Attitude of Gratitude

Dear friends,

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~Melody Beattie

Every year at this time we all sit around with loved ones and discuss what we’re thankful for. Isn’t it wonderful?

What would our lives be like if we had this gratitude 365 days a year?

There comes a time in all of our lives where we just feel that nothing is going our way. Jobs, family, friends — it all seems to be less than ideal. Everyone else seems to be successful and thriving. What’s my problem? Why is this all happening to me?

When we find ourselves in these stages in life, remember that it’s when we need gratitude the most.

No matter what, we always have something to be grateful for. And it’s important to look at life from that standpoint.

We are living, breathing beings, and with each breath we have the opportunity to change our lives. What you think is how you feel. How you act has the ability to influence others. We are meant to be blissful, uplifting beings in life.

The energy you put out will always come back to you. So, sending gratitude and graciousness out into the world, will surely come back around to you in some form or another.

So during this time where thankfulness and gratitude surround us, let’s focus on taking these ideals and bringing them into our day-to-day lives. How can we shift and bring more gratitude into our lives? Check out these four A’s for a more gracious living:

–  Awareness. Simply being aware of when you start to get down in the dumps is the first major step! Cross this bridge, and you’ll find the land of peace and graciousness.

–  Acknowledgement. By acknowledging that parts of life aren’t where we want them to be we can uncover the steps to make meaningful change.

–  Appreciation. Don’t look at what you don’t have. Value what you do have.

–  Acceptance. Life is what you make it. The grass is not always greener on the other side; it’s greener where you water it!

Are you living a gracious life? What can you do to get that attitude of gratitude?
