In The Beginning - Gratitude
“Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness. It’s the spark that lights a fire of joy in your soul.” – Amy Collette
Gratitude given from the heart is one of the greatest presents you can give. The cost is just a moment of your time but the reward is priceless. Every Tuesday I host a show on Facebook called Gratitude Happy Hour. Today my guest John Fiore and I discussed how important it is to examine the choices we make and living with the consequences. We decide every second what we are doing or not doing. No one else. There is nothing outside of us that can control us unless we choose to allow it.
When I decided years ago to let gratitude be my routine as soon as I wake up, it changed me. Something clicked and it was like a puzzle piece falling into place. It’s a way to set the intention and tone for the whole day. Not every day is peaches and cream, but at least it is better with a positive mindset because then we can pause, breathe, and tap into gratitude to help us cope with anything that does challenge us. This is how I choose to live my life. I fully believe it is a choice.
