Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
Gratefulness, gratitude. Being thankful for everything in your life is an important tool to use. If someone reached out to you when you needed it and you didn’t express your gratitude, it’s just as the quotation above states. You wrapped your gift but there it sits, doing no one any good.
The next time someone offers you a hand, don’t brush it away. When someone reaches out, think of that person as a spiritual messenger. Would you EVER turn down a helping hand from Spirit? From God? From the Universe? Reach back and hold on tight.
Give thanks to ordinary people who offer a hand. How do you know they weren’t sent from above?
Be grateful for all the gifts that come your way whether they are a hand up out of the abyss, or a smile from a friend or a phone call when you need it. Whatever comes your way, be grateful and ALWAYS, ALWAYS express that gratitude out loud. It may sound silly when you start, but eventually it will become second nature as it has with me. Whenever something good happens in my life I ALWAYS look up and say:
It’s not just when something unseen changes for the better, if someone does something unexpected and it brings joy to my life, I always express that gratitude. It’s how I live my life now. Make this simple change, and I guarantee you’ll see the world change around you.
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
