Woke Up Thankful

Living Thankfully

Starting off your day in the right direction depends a lot on your mindset upon awakening. The thoughts that you experience when you wake up have an influence on the rest of your day; they guide the direction in which your mind will navigate.

One of the best ways to start your day off right is to practice being thankful. It is so easy to focus on the things that are bothering you in life and lose sight of your blessings. If being thankful is a difficult objective for you, then you might want to consider mindfulness.

Even if you are battling many difficulties, being thankful reminds you of the nice and good things that are in your life; it helps you come back to a centered state of mind when you are too far down in a negative direction. It is important to remain emotionally stable in life because it helps you stay clearheaded and perform at your best.

Waking up thankful is one of the nicest feelings that you can experience: it is warmth, comfort and bliss. You love yourself when you are thankful. You feel that life is worth living every second of it. It puts you in a good mood which you radiate onto the rest of the world.

Being thankful is to live again.

Be Tender-Hearted Towards Each Other

Your Words Matter

You will always meet people who radiate anger from their heart; it flows through their bloodstream like a poisonous venom. But do not take it personally. You do not have to like these people but be mindful that they may have experienced trauma in their life, and this is the only way they know how to deal with the pain.

Your role is not to repeat the same behavior; the eye for an eye mentality is not fruitful and will not bring you peace and harmony. In fact, an eye for an eye mentality will only attract karma into your life. Keep your cool when cruel people are stinging you and brush it off; you are the good guy at the end of the day!

Learning how to be tender-hearted might be a challenge for some of us! But everyone can learn it if they want to; it takes a genuine and honest approach with yourself to be kind and loving towards yourself and others.

The DSM Ready Movement needs as many tender-hearted members as possible! We need to come together and support one another during our roughest times, collectively share our experiences and pain and grow from our mistakes. Through our tender-hearted actions, others will emulate our behavior and this is how we will turn this world into a better place.
