gratitude  On Thanksgiving we’re reminded to be grateful.  What a wonderful holiday.

Yet I often find that gratitude is one of the most underutilized, and most incredibly powerful tools, for changing our life and manifesting desirable experiences.

A New Car?  You Bet I’m Grateful!

Most of us can find gratitude for the “big” stuff – our spouse, children, the unexpected influx of cash, the promotion, etc.

But who made the rule that you can’t be grateful for anything?  Especially for the things you normally take for granted!  Just because you normally take something for granted, after all, doesn’t mean it’s not worthy of your gratitude!

Taking breaths, a functioning brain, sunshine, life in all its glorious abundance surrounding you, electricity, and your innate creativity are all examples of things you can feel grateful for right now.  If you choose to do so.

And I’ll add one more biggie (that we often take for granted): our unlimited potential to be amazing creators!  Even if you’re just learning to harness your awesome power or even if you don’t always use it to its fullest extent, why not choose to be grateful for this incredible ability you were born with?

Make A Game Out of It; See How Many Things You Can Find to Be Grateful For Today

The best thing about being grateful for something is, of course, that thing will grow and expand right before your eyes.  And when you’re feeling grateful for the “little” things (those things you normally take for granted), the massive power of gratitude’s energy will grow and expand other wonderful things in your life too.

Take a cue from our Thanksgiving holiday today and make it your business to find as many things as you can to be grateful for.  Make a game out of it and see just how many things you’ve overlooked that you can be grateful for.  You’ll be reminded, once again, just how empowering that state of being is for your creative abilities!
