I AM: GRATEFUL
You are one week into your powerful morning routine. You may be challenged by this or you may have already discovered how alive this makes you feel.
...But maybe things aren't changing how you would like for them to... YET! Perhaps you still feel unease or tension. How do you handle all of the lessons and self confrontations and all of the LIFE that hits you while we are on this journey?
Gratitude. As simple as it may sound - gratitude is life changing and we are going to help you personally discover that truth.

Lesson of the Week
Say Thank YOU. Say thank you every day. Thank you eyes for opening. Thank you alarm clock for waking me up to my life. Thank you morning routine that is changing my life. Thank you screaming baby or loud children for being boisterous and alive! Thank you for the opportunity to make breakfast because we can afford to eat. Thank you opportunity to go to work because I have means to earn income. The list goes on and on.
Because this is what it comes down to. All of the opportunities in the world... all of the money or fame or relationship in the world - are not going to make you happy unless you CHOOSE happiness. The fact is that it WILL NOT BE A PERFECT journey. You will face difficult relationships, illness, death.... you will have people who try to drag you down... you will have temptations...
And what's even more - in order to grow you will:
Purposely and decidedly put yourself into situations that make you uncomfortable
Strongly and lovingly face confrontations
Take complete responsibility for YOUR life - no blaming or pointing fingers - YOU DID THIS
So how can we go through ALL of these things and not just be happy.... but be exuberant? Again - the answer is gratitude. For gratitude scientifically results in happiness in the mind and body.
And when we can find gratitude in the NOW. Gratitude in the good times and challenging times. We will start to create a truly and deeply joyful being. This is when you will start to identify all of the opportunities around you and how they are there for YOU to grab hold of. You are worthy. Your gift is meant to be shared...
Gratitude is life changing.
