The one thing that makes life better is gratitude. Our words carry tremendous energy. Living and feeling with a sense of lack in your life, you are going to create more lack. By focusing on gratitude and the many wonderful gifts you are given every day, you will surround yourself with more positive energy and bring more joy into your life.
Before my feet touch the floor in the morning, I thank God for another day. It is not only the obvious things to be grateful for, but, also the not so obvious things. Did someone smile at you today? Did you see the sky today? Did you have clean water to drink? Some days it may be difficult to find something to be grateful for, we all have days like that. But, on days like that it is even more important to change your energy and find something to be grateful for. Try to expand the feeling throughout your body and heart. In difficult times being grateful will change your perspective and it will allow more happiness in your life.
On the mirror in my bathroom, I have an index card with the following saying, “I am grateful for what I have and I welcome all the gifts this day will bring”. Isn’t that a beautiful way to start a day?
Try this experiment this week:
- Get a journal or a sheet of paper.
- Write down 10 things that you are grateful for.
- Commit to an action plan and read the list them out loud every day for a week.
- At the end of each day, try to add 3 more items to your list.
- Continue saying them out loud.
How did you feel at the end of the week? Gratitude is the one thing that can make life better.
