Thank you: Two very powerful words that are so important in our lives.
As we go into Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, one of my favorite holidays of the year, I wanted to start by expressing my gratitude to you. I have had the honor and the privilege of creating these videos and this content now for over six years, and it really takes a community to produce them, to put them together, to get them out in the world.
And it also takes an audience. It takes you listening to this information, and I hope implementing it. My goal and my intention is that you’re using these tools that I’m offering to you on a weekly basis and applying them into your life, so you can really live your best life.
I want to thank you for watching these videos, for supporting my work in the world, it truly is a dream come true for me.
Gratitude. Most of us have heard about having a gratitude practice, and if you have a gratitude practice i’m going to invite you to dial that up and turn the energy up and that in your life. If you haven’t yet put this into practice in your life, enter into a 30-day experiment with it.
Gratitude is a similar frequency of abundance, of expansion, and when we’re looking for the things in our life that we’re grateful for, and we’re seeing the good in our life, we tend to attract more good. We feel better, we do better and we become better.
So a great practice on a daily basis is to write down three to five things that you’re grateful for. It’s a different energy when you think about what you’re grateful for versus when you write it down.
Just by starting your day in that gratitude practice, you’re setting your mind intentionally and setting yourself up for success at the end of the day.
If you already have a gratitude practice and want to dial it up, think about “Why am I grateful for this?” It’s one thing to say I’m grateful for my kids, or i’m grateful for my spouse, or i’m grateful for my pet, or my job, or my vehicle, but when you think about why am I grateful for that?
Maybe you are thinking of a specific moment that happened in your day, and how it made you feel. To just say the words “I’m grateful for,” there’s one benefit to that, but when you really feel that gratitude, that’s really where the true power exists in your gratitude practice.
So what are you grateful for? And how could you extend that gratitude to somebody? Maybe it’s writing a hand written thank you card or letter to somebody. Send a quick text, leave a message and notice how you feel when you say thank you to somebody else. Not only does it lift them up but it also lifts you.
The reason Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays is because as a country, there’s this collective energy of giving thanks, a powerful emotion and powerful vibration. As a big community, we’re intentionally giving thanks for our food, for the harvest, for our family, for all the the bounty in our lives. If we could just do that every day, not just saving it for special occasions, I believe that that could transform not only our lives, but really really the globe if we were living more in gratitude.
As you’re with your family, your friends celebrating this weekend, I just really encourage you to lean into that true giving thanks, and what that means for you and all of the blessings in your life.
So again, thank you for being part of my community, for your support in the work that I get to do in in the world.
Here is to you living a life you love,
