No matter what’s happening in the world, I’m finding gratitude somewhere and somehow.
Here and now, I’m easily finding gratitude because my son is coming home for the holidays. I’ll be finding him at the airport tonight.
Yesterday, I was finding gratitude at a medical center.
I was also finding gratitude when I saw these other images yesterday.
I’m finding this song on YouTube when I search for “finding gratitude”:
I’ll be finding gratitude if I find comments from you below, because
Of course, I’m finding gratitude for all who helped me create today’s post and for YOU.
Martin Seligman, sometimes referred to as the ‘father of positive psychology’ is well known for his work on Learned Helplessness and working with soldiers who have PTSD. At the core of his work is a basic principle: knowing and experiencing what it is that makes you happy is the first step in achieving it. Seligman and others have been advocates for the benefits of gratitude in changing stress, anxiety, relationship problems, and more. It’s a rewiring of the brain that is so simple and yet so profound.
But going further back, the spiritual greats like Meister Eckhart, St. Paul, Buddha, all speak of the centrality of gratitude for a fulfilling life. Again there is a basic principle, that once we realise we have life, that we have enough, that we are good enough, there is a sense of contentment and fulfilment in a spirtual sense that…

It’s been way too long since my last post. Time for some updates! Monday, I went to my ITTP class, and we were discussing gratitude journals. I must admit, I missed last Wednesday’s class – and I didn’t know we were talking about this subject. Meanwhile, in my last post I had mentioned that I […]

I woke up today feeling very grateful. I couldn’t help but allow my mind to travel back to a time of outhouses, oil lamps and no running water. I wonder what families talked about as they sat around the dinner table. There were no cell phones giving off notifications every second and no stories of impending doom coming from a news channel as the noise continuously blared from the tv. We are so fortunate but yet conversations would make you think the sky is getting ready to fall. What you talk about you get more of. How you think and where you place your focus determines what you attract more of. Resist and you attract more opportunities to do just that. Practice gratitude and the Universe delivers more situations to feel grateful for. Sometimes it is clear to see why we are in the state we are in but just…
