Gratitude. I truly believe it is the number one key to authentic happiness. Being truly thankful is the answer to lack, dissatisfaction and striving endlessly for more in life.
When we stop looking outside ourselves for happiness and success and acknowledge the blessings, abundance and good in our lives, life gets bigger, brighter and more beautiful.
It opens our hearts and breeds positivity. It’s graceful. I live for the stuff.
Want to know a secret? Every single morning before I’ve even opened my eyes, I think of 5 things I am grateful for and say THANK YOU.
Whenever I’m feeling lack, stress, sadness or frustration, I write in my journal a list of all the blessings and love in my life. I never find it difficult to think of something to feel grateful for; my family, friends, bubble baths, random acts of compassion and generosity, yoga and medjool dates feature regularly on my list. I instantly get my appreciation pants back on and feel ah-mazing.
So this folks, will be the first of many Gratitude Files. Things of delicious wonder that are making my heart sing and bringing smiley-ness into my life.
