Showing your gratitude can be a great way to spread positive feelings in the world around you.
When you think about it, reaching your goals starts with a single positive thought.
Many of us don’t think that Gratitude can be of any benefit.
But let me tell you I have experienced the benefits of practicing Gratitude.
In the poem, a Poison Tree, William Blake wrote:
“I was angry with my friend. I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe.
I told it not, my wrath did grow.”
Expressing gratitude can be difficult for some people.
Especially when you are not used to it.
We grow up thinking that we need to say thank you after something good has happened.
Often times, gratitude is mixed in with other feelings like jealousy, envy, embarrassment, or insecurity.
I have a dare for you. For 30 days to try out this gratitude challenge.
After that, if you feel it is not working for you.
Just stop. What have you got to lose?
What if I told you that there is one thing that you can do every single day that will raise your vibration, bring you more prosperity.
Bringing you more happiness. Multiply your blessings.
And just help you live an overall better life. Will, you believe me? Only one thing.
Well, that thing is…
So, I have been practicing gratitude since October 2013.
I started out by learning what gratitude is.
Then I started practicing it daily. Something that helped me, in the beginning, was to use a free gratitude journal template that I could fill in and complete myself.
Have you heard people saying?
Why can’t you be more grateful? At some point in our life, we hear these words.
When we are young, we hear them from parents, teachers, grandparents. Some of us heard it as an adult from our spouse or partner.
Today we will be looking at what is the power of gratitude.
There is no doubt that being grateful changes things in our lives.
I have often found myself searching for free gratitude cards on the internet.
I could not find any that had the words that I liked.
So I decided to make myself a few.
I first learned about affirmations in 2013.
Deep down inside I knew I am a positive person.
I did not know that I can become more positive on a daily basis though.
From many years of experience let me give you my version of what is the opposite of gratitude.
I never really thought about it until the other day. I finally realized that Gratitude has an opposite.
Really it does.
Let’s find out what it is…
