Life is beautiful and full of things to thank for, to appreciate and to smile about.

Once we start noticing them, and focus on them instead on what we don’t have or what might go wrong, we’ll live happily, peacefully and will bring out the best in us.

Here are 20 reasons to be grateful for every single day:

  1. You can find your passion and follow it.

Nothing stops you from taking the time to find out what it is that you’re passionate about, and then dedicate time to it daily.

That will make you become a better version of yourself, improve in any other area of your life too, and be constantly inspired and full of energy.

  1. You’re given this day and can do whatever you want with it.

Instead of thinking about every new day as the same old routine, why don’t you see it from another point of view?

For the gift it is, the beautiful opportunity to spend it however you like and do great things with the time given.

  1. You can always change and be a new person.

Whatever it is that you’ve done wrong or don’t like about yourself, you can start your transformation at any step of the journey. Just decide to do so and find the will to stay consistent no matter what.

Soon you’ll find yourself changing for the better. And others will notice it too.

  1. You can set goals and achieve them.

Dream as big as you want. You can still turn into reality the ideas in your head.

Great determination and focus is needed, of course. But nothing stops you once you’ve taken the decision to change.

  1. There are people in your life who love you.

Remind yourself of that every now and then and you’ll have a reason to smile. These people are ready to do anything for you, but you tend to take them for granted. So change your attitude towards them. Start appreciating them more.

  1. You have some great qualities.

Another thing to concentrate on and be happy about.

Stop feeling bad about your negative sides. Embrace the good ones.

  1. You’ve got the chance to make up for all your mistakes.

No matter how many times you’ve failed, you can make up for it.

Get out there and do something good for the people you hurt, say sorry, build something new if you ruined something old, be good if you used to be bad, etc.

That itself is something to be thankful for, as second chance is always an option and it’s always beneficial if you try to fix things and do it right this time.

  1. All the information you need is a click away.

Stop taking the possibilities the Internet offers for granted. Use it to learn stuff, entertain yourself, help others, make money, show your work in front of others, form relationships, etc.

  1. You’ve had successes.

Don’t forget that you’ve had your good moments. Smile about that. They are the proof you need that you can achieve much more if you have the right mindset.

  1. You can enjoy this day.

In whatever situation you find yourself, you can still experience the day and smile.

  1. You can face your fears and thus bring some adrenaline in your life.

If you find yourself in a rut, get out and do something that scares you.

And don’t forget to appreciate the fact that you can always do that, you just need to find some willpower.

  1. Possibilities are everywhere around you.

So notice them and take them. Then make the best of what you got.

  1. You get to spend time with interesting people.

The world is full of extraordinary people. And if you’re open to new friendships, you will meet some amazing passionate souls that will encourage you to go after your dreams, will share your opinion, will want to work with you and create something great.

  1. You’re an individual.

Your thoughts, experience, opinion, values, ideas, goals and dreams are one of a kind. No one else has them. So make the best use of them you can.

And never stop appreciating how unique you are.

  1. You can create.

You’re given the opportunity to write, paint, build, design, edit, make, collect, etc. And you can get that product/information/work/creation and share it with others. Or even turn it into your career.

How great is that?!

  1. You have the potential to achieve great things.

All you need is a little faith.

You’re destined to greatness and no one can take that from you. But if you think you’re average and there’s nothing you can do to change, then you’ll remain in that place forever.

  1. You’re constantly growing.

There are so many ways to gain knowledge, improve, try new things, etc. With every new day you grow spiritually and mentally.

  1. You can make a big change in your life at any moment.

Taking risks is your right. You can do the most ridiculous, stupid, illogical things today and turn your life around and still make the best of it.

  1. You can believe in the impossible, and make it possible.

Another amazing thing about human beings is that if they open their mind and expand their horizons, they can believe in the impossible.

  1. You’re alive.

Many people aren’t. Many won’t be tomorrow. So thank for being right here, right now. And seize the day.

These are just 20 of all the beautiful things to be grateful for that we see daily. What else can you think of?
