Why wait until Thanksgiving to express your gratitude? You have the luxury of living your joyous life every single day of the year. Be intentional at recognizing your blessings and remind yourself that showing gratitude for all you already have only does more to attract further blessings into your life.
Here are five ways that showing gratitude attracts more abundance into your life:
Be thankful for the little things. When you have an attitude of gratitude, you’ll learn to appreciate the little things. The sweetest blessings come in the smallest forms. Once you learn to love, recognize, and be thankful for the little things in life, your quality of life will increase because you’ll be aware of how fortunate you really are.
You’ll develop impeccable radar. If you often reflect on the fortunate events in your life, you’ll be able to spot a good opportunity a mile away. For example, you’ll be able to smell a promotion in the works or an opportunity to bring your family closer. Actively seeking new opportunities to increase your personal quality of life and that of the ones nearest and dearest to your heart will fill your heart with accomplishment.
Give, and it shall be given back to you. Giving to the less fortunate. When you’re thankful for the bed you sleep in at night, the roof shielding you and your family from the cold, the clothes on your back, the family on your couch, and the food on your plates, you’re aware of how fortunate you are. As a result, you’re more likely to jump at the opportunity to help someone in a worse position. The smallest efforts from you could make a world of difference in the life of someone else. Helping your neighbor craft her resume will help her provide for her family. Donating your used clothing will help keep the homeless warm. And taking part in a walk for breast cancer can give life! The thing about helping others is that it helps you too.
You’ll reach higher. Your grateful ways are a blessing. You appreciate life more intensely when you’re grateful. You also see each day as another chance to bring more joy to your reality, lifestyle, and future.
- You can be grateful for what you have and desire to reach for more. Constantly improving your life is good for you, your family, and others.
Taking others into consideration. When you’re satisfied with your life and feel genuinely happy, you tend to treat others very kindly. You’ll be more likely to hold the door open at the mall for a stranger or pick up a fallen cane for an elderly man. Your own happiness is magnified when you help bring joy to others.
Your life begins to take a turn for the better when you keep in mind how fortunate you really are. The smallest details can boost your spirits and your confidence Starting today, take your attitude of gratitude to new heights and make every day a personal day of thanksgiving!
