How often are we in gratitude? We often get caught up in complaining about our lives that we forget how blessed we really are. Many of us have lots to be thankful for, but we sometimes caught up in playing the victim role – feeling like a victim to our particular circumstance. Sure, life has its hardships, and everybody goes through their struggles. What we fail to realize is that these struggles are only experiences, and opportunities for greater growth. If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. If you view your hardships as experiences without any judgement towards them, as stepping stones and learning curves, you will then understand why these experiences are there and be provided opportunities to change the circumstances in your life that do not resonate with you.
There are many people on the planet who do not have access to food and water. They face the possibility of death everyday because of global conflict. Placing ourselves in a space of gratitude is something all of us need to do more often.
This is an amazing video of an 8 month old baby hearing for the first time.
This is another similar heartwarming video, and it puts a lot into perspective. Her name is Sammie Hick’s, and this is the first time in her life that she was able to hear. She was born with a genetic mutation that cause her to lose her hearing as a baby. She was recently fitted with a cochlear implant (same as the baby), a bionic ear that simulates hearing. It’s designed to directly stimulate the auditory nerve, bypassing the damaged part of the ear. The emotional response by Sammie is also extremely touching.
I hope these videos put a smile on your face 🙂
