It’s hard to feel sorry for yourself and feel grateful at the same time …
In fact, a daily, deliberate acknowledgment of what you are grateful for can be profoundly transformational.
Starting the day by writing down at least three things you are grateful for commands your brain to be on the lookout for ways in which goodness is showing up in your life.
Regardless of how you’re feeling at the moment, you can at least discover a glimpse of hope in even the most difficult moments.
Gratitude reminds you, that even when you feel like you’ve lost something, you still live in an abundant universe and good things are still coming to you.
I imagine you are familiar with the saying, “The more things change, the more they stay the same”. Change no one is immune to, is the fact all things in your life are temporary.
What stays the same is the fact that abundance in the universe is still available to you.
When you acknowledge you’re grateful for something, you are recognizing that life is giving to you. And if you think you are being given to in a positive way, how much opportunity is there to feel like a victim?
Sometimes one shred of gratitude can be like poking a hole in the night sky. Gratitude is the seed of happiness.
Here’s the real power in this practice. Let’s say you have a lot of pain from your past that makes it difficult for you to think of anything else.
You have a hard time feeling happy in the present because of how often you compare it to a past that has you believing you aren’t worthy of today’s happiness.
But when you begin introducing the habit of daily gratitude, you give more oxygen to abundance instead of giving it to dwelling on the past.
So over time, gratitude becomes your go to way of seeing life. Step-by-step, day by day, this habit takes root until these are the roots that feed the happiness you’ve been looking for.
Give it a go, start now, be patient and feel the shift happening. You’re welcome.
