Gratitude transforms any challenge into empowerment.
You have the power to transform your life experience, and it begins with the consistent practice of gratitude. First thing in the morning, prior to looking at your phone, having coffee or beginning your day, spend a few moments outside and say out loud all for which you are grateful. This moment is filled with limitless possibility. Therefore; the conscious act to begin with gratitude sets the tone for how you will choose to experience your day.
Begin with the easy things such as the fact that you have a safe place to sleep, a fridge filled with food, loving friends and support. Move on to whatever you see – if it’s sunny, be grateful for the sunshine. If cloudy, appreciate the beauty of the clouds and the coolness. Notice the changing seasons and listen to the symphony of life as it awakens.
Once this energy is engaged you may discover that your gratitude extends to the challenges you face. A shift in perception transforms how you interpret your journey. Ultimately, gratitude becomes the foundation of a peacefulness that cannot be shaken by outside events. This is empowerment.
