Pause, take a moment, and let these words process through your mind "I am Grateful For................."
Close your eyes, let your curiosity flow, and reflect on the first thought that comes to mind. What are you grateful for? Take this exercise even further and list five things on paper. Start your day by expressing gratitude. It will fill your day with joy and welcome abundance into your life.
Be Grateful For All That You Have. Live in harmony.
Gratitude helps you live in peace , love, and joy. Being grateful for the abundance you have received is the best insurance that more things will continue to come. Taping into gratitude can sometimes be difficult to do since the mind naturally gravitates to the negative biases. This can be quite difficult to put into practice when your life throws you unexpected surprises, challenges, and tribulations making you feel like you've hit a dark road. There was a point in my life which felt this way. Life had thrown me with so many challenges that I eventually lost count. One fall after the next, one hit after another. The ongoing resistance, pride, and #ego became too much to bare; and so I let go. I stopped resisting to what the universe was communicating to me.
My resistance on these life #lessons were a result of my lack of gratitude towards what I already had in my life. My focus was directed on the things I did not have leading me to loose sight of what was already in front of me. I was full of abundance, and I did not even notice it.
The moment I gained a higher perspective, my life began to change dramatically. It changed with a simple act, showing gratitude for all the #abundance in my life. Life became kinder, full of joy, with wonderful surprises, and good fortune. Even my perspective on my struggles changed. I was grateful for my #challenges and #tribulations for being my best teacher. I began to view them as gifts which have taught me lessons, self #compassion, wisdom, and resilience.
Practicing gratitude can begin with focusing on what's working in our lives. Giving thanks to the prosperity we currently have. Grateful people are happier, less stressed, and are more satisfied in their lives. As human beings our birthright is to lead #happy and satisfied lives full of #love, #light, and abundance. We can start by being grateful to our senses for helping us connect with and enjoy the world. Gratitude for our family and friends, despite the distance that the current circumstances may represent. The people who brighten our light. Who support us, console us, during times of need. Bring us laughter, great conversation, connection, and joy. Our home. the food we eat, the water we drink. The air we breath. All of this is abundance.
