Dear Joy-Seeker,

What are you grateful for? Do live from a place from gratitude? What does this all mean?

Gratitude is the act of giving thanks for all that you have and all that you are.  The “act” is usually as simple as just feeling thankful but can be expressed in many other ways, such as verbally. Why is it so important?

Focusing on the things you are grateful for keeps you in a high vibrational space and sends a signal to the universe to keep providing more things for you to be grateful for. The universe does not determine whether your thoughts are positive or negative it only provides to you, the things that you are focused on.

Have you ever had a day where everything just seemed to go wrong? We all have. However, if you were able to turn your focus away from the very first bad thing that happened and focus on something more positive, I’m willing to bet your day would have gone a lot smoother. Easier said than done, I know. But are you willing to give it a try?

Start your day by giving thanks for even the smallest of things and put yourself in the habit of going through your day in that space of gratitude. Take it one step at a time. You may start out only remembering to do it at one moment in the day, however, the fact that you stopped and remembered is the most important thing. Slowly it will become a habit and you will become addicted to that feeling.

Being in a space of gratitude changes the way in which you connect with others and how you operate in the world. How do you want to show up?

Much love,
