“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.”
Willie Nelson Singer/Songwriter
When you count your blessings one by one, be thankful for the opportunity to do so. Life has so many ups and downs, it is inevitable. Things happen on a daily basis that can affect your mood, that is a given. When you start to be aware that there is power behind shining light on those wondrous things that touch your world, you step into the role of conscious creator of your experience in life. If you want to bring the positive energy flow all around you, shift your focus onto what is going right in your life and be extraordinarily grateful. If you want opportunity, recognize and appreciate what has gotten you to this point so far. If you want to experience beauty and joy, look around and nod in admiration at the glorious world that has already been introduced. Because when you stand in awareness and gratitude, the universe will respond with more of the same. If you set up a mantra of gratitude in appreciation for your health, for your blessing of friends and family, for your financial abundance, for your tremendous intellect, and for your ability to just be, you have already created a beautiful day by coloring it that way. When you introduce these kind of centering thoughts, you are essentially creating a shield of love that will surround and protect you when you make this shift. The world will respond to you in accordance to what you put out there. Your feelings are an indicator of what you believe to be true. When you shift your focus with an attitude of gratitude, then you will feel the empowered change in your universe that will guide your journey. So, how about it-are you ready to make the shift? Just ask yourself daily – attitude of gratitude, what are you grateful for? And away you go into the flow of a whole new reality!
