In going with the whole “new world, new you” theme that seems to be taking the world by Storm, I have chosen today to focus on a theme/feeling that has been gently screaming for me to take notice of- Gratititude.
I am becoming more and more aware of how our attitude affects the world around us, and affects our ability to tap in to the peace of mind that universal abundance can provide. To give a clear definition-true gratitude is recognizing that we have enough, and that we are enough. We are provided for, just as we were provided for in the womb without doubt, such is the truth of our existence.
I can already see you rolling your eyes, and I totally get it! It seems counter intuitive, focusing positive energy on “having enough” when our Christmas list to Santa is like, 10-feet long. Why ask if I already have all that I need? Because it is the energy of gratitude that attracts more abundance. Or so the story goes lol
Somehow, some way, when I find myself pulled back to those “dark places” (you know the ones I’m talking about, the mental places of scarcity or loneliness) something inside of me jumps out and yells “Ha! I caught you! Why? Did you think I wouldn’t see what you’re trying to do?! And by my lucky stars I’m always able to get back to the fuzzy, warm destination of being totally content and satisfied in the present moment, proverbial coconut drink in hand 🙂
I haven’t always been able to do that, or rather, I haven’t always been aware that I have the ability to change my attitude or the way I view or live through transition periods. I have, however, always known how to survive long enough to reach the point of THRIVING. And that my friend is the will power of a soul who just can’t give up on “trying to reach the things that we can’t see.”
