Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
I know, we hear it all the time. Be grateful. But how much effort have your really given it?
I once did a two week gratitude program where I had to write 15 things a day that I was grateful for. I was in a state of depression at the time and couldn't believe the turnaround in how I felt in such a short time.
It was incredible!
Because my mind kept focusing on what I was getting or what I did have, I kept finding more and more things to write down.
Where your attention goes, your energy flows.
Whatever you put your attention on expands in that direction.
Why not try it for yourself? You will be amazed at the transformation it will have on how you FEEL towards your life and how patient you become about parenting.
Peace is closer than you think.
