Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
~ Melody Beattie
I always hear my father say, “I’m so grateful to live here in America!” He’ll voice this out loud with a glowing smile in random moments while driving down the highway or as we walk out of a restaurant with expanding waistlines after eating a big breakfast.
Born and raised in the Philippines, he moved to the United States in his early 20’s and he definitely wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Many of his American dreams came true and he continues to be deeply grateful for the opportunity to live here, even after 40 years.
Through him, I’ve learned to express gratitude for everyday moments that can easily be overlooked.
And to do this throughout my day too.
As I’m washing my hands, I feel grateful for running water.
Grabbing produce off the grocery shelves, I’m grateful for our farmers and suppliers for all their hard work.
Seeing the morning sun peek through the blinds, I’m grateful for another day to experience life.
The more present I am to gratitude, the more opportunities I have to love, to share, to forgive and to stay connected with my Soul and purpose.
I’ve created this beautiful 10-minute Gratitude Meditation to help you tap into this uplifting energy of gratitude. I’ve also infused this meditation with healing light too!
You can listen to this at any time of the day, especially when you want to really amp up your shine!
Remember, what you appreciate… APPRECIATES!
