I find that living in a state of constant gratefulness always provides new opportunities. When you learn to realize that every blessing and every challenge in your life is a lesson to be learned, you can avoid having to repeat the same lessons over and over again. Grasp the lesson be grateful for it and move on.
The way most people fail to learn life’s lessons is by simply living on autopilot. When you live on autopilot you tend to “go with the flow” and are constantly distracted by everyone else and by every event that you feel is happening “to you”. Instead take moments to self reflect, check in with your feelings and watch your thoughts.
Blaine Pascal once famously said “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone”. If you would choose to spend more time alone in self reflection away from screens of distraction you would find your own personal life has provided you more blessings than you ever imagined, you were just too busy to see them. Live gratefully and you won’t have to wait long for the next opportunity.
