I recently read Maria Shriver's book, "I've Been Thinking." What a great book to have on your nightstand or with you on the go when you need some positive inspiration. Maria writes openly about what she has learned throughout her life and shares her wisdom with her readers.
One of the chapters she writes about the importance of expressing gratitude. She writes, "The power of gratitude can turn a bad day into a good one. It reboots your spirit. It makes you look at your life in a different way. Being thankful can make all the difference in your day." We can all benefit from making a more conscious effort to be express gratitude. Whether it be a new daily ritual of writing what you are grateful for each day or simply being more consciously aware of what your blessings are. When we slow down enough to be present in our lives we realize how much there is to be grateful for. My challenge to you today is to slow down, take a few deep breaths and recognize all that there is to be grateful for. Tomorrow when you wake, do it all over again and see what a difference it can make!
