Daily Gratitude is Essential if you desire to be happy, content, and at peace with your life – daily! In other words, you must create making being grateful a daily habit. Why? Well, because of the following quote being true!
“People do not decide their futures, they decide their habits, and their habits decide their futures.”Matthias Alexander
Therefore, one needs to be aware of this fact on a deep ‘inner level.’ After all, we are defined by our actions, and our actions – our habits/how we act, determines our future! In addition, and why daily gratitude is essential, is because gratitude journal writing is the easiest and simplest way to focus and develop a good daily habit!
Gratitude Journal Writing
Daily gratitude is essential because it is a critical mindset matter. And that is because we are a product of what we Think, Say and Do. Therefore, we need to develop the daily habit of being grateful for what we have now, in the present! In other words, we are focusing our mindset on what we have today, in the here and now! Above all, this means we are subsequently NOT focusing on what we don’t have, but on what we do have! In other words, the more you are grateful for what you have now, the more present you become. And that is why daily gratitude is essential. After all, happiness, inner peace and contentment is about focusing our mindset on the here and now!
“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”Marcus Tullius Cicero)
How to Express Gratitude – daily!
The answer is straightforward. Therefore, one must simply develop the daily habit of writing 5 things that you are grateful for in a journal. And what could not be easier or simpler than that! This why daily gratitude is essential. But, you know it still never ceases to amaze me how many cannot create such a life-changing daily habit! After all, unless you maintain your gratitude and enthusiasm for life, the rigors of daily life can and will wear you down. Similarly, unless you have a daily connection and conversation with your God/Spirit/Higher Power/etc., you will feel that you are simply going through the motions of living!
In addition, rather than criticizing others, we need to spend time – daily to stop and Look Within (a good book!) because it follows: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life. Above all, we must ask ourselves: How much am I doing about my Anger? How much am I doing about my Attachments? How much am I doing about my Jealousy? How much am I doing about my Pride? Therefore, if we seek to transform our life, these are just some of the things that we need to check on ourselves – daily!
Start a Gratitude Journal – today!
You need to start creating the daily habit of writing about something you are grateful for – daily! In addition, we need to all share the gratitude secret. If you cannot daily find something to be grateful for, no matter how small, then you will never find peace of mind. For instance, feeling grateful for something and not expressing it in your gratitude journal is like wrapping a present and not giving it! Therefore, be aware that once you write something down, it forces you to focus on it. Think about that! A Better Way to Live/
Above all, expressing gratitude- daily in your Gratitude Journal is like taking a ‘vitamin pill’ for your soul. Similarly, you can think of gratitude as being ‘the most powerful drug in the world.‘ Therefore, the magic with this product is that it available to all of us, and it’s absolutely FREE of any charges!!
“Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things humans can do for each other.”Randy Pausch)
Have an ‘Attitude of Gratitude‘
Be aware that you cannot be grateful and unhappy at the same time! In addition, this is something that each of us can put to the test. Similarly, when you think about this at a deep ‘inner level’, you will prove it correct – and you will smile! After all, when you are grateful for all of your past experiences, you awaken to the fact that they are all part of your soul’s growth. And this is why daily gratitude is essential. Because gratitude also links us with God and our fellow human beings.
Therefore, it follows that when we lack gratitude, we become fearful, anxious, even depressed. Why? Because we are focusing on what we don’t have, rather than on what we do have! In addition, if you are feeling a lack of gratitude, ‘look within’ and ask yourself if you are expressing gratitude? www.happify.com/gratitude/
