How do you start your day? Do you frown or are you happy to move into a new adventure? Make a change, start your day with gratitude.
Even while you are lying in bed, when you open your eyes, thank your bed for a good quality sleep, then be grateful that you woke up and have one more day to create exactly the way you want, because you really can!
We often forget how important it is to be grateful, even when someone does something nice for us, when we thank them, we say it without attaching any special significance and meaning. But gratitude has a great healing power, strength and positive vibrations.
What are you grateful for? Try to make a list of things for which you are grateful, I’m sure you will stop very soon and ask yourself what should you be grateful for?
I reacted similarly at the beginning, when I was first introduced to the issue. We always see things that are not good, the things that make us angry, disappointed, hurt, humiliated and why we don’t feel good, but we should be grateful for those things too, because we learn from them, they are our reminders and lessons on which we still have to work on that next time we will not fall, because of these things and situations we are what we are today.
Practice gratitude. Take a pen and paper and every day make a list of ten things that you are grateful for. It may seem difficult, but you’ll see how this exercise helps to understand how you are present in your life, and that indeed you have many things to be grateful for. As your list expands you will become aware of more and more things to be grateful for and that will surely boost your confidence to do even more things that you’ll be grateful for.
Gratitude teaches us a new dimension and opens our eyes to new experience of the world, it teaches us to trust life, your intuition, yourself. By being grateful every day in everything we do, even things that seem insignificant, we learn to trust in life and in turn that will give us confidence.
When you start and end the day with gratitude, you’ll notice how many blessings you get during the day, but you were never aware. Gratitude reminds us that we are what we are – worthy of love and loved. Gratitude brings us back to the present moment and teaches us that happiness is always in the present.
