5 Powerful Ways Being Grateful Can Change Your Life

Inspiration

It's so easy to complain.


Like, legit, that's often my go-to, to the point where I don't even know I'm doing it. And then sometimes we have the audacity to mask it as venting. Obviously, there's this thought in the back of my mind that I used to pray for the things I'm now complaining about. And when I let that type of gratefulness and positivity go to the forefront of my mind, it's so much easier to find the good in any situation, even the ones I didn't ask for.

Here are a few reasons you should drop the attitude and count your blessings today:

​Can't Be Happy Without It

If happiness is the goal, gratefulness is the key. Like the Married With Children song says, you can't have one without the other.

Being grateful and thankful can help you get through the funk of the tough season and process what the aspects that feel like they're trying you in every step, and it helps you endure through it all. I've had to realize that once I get content in a situation that I clearly can't fix, there's so much more peace about it. And it's not about settling and just going with anything that comes to you. But when it comes to those situations that you once really wanted but eventually got comfortable with, it's easy to get complacent and not realize you're taking it for granted and no longer grateful for it. When you get into a mental space of gratitude in any situation, nothing will be able to steal your happiness and joy.

Don't stop get it, get it.

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.
