Life is unpredictable. The Homeless person you see today could be a Business Tycoon or very successful person in another area of life, in a few years time – but Hold that thought...
When people write quotes like the photo above, I think to myself, that it’s not enough to be grateful that we are not homeless BUT, we should make an effort to help such people. It could happen to anyone. A lot of people on the streets are graduates, people who had good jobs, but sadly either their house got repossessed or they got kicked out of their matrimonial home etc. Even if they are not graduates, they still deserve a comfortable life.
So, please consider any of the following:
a) Volunteering even just 1 or 2 hours a week to the homeless. Most Charities re-imburse transport costs.
b) Giving a donation, maybe £5 every other month, if things are tight.
c) Consider any other practical ways to help.
Think of all the times people have helped you through life’s trials.
It’s time for us, to be that Miracle for someone else. ❤
Take time to find peace in the noisy, confusion of this ever changing, stressful world. If we feel depressed, we pass it on to those around us, likewise if we have peace within us. Prayer / Meditation or simple Gratitude helps.
Have you noted?
a) When we are stressed, we snap at people and even loved ones.
b) When we are peaceful, we are a joy to be around. Strong, loving relationships.
Find time for you, or you will be running on empty, with nothing to give and no inner strength to draw from.
If you focus on the positive and have a heart of Gratitude you will find it because happy and positive feelings attract Happy and positive circumstances, opportunities, people, creative ideas that will change your life forever etc. Whatever you are grateful for, you end up getting more of.
The Mystery behind Gratitude
“Whoever has will be given more and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have even what he has will be taken away.” (found in book of Matthew – the hidden word being Gratitude)
The Key: Whoever has (gratitude) will be given more and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have (gratitude) even what he has will be taken away.
Even if you are going through trials of life, still find things to be grateful for. You can eat, you are alive, you can move etc.

Ofcourse, it’s easier said than done because the heart hurts. However, if we don’t let it go, this is what bitterness does to people:
a) Bitterness Ages people. They look at least 5 years older.
b) Bitterness attracts Negative Karma. In life we attract what we give out.
c) It makes tumours grow in the body. This can be terminal.
d) Bitterness robs the body of energy. It just saps!
What if there is bitterness towards a family member and one day they die? People start wishing they didn’t take it too far and wish they made peace with them – Too late!!…….then Pain and bitterness Round Two starts.
If this is you, let it go for your own peace and happiness.
As difficult as it may be, we have to look for things to be grateful for in any Negative situation. It keeps away harmful negative thoughts and can help attract a solution. See things in a different way.
No Job? – Be grateful you have skills to get one.
No Car? – Be grateful for public transport that helps for now. Etc. (Some people are painfully using Crutches.)
Gautama Bhuddha says: “Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learnt a little. If we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick. If we got sick, at least we didn’t die.”
You are alive and breathing. There is still hope. (◕‿◕)
Our thoughts and words are powerful and we attract what we think. As you continue to affirm that all is well and expect positive things, you will definitely attract them. Visualise things working out for you. Always have in mind that conditions will shift in your favour and expect them to.
Amazingly, they will!!
“You attract to you the predominant thoughts that you’re holding in your awareness, whether those thoughts are conscious or unconscious.” ~Michael Beckwith from The Secret. Click •••► (The Secret)
I live in London. In early January, (this month) I saw 2 women on 2 separate occasions crying quietly and walking down the road.
First woman looked Lebanese to me. Dressed in their attire. She was crying, her eyes were red and our eyes met. However, I was with a friend, holding her babies pram and we were lost – so she was listening to people giving us directions. I looked at the woman until she was out of sight.
In less than about 15 minutes, my friend popped into a shop to get food. I decided to stay outside with her kids pram. It was a double buggy and I always found it difficult to get through doors. Again, I saw another young girl, probably early 20s sobbing and carrying her shopping home. I couldn’t leave the buggy and go after her.
There are thousands like this – not just women. Men too. So, as much as possible, we should be kind to people. A smile, a kind word, a random act of Kindness, an encouraging text message etc. I have had days like that and a few times, people have been so lovely to me, not knowing what I was going through and the wonderful difference they made to my day. As much as possible, I reach out even when I’m down too.
