Gratitude is the best attitude

Gratitude is the best attitude
Gratitude really is the best attitude and is a big key to happiness. 
Often in life we focus so much on the things that we want, we forget to enjoy the things we have in the present moment and forget to be happy :)
A common statement is, “I will be happy when I get this, or when I do this or that”, and once this or that is achieved the focus is extended onto the next desire forgetting to be grateful and happy about the achievements so far. 
It is good to dream and to want to move forward in life, but this should not be at the cost of forgetting to give thanks for everything you have at this moment. 

When we stop and appreciate the things we have in our life and express gratitude we feel more happiness. 

Stop for a moment and think about everything you have in your life right now, try extending that gratefulness to everything and everyone around you and watch gratitude turn those negatives into positives and sadness to happiness.

What are you grateful for today?

Good Karma

Create good Karma and become Calmer 
In Buddhist teaching, the law of karma, explains that 'for every event that occurs, there will follow another event whose existence was caused by the first, and that this second event will be pleasant or unpleasant according to whether its cause was beneficial or harmful, to others and oneself'.

Ten ways to create good Karma
1. Make someone else feel good. A simple smile or a gesture of kindness can make someones day.
2. Spiritual meditation. 
3. Express Gratitude. 
4. Do the right thing, even when no-one is looking.
5. Listen. Take time to listen to other people.
6. Compliment someone.
7. Relax and think about why your life is wonderful.
8. Seek wisdom. Seeking wisdom helps us be wiser and when we are wiser we make better choices.  
9. Love and accept yourself and others.
10. Let go of judgments about yourself and others.
