Living In Gratitude: At the End of the Day

At the end of the day, remember all the positive things that happened. Smile. Feel the comfort of your bed. Have sweet dreams.

In each of our lives, every day brings a variety of occurrences and emotions. Some are challenging, annoying and inconvenient while others are sweet, refreshing, empowering and enjoyable.

As you end each day, this is the perfect opportunity to reflect and wipe the slate clean. Embrace the things that made you smile, the ‘feel good’ things happened. Let go of those occurrences that evoke stress, irritation or dissatisfaction. 

While lying in bed, just before going to sleep, imagine you are holding a shiny pair of scissors. For each negative thing that happened during the day, there is a silver thread attaching it to you. Notice these threads, the thickness, the length, where it attaches to your body. Then, take the scissors and cut away those unwanted feelings. Watch as they fall away, releasing you from unwanted stress and emotions.

At the end of the day, remember postive things

Now, one by one, remember and visualize each of the wonderful, positive things that your day offered. Welcome and nurture the uplifting feelings these events bring. Smile as you are filled with appreciation and warmth. Focus on the comfort of your bed. Slow your breathing.  Open your heart and mind to tomorrow and all of its beauty and promise.

Close your eyes. Have sweet dreams.

May your day be filled with gratitude and good things.
