What would happen if we nurtured the feeling of Gratitude for everything that happens today… Gratitude for all the wonderful things, the annoyances and frustrations, all of it! How would having Gratitude for everything alter our experience of ourselves and the world around us?
Simply having an attitude of appreciating, of holding within us that feeling of being truly grateful releases feel-good chemicals in our bodies. These chemicals flow in our blood, through our organs, stimulating and nourishing all the cells in our body. It connects us closer to ourselves and others, nourishing relationships and enhancing our lives and therefore the lives around us.
Gratitude and appreciation are love in action, and are choices until they become second nature. That same love in action must include ourselves in the mix. When we are the torch-holders of love for ourselves, that love spills over to all things increasing the love in the world. It can’t be helped!
