The Habit of Gratitude

As with any ritual, habit, or new thing we start, gratitude takes time to cultivate, but it’s not hard! The simplest form of practicing gratitude is jotting down just one thing each morning and/or each evening for which you’re grateful.

Chances are you’ll immediately think of more things, and that’s fine. Write those down too. However, it’s important for this to be and feel natural and spontaneous rather than a chore, so just one thing is utterly manageable.

The best way to start any new habit such as gratitude is through simple things added over time.

When starting a new practice, whether it’s journaling about gratitude or your daily creative ritual, it’s best to start out simply… so that you may simply start.

How to Express Gratitude – K.I.S.S. – Keep is Super Simple

If we can have a practice that we can incorporate into our daily lives just by noticing things that are already happening around us… just by not taking things for granted… just by becoming more aware of benefits that we are receiving… looking at life like a gift… just using the language of gifts and givers and receivers.

[I call it] ‘trafficking in the language of thankfulness’… you don’t have to do anything special, you don’t have to carve out any special time of the day.

~Robert A. Emmons, Ph. D., Professor of Psychology at UC Davis, Gratitude researcher

“[Through daily incorporating gratitude] it just becomes very automatic and very habitual, and I think that’s when gratitude will achieve its most power.

Being Grateful for What You Have

This video below does a great job of depicting how there are times we can get so caught up in wanting what others have that we forget how much we have already. We can forget to be grateful for the blessings.

Wanting more is not wrong; it is a natural progression of life and evolution. Desire is that which propels us to do more and be more… to grow and to become. But to remember and appreciate our current blessings keeps us grounded in gratitude.

Toward positive reminders, and to uplift and inspire your days ahead, we hope you’ll enjoy this poignant video clip and return often to peruse these 90 Gratitude Quotes.

Heart Power

Love all whom you encounter today,
for we are all beings seeking love.
It is the absence of love that breeds evil,
and the presence of love that heals all hurts

Love is the power that dissolves all shadows.

Be present with love and your life will reflect that light.

The Gravity of Gratitude

Gravity is described as a force that draws objects to its center. Gravity is an invisible magnetic central core that keeps all things in balance and grounded.

The simple daily practice of gratitude makes a huge and complex difference. With genuine gratitude orbiting your aura, you will attract more positivity and happiness in your life.

Daily gratitude becomes a core of gravity at the center of your life, naturally attracting and anchoring more good to you, and from within you. Once gratitude becomes a way of life, life changes for the better, no matter what happens.

Gratitude and Joy are eternal twins. Where there is one… there is always the other.
