'Each morning before you do anything else, hold gratitude.' Gratitude is the path to happiness, inner peace and joy.  In gratitude we feel blessed, we are reminded of the many blessings of life that are ours to witness, to enjoy, - to live as. This is one of my favourite meditations, in part because it is such a wonderful experience to begin each day. Music Credit: Eternell, "landing in being" Namaste  xo - dorothy

Morning meditation gratitude
Taking pleasure in the small blessings in life. Acknowledging your gratitude for these small pleasures are also important in our journey called life.

Gratitude is the basis of a happy life of peace. I start my day, every day, with a simple declaration of gratitude. Some are big and some rather small, but each just as important as the last. I made myself a gratitude jar to keep each item of gratitude. Simple, yet ritualistic, and it reminds me every day how much I really do have to be grateful for.

Great to take a moment to do at anytime, but I just did this morning laying down with my house rabbit and what a beautiful way to start the day. Feel lighter & happier now just by taking a few moments to be grateful.

Gratitude is the secret to happiness
There are so many things to be grateful for, that are usually taken for granted. Focus on these things and your mind will instantly be in a brighter, calmer, happier state.

Start each day with gratitude to shift your energy and mindset into something positive. When we can be grateful for what we have around us, we can be happier.

I feel so blessed!
This was a daily reminder that I’m blessed to have such amazing people in my life! My friends, family, coworkers, Steven as my partner, my parents who love me, and I’m on a path of working to serve others even more. I’m so grateful.

I am SO Blessed
That I wanted to share this with you. Okay, I wasn’t EXACTLY Happy at the beginning of this; my roommate DID dump my coffee as it was brewing, but you know what? I am so grateful to be living with him, I really can’t be mad at him.... but I’m also just happy with my calcium, also to be weaving. Have a Groovy day, everyone! ☕️🐝☕️

A morning meditation...
I feel grateful that my grandfather and my father are still alive. I’m grateful even for my father’s anger because it forces me to articulate myself in ways that, while uncomfortable, helps me unearth feelings and experiences that autism causes to sink inside before I can deal with them. I’m aware that I’m hurting my other family, but I’m also aware that they put me in between a rock and a hard place when it comes to the psychiatric issues at hand. She doesn’t want to regulate her behavior or she’d’ve done that already. But I’m grateful that I’m able to realize all of this, as painful as it is. I look forward to playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in forty-nine minutes.

Before anything else in the morning have gratitude- write down all the gratitudes you have so you can anchor them. Gain appreciation for everything around you

I am grateful to begin a path to wellness both mental and physical. I am grateful for the ability to actively guide my life with God’s help, family, and friends as opposed to being tossed to and grow controlled by the winds of confusion and torment. I am grateful for faith, the substance of things not yet evident or seen. I am grateful that my enemies are silenced and for the ability to forgive and pray for those whose despitefully use me and mean harm to me or my family and friends. I am grateful for the ability to rise over the negative and fearful thoughts and f this present day I am grateful for the ability to love and forgive

Thank you for a new perspective
We can be grateful for anything. Moments, objects, people. Being grateful means remembering something from the past and being thankful for it, or envisioning a future that will make us smile, right now, here in the present moment.

I learned that I have a lot to be thankful for. Some may not see it as much but my accomplishments are everything to me.

I am the White Queen
AND the Jade Dragon. I know Patience, but it is not Infinite. I know who I am and what I hope to do. I am grateful for bending rather than breaking, when the latter seems the most reasonable option. I am Cassandra, and Carmen, and collateral damage.

When I acknowledge a gratitude the corners of my mouth turn upward. I feel full of appreciation and contentment. I can grab a hold of these positive feelings anytime throughout the day by returning to my morning gratitude or finding a new one.

Gratitude is my tether
to the real world. The greatest musician I have ever heard fell in love with me. We will be married soon! Dorothy also taught me to trust myself, so I did. Now. I do! 😊💍 He and I will make beautiful music together. He calls me Jade Moon, my new nom de plume.
