As Thanksgiving approached this year I noticed that suddenly everyone around me started talking about gratitude. The yoga instructors were all reading quotes and writings on gratitude during meditation, however, for me their words began to feel inauthentic. And it became clear to me to write this weeks post on Gratitude.
With your busy schedule, the economy tanking and all that you are juggling, especially now that you have a wedding to plan, it is easy to loose sight of the joy. Being grateful and happy is a conscious choice. It is your choice to feel happy and choose to be happy instead of getting caught up in what is missing or wrong with your situation.
So, what if you woke up today and decided to play a game with yourself and all day, you choose to see what is right with a situation, person or place instead of going to what you think is wrong or missing.
What if instead of complaining that your fiancé does not want to be involved in the wedding plans you choose to be grateful that you have this amazing man in your life. A man who has chosen to be with you “for better or worse till death do you part.”
I know your Mom is getting on your nerves. She thinks it is her wedding and keeps telling you what to do. So, what if you realized how lucky you are because you still have your Mom with you to help you plan your wedding and be there, by your side when you say your vows.
It is really hard to scale back on the things that you know you want to have at your wedding to make it special, amazing and unforgettable- so what if you choose to see that the most important elements of your wedding are you, your fiancée an Officiator and a few close friends and family. The rest is just the icing on the cake.
Choosing to live your life from a place of joy and gratitude is a practice. Every morning when I wake up, before I get out of bed I write a gratitude list in my journal. Then I continue to write a paragraph about what is right in my life. It makes all the difference in how I go about my day. So as you embark on this journey try to remember why you said “yes” and practice letting go of what you think is not right. Embrace and cherish what you do have, right in front of you and I promise you will start to receive miracles.
