The Power of GRATITUDE

, , , ,

Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness. It’s the spark that lights a fire of joy in your soul.

— Amy Collette

Today is THANKSGIVING in the United States of America. A day to remember the struggles of the early settlers and how the pilgrims sat down with the Native American Indians and gave thanks together.

Having lived previously in the States, I loved this holiday. It brought people together across the divides and allowed families, friends, neighbours and strangers to sit down and over a meal to give thanks. 

Fast forward a few years into my spiritual journey and I realise that every day is the day to give thanks. Finding the things, both big and small, to be thankful for — is the true blessing. It is all too easy in our world to fall into the trap of complaining. Don’t get me wrong, I am not devoid of falling into this trap too, but when I do, I have to drag myself out pretty quickly. Complaining and blaming keeps us in a negative emotional vortex, which impacts our well-being and closes us off from seeing the good and beauty in our everyday lives. 

Shifting to embracing GRATITUDE as a daily habit is a powerful perspective shift. The lens of your focus changes and the more you look to find things to be thankful for, the more you will find. And making it a regular habit, ten minutes per day, it soon becomes the norm. You will see more of the good and less of the bad in your world.

When I wrote the book ‘Write to Heal’, it was clear to me that developing an ‘attitude of gratitude’ is a key step in the healing process. It is a powerful ally to shift negative moods and mindsets. 

How do I know?

Well, because I have tested it in my own life, and when I make it a daily habit to write my gratitude list, my life shifts too. I feel happier and lighter. I see more good in the world than bad. I see the potential in people. I find that I can deal with ‘blips’ easier because I know they are only a minor bump along the road of my life journey.

Why not try it out for yourself?

Start today and either observe or write down TEN things that you are thankful for in your life. Once you get started this list can quickly grow. I recommend start with TEN and do this for one month and see how your life starts to change. TEN things and only TEN minutes…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING
Today and Every Day!

With Love & Blessings
