When everything seems to be too stressful, tiring, exhausting or futile, taking moments of gratitude helps put everything into perspective. It can become a marvelous challenge to stop and focus on only what we are so grateful for in our current life. Offering thanks for all the learning, lessons, growth and wonder of each day is a good way to begin. Happy for each breath we take and each slice of beauty we see can inspire us throughout the day. Just a butterfly going by, a new blossom on a tree, a child's precious laugh or a bird swooping through the trees is pause to stop and take in all the unique and cherished things life brings to us every day.
Whispering into our open, loving Hearts happy, fulfilling, wondrous moments that maybe we just catch out of the corners of our eyes is enough to stop and offer sincere thanks for all we receive each and every day of our lives.
The more we focus our attention on what we LOVE about life, including ourselves, the more abundant LOVE comes our way. It doesn't mean not to discern what doesn't feel like us. It is important to know where we stand and what doesn't resonate with who we are and yet, with an open heart and mind, many of the treasures of life can and will reveal themselves.
Joy is not hiding somewhere for us to find and embrace it. Joy is within us at anytime we choose to remember, it is our inherent spiritual nature. Our Spirit is Joyful because our Spirit is directly linked to the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy. It is the true breath of inspiration. Gratitude for inspiration is a wonderful way to remember our very Spirit is capable of making us very happy because it reminds us who we are and why we are here.
We are here to be happy and we do that through moments of sincere gratitude. Truly life is a blessing and truly we do not walk our paths through life by ourselves. We are in fact surrounded by Love, Light and Truth, like a living, loving Grace and practiced gratitude moves us much closer to that lovely truthful union. We might have to apply lots of Faith to remember how much Love there is within us and around us at all times, but it is there regardless if we can feel it or not. Trust is a powerful tool when we have our moments of doubt.
Moments of doubt can be transformed through sincere moments of gratitude. It is like taking a negative energy and letting it go to the breeze and feel a fresh new wind bringing you a brand new inspiring, uplifting, wonderful perspective after the old concepts have passed away. We have that power to let go of the old and bring in what is much more positive.
Gratitude for our life, our loved ones and our self shares that very LOVE of life back to life itself. It generates more and more positive energy and change through our sincere intentions.
When life becomes too much, create a bit of time to celebrate moments of sincere gratitude and see if it doesn't change your perspective for the better! Let LOVE continue to show you the way! Sincere gratitude enhances the enriching experience of celebrating all that we truly LOVE! It is a gift that truly keeps on giving!
