We are coming into a season where more people are focused on giving thanks. What does it mean when we say, “thank you?” To me, it means that I am grateful for the person, the act, or the situation. It shows appreciation. When we are giving thanks, we are projecting an attitude of gratefulness. When we live in gratefulness, we open ourselves up to receive more to be grateful for. In this way, when we are grateful or thankful, we see more in our lives that we are grateful for. It may seem magical or mystical, but as the law of attraction depicts, like attracts like. What we focus on grows, so focusing on being grateful makes us more grateful and, intern, we see more things around us to be grateful and thankful for.

 

What are you thankful or grateful for? As we enter this season of thankfulness, I challenge you to be more aware of your creation and blessings. Sometime ago, I began a daily practice of writing a list of things I am grateful for. They range anywhere from people and animals to physical and material things, as well as lessons, opportunities and emotions. I find myself smiling as I make my list each day. It truly brings my heart joy as I reflect on all of the things I have and I am experiencing. People have questioned me as to how we can be grateful when bad things happen. I believe there is always good in every situation. There is a lesson or an opportunity for growth. When we focus on those things and are thankful for them, our attitude shifts. As this happens, we realize there is good in everything. If we change our mindset to see through the darkness, we will see the light. Try this practice for one week and see how you feel. Reflect back and see if your focus changes. Notice if you have, suddenly, more to be grateful for in your life.

 

I am grateful for my gifts and talents and I am thankful I can share them with you.
