Gratitude is realizing how lucky we are. It’s more than saying thank you or showing appreciation. It turns what we already have into enough. It’s a deep realization that what we already have right now in this moment is a miracle. It is our most basic response to life. The fact that we are breathing, the coffee we are drinking is steaming, the thoughts we are thinking are inspiring – is a true marvel. Being deeply grateful is a motivational force that changes our day and makes us feel like our life has meaning.
Let us turn greed and need into an attitude of gratitude today.
Transformation starts with our thoughts, in small increments: a mental image and as little as 100 words. Transformation isn't a future event. It's a present day activity.
"To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts." - Thoreau
