Gratitude is an attitude of expressing thankfulness. If you are the kind of person who sees joy in all life then you are truely blessed. You will also know how easy and powerful it feels to say ‘Thank You’. Not everyone feels this natural ease, but you can create it by taking a moment to mentally let go of any judgements or old view points you might be holding about the situation. In doing so you free your mind to open up to new posibilites and ways of responding.
4. GIVING THANKS
This is a powerful gift. You can do this vocally or quietly to yourself. It can be directed to another, to yourself, to a situation and even to your food. Giving thanks is a wonderful way of showing your true appreciation for life. When we give thanks we open and connect to things outside of ourselves, whether this be other people or to our concept of the divine. We can also create a deep connection with ourselves internally which can become a transformative tool of concious creation and joy.
I think it was Deepak Chopra who once said “When the going gets tough, the tough give thanks”.
