Today is Thanksgiving in the United States so I felt this post was most pertinent.
Gratitude will change your life!
It’s interesting that as I was getting ready to write this post, I looked an email which had this as the lead in:
“What if we assumed that everything the Universe sent to us was “good” for us…even if we didn’t see it that way at first?
That would mean that everything that happened during our day was something positive, even if we had a negative reaction or interpreted it as “bad” initially. This new assumption would certainly change our energy quickly, wouldn’t it?”
How timely is that - you know there are NO accidents in the universe.
But I digress. The point of my post today (and should be everyday) is that you must incorporate gratitude and an expression of that gratitude in order to receive the best blessings from the universe. Be grateful for everything and I mean everything even if it doesn’t appear to be something good for you. The reason for this is that everything is what you declare it to be. If you declare something good, it will be good. If you declare something bad, guess what? It will be bad!
I recommend you journal your “gratitudes” as I call them. And an easy way to do that is to download the free software I created called “The Gratitude Journal” - you can get it at http://www.GratitudeTracker.com .
Now downloading it is not enough by itself. You must use it!!! And you must make that use a routine, daily practice. You can’t journal about your gratitude for a few days and then claim that you got nothing in return. That’s not the way it works. You must make this a part of your everyday life. Think about it during the day and jot down what you’re grateful for (there’s a “sticky” in the program that will help those of you who sit at the computer every day).
The universe has to be cared for and you do that by thanking it. Tell the universe how grateful you are for what it’s given you. For instance, today I had to go to a doctor’s appointment and the parking area at the hospital is always totally full. So, realizing this, I started over the weekend saying that I was so grateful for the close parking space I had. I visualized it and lo and behold today I got a great parking space.
Regardless of the return you get, it’s our responsibility to be grateful for all that comes to us. You say thank you to the clerk in a store for doing their job and taking your money. So, why not say thank you to the Universe for all the good it’s given to you.
Go get your Gratitude Journal now and begin thanking the Universe - today and everyday for every single thing that you received!
Thanks for letting me be here!
