How Gratitude helped me heal my life
It was august 2011, I was diagnosed with stage three peritoneal cancer. I was angry and I was scared. After the initial shock wore off and after two major abdominal surgeries and six chemotherapy sessions, I knew something had to change in my life.
That is when I learned that gratitude would help me shift my perception of the journey I was walking. I knew a gratitude practice was how the Divine was guiding me to heal.
As I began to count things to be grateful for, I began to feel better. I was healing mind, body and spirit. Life began to hold more meaning. I was happy. Life is a series of lessons to learn, grow, heal and expand your soul. I knew this cancer was a pivotal part of my earth’s lessons. I was grateful for more life. I began to say THANK YOU every morning. It is said if the only prayer you ever say is THANK YOU it is enough. The Divine loves when we are grateful and we get more to be grateful for.
Gratitude turns what we have into enough. It boosts emotional wellbeing and helps you by enhancing your body with feel good endorphins. Gratitude is the best attitude to have. Begin your practice simply with a new journal or a jar devoted just to being grateful to things that happen in your day. You know that saying? ‘every day may not be good, but there is good in every day!” I believe it.
Here are some ways to bring more positivity into your life:
- Smile often
- Add love when you cook
- Spend time with loved ones
- Pet your animal
- Bless your life, food, water
- Pray or meditate daily
Ask yourself these questions:
How has gratitude helped you to heal any area of your life?
Can you infuse gratitude into any area that may feel stuck or blocked in your life today?
I can help you with a gratitude practice. I can help guide you in initiating it and supporting your journey.
