Connecting to Gratitude

Do you find yourself chasing things in life to have a sense of happiness and fulfilment?

When you get it, you are then looking at the next thing to chase.

So why aren’t we happy with what we have?

Are you chasing your own dream, or someone else’s?

A lot of the time it is because the reality that we live in, isn’t the reality we think we should be living in.

This partly explains why we get stressed.

Our reality doesn’t match our perception.

But reality can change in a heartbeat – we have absolutely no control over reality.

Therefore, if we link our happiness, our fulfilment, and our levels of joy to certain circumstances that depend on how reality shows up for us then we will always:

➡️ Be at the mercy of circumstance

➡️ be worried that if we do find a level of circumstance that suits our needs or rules for happiness, we will always be worried when that may change.

Most people spend their lives chasing the need for certainty, significance, variety, love, and connection.

The reason so many people are so unhappy is because they are too focused on themselves.

Most people are addicted to trying to change their circumstances but instead of trying to change the stuff in your life, the circumstances in your life, the things in your life, what if you simply changed the way you hold it, mentally, consciously?

If you do that, everything changes.

When you change the way, you look at life, the life you look at changes.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast, turn a house into a home, and can turn a stranger into a friend.

Gratitude helps us to make sense of the past, it brings peace to today and creates an entirely new vision for tomorrow.

If you were to write a gratitude list, what would be at the top?

Who would be on it?

What would be on it?

What events that happened in your life would you want to capture and feel grateful for every time you read it?

Writing a gratitude list is probably the cheapest and most beneficial exercise that you could possibly do that would guarantee you fulfilment in life.

Go ahead and write your gratitude list.

What can you, be grateful for right now in your life up to this point, knowing that everything has served you up to this point?

Begin to feel fulfilled.
