Being grateful and thankful for your blessings is one of the most liberating thoughts you could have in today’s world. Everyone or at least, every Christian should practise a spirit of gratitude.
It is an attitude, an attitude of mind.
Magic exists, yes it does. You don’t have to travel to exotic countries to witness it. You don’t have to look for a magician to see it either. Matter of fact, you don’t have to look very far at all. You see, I believe Real Magic exists and it lies in every single one of us, you included, but it is based on a choice – your choice.
The choice of attitude you embrace.
There is real magic in having an attitude of gratitude. There is real magic in a thankful spirit.
“How?” you may be thinking.
Well, from my observations of life in my first forty years on this earth, the Real Magic of a thankful spirit (an attitude of gratitude) is that it HAS THE POWER TO –
- replace anger with love;
- choose belief over fear;
- choose peace over worry;
- choose to play part of a team than the desire to dominate;
- replace self-preoccupation with the concern for the needs of others;
- choose an open door to forgiveness over guilt;
- replace jealousy with happiness at another’s success;
- generate inspired productivity over lack of creativity;
- replace inferiorities with dignity;
- choose power over force
and the power to choose an abundance of self-sharing over lack of love.
I’m sure you can think of many others too.
This to me is what real magic is and it happens every single day in the lives of everyday people. Without any media coverage or fan-fare. This is where the real magic happens – in every person’s individual choice to have a thankful spirit. This is what the real human spirit is and what the spirit of humanity is all about.
This magic resides inside each and every one of us.
A thankful spirit and an attitude of gratitude is one of the many things that the world needs more of. I believe it allows individuals to be appreciative and content with what they have in life and to make the most of what they’ve got. I believe, being content, genuinely content, brings one closer to the elusive ‘happiness’ that everyone seems to be chasing in life.
This real magic (attitude of gratitude) has the power to empower individuals and can change each individual’s world for the better. In turn, the whole world becomes a better place. Every human benefits.
The magic rests in all humans, it rests in you and me. The only catch is that every individual has to take responsibility to make a choice, a choice to be endlessly grateful. A choice to release his or her ‘magic’ to the universe.
Do magic, Real Magic! Release the magician in you to the world if you haven’t already done so.
Before I go, I have to express my gratitude in you taking the time to read this message. I truly am grateful and I hope you are enriched in some way and it has a positive impact on your life.
Best of vitality to you!
Until next time,
