Gratitude, The Master Key

Gratitude is the key that opens the door to abundance.  Look around you.  Are you sitting in a comfortable chair?  Do you  have a roof over your head?  Is there food in your cupboard?  Is your living space warm in winter and cool in summer?  Do you use a scrub board to clean your clothes?  Are you able to listen to your favorite music or watch whatever you like on television?  When was the last time you expressed appreciation for any of these things, or are you in the habit of taking them for granted?

It is amazing how much joy comes to you when you begin a habit of gratitude.  Expressing thanks to those around you for their contribution to your welfare is such an easy thing to do, but is like a ray of sunshine to those who receive your appreciaion.  When someone cooks a meal for you, or washes your clothes, or works long hours to  make sure you have food and shelter, take the time to give them a sincere thank you.  When someone does even the slightest guesture of kindness, do not let the moment pass without showing appreciation.  We all love appreciative people.

My suggestion is get some thank you notes. When someone shows you  a kindness, send them a note.  I know how great I feel when someone takes time to send one to me.  It brightens my day.  One of the benefits of being grateful is others enjoy helping you.  We all want to be validated, to feel we are worthy.  And we are drawn to those people who appreciate us.

Never let a day pass without taking time before going to sleep to review the day.  Look for God’s hand in your day.  Acknowledge your blessings and those who have shown you kindness.  An attitude of gratitude opens the door to abundance.
