Be Thankful


Good Morning!  Wow- I never say that because I’m writing you at all hours of the day and mostly night.

I just wanted to write a quick post before you dash off to be with your loved ones.  I hope you all have an amazing and safe Thanksgiving!!!


Every day is a blessing, and in each moment there are many things that we can be grateful for.  The world opens up to us when we live in a space of gratitude.  In essence, gratitude has a snowball effect.  When we are appreciative and express it, the universe glows a bit more brightly and showers us with even more blessings. 

There is always something to be grateful for, even when life seems hard.  When times are tough, whether we are having a bad day or are stuck in what feels like an endless rut, it may be difficult to take the time to feel grateful.  Yet that is when gratitude can be most important.  If can look at our lives during periods of challenge and discover something to be thankful for, then we can transform our realities in an instant.  There are blessings to be found everywhere , but when we are focusing on what is negative, our abundance can be easy to miss.  Instead choosing to find  things we can appreciate that already exist in our lives changes what we see in our world.  We start to notice one blessing and then another.

When we constantly choose to be grateful, we see that every breath is a miracle, and each smile becomes a gift.  We begin to understand that difficulties are also invaluable lessons.  The sun is always shining for us when we are full of thanks, even if it’s hidden behind clouds on a raining day.

Living in a state of appreciation allows us to spread our abundance, because that is the energy we emanate from our beings.  Since the world reflects back to us what we embody, the additional bounty that inevitably flows our way gives us even more to be grateful for.  The universe wants to shower us with blessings.  The more we appreciate life, the more life appreciates us and bestows us with greater goodness. ~Madisyn Taylor

Happy Thanksgiving!
