Gratitude Changes Everything!

Thank you for reading my posts! This is gratitude. Giving thanks is the cornerstone of changing attitude and perspective. The simple words “thank you” and “please” change everything.

Something changes in our minds the moment we start to notice the little things in life, and giving thanks. A simple thank you acknowledging a kindness can change the other person and yourself.

Life is a Blessing. We are blessed to wake up in the morning. It’s a great time to say thank you. The amazing natural world around us is great to appreciate.

Appreciation is another form of gratitude. If we appreciate someone, it is good to say so. It uplifts the other person, and continues to change our own perceptions.

Saying or showing appreciation brings more “good” things into our lives. Our lives are created by what we focus on. What good? Focus on the good and give thanks. What the challenging? Then, focus on “why is this happening to me?”

Our lives are a reflection of our self-talk, and what we believe.

Challenge to Those Who Accept. . .What are you grateful for in your life?
