“Gratitude is the best attitude” has become a cliché. Thrown around on social media, relentlessly quoted to build a brand, it sticks in our collective consciousness.

Because it’s true.

Like mindfulness, and meditation, it’s easy these days to research the positive affects of gratitude on your nervous system, your brain and your health. You can type it into your search bar 🙂

However, sometimes it can be hard to practice gratitude. Especially when reality hits us in the face with events beyond our control. Natural disasters, like the recent fires in California, remind us that life’s filled with unexpected twists and turns.

Gratitude is about focusing on what you have, instead of what you’re missing. Seeing new opportunities, instead of old regrets. Moving beyond loss.

Mostly gratitude is about how you see your self. At your very core.

Are you identified with the emptiness of your ego, or the fullness of your being?

Awareness is a luminous field of endless light. To know you’re light at your very core, that’s the purpose of meditation. It shifts who you take your self to be.

And that changes everything 🙂

For the rest of December here’s my gift for you, my free guided meditation training on gratitude.
