An Attytood of Grattytood

Since I’m from Philly, where people talk like that, I invite you to take time today to focus on  ‘grattytood’  (gratitude),because what we think about and thank about, we bring about. Grateful people are happier people who can be a greater force for good in the world and send the ripples outward. Imagine a world in which gratitude prevailed and love led the way.
I do a gratitude practice throughout my day, actively looking for things I appreciate. It is isn’t a one and done kind of thing. Before I open …my eyes in the morning, at least 10 things come to mind. As I close them at night, I drift off counting my blessings. In the car, at work, alone or with friends and family, I bring them to mind.
This is especially helpful when I am in the midst of challenge and change. Who isn’t sometimes? Even The Bliss Mistress Gets The Blues.
On American Thanksgiving which is 11/28 this year, I encourage you to start the practice, if you haven’t already. Come up with at least 5 things for which you are grateful. I bet you will like it so much, that you will want to repeat it on Friday. You could get so hooked on it that you will carry it on into Saturday. Who knows, by Sunday, it could become an obsession and you could decide that it is as important as eating and sleeping. It is for me.
SO, I’ll get us started with some of the things on my list:
Love, family, friends, food, my beautiful home into which I invite all of those previously mentioned, my Jeep that gets me where I need to go, chocolate, chai, animals, The Muse who whispers inspiration in my ears 24/7, speaking and writing opportunities, abundance, dancing, drumming, music, my radio show, yoga, surprise messages, blast from the past re-connections, bonfires, massage, chopsticks, crayons, butterflies, inspiration, laughter, my childhood, magic, mystery, tears, lessons learned, rising above, travel, ancestors, rainbows, snowflakes, puddle splashing, finger painting, prayer, meditation, blessings swirling around, vibrant good health, sweet lovers, wake-up calls, do-overs, full-circle experiences, forgiveness, playouts at the gym, revelations/aha! moments, miracles, feathers, my computer, spiritual connection, messages from Beyond, overlapping soul circles, work that I love, new people who come into my life everyday.
Now, it’s YOUR turn.  Please feel free to share this with your circles and watch the ripples spread~
Wishing you as many things to be grateful for as the cranberries in the bowl above….and then some.
Much love, blissings and blessings,
Edie ?
