What does it really mean to be grateful?


1 x Quick Channel:


Gratitude is a word that is used so often you gloss over its essential meaning. To live in gratitude is the most perfect way for you to live. It is the utopia of life. And yet you continue to underestimate its power. And we don’t mean forced writing at the end of the day into a book, we mean integrating gratitude into every single moment of your life. We mean being present, we mean being observant, we mean switching on your senses as you move through your day to view and participate in all that you have to be grateful for.


Let us give you an example. You go to the supermarket, rather than racing around trying to get out of there as fast as possible, take a moment to feel gratitude as you enter the store. Be grateful there is a store for you to enter, grateful for all the fresh food on the shelves for you to purchase, grateful for the packers, the delivery drivers, the farmers and growers who enabled that food to be in the supermarket.


When you slow down and look at your life, you’ll find there is so much to be grateful for. When you focus on that gratitude, you’ll realise your demeanour gets lighter and brighter and remember that the universe is always responding to how you feel, so the more you live in total gratitude, it will send you more and more to be grateful for.


Worth giving it a shot hey?


1 x Quote from the Book:


“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”


Melody Beattie


1 x Question for you to Ponder:


We invite you this week to spend just one day in pure gratitude. Focus on every moment, on every activity and look for the gratitude in those moments… we assure you, you will be gobsmacked by what you find. So much so, you may even try it again the next day, and the next, and the next, and the next.
