Episode 38 – Gratitude Changes Everything
Living with an attitude of gratitude changes everything. It lifts us to a higher level and allows more Good to be revealed. In this episode we talk about who/what we can be radically grateful for and how being grateful in the midst of so much sadness and challenge in the world is a good thing. Gratitude fundamentally changes us.
“It has been said that life has treated me harshly; and sometimes I have complained in my heart because many pleasures of human experience have been withheld from me…if much has been denied me, much, very much, has been given me.” ― Helen Keller
“When a person doesn’t have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.” ― Elie Wiesel
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” ― G.K. Chesterton
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Share a situation when your life shifted after focusing on the Presence of Good.
When I feel Gratitude, it is my heart responding to life’s infinite blessings. No matter what situation or circumstance I find myself in, I can always find Good. I may not see it right away, but I trust it’s Presence and practice being grateful. Living in Gratitude changes me. My life is lighter, more joy-filled and peaceful. I remember how wonderfully blessed I am.
“I thank God every time I remember you.” Philippians 1:3
