For the next few days I want you to pay attention to the conversation you over hear as you stand in line at the grocery store, post office or any other venue. How much of the conversation was about what’s wrong instead of what’s right? If your experience was anything like mine, most of the conversation centered on what was wrong. From the economy to the weather, the slow moving line, politics etc. This is tragic because there is no end to the things we can be thankful for not only in our personal life but also in our local, national and global community.
Just as negativity breeds negativity, being grateful brings more things into your life to be grateful for AND collectively if we, citizens of the world, focus on having grateful minds, we could have a profound effect on what so many of us dream about, living in a world filled with peace and harmony.
Now, ponder for a moment, what about your conversation?
Is most of your conversation about what’s wrong or what’s right? Maybe, this is a good time to become aware of all the things in YOUR life you should be thankful for and share them at the Gratitude Project.
The Gratitude Project begins November 9, 2011 and ends with a free daylong virtual community event, November 18, 2011 from 9am – 4pm EST. Throughout the day, you’ll be able to dial in to the Gratitude Project for the first 10 minutes of each hour to share and experience powerful gratitude exercises and rituals.
