A case for Gratitude!

Gratitude was a valuable, daily skill, developed with a meditation/mindfulness practice.

In the beginning, gratitude was an after thought, now it is a cornerstone of my wellbeing.

Anytime my mood dips towards sadness, I remind myself of being blessed with many things.

This is a game changer.

Instead of dissolving into a scenario of me lacking something, I enjoy being grateful for all my gifts.

Being able to stop the barrage of negative thoughts and emotions in its infancy, saves my sanity.

Anytime you feel sad, depressed, or anxious, recite your gratitude list out loud.

Write it down and look at it.

Be grateful for life, be focused, be present.

    Some days I think no one is reading and I am repeating myself

    Thank you again
