Choosing Gratitude Means You’re Choosing to Transform Your Time

Gratitude Freedom In Heart Quote

Gratitude frees and energizes you.

Gratitude isn’t a feeling you have; it’s a proactive choice that you make.

And gratitude is transformative. This is especially true when your life has you feeling cornered.

I’m guessing you know what I’m talking about here.  Do you ever feel:

Overwhelmed by the number of tasks on your to-do list?

Depleted because so many people either need or want or expect you to do something for them?

Frustrated that your own goals seem to always get postponed, or be perpetually just beyond your reach?

Gratitude transforms your moments

Well, the powerful fact is that renewing your energy and refreshing your perspective is never more than a few moments of gratitude away.  Indeed, exploring the attitude of gratitude is one of the most transformative time choices that you can make for yourself. It changes your experience of your moments profoundly. And it offers you wellsprings of energy that you wouldn’t even be able to imagine, prior to your shift in perspective.

We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorns have roses.  Alphonse Karr

Why is gratitude such a powerful mindset?  One of the qualities of gratitude that first springs to mind is how it empowers and opens us.

Our frustrations, stresses, and feelings of overwhelm are extremely constricting. They leave you feeling like you need to be holding your breath, can’t they?  And, of course, when you are holding your breath your energy is constricted and it’s hard to think clearly or creatively.

You’re just not getting enough oxygen.

The change is powerful…

Choosing the frame of gratitude is transformative because it immediately opens your hands and your heart. You release the energy of constriction and control while claiming the energy of open expansiveness.

This manifests in your body as well as in your mind.

  • You breathe in and out more easily.
  • Your eyes brighten, and the world takes on breadth, depth, and vibrant color again.
  • You feel energized and alive as you reconnect with your heart and your life.

Those are all very powerful results from introducing a simple change of attitude, don’t you think? So, how have you felt the effects of the attitude of gratitude in your life?
