The Prophet (SWA) said:

"How marvelous is the affair of the believer!
Everything that happens to him is good, and this does not apply to anyone except the believer.
If something good befalls him he gives thanks for it and that is good for him.
If something bad befalls him, he bears it with patience and that is good for him."
(Hadith Muslim no. 2999).

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire,If you did, what would there be to look forward to?Be thankful when you don't know somethingFor it gives you the opportunity to learn.Be thankful for the difficult times.During those times you grow.Be thankful for your limitationsBecause they give you opportunities for improvement.Be thankful for each new challengeBecause it will build your strength and character.Be thankful for your mistakesThey will teach you valuable lessons.Be thankful when you're tired and wearyBecause it means you've made a difference.It is easy to be thankful for the good things.A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are alsothankful for the setbacks.GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and theycan become your blessings.
