If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice. ~Meister Eckhart
This week we're celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S., which I've come to appreciate so much more as I've grown older. As children we tended to enjoy most the holidays that would bring us the most gifts, but Thanksgiving Day reminds us of all the amazing gifts with which we are already blessed.
I love challenging myself to simply add gratitude into any given moment. It's amazing the transformations that can take place! I truly believe the act of being deeply grateful is the most wonderful state of being we can be in. Adding gratitude can turn a task into a privilege -- and often even turn a challenge into a blessing. Suddenly everything can change -- all just because you found a way to add gratitude into the equation.
Give it a try over the next 24 hours. Perhaps a few times during the day you can try saying something along the lines of, "There may be some things not going my way right now, but here are some things I'm definitely so grateful for..." The beautiful and amazing part about this is that it is such a healthy, organic feeling for us, and most of the time you will actually begin to feel a lightness in your chest right away, as you deeply and more gratefully breathe life fully in. To this day, feeling and expressing gratitude is the most magical, restorative elixir that I've ever come across.
