Gratitude: the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
Have you ever noticed, sometimes it is much easier thinking about everything you don’t have or everything you wish you had? It is easy to fall into the trap of wanting and wishing rather than living in the moment. Having an attitude of gratitude can literally change the course of your day. By waking up in the morning with the mindset of living your day positively and being grateful for what you have, who you are and the things you have experienced, you will be whisked off your feet and feel the fullness of gratitude.
“Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things.” – The Secret
Do you know what the miracle of the moment is? The miracle of the moment allows you to be present everyday, through every conversation, experiencing memories being made with your family and allowing yourself to grow. Living in the future and living in the past robs you of the moments happening right now. The miracle of the moment keeps your mind open and present to any opportunity that may come your way and will allow you to act upon your promptings.
“Focus. Otherwise you will find life becomes a blur.” – JPP
Incorporating gratitude in your life makes it easier for you to live in the moment and enjoy what is happening right now. The more you practice living in the moment, you will experience the miracle it truly is. Gratitude is a gift and a skill; it takes practice and full release to allow you to feel grateful. When you are able to feel grateful for people, experiences and the life you live, you will receive a very special gift; living in the moment and being grateful.
“A moment of Gratitude makes a difference in your Attitude.” – Unknown
Be an example, have an attitude of gratitude and live the life you love, spread the joy of the miracle of the moment and you will find the quality of your life will increase tenfold.
