“Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate or value into your life.” ~ Christiane Northrup
Welcome to Attitude of Gratitude Week, a special Thanksgiving-themed week at In Pursuit of Fulfillment.
As Thanksgiving week kicks off, many people are focusing on gratitude–feeling grateful for the things, people and situations in their lives. On Facebook, many people are posting their gratitude in the form of a status every day this month. There’s even a #gratitude hashtag floating around Twitter.
I think that’s awesome and I would love to see the gratitude trend continue even after the holiday season gives way to a new year. After all, developing a regular practice of being grateful for the good people, situations and things in your life is the best way to attract more of the same.
As Oprah Winfrey said, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
That’s why this week, In Pursuit of Fulfillment will be all about the art of gratitude. Starting today, you’ll find fresh posts on gratitude each day this week–how to develop an attitude of gratitude, finding ways to show your gratitude, how developing a practice of being grateful can help bring more good things into your life–and more.
As for me, I’ve been slacking in the gratitude area a little bit–and boy, have I noticed the difference. So I’ll be recommitting to my daily gratitude journal, and focusing on the things, people and situations that make my life so wonderful.
Today, I’m grateful for my beautiful, healthy children, my wonderful husband and our comfortable, safe home. I’m grateful for my career and for the fact that I get to do what I love for a living. I’m grateful for my health and my family’s financial security. I’m grateful for my friends and my loving extended family.
What are you grateful for today? Tell me in the comments!
