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 their lives. Expressing gratitude may sound like a cliche but being grateful for even the smallest thing will make a difference in your life.
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, to a person in your life for their love, or to yourself for noticing that you’re grateful.

When I first went into therapy I kept a list of “things that made me happy.” When my therapist and I reviewed it I realized not one thing on the list cost money.
Very interesting! Thanks for sharing.
