When you are grateful you attract better things in your life.
It’s gratitude season! Wow, I can’t believe that we’re days away from November 2018. The holidays are among us. For many of us, it’s time of togetherness, giving and receiving and other happy moments. Yet, sadly, it’s also a time of unhealthy stress for many of us. It can be sad times as we miss those who are no longer with us. With all that said, whenever I’m down or whenever I’m feeling low, I force myself to find the positive in almost everything that I do. I do this by literally counting my blessings, and opening my heart for grace and gratitude.
It’s not always easy to be in the state of gratitude when we’re in a low mental space. The best way to begin to express feelings of gratitude and those feelings is by making them ones to remember. Identifying things to be grateful for is important for your mental health and happiness. Whether you are giving thanks and appreciation to yourself, an action, or for another person, this challenge is a great way to open available to the present moment and give thanks for all that you have.
There are many benefits to practicing gratitude, one of them is reducing stress. When you are constantly in a state of gratitude, you don’t make the time or allow for much time for negative thoughts, fears, or un-serving beliefs to run rapidly through your mind, thus reducing stress.
Ever heard of the Law of Attraction? Having an attitude of gratitude brings you closer to your inner desires. Why?
What you think about, you bring about.
Like attracts like.
Yet, if you think and feel positive, then you are more likely to attract positive things in your life. When you are thinking and feeling grateful, you feel good. When you feel good, good things come to you in various ways…through situations, circumstances, gifts, people, opportunities, etc. Feeling grateful is one of the highest vibrations you can radiate. It tells the Universe, “I love my life and everything in it, give me more things to love and be grateful for!”
Gratitude can truly transform your life. An attitude of gratitude tells the universe that you are in a state of mind that is open for great things to be thankful for. No matter how bad you may judge your life or current situation to be, there is always something to be grateful for. If you truly want to transform your life, practicing gratitude to manifest faster.
Gratitude allows me to live life as a gift. In almost everything that I do, if I can find something to be thankful for, I am blessed. We often hear the saying that “life is short” so when I seek gratitude in my acts of service, in recognition of service from others to me, I am living as though every moment, or interaction that I have with others, is a moment to be thankful.
This November, I want you to join me as I personally challenge myself to post on social media every day and say what I am grateful for. We’re about to step in 2019. Before we do, let’s count our blessings with a 30 Days of Gratitude challenge. No matter how the year has been, let’s head into the last chapter of 2018 with so much gratitude in our hearts. Use your social media platform and if you want to step it up a notch, begin using a gratitude journal.
Here are some tips to help you through this challenge
- Choose a time of day when you will post, early morning before you start your day or at night often works best.
- Commit to posting something each day no matter how difficult it may be.
- Write as much detail as you can or want each day. Write everything you are grateful for correlating with the topic of the day.
Enjoy this act of gratitude, this is self-care time.
