Living with Thanks!

 

 November is a time for thanksgiving; a time for pausing in gratitude for the many blessings in our lives. Living with such an “attitude of gratitude” is essential for a happy life because it turns our attention away from lack into plenty, from poverty into abundance. From this mindset that we can truly see the glass half-full, regardless of its contents.

No matter what your spiritual or religious beliefs, having a thankful consciousness can mean the difference between living in misery or joy. I am so grateful to notice the difference in my life and to have awoken to this Truth long ago. Will you join me? Living with thanks is ultimately a choice. Are you willing you move past petty differences with others to see and appreciate the beauty in them? We all have gifts to give and none is more priceless than the gift of love.

Today, I invite you to thank God, by living with thanks. Another words, living with a grateful heart. Show kindness. Give generously. Practice patience. Live in Gratitude. Say ‘Thank You’ often.

Namaste’,  (Peace be with you)

Honoring 11-11-11

  Today is November 11th, 2011; it is a special day of Peace & Unity as well as Remembrance since it is also Veterans Day. We are blessed to have such a wonderful planet to call home that is abundant with fresh oxygen from billions of trees, as well as clean water to drink and provide climate stability. I am grateful for the sun that grows my food and for keeps me warm; regulating the atmosphere and protecting us from harm. We must be the change we wish to see in the world; by living in Peace and coming from a place of Unity Consciousness. We are all One human race. We share this planet we call home. Thank you to those who have fought and continue to fight for freedom. Now it is time to lay down your guns in exchange for peace. The fight is over. Freedom has won; we see this all through the world as oppressed nations rise against tyranny and claim democracy. It is good.  It is done.

 

  Light a candle to remember and signify peace. Say a prayer of thanksgiving or simply be still. Mother, Father, God, I am so thankful and grateful for peace, freedom, health, abundance, prosperity and most of all Love. I am so blessed to live in a world of balance, hope and harmony. Earth, air, fire and water remind me of all the elements that encompass human life. I am abundantly and richly blessed.  Our leaders are aligned with Infinite Wisdom and Intelligence; Love and Unity. The sick are now healed. The poor rich. The oppressed free. We are all One. Amen.

Welcome to Gratitude 365!

This blog is a daily reminder of all the many reasons we have to be grateful.  As our world goes through immense changes and challenges, I choose to focus on the positive and relish in all that works, knowing that everything else is already in the process of healing or correcting itself.  Amidst our darkest hour, there is always something to be grateful for.

This blog is an offshoot of a book I am creating on this very subject. I am using it as my personal gratitude journal that I want to share with the world, and in turn hope to spark others to do the same.  Feel free to comment on what you’re grateful for or just respond to what I have written. You never know what may get published!

I look forward to this journey of discovery as we unearth 365 reasons to be grateful together!
