5 things you should be grateful for in life

In this article, I am going to explain to you the things you should thank God for. I'm not saying that you shouldn't want more out of life but you need to be grateful for what you have while wanting more. We often complain about many things we don't have and forget to thank God for blessing us with what we already have. Here are the five things you should forever be grateful for.

1. Having a roof under your head

It is heartbreaking to see that there are people who sleep on the concrete floor in the streets of Johannesburg. Some people sleep under the bridge. You should be grateful for the fact that you have a place to sleep. I'm not saying that you shouldn't want to live in a luxurious apartment. You just have to be grateful that you have a place to hide your head while you are working on buying a mansion.

2. Not going to bed with an empty stomach

14 million people in South Africa go to bed hungry. It is estimated to be 800 million people in the world who don't have enough food. It is very sad to see corrupt politicians while there are people who are starving. You should be grateful for whatever you eat before bed. You should also be grateful for the fact that you have a smartphone and data to read this.

3. Breathing

Sometimes you just have to thank god for the fact that you are alive. People are dying every day because of car accidents. People are also dying because of the pandemic.

4. Having a job

44.4 percent of people in South Africa are unemployed. This includes those who gave up looking for work. You should be grateful for having a job even if you don't like it. Even if it is a low-paying job. Some people are desperate for any job they can get. Some people have degrees but are still struggling to find employment. The pandemic has made things even worse.

5. Being able-bodied

Some people were born disabled while others are disabled because of life accidents. You are able-bodied and you should thank God for that. Expressing gratitude every day will make your life easier. You will live a more peaceful and happy life.

Now it's time to hear from you. What are other things you think we should be grateful for? Or which of the points I mentioned above you don't agree with? Please leave a comment below.
