I have asked a few people what does it mean to them. Strangely enough it has a completely different meaning to each individual. This is what I know about gratitude…
IT’S A MAGNET FOR MIRACLES.
It’s a supernatural tool that once found will propel you and others into a space beaming with new revelations.
1. In every circumstance look for the gratitude
2. That becomes a habit
3. Habit begins to retrain the brain
4. Brain creates happy hormones (dopamine)
5. Pass on the happiness to others
Practice it. Create a GRATITUDE jar. I have noticed it changes the colours I wear, my posture, my smile, the lines on my face.
I sense people with GRATITUDE. They walk into a room and instantly the vibe shifts. It flows from them, just like dark energy does. It’s light to carry and will energise the owner. Seek it. Speak it.
So as I dig deeper into the mixed world of gratitude I uncover something about myself that leaves me glum. I realise I project so much love and gratitude for others and outward things that I never stopped to be grateful for myself.
I’m so critical of me. Fat arms, no dedication and discipline for exercise, swear too much, drink too much, stress too much, impatient and the list goes on. I struggle to believe a compliment and with all I have overcome and achieved (bucket loads) I have never stopped to think sh&$ you are brave.
So in this moment with you here, I acknowledge and proudly say to myself. I’m grateful for you Sonya.
