Have you practiced gratitude today?

“You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.” — Sarah Ban Breathnach

Dentist Visit

Hello Readers,

Sorry I haven’t posted in so long. I have been focused on a couple of other projects and things going on in my life lately.

Today I just wanted to post on how extremely grateful I felt as I left the dentist office. I hadn’t gone to the dentist in a couple of years due to the fact that I didn’t have insurance. So I will have to say THANK YOU for my insurance now allowing me to get checkups done without paying out of pocket. But I was so worried about going to the dentist, since I hadn’t gone in so long I thought I’d have at least a couple of cavities and even worse I thought I would have to get all of my wisdom teeth removed ASAP.

But the night before my visit I sat in gratitude imagining how great my visit would go, how nice the dentists office would be, and how nice my lady dentist would be as well. I practiced my feeling of gratitude for how amazing the visit would be.

After getting through my X-Rays the Lady dentist came in, she told me how my wisdom teeth were coming in but I only needed to remove 2 of them, and that it wasn’t necessary to do it right away. Also she said I had a great oral hygiene and that she was please to tell me that I had NO cavities!

I left the office just saying Thank  You a million times in my head and out loud, I repeated and smiled and felt so much gratitude, it was just amazing. It set the tone for me to have an amazing day, and that’s exactly what I did! I had an amazing day!!!

Thank you for reading!!

The ever giving blessings of being grateful are amazing!

Gratitude for Healing

I am sooooooo grateful to be healed. I won’t go into detail about what I have been going through because I beleive that talking about something doesn’t do any good. I will just say that I am eternally grateful to be healed.

 

It took me a lot of strength, will power, and faith to be healed. And practicing my gratitude for all the amazing things I have in my life only helped to make my healing happen faster.For those of you who are going through tough or trying times. I assure you there is an end and you can be happy. You have to remain strong, and believe with all of your being that will come out of your situation stronger than you could of imagined. And that the hard times will phase out and you will find true happiness.

During what I went through I kept and still keep a gratitude journal, highlighting anything and everything  that I am grateful for. I was grateful for my temporary struggle because of how it brought gratitude to me. I was grateful for everything small, and everything big in my life. I was just grateful for it all.  It helped me to realize I have so many things to be grateful for, and that my focus should be on the good and not the bad.

I encourage you, if your in a trying time, to sit down with a notepad and pen and write down as many things that you can think of that you are grateful for. I promise you it will make a difference.

 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for my healing, my speedy recovery, my happiness, and my joy!

And thank you so much for reading!

 

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation. -Brian Tracy

 

Gratitude Meditation

I have been practicing my morning meditation for a couple of months now. Every morning i wake up and just lay and think about what im grateful for. Grateful because
I am healed. Grateful to wake up and know I am having an amzing day. After i get ready I just sit and meditate for about 5-10 minutes. And in my meditation i am thinking of all the things I have to be grateful for. Ii repeat the words thank you, thank you, thank you, in my mind over and over while i think about all the great things I have in my life.

Practicing thisnin the morning really sets the tone for my day. Rather than going to work and feeling stressed, I am going im peaceful and happy.

I encourage you to try your own kind of meditation or gratitude practice in the morning, youll be amazed at all the things you will feel grateful for as the day progresses.

There is not a more pleasing exercise of the mind than gratitude. It is accompanied with such an inward satisfaction that the duty is sufficiently rewarded by the performance.
Joseph Addison

Gratitude Today

Even though I had to work on this beautiful Saturday, I’ve decided to be grateful.

Gratfeul for the fact that I have a job. Gratfeful for the fact that my job allows me to make an income for my family. Grateful for the fact that I have a great job with benefits. Grateful that the people I work with are friendly. I could literally go on for a while…. But i think you get the point.

I encourage you that next time you go to work rather than complain about having to work. Make a list about all the things you are grateful for about your job. Whether
its written down or just in your head. Think of as many things you can that you are grateful for about your job until you feel better.

Thank you so so so much for reading!
