On Gratitude

Inspiration: To be grateful for everything in my life right now.

What are you grateful for?

We tend to take things for granted. We focus on what is missing in our lives rather than what we already have. When you practice an attitude of gratitude, you are saying to the world "Thank you for all that I am and all that I have. " This elevates your vibration and the ability to attract people, events and circumstances into our lives in an eloquent way. When we complain, feel bad for our predicaments, we actually create an elongated situation of what we do not desire.
This is a difficult practice, especially when you do not "feel" grateful. It is best to focus on what we do have; health, good friends, family or whatever resonates for you.

This is something I recently started on a daily basis. This helps me feel better in the midst of whatever is going on in my external world. Since the weather is becoming much warmer, I find it healing to go to the park in the morning and sit. Even for just a few minutes and really say "thank you" for what is in my life. It is also nice to take a journal or writing tablet and scribe some positive affirmations of what you would like to bring in to your world. Just like everything else, it requires practice and discipline. But I promise, it feels really healing and over time your external world will change in a very positive direction. Time to go to the park. Have a very "peaceful" day.

Warmly, Denise
