What is the point in having gratitude?
In a journal every night before you go to sleep write down at least five things you are grateful for.
Practicing regular gratitude is a very powerful way to reprogram the mind for the positive. If you are looking to take risks. Invest in your dreams. Quit your job to pursue you passion. A positive mindset is very supportive. It’s so much easier for you to jump off that cliff feeling like, and knowing you are going to grow wings on the way down or you will have a learning opportunity and the next time you jump you will thrive.
The best way to reprogram the mind that will autopilot towards a positive outcome is to write things you are grateful every night before you go to bed. There are so many things to be grateful for.
If you are having a hard time thinking of things to be grateful for right now, I totally respect where you are at. I am here to give you some simple basic things you can be grateful for to get you started and you can launch from there.
First you sense of taste that allows you to enjoy all the amazing flavours there are in the world, around the world from a beautifully hand made pasta with a fresh tomato sauce, to creme brullee, creamy mashed potatoes, a roast that was in the sous vide for 72 hours and melts in your mouth. There is a reason so many of us have comfort foods. I for sure have comfort foods of my own. I love sweet potato fries and gyoza (not at the same time).
Your sense of smell that allows you to smell the sweet smell of jasmine flowers in full bloom, the bbq grilling steak, potatoes and sweet corn mmmmmm my mouth is watering.
Your sense of touch that allows you to feel the touch of a loved one. The feeling of a cashmere sweater wrapped around your body. The feeling of soft fluffy socks wrapped around your feet as you snuggle up on the couch under a weighted soft blanket reading a book.
You sight that allows you to enjoy the beauty of all the flowers blooming in the spring. The leaves changing all the beautiful colours on the trees in the fall. The curvy woman wearing a sexy dress that hugs her curves like a clove commanding your attention. A Bugatti Veyron that drives past you and captivates you with it’s sexy curves and the rumble of the engine.
There is so much to be grateful for. To make it even more simple your heart beats 24/7 so you can live. You lungs breath 24/7 and you don’t even have to think about it. You miracle of a body digests food and turns it into hair, nails, skin, organs and so on. You don’t even have to think about or know how it works. Your body is a miracle that endures so much abuse and mistreatment and doesn’t complain. It just keeps doing it’s thing so you can have this human experience.
Practice seeing all the simple basic things that are happening with no effort on your part that you should have gratitude for. From there you can allow the gratitude to flow and expand from there.
Try practicing gratitude every night before you go to bed for a month and see where your mind is at after 30 days.
All the Love,
