Mindfulness and daily gratitude practice teach us not to take things for granted. It teaches us to live in the moment, have compassion, and appreciate what we have. All the blessings we have need to be celebrated, and all the challenges that come make us stronger and resilient.

Take time to pause for a while and think about what you have taken for granted. Appreciate them and be thankful that you have them in your life.
