We all know that it is important to be grateful. But how many of us actually practice gratitude? No! We are more likely to spend our time worrying or kvetching about all the things that are going wrong or that are likely to go wrong. If instead, we would take time to be grateful our quality of life would immediately and exponentially improve.
Practicing gratitude means we’re focusing on all that we have – our gifts and abilities, the people who love us and whom we love, our community, all that we get to experience on life’s journey, and the many material blessings that we do have. Even in the most difficult of circumstances there is often so much that we have to be grateful for, and focusing on the good helps us to transcend the challenges. Gratitude also attunes us with the source of all goodness, and allows us to receive more of what we want.
Make a list of all the special people and meaningful things you have. Take your time and put down everything that is wonderful in your life. And have a Thanksgiving filled with gratitude!
