My attitude reflects a heart filled with appreciation for the things I have, my strength (emotional and physical), and my prosperity.
I am humbled whenever I count my blessings because I know that there are many who are in less fortunate situations…who don’t enjoy the centeredness and groundedness I enjoy…who don’t yet know how to start and continue their healing process..
I am grateful because my Creator, the Divine, Spirit – or however I refer to that great positive force outside of me – continues to bless me out of love. I seek to treat others with the same love and shower them with gratitude.
Gratitude fills my heart with positive energy. I walk through life with a smile on my face, a bounce in my step, and confidence in my heart because I trust that I am cared for. When I look through thankful eyes, I am able to see hope in the world.
When someone does something for me, I express my thanks, even when it is something small. I appreciate others’ hard work and dedication toward me. From the clerk at the store, to my loving spouse or partner, I make it a point to sincerely thank everyone who serves me, who strengthens me and who appreciates me.
A small note, a smile, and a kind word are all simple ways in which I show others that I am thankful. A grateful attitude keeps pride and arrogance far from me. Pride comes before the fall, but gratitude keeps me standing strong.
Being thankful is a habit that I work on. Over time, the more appreciation I show, the easier it gets. Gratitude has become a charming and natural part of my personality.
Today, I give thanks for the gift of life. I go out of my way to make sure those around me know that I appreciate them from the bottom of my heart.
