World Gratitude Day

A picture of a woman with arms open wide facing the fading sun with the words on the picture “Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. There is ALWAYS something that you can find to be grateful for…..

I found it interesting that today is World Gratitude Day because when I discovered it, I was lying in bed doing my morning reading and today I felt the need to go back to the book I am reading called “The Magic” by Rhonda Byrne and it is all about gratitude and using it to create magic in your life.

In fact, I had gone to Facebook to post this picture I made this morning while reading the book… I like to do this as I see quotes that I resonate with.

A picture graphic that I made with the sun streaming through the forest and the quote “When you direct gratitude toward something or someone, you will feel it even more and your gratitude will have even more power, and create even more magic!” Book by Rhonda Byrne “The Magic”

I thought this was uncanny when after posting this, that I discovered that it was World Gratitude Day.

This is something I am working on diligently…. the art of more gratitude in my life. The magic really does work when you apply the discipline of gratitude in your life. And there really is always something to be grateful for.

I was sharing on a networking call last week my technique that I use when I have challenges and how I turn them around to gratitude. For example, I can give you one for today that uses my technique:

Last night I drained my hot tub and refilled it. Now I have an air lock that I need to fix and it is a bit frustrating. So how I got myself over the frustration (here is the technique), I became grateful for having the hot tub in the first place. I call this ‘getting behind the problem’. I would not have this problem if I was not fortunate enough to have this hot tub!

This strategy always helps me. I have used it in many ways. Another example is when my daughter was little and she was sick and up in the night. Although tired I became grateful that I was gifted a child that I could care for when they were sick. I then became honored to do so because of the gratitude that flooded my body and being.

Gratitude truly is magical and I for one, will be using it more and more and more, because the more you use it, the more you get and the more you get, the more the magic and miracles start occurring in your life.

Happy World Gratitude Day my friends and I hope that you too reach for gratitude often…. I am grateful for each and everyone on of YOU….
