When everything is wonderful; we are happy and our lives are going along just as we want it to, it is easy to be grateful.
When things are not going well; we are not pleased with what is happening, or we are simply unhappy, where is our gratitude then?
November is in the rearview mirror and most of the daily gratitude posts on Facebook, Twitter and other social media have all but disappeared. Are we really only aware of the power of gratitude for the 30 or 40 day gratitude post challenges each year?
Let us commit this day and every day to be grateful. When life is challenging; when the voice of the ego mind is running you ragged, pause. Slow down and listen to the loving voice of your heart. It is always there, waiting for a moment to speak to lovingly guide you. This is the voice of your God, Creator, Universe or whatever the name you give to that power greater than yourself. He/she is omnipresent, open and unconditionally loving.
That is something to be grateful for.
Unconditional gratitude, unconditional love.
