, "THANK YOU"***
