When you open up your heart and allow gratitude to flow freely within yourself, you are inviting more happiness to appear. For when we are grateful for what we do have, instead of what we don’t have, we are asking the universe to bring us more of what we truly want in our lives.
Many of the simple things in life can be reasons for being grateful. These are often things that we tend to take for granted–our health, family, friends, our livelihood–until they are brought to our attention or taken away.
Remembering to be grateful daily for one’s health, family, friends, a job during a recession, having a roof over one’s head and food on the table is a good way to start living with gratitude.
As each year ends and a new one begins we have the opportunity to stop and reflect on the current state of our lives and remember to be grateful.
Say yes to gratitude.
