Thank you, merci,danke u,ありがとう,hvala, gracias,спасибо,谢谢,!
Doesn’t it feel good? It does not matter where you are from, how rich or poor you are, if you are old or young it is healing! And yes, it feels so good. Not just to you but all involved. Simple yet amazing! It is a gift that costs nothing.
I don’t think I need to remind anyone that today is Thanks Giving Day in the U.S.
But, I do feel that this day has an immense power. This magical day is truly about gratitude…and that is the magic potion that brings smiles to someone’s face, warms up our hearts and connects us all!
So, I guess the BIGGER question is…How can we keep this magic alive each and every day?
Don’t you want to bring smiles to someone’s face each day? Would you like to connect more deeply? Do you want to hold this feeling of gratitude and share it with others?
My friends, we really can do this! We all did it today, right? Well, we have the magic to do it each day.
Each day simply give thanks and praise. Simple!
Really make a conscious effort to do it. Each morning make a list of things you are grateful for and finish each day by writing more. Even a seemingly ‘bad’ event or ‘difficult person’ can be something to be grateful for. Try it!
Take the time to say thank-you at least five times each day. Go further and relate to those people with genuine gratitude. Let them know—really know! It can change everything. Speak from your heart… see what happens!
I sincerely believe that being grateful brings more happiness to everyone’s life. Personally, I find when I focus on my blessings; I have a more positive attitude and much greater ability to problem solve. Really, think about it! When you look at any situation from a place of lack or making it wrong you only create a barrier. You resent, you blame and live more in fear. In gratitude, I find I see every situation as a gift. This opens me up to new possibilities.
Giving thanks also improves your relationships. Try it! Say thank you and watch your life change. Simple yes! Sometimes hard to do… sure! Especially those days when your son, daughter, partner or coworker is driving you crazy. You never know that crazy day might be a blessing you never could have imagined. So give gratitude anyways! It just might have the potential to have immense impact.
Having gratitude is all about attitude. Make it your greatest gift…adopt this attitude, choice and habit. Everything you do comes back… with that
I give thanks to all of you! Each one of you is magical. 🙂
Much love always Lorraine
