40 Things I am Grateful for Today

It’s not only on Thanksgiving day that gratitude is important to me, but it is motivating me to finish this task that I have had on my to-do list for some time.  Gratitude is important every day.  Throughout the day, I find it helpful to not only think about what I am grateful for but to really get into the energy of gratitude, to feel what it’s like in my body, and enjoy the sensation of being in gratitude. 

When I really tap into the feeling of gratitude, the actual vibration of it in my body, here are the first things that pop up that I am grateful for.  

I am grateful for…

  1. My life as I feel so fortunate to be on Earth at this incredible point in time. 
  2. My body makes most of the rest of this list possible for me to experience. I could make a list of 40 things about my body that I am grateful for as well. 
  3. Emotions as they are the vibrations that I came to Earth to experience
  4. Connections and the feelings present in genuine connections like the ways our chakras reach out to each other and we may feel sexual energy, intellectual connection or heart coherence. It’s so awesome. 
  5. My eyesight because I get so much pleasure from seeing beautiful things! 
  6. Creativity and all the ways I can express myself through it
  7. Books and audiobooks, and the stories inside them.  I feel gratitude for all of those who take the time to create books and publish them and make them so available to me. 
  8. Libraries as they are an incredible way to access books in just seconds! My online library really makes my life richer and more enjoyable. 
  9. The ability to learn and expand my knowledge 
  10. The ability to perceive multiple realities and to consider other the perspectives of other people with different experiences. I am not sure if any animal besides humans have this capacity. 
  11. The ability to dream both literally when I am sleeping but also to dream of things that I want or desire for myself or humanity for example
