Awareness Of it All

In the past few months the gratitude attitude had been surrounding me. Literally the Universe was sending me sign after sign to be more grateful and thankful.

Then wouldn’t you know during a Sunday mastermind it was decided that for a week we would concentrate on being grateful for everything. We would even journal how we fared. We were to spend a week being grateful.  To be honest, it took effort and real thought to stay in a place of gratitude. Although I wasn’t perfect by any means, I was learning that the more grateful I am for every moment, the easier my life was flowing. I would find solutions to every issue with effortless ease.  I would find that people were reacting to me in a more positive manner and I was being helped, without having to ask, and even the days seemed brighter.

Moving Forward

Every morning before setting foot on the ground, I shall thank God. Perhaps, I shall also try to find more and more things to be thankful for as the days pass. The past few days have been trying but, it was also easy.  When I stopped feeling badly and started feeling grateful for what I have, it instantly changed my perception.  I am always grateful for that. This past week certainly has changed my perception of gratitudes and the joy it brought into my life.
