When You Look Back with Gratitude You Give Yourself a Boost

October look back
Look back with gratitude…

Finding time to look back with gratitude is a powerful time tool that will reliably turn your day around and recharge your energy in an instant.

That may seem puzzling at first. But let’s take a closer look. What is it about pausing to reflect, or look back, and about thankfulness that is so powerful?

It’s a perfect time to think about this — as we say goodbye to September and move more deeply into autumn.  You see, taking the time to appreciate your past has a huge impact on your future. It boosts your energy, shifts your perspective, and enhances the likelihood of your success.

Look back before looking ahead…

So, what actually happens, when you give yourself the gifts of reflection and the attitude of gratitude?

Well, here’s what I have found, in my experience:

  • When I make time to look back and reflect I give myself space to:
    • Pause,
    • Take a breath,
    • Look around, and
    • Reconnect with my heart.
  • Once I’ve connected with my heart I look with appreciation at what I see.
    • It’s like an electrical circuit has been completed.
    • The attitude of gratitude is a surefire way to open my heart wide.
    • The transformative power of this cannot be overstated.

An open heart is expansive, strong, and operating at its optimum capacity.  The heart that has softened and opened with gratitude is bursting with fullness and, at the same time is incredibly light, energetic, and agile.

It’s a heart that’s filled to the brim with ideas, creative new connections, optimism, and clarity.

Reflect and open your heart…

And this is a gift that you can give yourself anytime — in any moment.

When your heart is open and grateful, you approach the day with the kind of “can-do” energy that sails you from task to task with focus, efficiency, and maximum effectiveness.

Isn’t that a great way to end the month of September and launch yourself into golden October? 

So, how will you give yourself time today to pause and reflect with gratitude as you move into a new month?
