Meditations on Gratitude

Today I meditated and asked God what His will is for me. The answer that came from a truthful place inside me said "to be happy."How do I achieve that? By being grateful. Instead of focusing on what I don't have, I need to concentrate on what I do have. I listed the things in my life that I am grateful for and my 15 minute meditation flew by. It felt like Christmas in my heart. I felt warm. I so quickly fall into want, but the way to happiness is to never want. If the feelings of want creep up, I need to combat them with thoughts of gratitude for all that I already have. Seems so simple. But I need to be reminded. When I'm down the rabbit hole in my mind I can't seem to remember the way out. I put it in writing to remind myself.
