The Gratitude Attitude 


“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity… It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” – Melody Beattie

As you allow the gratitude attitude to take over today, notice how you feel… Appreciation is a wonderful state of being.  And this Thanksgiving do remember to be thankful for yourself, too. We are always looking outside of us and forget to appreciate ourselves.  We have a wonderful body which is in a constant quest for equilibrium and healing. Our senses are fantastic tools… and we think, we feel, we are an ocean of uniqueness and endless energy.  Take the time today to acknowledge your being, to love your being, and to honor your being.  Just a few minutes of silence should be enough, your depth is all there for you to enjoy. Happy Thanksgiving!
