Living In Gratitude: A New Year, A New Appreciation

Be in love with your life, every minute of it. ~Jack Keroac

Every moment of life is an adventure and January 1st holds the promise of a fresh start. Many of us choose this day to start ‘over’, to make changes in our lives.

For those considering making a New Years resolution, nurturing one’s gratitude can provide profound and life-altering changes.

Feeling and expressing appreciation spills over into all areas of life.

It enhances our relationships, creating stronger bonds among family, friends and coworkers.

Gratitude nourishes our bodies, boosting our immunity and our overall health.

Being grateful allows us to ounce back during times of adversity as we can find the blessings in even our darkest moments.

Be in love with life

Our creativity, productivity and self-esteem are all positively affected by genuine gratitude.

As the unknown of each day unfolds, it offers unusual, exciting, and sometimes challenging experiences. Some days are amazing and invigorating while others can leave us overwhelmed, irritated or sad.

When we take a moment to reflect on the abundance and blessings life provides, including those difficult moments that are guaranteed to each of us, we will find so many reasons to be grateful.

In every day, whatever it brings, there is something for which to be thankful.

Those reasons may not be clear at the time, but by keeping an open heart and mind, they will become apparent and you will truly be in love with your life.

May 2017 and all your days there after be filled with gratitude and good things.
