Attitude of Gratitude

Count Your Blessings

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the States. However, this posts relates to everyone, no matter where you live, or the time of year.

It is essential that you take the time to reflect and celebrate all that makes you unique, fortunate and what you have accomplished.

Think about it like this, the level of joy you experience in your life is in direct proportion to your experience of gratitude.

It is time to Be Grateful
You can have all the success in the world - a loving family, a nice home, a cool car, an amazing body......but if you are not aware of the happiness, fun and bliss this gives you, then despite your outer circumstances, your life will feel meaningless and empty.

At any moment – no matter how challenging those moments may appear to be -- you can choose to stop, breathe and create gratitude, by asking these four simple questions (written by Coco Fossland)

1. What complaint, belief, or excuse can I surrender right now to feel closer to gratitude?
2. What can I be grateful for right now?
3. What is the lesson or wisdom of gratitude at this moment?
4. What action can I take right now to let in the feeling of gratitude?

Abraham-Hicks says: “Every time you appreciate something, every time you praise something, every time you feel good about something, you are telling the Universe: ‘More of this, please.’

You need never make another verbal statement of this intent, and if you are mostly in a state of appreciation, all good things will flow to you.”

What could be more powerful than that?

What are you grateful for?

Each of us, has literally, a never-ending stream of reasons to be grateful. Create your list today.

I am grateful for....
- my family
- the ability to experience their unconditional love
- the ability to connect with and share Tyler's joy of the little things in life
- having a husband who can see the very best in me
- having friends who support my highest good
- having the opportunity to give to others
