PRACTICING GRATITUDE

I’m writing this on what feels like the 84th of January!!! As 2020 ended and we moved into 2021 there was so much hope & also relief the horrendous year of 2020 was over. Yes of course deep down we knew that all the problems weren’t going to magically disappear as the clock struck midnight, but we were allowed a bit of hope, weren’t we?

In West Yorkshire we were going into the New Year in Tier 3 which, although not great, it did mean I could still go to work which made life much easier. It soon became apparent though that the few days of fun over Christmas had caused the inevitable COVID-19 spike & the figures were frighteningly high, so a National Lockdown was announced on the 4th January. A huge part of me was relieved as people’s health comes before anything and we really have to get this horrific virus under control but, January is a bleak month anyway and myself, like most other people felt quite low, tearful, under the weather and in short life felt very bleak to say the least. January is a tough month anyway, but this was on another level. The weather was dark, miserable, raining constantly and, in short, all I wanted to really do was hide under my duvet.

I had a few low days & moving my business online once again didn’t help plus I wasn’t feeling 100% but then something made me snap out of it! I’d been so positive through the other 2 lockdowns & I’m definitely a glass half full person so I needed to get my mojo back.

I’d noticed someone I follow on Facebook had recommended The Law of Attraction. It was something I’d briefly looked at before but not given it too much though but this time it sparked something in me.

The Law of Attraction is all about Gratitude & this past year has brought this to the fore in huge amounts. I am so blessed that my family haven’t been affected by COVID-19, I’ve got a beautiful & supportive family around me, I’m surrounded by love, my business, although it’s been hard, is still going strong & the support has been astonishing. I’ve worked hard for it though, I’ve certainly not just sat back & hoped for the best, but it’s definitely paid off & there are so many people far far worse off than I am even though it’s a tough situation for everyone.

I first listened to ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne on audiobooks and then I found a Podcast which I love called The Law of Attraction changed my life’ by Francesca Amber. She puts it into ‘real life’ and makes it fun to listen to & I look forward to tuning in. I like it for the positivity & showing gratitude daily for what we have. It’s certainly lifted my mood and I feel so much more positive about everything. On one episode she recommended doing ‘The Magic’, another book by Rhonda Byrne. It’s 28 daily practices & a chapter must be read each consecutive day with the practices followed. If you miss one day it suggests you go back 3. It involves life changing thought patterns & actions centered upon gratitude & so far I’m loving it and feeling the difference already. Once I’ve read the whole book, I’m will be writing a review of my experiences & findings from it . I’m currently only on Day 6 so I have a long way to go but already my mindset & the way I’m thinking is changing so I can’t wait to continue.

“WHOEVER HAS GRATITUDE WILL BE GIVEN MORE & THEY WILL HAVE AN ABUNDANCE. WHOEVER DOES NOT HAVE GRATITUDE, EVEN WHAT HE OR SHE HAS WILL BE TAKEN FROM HIM OR HER.” – THE MAGIC
