Let Gratitude Be Your Attitude – Day 298 of 365 Days to a Better You

Gratitude gets a lot of good publicity these days. You can scarcely scroll down your social media feeds without seeing at least one reminder to be more grateful.

You’re told you should be grateful for family and friends. You’re told you should be grateful because you have more stuff than some other people. You’re told you should be grateful because you’re still breathing and walking upright; a joy denied others.

These are excellent reasons to be grateful. Yet, as noble as they are, they still miss the point. Gratitude, like most other higher vibration human feelings, does not flow from the outside in. It must grow from the inside out.

We must plant it and grow it and nourish it whether the outside world presents us with reasons to feel it or not.

As our gratitude for all the blessings great and small in our lives grows within us, we begin to attract a grateful energy back to us. This creates a powerful energetic loop of gratitude that keeps us warm on the coldest of life’s nights and in the bright sunshine of our greatest joy.

Gratitude is more than something we feel for the people and the things around us. It’s an energy that we build within ourselves. The more we feel it, the more it grows.

Start every day with a giant thank you for all you are, all you have, and all you love. Then let that feeling inform your whole day.

To all my American readers, I wish you and those important to you a Happy Thanksgiving. To readers elsewhere, you don’t need a special day to feel grateful. Every day is that day.

In case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
