Make Gratitude a Daily Practice

Make Gratitude a Daily Practice

Inspiring Minds Book Club just started its latest book, The Magic by Rhonda Byrne, and I must share the teachings of the first chapter.

The chapter is about Gratitude. Gratitude is giving thanks. It is amazing to me, the many things there are to be thankful for, if only we look for them. How many times do we focus on the one or two things that are going wrong versus the hundreds of beautiful things that make us happy?

As I went for a long walk on Sunday, I counted over 100 things to be thankful for. Wonderful things are all around us, if we focus on the wonderful things. And if we focus on gratitude more greatness comes to us. Without gratitude, we disconnect ourselves from the power to receive more.

My challenge to you this week is to start your everyday with reflection of what you are thankful for. Start a gratitude journal. This practice will change your life.

    Nikki – I completely agree with you! I’ve written on this topic often, and I thought this piece was a nice companion to your wonderful wisdom.

    This post is one more reason for me to be grateful today!

    Kevin 🙂

    I agree wholeheartedly! It’s so easy to get caught up in the negative and the not-quite-perfect, when there is so much good around us. I try always to look for the good even in the bad things, and work extra hard to point them out to my son, hoping that attitude will become infectious (it’s hard when you’re 12 and there’s so. much. drama.).
    Please share more of your insight as you read the book!
