Affirmation: Being grateful for where I am forges the path to where I want to be.
I make a conscious effort to give thanks for all good things in my life.
The more I show my gratitude, the more good things I receive to be thankful for!
When I awake in the mornings, I give thanks for the new day. The good feelings I generate start my day in a perfect way. And I find that one good thing leads to another. This positive boost helps me move through my daily tasks with energy and momentum.
I thank my significant other for the things they do for me. This makes them feel loved and appreciated and they go out of their way to do even more good things for me.
It is a never-ending cycle of love!
I find things to thank my children for every day. When they do a good job on anything, I thank them for their effort, motivating them to continue. My happiness is even greater when I see them, too, discovering the joys of gratitude and telling others, “Thank you.”
As my day goes on, I thank my co-workers for their efforts and my clients for their business. In return, I receive their loyalty, respect and friendship.
I thank my friends for being there for me. They are always there to lend a helping hand and cheer me on.
I realize that even the challenges of my day arise for good reason and I am grateful for the lessons I learn from these obstacles. Invariably, my challenges bring me closer to my goals, in one way or another, as I seek new solutions.
Today, I strive to feel gratitude, enjoy it, and let it show in how I treat others.
