Gratitude



Gratitude is an expression of appreciation for what we have. It is opposed to a consumer-oriented focus on what we want or may need. Studies show that we can deliberately cultivate gratitude, and increase our well-being by doing so. Grateful thinking, and sharing it with others, is associated with increased levels of energy, optimism, and empathy.

Thank you Universe. For everything that I am, and everything that I have, and everyone I know - at this very moment on this perfect beautiful day.

  1. I was just doing my annual accounts and not feeling good about money. But...you have reminded me, I have no debts, I have enough and I AM grateful. Thanks for the reminder! It does feel better to be grateful.
