Gratitude is the most rewarding feeling ever. Gratitude is a feeling you can’t shake off which will be with you every second of the day.
I always think there is two sides of the spectrum for gratitude. There is feeling grateful for when things are going extremely good and there is the feeling of gratitude when everything is changing but you still reflect on the things you’re grateful for.
For example, I am grateful that you have taken your time out of your day to read my blog, whether I get a few views or 100’s of views. I thank you all for your time, your comments, likes & shares. Even while writing this I feel an overwhelmed sensation of appreciation that actually in fact has made me cry ( happy tears of course).
I am currently reading The Magic by Rhonda Byrne and each morning she teaches you the use of gratitude and how beneficial it is. Each morning before you get up, she prompts you to list 10 things you are grateful for. Since practising this exercise I have seen a huge mental change within me and every morning and night I tell myself out loud 10 things I’m grateful for( even though she says you can do it in the morning). In addition to my morning routine, in the evening I tend to show my appreciation for the day with a ‘ thank you’.
I want you to be in a constant state of gratitude no matter what your circumstances are. Everyone’s grateful for something whether that’s their pet, friend or family, we all have something to be grateful for.
Starting from today you will write/say out loud 10 things you are grateful for and after you’re done I want you to say this little mantra after ‘’ I am thankful for everything I’m currently experiencing and everything I have to come’’.
Here are some examples to kick start you:
-I am grateful for the clean running water
-I am grateful for all my senses
-I am grateful for the love and support I receive from everyone
-I am grateful for the money I am able to spend
