Being grateful opens the channels through which abundance flows into our lives. That is worth repeating..Being “Grateful” opens the channels through which “Abundance” flows into our lives. The simplest way to fill your life with more of what you love, need, or want is to be grateful for what you already have in your life. We can’t expect to bring abundance into our lives if we aren’t grateful for what we already have. No matter where we are in life, there is always something to be grateful for. Each day that you are alive is a day for a new beginning. Not sure where to begin, clarity comes with action–not in thought, so whatever it is you have been thinking about doing, just do it! What does gratitude do for us? Here is a short list of what happens when you live each day from an attitude of gratitude.

  • An attitude of gratitude reminds us what is really important in life. Those little hand-prints your child just left on the window you just cleaned will soon be nothing but a distant memory.
  • An attitude of gratitude reminds us of all the wonderful things we have, all the special people that are part of our lives, and can turn a bad day into a good day. Put it to the test, the next time things don’t seem to be going the way you want stop and think about everything you have to be grateful for. I bet you can’t do it without smiling!
  • An attitude of gratitude helps to heal. When we spend time each day counting our blessings, we are less stressed and when we are less stressed our bodies are better able to heal.
  • An attitude of gratitude reminds us to say thank you to everyone throughout the day and throughout our lives. Saying thank you is a simple act of gratitude and isn’t always about the words, sometimes thank you comes in the form of a smile.

Start each morning with just a few minutes looking at your life and everything you have to be grateful for, begin by being grateful that you are able to take the time to be grateful. You are alive, be alive. End each day with a few minutes of gratitude and see the abundance in your dreams.
