The guy who started all this. Entrepreneur, ultra-marathoner, tanguero, father and risk taker. I'm blogging here, but I also spend a lot of time in this marvelous space.. You're invited, by the way.

  1. too many people only see the reasons to hate life. Great idea to post a list like this. Tweeted to my 8000+ followers.

  2. Hi Dragos,
    What a beautiful list you have here. It is important to appreciate the little things so you can enjoy life to the fullest.

    It seems when you do the not so pleasant things can be handled with little interruption in your life.

    Cheers

    Peace beloved brother.

  5. @nutuba the attitude is the trigger fo the action, most of the time. Thanks for the comment 🙂

    @Celes glad you liked it and feel free to come back often, you may found other interesting things too 😉

    @Mac thanks for the retweet, I really appreciate it. The focus define our life and we create what we focus on: if we focus on the good things, this is what we’re going to have 🙂

    @BunnygotBlog the little things are little only because our ego is big 🙂 The little things are the most important, they are creating our entire living context.

    @Jay glad you liked it and you know what they say: everything is vibration so no wonder we can pick up each other vibrations some times.

    @ReikiMoon welcome to my blog and thank you for the comment. I am so happy that you shared your reasons. I sense in you courage and an unstoppable desire for living. I am honored that you chose to open your heart here 🙂

    @Jonathan you are totally right: it’s our energy that makes things to grow or to shrink. Thanks for the comment.

  6. This post was highlighted in the March 13 edition of Gratitude Watch.

    Thank you, Dragos, for continuing to promote the value of gratitude.

    @Daniel Brenton wow, thanks for the mention, I really appreciate it 🙂

    I love my life for the capacity to learn from all.

  10. @WD Favour Thanks for sharing your reasons, this is great. I think if you stop learning at any point in your life you’re heading toward a slow and boring death…

    @Peter Levin I don’t know why 77 🙂 , this is what I come up with so far. It can be 101, 222 or 777, the point is to aggregate as many reasons as possible 🙂

  11. I love my life for all the smiles He gives me every morning;
    I love my life for the smell of the fresh bread I bake;
    I love my life for all the changes I make;
    I love my life for all the courage it gives me…

    🙂 this is precious material to be shared with others indeed; so, i did feel free to post it on my own blog. Thank you.

  14. I didn’t yet get this one so am glad you sent it. I LOVE this because I SO relate to this type of thinking and it’s so refreshing to have it confirmed. People often look at me like I’ve sprouted horns when I say phrases like you have listed here. We humans all too often tend to focus on what we don’t have instead of what we DO have. To focus on what we DO have is far more powerful than we may initially realize. It can mean the difference between a dynamic, well lived life and a life that simply spirals down into more and more negativity, lack and chaos.

    You know Dragos, as I read these lists of yours (which are very good by the way) I keep thinking how they would make WONDERFUL pocket sized books with a phrase on each page. People LOVE things like that. It’s something you ought to think about. All though this list I kept feeling like: YES!!! YES!! YES!! 🙂

  15. There is an email story about a man named Michael.

    Michael is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and when someone would ask him how he was doing, He would reply, ‘If I were any better, I would be twins!’

    One day I asked Michael, How do you do it? Michael replied, ‘Life is about choices. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.’

    Sometime later, I heard that Michael had fallen 60 feet from a communications tower. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Michael was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back.

    I saw Michael about six months after the misfortune and asked him how he was doing. He replied, “If I were any better, I’d be twins. Wanna see my scars?” I declined the offer but asked him what was going on in his mind after the fall.

    ‘As I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or I could choose to die. I chose to live. The paramedics kept telling me I was going to be fine but when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses I got really scared. In their eyes, I read, “He’s a dead man”. I knew I needed to take action.

    There was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me. “She asked if I was allergic to anything. “Yes, I replied.”

    The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply.I took a deep breath and yelled “Gravity.”

    Over their laughter, I told them, “I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.”

    Michael lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude.”

    How we react to these challenges can dramatically affect the outcome, influence our health and the quality and length of our lives.

  16. This is a great list of what we should be grateful for in our lives. Thanks for writing it so I remember all the blessing I already have and have yet to receive.

    I always take a moment during to the day just to say these words silently ” I Am grateful for this day” and I am grateful for you my friend and this post.
