Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie, author
Did you know that positive thoughts create pathways in the brain? The more you feel gratitude, the easier it becomes. In addition, you’ll attract more for which to be grateful.
The motherless daughters I spoke with who found the path back to gratitude seemed to have also found a way to move forward in the lives. Expressing gratitude may sound like a cliche but being grateful for even the smallest thing can help you take a step forward.
Think of fresh ways to express your gratitude. Start a gratitude journal, post notes of gratitude to yourself and others, send an email or text thanking a friend for being there for you, show gratitude for good service at the grocery store or restaurant, say thanks to your garbage person, be grateful for waking up to another day.
Affirmation: I am grateful.
Coaching questions/request: How do you show gratitude? When you were at a low point in your life, how did gratitude lift you up? Say thank you to God for His creation, or to a person in your life for their love, or to yourself for being a grateful person.
Namaste – the divine in me honors and thanks the divine in you – I’m grateful for your attention
