I have fallen in love with the daily action of gratitude and really taking a moment to be still to acknowledge and be grateful for what we have in our lives. Everyday it's so easy to get caught in what we want, what we lack and why things are not working for us but I have learnt over time to shift my mindset and focus on all the wonderful things I have in my life.
I encourage you to do the same. This amazing thing happens once we start to focus on what we have and what we are grateful for, like magic, more things show up in our life that we can be grateful for. As you eat your dinner tonight say thank you to the universe for the food you are eating and how lucky you are to have a dinner to eat (over half the world's population live on less than $2 a day). If your mindset is that you have nothing to be grateful for you just need to change that mindset and see all the wonderful possibilities that are around you.
What are you grateful for? I'd love to hear it.
Today, be grateful. Be grateful for your favourite music, for movies that make you feel good, for your phone that connects you with people, for your computer and for the electricity that lights up your life. Be grateful for air travel flying you everywhere. Be grateful for the roads and traffic lights that keep the traffic in order. Be grateful to those who built our bridges. Be grateful for your pet, for your child, for your loved ones, for your eyes that enable you to read this. Be grateful for your imagination. Be grateful that you can think. Be grateful that you can speak. Be grateful that you can laugh and smile. Be grateful that you can breathe. Be grateful that you are alive! Be grateful that you are YOU!
Be grateful that there are two words that can change your life.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
