 The Miracle of Gratitude
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________


We are so grateful...Not a day goes by that Jeff and I don't stop and remind ourselves just how blessed we are. We have a wonderful partnership and friendship; our children and grandchildren are safe, healthy and happy; we live in a comfortable home that's clean and cozy and we love the work we do together, the people we meet, the places we go and the things we learn.

We really are thankful!

I believe with all of my heart that gratitude is a magnet for miracles. Each day I awaken and appreciate all that I am, all that I have and all that I experience. It's not always easy, but it's always a blessing.
                                             
 
   

Because November is often thought of as the month of gratitude, I'd like to focus on our blessing this month. I am also doing research this week on Gratitude for the round-table presentation I am preparing for the Native American Women's Conference this month.

How do you nurture gratitude? There are a number of ways that we can cultivate our gratitude a few of my favorites include:
  1. Daily Contemplation - Whether you call it prayer, meditation or a walk in the park, taking time each day to acknowledge your relationship with Creator, God, or the Universe, is important for our evolution toward greater gratitude.
  2. Journal - Writing down that for which we are grateful is another awesome way to accept more gratitude and blessings in our lives. You can purchase a beautiful notebook or journal and have a special time each day you write your thoughts, prayers, dreams and accomplishments. I often draw in my journal as a way to creatively express my joy. I have been know to color in one of my coloring books (mine have positive quotes on them) as a way to show appreciation too.
  3. Using a God Can - I have a tin can with "God" written on the top. Each night before I go to bed, I open my God Can and write down all my troubles on a slip of paper, fold it in half and put the lid back on my God Can. Finally, I turn my can over as a physical representation of "turning over," my troubles to Creator. We put a Gratitude Jar near the front door on Thanksgiving and ask everyone to write something for which they are thankful on a piece of paper and put it in the jar. Each person takes one slip of paper on the way out the door too. It's a fun reminder of our blessings.
  4. Avoiding Negativity - Work to eliminate as much negativity from your sphere of life as possible. It might be choosing to avoid negative television (politically charged TV shows are the worst) and media. Consider a  media free day (or hours if a day is too difficult at first). Anything that makes you feel bad..."poof" it out of your life...later, you'll be thankful you did.
  5. Spread Love - My granddaughter Jill told me once when she was a little girl, "Nana, let's spread glitter where ever we go." So do that...take the time to smile at passers-by, open your heart and feel the joy there and let that joy roll out of you like a wave toward the shore. Dr. Deepak Chopra in his book, The Pathway to Love, says to give a gift to everyone you meet. It doesn't have to be a physical gift it can be the gift of a positive thought, like: "I give you joy, or laughter, or peace." Once you release the thought, it has the power to spread love and improve the vibration of our planet. 
 

Gratitude has an amazing capacity to improve our lives and it begins with our thoughts, which are expressed through our actions. I would love to share my Gratitude Journal with you, if you'll email me at Katreena@CareerServicesNetwork.com I'll send you a PDF version of my journal for you to print out, use, and share with your friends, family and colleagues.
 
I understand that Thanksgiving represents different things to different people, but I hope that you and your family we take time to enjoy one another and count your blessings this month.
