The book, The Power by Rhonda Byrne, tells us to put forth positivity 51% of the time, in the form of gratitude or positive thoughts and words, to tip the vibrational scales in our favor.
After listening to this audiobook, I felt compelled to incorporate the practice of gratitude into my daily life. Most notably, it became a part of my morning commute. I made it a habit to say gratitude prayers in my car on the way to work. Most days, I put something inspirational on the car stereo, and I begin my list. Sometimes I say the list out loud for the universe to hear, and other times I say it in my head. The good news: both methods work!
Practicing gratitude isn’t just about the words. I’ve also found that it influences my actions. I now express my gratitude more abundantly to the people around me. I am often prompted, during my commute, to call my husband and thank him for his contributions to our family. Sometimes, once I’ve parked my car, I may even send a loving text message to thank someone for something special they've done. By the time I get into work, I am usually basking in gratitude and oozing with an upbeat, positive, and energetic attitude.
Practicing gratitude has transformed my life in a million ways. It has helped me appreciate what I already have, instead of wanting something different or new. It has deepened several relationships. It allowed me to set a positive example for the young woman, who owns the business where I work. I have witnessed a change in how she treats her clients. It has made me a softer, kinder, more loving person, and I feel a new sense of pride and humility.
I enjoy sharing my passion for gratitude, because there is no denying it has tipped the scales and unlocked the door to abundance in my life. I hope you too will create a gratitude practice, so you can experience its transformative power. Blessings to you!
