7 Days 7 Quotes – Gratitude

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, sometimes it was simply 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, and in advance before they do.

As you will see from the quotes on Gratitude that I’ve written and selected, it is a virtue that is very dear to me.

It should be for all who still breath.

If you need one more reason to be thankful, here it is:

More and more researchers are finding that gratitude doesn’t just make you feel like a better person, it’s actually good for your health.

“Clinical trials indicate that the practice of gratitude can have dramatic and lasting effects in a person’s life,” said Robert A. Emmons, professor of psychology at UC Davis.
“It can lower blood pressure, improve immune function and facilitate more efficient sleep.”
One recent study from the University of California San Diego’s School of Medicine found that people who were more grateful actually had better heart health, specifically less inflammation and healthier heart rhythms.
“They showed a better well-being, a less depressed mood, less fatigue and they slept better,” said the study’s author, Paul J. Mills.
“When I am more grateful, I feel more connected with myself and with my environment. That’s the opposite of what stress does.”
When one experiences Transformation, as I have, they will experience the virtues of Inspiration, Hopefulness, Spirituality, Determination, Patience, Creativity, Healing, Prayer & Meditation, Self-Love, Communion With Nature, and Courage. – Kevy Michaels
