One of the most powerful energies we can experience is the effects of gratitude. Feeling deep appreciation and gratitude for anything actually changes how you feel and your own energy.
Gratitude shifts and transforms what we are experiencing. It can turn what we have into enough, and more. It can turn judgment into acceptance, conflict into understanding, despair into hope…and more. It can turn a regular meal into a feast, living space into a place we call home, a stanger into a friend.
Remember to begin each day of your life with gratitude. Speak words such as, “Thank you, God, for life, for my body, for my family and loved ones, for this day, and for the opportunity to be of service. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” or use your own. And when the day is one, reflect and affirm or write in a gratitude journal the things you are grateful for from your day.

Gratitude begins with two simple words – thank you – but you have to feel grateful with all your heart. The more you start to say thank you, the more you will feel it, and the more love you will give.
There are 3 ways to use the power of gratitude in your life, everyone of them is giving love:
1. Be grateful for everything you have received in your life (past).
2. Be grateful for everything you are receiving in your life (present).
3. Be grateful for what you want in your life, as though you have received it (future).
If you’re not grateful for what you’ve received, and what you’re receiving, you’re not giving love, and you don’t have the power to change any of your current circumstances.

Everyday is a blessing, and in each moment there are many things that we can be thankful and grateful for. Life opens up to us when we live in a space of gratitude. In essence, gratitude has the effect of tossing a pebble in a pond. When we are thankful and express our appreciation with gratitude, the universe glows a bit brighter and showers us with even more blessings.

Gratitude is often lacking in our world today. People are so wrapped up in their own lives that they forget to appreciate what others have done for them. Gratitude is a character trait that we should try to develop and nurture in our children and in each other. It’s quite simple to thank others for their support, thoughtfulness, helpfulness and caring.
Have you done things for others and have them go unappreciated or even unnoticed? As grounded as we may be spiritually, emotionally and or mentally, repeatedly feeling unappreciated can affect our sense of self. We all thrive and do better when we experience being appreciated, our well-being is uplifted. A little appreciation and gratitude can improve moods, situations, relationships and outcomes.
When we are blessed by others in surprising and unexpected ways, there are a number of ways to show our appreciation and gratitude. Simply saying, “thank you” is a great start. Writing thank you notes is another traditional way of expressing gratitude and nice to do when you have received a gift. It’s also thoughtful to do when someone has gone out of their wat to do something special for you.
When we let others know through our words or actions that we truly appreciate them, it uplifts them and causes a ripple effect of gratitude. It’s a good practice to acknowledge the ways that your family, friends and co-workers are been good to you in supportive and thoughtful ways.
Imagine what the our families, friendships and places of employment would be like if we showed more appreciation and gratitude. So how will you extend and show more gratitude and appreciation to others this upcoming week…..
With many blessings to you and yours,

The website I think I will build first is “It’s About Gratitude“. I have not thought a lot about a description for it. The intention is that it is a place to go to for inspiration/encouragement for the blessings in our lives, whether we are adults or children. As it builds…I will get a clearer sense of it’s purpose and what I want it to be. I would also like the site to be interactive.
