"I started out giving thanks for small things, and the more thankful I become, the more my bounty increased. That's because what you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life."
Congratulations on reaching the end of our 28 day Gratitude Challenge inspired by the book "The Magic"! I hope you've become more in touch with your control over your mood through the practice of gratitude and that your spirit has been lifted to a more positive place. I hope you've even witnessed some events in your life turn in your favor through the practice of gratitude over the past month.
You now have a solid foundation to practicing gratitude every day. I know some days you may not be able to write everything down in a journal, but you can always practice gratitude throughout your day, every day. I can't go a day now without doing it. It is part of my habits, and my routine and what makes me feel good. A few tips for you as this challenge has come to an end.
Every morning when you wake up, before you reach for your phone, just say a simple thank you for this day! Be grateful for the morning and the exciting things that await you in your day ahead.
Throughout your day remember to be thankful for all the good things that happen. You can say thank you before something happens too, to ensure a good outcome.
Before you go to bed, think about the good things that happened during your day and what you're grateful for.
These simple things, if done every day, will keep your mind positive and heart grateful. Whether you refer to your higher power as God or the Universe, you can establish a better connection to them through gratitude. Remember, we know about the law of the universe and that like attracts like. Gratitude has been practiced throughout the old testament and in ancient civilizations and tribes. Those people all knew the power of gratitude for receiving good things in their lives. The power of that energy is within us all too. So remember to keep yourself in a positive state to attract positive things.
