DTube Exclusive Video #97: Approaching EVEN the Unexpected with Gratitude!

in dtube •  3 months ago


I truly believe that gratitude can help us see the light in any situation. And what better situation than that which we do not expect, nor want. A friend of mine just found out that she received this huge opportunity and has to move back home to Europe, when we were supposed to spend the next number of months exploring a new country we both just moved to. Funny how your plans for months shift just with a single email arriving in your inbox.

BUT. This is a major opportunity, and thus, we must be grateful! Also, we can be grateful for the time that we DID HAVE to explore and film, rather than regret the time that we won't have.

Life truly is about embracing what we do have come our way...and learning to let go of the things that don't. Because who knows if those things that don't come our way weren't meant to for good reason?

About 2 months ago, I made a video about losing 2 friends in one week, in separate accidents. Forget the situation I described above....that was truly unexpected and tragic. And it was hard. Really hard. But, even then, since they passed so young, again...the focus became on appreciate the time, the adventures, and all the memories that WE DID HAVE together, rather than what was to come.

This is the story of our lives: there will inevitably be unexpected moments. But it is all about how we respond to them that really counts...it's about how we take them on that truly matters.

@jumpmaster, Yes, whatever situation it is, we have to hold the essence of Gratitude because in that way we can understand the situations in better way and we can enjoy small things in life. And one point i really liked and that is, sometimes we intended something to happen but if it's not then we dissapoint, but may be it's not good for us who knows. And unfortunate to hear about your friends and praying for the rest in peace for those souls. And good to hear this message.

Thanks for your thoughts @chireerocks! And for your prayers for my friends and kind words as well! I agree, the time may not be correct for something, even if we may think it is. That's why we must trust the process and remain grateful throughout.

Sounds good! It was a bit rushed this morning because I won’t have WiFi for most of the day but I think you’ll dig it 💯

Gratitude is the key to happiness. Usually we will just feel how important and meaningful someone is when we lose him. Success for you.

Well said! Totally agree. Those things we lose make us realize how lucky we are to ever have had them. And the same goes for people we care about.

Yep, it comes down to a shift in perspective and also taking on that attitude of gratitude. Adversity isn’t easy, but if we approach it with the right mind set and have our armor equipped ahead of time, we are then ready to embrace the struggle and come out stronger on the other end.

Exactly, because the power of our thoughts and our outlook is greater than we think. It allows us to take on and also overcome challenges.
