November 27 ~  Gratitude Unlocks the Fullness of Life You Are Special

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a hourse into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates vision for tomorrow." ~ Melody Beattie

Health, Mind & Body

Begin today by saying "thank you." There is so much to be grateful for. Each new day is 24 new hours to live... and celebrate life.

"Man absolutely cannot live by himself," explained philosopher Erich Fromm.

Be grateful for everything and everyone. To look at life with gratitude is to clearly see opportunities. Even at those times of the greatest challenges, with gratitude, any difficulty can be transformed into a blessing, into a meaningful lesson of growth.

Failures are merely stepping stones to success. Pain moves the heart to coping, to healing and the discovery of greater compassion for others.

"Gratitude," said jazz musician Lionel Hampton, "is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind."

Celebrate your blessings today: All that you have... All that is RIGHT in your life.  Make it a routine to write your celebrations down daily in a journal and share your gratitude with others. Gratitude brings peace and hope. Gratitude is contagious.
