“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
― Melody Beattie
This is my favorite gratitude quote, so I’m sharing it again this year. It originally came to me from Melody Beattie’s book, The Language of Letting Go, Daily Meditations on Codependency, in the meditation for August 1st.
Why August instead of November? Because we need the magic of gratitude every day.
She goes on to write:
“Gratitude makes things right. Gratitude turns negative energy into positive energy. There is no situation or circumstance so small or large that it is not susceptible to gratitude’s power. We can start with who we are and what we have today, apply gratitude, then let it work it’s magic.”
Is it possible that something as simple as gratitude can be so powerful?
I believe so.
After I stopped asking why I couldn’t couldn’t find the right partner,
After I started to thank God for blessings of the moment,
and the mystery blessings on the way,
My soulmate came to me
when the time was right.
Blessings live in this moment.
Blessings are on the way.
