#Gratitude is one of the most powerful resources we have at our disposal. It has the ability to unlock the fullness of life and as author Melody Beattie puts it -turn what we have into enough, our denials into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity.

We also have an opportunity to use the power of gratitude to list how we can be of service to the lives of our fellows. As Adam Grant says “𝙙𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙟𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙗𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨. 𝘾𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙗𝙪𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙩𝙤𝙤”
A grateful person is often more 𝐨𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜, 𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐜, 𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐡𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜, 𝐝𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐝, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐣𝐨𝐲𝐟𝐮𝐥 than a person stuck in #resentment, #fear, and views the world though a lens of #scarcity.
Expressing regular gratitude has been attributed to feeling stronger when faced with challenges, feeling less envious, and experiencing less stress.
Rather than simply making a list of things we enjoy about our life. It also includes the mundane, the hardships that have allowed us to grow, as well as our contributions to other
Gratitude as an action means it’s a verb and works best when it is embodied or acted upon, spoken aloud and is incredibly fulfilling when it connects us to someone else.
