A Simple Process for BIG Appreciation and Gratitude

We’re approaching Thanksgiving, and I’m going into appreciation mode in a big way. My kids call this my sappy time of year because I’m in such deep gratitude for everything from sunrises and sunsets to family and my work. I get misty-eyed from feeling overwhelmed with all the goodness in my life. 


A big part of what I’m thankful for is you. Thank you for listening. Thank you for all the messages you send me. It is a joy to share with you what I’ve learned about creating a life you can love. And while today’s episode may seem cliche since it’s airing right around Thanksgiving, the message here is pure gold for helping you get what you want in life. 


For years my mom has had the practice of, as soon as she opened her eyes in the morning, she would give thanks — for breath, her pillow, blanket, for her healthy body… I’ve adopted the same practice, though it hasn’t always been my practice.


I know what it’s like to wake up feeling anxious, scared, and totally stressed out. I did that for many years. Giving thanks hasn’t always been easy for me, but practicing gratitude is just that —  a practice. And it’s worth it because it’s so powerful that this seemingly small practice can change your life.


Cultivating a gratitude practice is one of the most powerful things you can do to shift your perspective and your life in a positive direction.  


Today’s episode is an invitation to do one simple process from now through the end of the year. Make a list of everything you’re grateful for. No need to list why you’re grateful. Just list the good stuff, one thing after the other. Empty out in one big session of thankfulness.


Then each day from now to the end of the year, add one thing to the list. 


What you can expect is that as you focus on the good things in your life, you’ll start to notice more good things in your life experience. It’s just the way the mind works. 


Enjoy it. Bask in it. Play with the process. Have fun with it. Feel all the good feels and give thanks for the shifts and wins along the way.

Thanks for listening!
