Be grateful

Imagine this, you somehow find yourself stuck in an island, by yourself, on your own. In the midst of all the stress and chaos in your mind on what you should do, hunger takes a toll on you. You ought to survive and so you see a coconut tree.

You do not know how to climb a tree, and so after countless struggle and immense pressure, you finally get to the top and get yourself coconuts. Once reaching down, you realize you do not have a knife, to peel and to cut the coconut. A simple thing, a knife, you do not have one. And so you look around, search for hours, for an object you could make sharper and turn it into a knife.

After more hours of searching and eventually sharpening, you find and make one and you are then able to peel, cut the coconut so you could get its precious drink.

Today, right here right now, a knife is a few seconds away from you if not minutes. Yet we use it every day in our lives like it is merely a thing to be cherished, well, maybe it sounds funny to think of it as so, but if you learn how to appreciate these little things in life, you may just realize how precious your life is already, be gratified and find happiness.

And It is being grateful or in a state of gratitude that โ€˜informsโ€™ the universe that you know what you desire already exists but beyond and above that, you are very much grateful for what you have first and so it puts you in the right frequency to get your humble self into receiving more.

I mean it when I say this, the feeling is absolutely mutual.. having had the honor of connecting with you and seeing your work, your gift come forth.. its like, like… you know how ‘pixie dust’ if spread upon someone can get them all flying…

          We always aim for the sky when we are out to get success,
          For that, we have to fly..

          Like a fairy, yourself and your work does just that. Thank you for letting us channel inspiration through you and your work. Continue being you Mentje, we need you to! – Cezane

  2. It happens very often that we do not want to look beyond our eyes. Laziness or inactivity, does not let us see the simple things in life that can help us to be happy. Serve your exhibition to make us reflect to look inside. Your contribution is good.

  3. This is a wonderful gentle reminder to appreciate where we are in life- regardless of how โ€œgoodโ€ or โ€œbadโ€. Iโ€™ve been experiencing hiccups here and there with the car lately. I began to let the negative thoughts cloud my mind for quite some time. Then, I thought- are my issues really that bad? It can always be worse. Repairs may be costly, but I have the means to have the car repaired. Additionally, I do not have to rely on public transportation as my family helps out as needed… Lyft and Uber have been lifesavers also. Your post simply puts things into perspective- โ€œyou can do anything in the world… just be GRATEFUL โ€œ๐Ÿ’–
