October 25, 2009 On gratitude
Yes, yes. The attitude of gratitude. When gratitude takes over, the whole world appears to be sunlit and radiant. When the heart opens to allow for gratitude to enter into it, it is like opening a door to a room long-awaiting the light of day. Gratitude makes everything clear, creating a new perspective on life which boosts one’s enthusiasm and positive mental outlook. With clarity of mind, one can manifest all one’s dreams and goals, especially if those dreams and goals are aligned with one’s higher self. Then, as they say, ‘the sky is the limit!’
When one looks at one’s life from this perspective, seeking out what to be grateful for, one finds the silver lining, unexpectedly and with great surprise! So, be ever grateful for the blessings you have received. Count them one by one, when you feel like you are in a dark cloud. Count aloud, so you can hear each thing your heart feels grateful for. This is an excellent way to begin each day. And keep the journal of gratitude by your bedside. Whenever you feel down, it will certainly help to uplift you. A simple tool for simplifying one’s life.
