Gratitude is something that I express everyday, throughout the day, for the smallest of blessings.
An old friend from time to time would ask me to drop everything and have either a gratitude or appreciation prayer…or maybe it was an affirmation.
Anyway, the idea was that I would sit for as long as I could, say 15 – 30 minutes, expressing out loud those things for which I was grateful. I was amazed at how many things I could recite, from universal to personal, the sun, the air, food, health, wisdom, finances, healing, purpose, and on and on.
I felt so wonderful after performing this exercise that I do it regularly. But more importantly, I begin each day with a prayer and meditation on Gratitude. I thank God each day for the simplest of blessings, right as they manifest.
