“Gratitude is the key to unlocking a more open and rewarding perspective on life. Feelings of appreciation are always accompanied by the elevation of one’s state of life and the broadening of one’s perspective. And, the more our life expands, the more profound our sense of gratitude becomes, to the point where we can feel appreciation even for the problems we face in life.”

You may be thinking that it is craziness to appreciate your problems! After all… they are called ‘Problems’ for a reason!
Think about it for a minute… Without problems, you would remain stagnant. There would be no growth. You could not (and would not) develop any further than you have. You would not be overcoming any obstacles. There would be no achievements.
Understand that it is a ‘problem’ for a young child to walk. When s/he is crawling around on the floor and sees everyone else walking upright, that little
one has a huge problem. What if s/he gave up?
Enjoy your problems – there is more for you just past them!
