“Gratitude allows us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those moments of awe that change forever how we experience the world.” — John Milton
Gratitude is one of the most powerful emotions we can experience. Consistent moments of gratitude can literally re-wire your brain. Life can look happier, feel happier, be happier for focusing on what you have to be grateful for.
I encourage people to bookend their days. Begin each day with intention, putting in the front of your mind what you want for your day. Today I will be sober. I will be kind. I will bring more loving attention to my kids…sig other…parents. I will be more aware of my own needs. I will be fully authentic.
And I suggest ending each day with thoughts of gratitude. What receives your attention, you get more of. So if you’re head hits the pillow with the warm, peaceful thoughts of all there is in your life to appreciate, guess what you’ll receive more of.
