January: Gratitude…

Saying for the Month of January: Gratitude… In EVERYTHING Give Thanks. EVERYTHING!

When my Children were small, I began having a ‘Saying of the Month’ to begin sharing some of my Values.  Long before there were ‘memes’, I would put index cards and sticky notes with the saying, and we would repeat it throughout the day, in the car, and whenever we were together.  If the idea appeals to you, create your own, or use mine.  Later this year, I may offer them in a booklet form, as well as cards.  Would that be beneficial for you?  Let’s share ideas in the comments.

In my forthcoming book, “Split-Second Transformation ~ Change Your Words, Change Your Life:  31 Daily Practices”, three of the chapters are focused on Gratitude.  It is that important!


What if there is just ONE simple secret to accessing Happiness?  Yes.  It’s Gratitude, the key to unlocking abundant Blessings.  In EVERYTHING give thanks!  What if you trained yourself to have “Thank You” as your constant mantra?


What if your first groggy thoughts were “Thank You, thank you, thank you…” every morning.  Thank you that I woke up on this side of the dirt, breathing free oxygen!  Thank you that my pencil landed on the chair instead of the floor.  Thank you that I got a bit of exercise when it fell to the floor.  YES, even in the tiny things, be Grateful!


Thank you for redeeming my time.  Thank you for Your shield of protection.  Thank you for the parking space or green light.  Or even, thank you for the red light, which may have prevented a bigger inconvenience further down the road.


When your circumstances are harsh, remember to take a deep breath, breathing in gratitude, breathing out stress.  Repeat.  Repeat again.  Really, where you are right this second is the only place you have to take the next step from, so choose to whisper (or shout) THANK YOU! 


You are Loved exactly who and where you are right now.  Receive it.  Believe it.  💖
