Affirmation: Thanksgiving GratitudeNov 28, 2019
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays this time of year because it's a time when family and friends come together in love, remembrance, and gratitude.
If you're struggling to find areas of gratitude, I want first to acknowledge that I know at times in your life, it can be challenging to understand what's going on and see the good in it. I've been there.
I've learned to find both gratitude and lessons in every situation of my life, knowing it will ultimately be for the good of myself, my family or friends, or even my clients. So with that, on this Thanksgiving Day, I offer you this affirmation to give you hope, light, peace, and strength on this day of gratitude.
My Happiness Increases As I Express My Gratitude
I find that being grateful is self-perpetuating. The more grateful I am, the more reasons I find to continue on the path of gratitude. In the calm and stillness of my meditation and prayer, I can easily find many aspects of my life for which I am thankful.
Gratitude now comes easily to me because I am open to all the wonders in my life.
I believe that life should be lived with a positive attitude. This positive attitude is supported by my faith and ability to be appreciative.
As my gratitude grows, I notice my life getting easier, more joyful, and pleasant. When I allow the feelings of gratitude to permeate my mind and my body, I can truly appreciate all the amazing things this life has to offer.
When I find myself feeling negative, I remind myself of all the things in my life for which I am grateful.
I strive to do this automatically and when successful, I immediately feel better, more positive, and at peace.
An attitude of gratitude is contagious.
Others are also affected by my grateful attitude. They notice it, lean into it, and begin to feel better about their lives too. This reinforces my commitment to gratitude and makes me thankful that I can positively impact the lives of others. I want to be a light that has a positive effect on others.
Being appreciative is full of advantages if you allow yourself to see them.
Today, I'm making it a point to take notice of the wonderful things in my life and help others to do the same. The more grateful I am, the more good things come into my life, which only increases my gratitude and for those around me.
