This Will Change Your Life!
Gratitude Is The New Attitude!
And why shouldn’t it be? Could we make up our minds to be grateful, once and for all?
Hmmm. Often, we are overly swayed by circumstances that invade our lives, sometimes gently and sometimes forcefully. Circumstances that we see as “bad.” Daily “stuff” that we don’t like.
But, what if?? What if we allowed ourselves to embrace that all is always well? That the world is a friendly place? That, as the authors Dr. Robert Holden and Louise Hay say, “Life Loves Me”?
What if we could see “heaven on earth” even in the midst of pain?
What if we could trust that God’s grace would be sufficient for every perceived trial?
We likely would Relish the Remarkable Ride of life a little more.
Grateful people see the glass as half full rather than half empty. Or, maybe even the glass as completely full.
Ever-present Gratitude allows us to see a world of abundance waiting for us instead of a world of scarcity lurking in the shadows.
Grateful people are happier. Thankful folks are healthier. Gratitude truly is a cornerstone for Loving Ourselves to Total Wellness of Body, Mind and Soul.

The Experiment: Each day this week, find a situation or circumstance that is difficult and discover a way to re-frame it so that you can see it as a blessing. For example, if you get stuck in traffic, see it as a little extra time for you to say a prayer. If you have an especially hard day at work, be grateful for the fact that you actually have a job.
Let your gratitude flow. Practice expressing your appreciation to others more spontaneously and generously. Remember that the giver is always the receiver.
Silence Your Inner Critic: Sometimes it’s easier to whine instead of shine. You like your occasional pity party. Try the gratitude experiment anyway! You can lift your thoughts to ones of energy and wellness with a little practice. Give it a try!
