“ To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven. ”
-Johannes A Gaertner
So here we are in the month of Thanksgiving… Yes, literally Thanksgiving day is November 24th...this week! So how did this happen so quickly?! We are well within the last hundred days of the year… As I count those days down with those in my Empowerment group that are removing from their proverbial plates that which has not served them this year (at least... Other than, knowing that which they do not desire in their lives )…as we...together Make room for New Beginnings … For miracles in 2017!
Hold that thought. Ask yourself… Is it not the time to practice Thanksgiving and Gratitude all throughout the year… And not simply at the time of Thanksgiving holiday? Of course, it is...for it is Gratitude that shifts our focus from what we may feel our life lacks to the abundance that is already present. Giving thanks makes us happier, healthier, and more resilient… As it strengthens our relationships ....as it enhances and contributes positively to every area of our life!
One of the most profound ways to express gratitude is through generosity of Spirit. The act of giving to others. The size of the gift is really unimportant. Rather, it is the act of giving, particularly when it is a gift of the Spirit… enabling others to be grateful for your generosity. The act of gratitude… to give pure of your heart and to give abundantly… Provides for us to be even more grateful in every area of our lives.
Today.… I invite YOU to count your blessings… Noticing simple pleasures, as well as, acknowledging everything that you have received.... That you continue to receive. And… As you do this, I trust and believe that you will become aware of… On a continuous basis… Of how much you have been given! Of this….I AM certain!
BE The Source within YOU....Now!
Once again…Always remember, what YOU do and who YOU are…..MATTERS!
May your Thanksgiving be filled with Love, Laughter, remembrances of good times...and new good times in the making, as well as Happy appetites! Happy Thanksgiving!
With Love & Blessings!
PS: Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation that you are making progress – IF YOU KNOW IT! No matter how large or small, please recognize it and be Grateful. Hey…It only takes a moment to pick up the penny… and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow of Positive Energy and Goodness.
"There is a mighty Power within you. There is that Spirit of Life, Light, and Love. The more you feast on these ideas and fast from old corrosive ones, the closer you experience the Life you desire." -Frank Richelieu, The Art of Being Yourself
