Consideration of the Day – Gratitude

Posted by Angela on April 30, 2007

Gratitude can be an incredible healing process.  Shifting your perspective from negative self-talk and judgement to appreciation and gratitude can change your field of grace.  Here are some ways that I have found helpful in practicing gratitude:

  • Keep a Gratitude Journal – make a contract with yourself to find three things you are grateful for every single day
  • Look for beauty in the details – a blooming flower, the scent of lilacs on a spring day, a welcoming sunrise.
  • Tell uplifting stories
  • Practice random acts of kindness
  • Tell those you love that you Love them
  • If you catch yourself with feelings of frustration or anger, look for the blessing  (for example, someone is on their cell phone and runs a red light – bless and feel the gratitude that an accident was avoided . . .don’t give away your energy by feeding the anger)
  • Start and end each day with a prayer of gratitude

What ways to you spread gratitude?  How has feeling gratitude impacted your life?

 Blessings and Grace to all,

*Angela
