Powerful thankfulness

June 22, 2017

Cultivate thankfulness. Tend and nurture it. It is beyond powerful. When we give thanks we look at what we have and not what we don't have - we look at supply, not lack. We get to remain present and in our “space”and open it to the fullness of this present moment, now.


When we give thanks we separate the dark from the light. We look and we see that the light (our gift) is good.


It is good.


Thankfulness stimulates feel-good chemicals in our brain, creating a sense of well-being. Well-being opens us up to a sensation of belonging, and permanence of place and space. Thankfulness presences you. Cultivate a lifestyle of thankfulness. Be thankful in the small things. Stop and smell the roses. You have all the time in the world to choose to enjoy the world you're in. Be thankful ALWAYS: thanksgiving is a choice that we’re all capable of choosing.


Research shows that thankfulness can keep you happier and healthier with anxiety and depression levels lessening. Thanksgiving activates the hypothalamus, which is the part of our brain responsible for regulating different bodily functions, such as sleep and hunger. Those who practice thankfulness, experience a better quality of sleep and more overall positive emotions.
