Gratitude The Secret Agent

Feel Good Friday (Gratitude)

Gratitude is secret service agent that works miracles in our everyday lives. Practicing gratitude adjusts your attitude to a position of love and abundance almost instantly. Gratitude shines light in dark places. We must train our minds and hearts to live in a constant state of gratefulness. 

“The benefits of practicing gratitude are nearly endless. People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they're thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have stronger immune systems. And gratitude doesn't need to be reserved only for momentous occasions: Sure, you might express gratitude after receiving a promotion at work, but you can also be thankful for something as simple as a delicious piece of pie.” ~ Happify Daily
Gratitude is the gift that keeps on giving. Gratitude is powerful, it opens up your heart and it attracts a continuous flow of more to be grateful about–and it is contagious.

Look around you, what are your grateful for today? Close your eyes and think of your week. Does someone come to mind you are especially grateful? Why not tell them?

Now is the time to be grateful, keep gratefulness flowing from your hearts.
