Gratitude. Almost guaranteed to raise our vibration.

“Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.”


Gratitude is absolutely the way to bring more into your life.

Gratitude attracts what we want


The universal law of attraction says that we will attract into our life the things we think about and focus on. When you are consciously aware of your blessings, and are grateful for them, you are focusing more clearly on what you do want in your life and attracting it to you.

Gratitude improves relationships

We learn the importance of saying “thank you” as little children. We are taught that habit because it is “good manners.” This childhood lesson is extremely powerful.

Think about those people that you know who are most appreciative of you – and let you know it. How do you feel about them? Be grateful for people, their contributions, their talents and their actions – and make sure you let them know how you feel.

Gratitude helps us learn

Behind every problem lies an opportunity. Being grateful for our situation – even if we don’t like everything about it – allows us to be thankful for the opportunity to learn something new.

Gratitude improves
problem solving skills

Too often we look at problem solving with a very jaded view. “Something is wrong. We have barriers in our way. Then, we have to put in effort to fix it.”

Conversely, when we think about what we are grateful for we open our minds up to new possibilities and connections. We also enter a problem solving situation with a perspective of improvement and opportunity rather than challenge or issue.

Gratitude reduces negativity

It is hard to be negative about your situation when you are thinking about things for which you are grateful. One of the fastest ways to improve your mood or outlook is to count your blessings.

Count blessings not Sheep

      Gosh, thanks! Much appreciated.
      Not doing much just now (reason for late reply), due to migraine and the mysterious disappearance of an ‘update’ button on my edit page.
      Will look into it when everything clears a little…

    The sun is setting in my day
    I am blessed in every way.
    The songs of the birds that beg me stay.
    The gifts of living in a quiet way.
    The loving mercy of good friends.
    Oh, my blessings never end.

        Aww thanks 🙂 Most kind of you.
        Gratitude rocks! I think any day we choose to make gratitude part of our lives becomes a better day because of it.

Uhmm, I’m planning to do another piece on gratitude, I’ll quote your poem in there, if that’s OK (credited, of course. Don’t hold your breath tho, electronic media is making my head swim at present, so a bit slow the now! Soonish, hopefully tho…)
