New year, new you or new month, fresh start. Whatever, it’s only a week left of March and I think it’s the great time to start something new, or re-commit to something that might already be part of your day: GRATITUDE.
It’s never too late or too early or too busy or too difficult or too anything to start a gratitude practice.
Gratitude is the gateway drug to happiness.
This was one of the practices that my course participants practiced this week and it’s amazing to hear the shifts that come immediately.
The more I focus on gratitude the more I find to be grateful for….
The more specific I get in my gratitude the stronger the feeling…
Since I started with my gratitude practice I’ve had so many amazing synchronicities happening….
Life is never black or white, it’s never either or but both and more. No matter what you are going through right now there’s always so much more to be grateful for than not. Even if you’re struggling right now I bet you can find at least 1 000 things to be grateful for. I’m really not kidding! Your eyes, your ears, your lungs… water, air, sun… love, relationships, connection… trees, flowers, ocean… books, knowledge, free resources… freedom, safety, home… I could go on and on and on and on.
But I want to challenge you to start practicing being aware of all the blessings all around you. The practice is simple and you can try it out for the rest of March. If you don’t like it, drop it. We’re gonna write gratitude lists, morning and night. Five things. Three rules;
Come up with new things all the time. No repetition.
Be specific; What part of your home are you grateful for? Why is this relationship so awesome? What about your job are you liking extra right now?
Feel the feeling. The trick is to really sink into the feeling of gratitude. I call is taking a dip in the gratitude jacuzzi. Enjoy the feeling of gratitude and watch how it affects the rest of your day.
I hope you feel inspired to try this one out with me! As you well know, nothing changes until you change and everything changes when you do so just do it and evaluate beginning of April.
With all my love,
