A few weeks ago, I read a book that went on and on about how the universe rewards in ten folds, those who were appreciative of all the lemons and of course the niceties of life. I wasn’t really sold on this particular idea because c’mon, just a few hours before, I prayed for patience and got a bank line, minutes later, my internet became terribly slow (you feel bad yet? Don’t. Wait till you hear about how my purse ended up getting snatched right under my armpit a few minutes after I left the bank). Bottom line is, life had me on a backward roller coaster that day.

Anyway, fast forward to three days later, I woke up in a really great mood (It was so good that I forgave a debt).

I texted my close friends to thank them for adding so much colour to my lifeʻs canvas. God! Iʻm full of thank youʻs on my good days. So throughout the day, I received good news like manna from heaven. Even the neighbors who always thought I was a waste of space, today, complimented me on my gardening skills (I refused to be part of the dance group entertaining at their wedding. I mean, have you seen what becomes of me when iʻm expected to move rhythmically in front of people, with lights on? Try picking a stone infront of a stray dog. Thatʻs me when the music comes on.)

So on this day, life kept me so happy, and a sudden realization dawned on me. You attract what stays and happens in and to your life. I was having a really bad day at the bank that day, after that, it was a downward spiral of bad luck that escorted me the whole day. On a different day, I woke up happy, so happy that no weapons (literally) formed against me prospered,

And I was rewarded with so many good things at a time, and this, is the magic in gratitude. Life will create a ripple of events that stem from the energy you release. If you are unhappy and grumpy and always negative , then life being the generous phenomenon that we know it to be, will throw you a million more reasons and people to make your life as difficult as possible, because what you give out comes back to you.

When you’re really grateful, content and appreciative of your environment, then your circumstances improve. Automatically, you send out a message to the universe that, thatʻs what you wish to receive, and with life, when it rains it pours. Whenever you feel ungrateful, note down a list of all the things that make you happy, so each time you begin to deflect from your positivity radar, refer to this list and TRUST.YOU.ME, it works wonders in uplifting your mood.

And when in lighter spirits, you’re sending out positive energy into the world, and that comes back to you in various forms, like answered prayers.
