Get it? Whatever it is, no matter how big or how small, feel grateful. List 25 or more things you feel grateful for in your daily gratitude journal. Begin to actually feel grateful. Feel the emotion of appreciation. Realize how blessed and fortunate you are.
Take inventory. Do it often. Everyday, morning and night. Miracles happen when you appreciate what you have and express your thankfulness. Anything is fair game. Make it a habit to look for, find and express your positive feelings. Anytime, anywhere!
You get more of whatever you focus on. If you are negative and focused on what you don’t have and don’t want you will stay stuck. Begin to really appreciate what you have, no matter how small or how little, and you will get back more of that. Stay positive.
One of the quickest ways you can make a positive change to almost instantly feel better and think better, anytime, anywhere, no matter who you are with is to feel and express genuine gratitude. Focus on what you feel good about and you will begin to feel better!
Whatever you can’t be grateful about is what you are limited by. Seek to include more and more things you can feely be thankful for. Expand your horizons and enjoy more. It is wonderful to find delight in all things. Explore, notice, include, list and feel wonderful!
When you feel better your brain works better. You are able to find solutions to problems more readily and recognize opportunities you might otherwise miss. You are more productive and you attract other positive people, events and circumstances to you.
Imagine having lots and lots of reasons to feel good and to enjoy life. Be grateful for what you have and you make room to have much, much more. Even if you didn’t you’d still be feeling good. Get it? Do it! The idea is truly to celebrate everything.” Rex Sikes
