The mind is a powerful thing and when we decide to be grateful for everything, we can learn to approach life with a more positive mindset. The only true power any of us has is our attitude and the way we react to our circumstances. You can find a way to look at any situation in a positive frame of mind, even the most tragic, if you choose to. For example, instead of looking at losing your job as a terrible thing, consider the opportunities you are now free to pursue and be grateful for the freedom you now have. Instead of being devastated by a break-up, acknowledge that at this time, the two of you are better off going separate ways, and be grateful that the relationship ended so you now have the time to fall in love with yourself and become the best person you can be instead of staying in a relationship that limits your potential.
Create a daily practice of taking time to appreciate everything around you and all the abundance you have in your life. When you pay your bills, feel gratitude for the income you have and for the source of that income. When you are walking outside, pay attention to your senses. Smell the air, listen to the birds sing, feel the heat of the sun on your skin. Revel in the awesomeness of nature and the miracle of all life. As you consistently practice gratitude, it soon will become second nature, which will improve your quality of life on all levels. Choosing gratitude will absolutely enhance the quality of your life. As you rewire your way of thinking, you will notice more things to be grateful for, which will create even more reasons to be grateful!
