Life Begins with Gratitude
Gratitude lives at the center of our happiness and out of it springs all good things in our lives. Our joy comes out of thanksgiving and having a grateful attitude will help keep us on our destined path to the life we were meant to have. Gratitude can turn the routine hum drum into something really great. It can transform us from the inside out, showing us the beautiful things we have, not the lack of. It causes us to look at everything differently, appreciating what we have. Thankfulness is good for our mental health and physical bodies because it breathes life into both.
I love the following quote by William Arthur Ward-
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
How great is that? It just starts with a heart check and realizing that there is a lot to be grateful for in our lives. Can you name at least 5 things today that you are thankful for? Can you start to put in a daily self check and remind yourself of what you are thankful for? I believe we will start to see mountains moving in our lives when we begin to do so. Everything good starts with a heart of gratitude.
