A nice story to remember on Gratitude

Well, gratitude is something that is already seldom seen among individuals. We may have all the faults and failures in life, and people already tend to blame everyone for what he has gone through. Not welcoming the idea that there is more about him to be thankful for, because each person is created by God in his own unique ways.

Here's a message I got from email, which is inspirational in my opinion.

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?". Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first let me do this". He proceeded to crumple up the bill.
He then asked, "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air. "Well", he replied, " What if I will do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up , now crumpled and dirty. "Now who still wants it?" Still the hands went up in the air.

My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who do love you.

Truly inspiring? For me it is. We should never lose hope in times of downfall and be grateful for those people who stood by us in those times. Well, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those people who have been an instrument for my happiness and contentment. You guys have made my world a beautiful place.

Life is short! Break the rules! Forgive quickly! Kiss slowly! Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably. And never regret anything that made you smile.
