There are so many things around us and in our lives that we overlook, so many blessings that we forget to acknowledge. Gratitude is everywhere. We are all so blessed in little and big ways. All we are required to do is focus.

Look around you and you will find something that you can express gratitude towards. Imagine, if we searched for all the tiniest things and moments to feel grateful for, we'd never run out of ideas. Before asking for more, let's appreciate all that we have.
