5 reasons to focus on gratitude

Fear is:

1. Gratitude feels so much better than fear

Fear causes us to make choices that usually create outcomes we don’t want. Bottom line gratitude feels good. Fear doesn’t.

2. Seeing through the eyes of love we only see gratitude

Gratitude allows us to love all of life. Every event in our life, especially the unpleasant ones always have a gift attached to them, if we are willing to see the gift. Gratitude helps us see and allows us to feel better.

3. Gratitude allows us to see the bigger picture.

I find the questions:

How can I see this through the eyes of the angels?
What would an angel do?

Make a huge difference in my life and the answers are always filled with gratitude.

4. Gratitude will set your free from the limitations of self.

A friend of mine used to tell me, “When you are all wrapped up in yourself you make a very small package.” Gratitude allows you to be big, loving and kind.

5. Did I mention gratitude feels good.

It just feels good. Write a gratitude list everyday and notice how much better you feel.

Spend this holyday season filled with gratitude an joy. Share that gift with as many people as possible and watch your life light up!
