Thank You Is Enough!

As I reflect on another year of Thanksgiving, I am reminded of the boundless grace freely given to each and every one of us. Just as Eckhart Tolle once said, “if the only prayer you ever say is Thank You, that will be enough.” Thank you for being such an incredible group of supporters. I am always humbled by your love, support and kind words.

Since 2007, I have expressed my feelings of gratitude in one of my personal journals. Initially, I would write in this journal sporadically or as I often times said, when the spirit moved me to do so. This year, I have had an ever increasing shift in my perspective and beliefs in all that is and I now have made it a daily practice to write down at least 5 things I am grateful for. This simple exercise has transformed my thoughts from what I don’t have or want in my life to what I do have and want to create in my life. I suddenly experienced first hand how when we shift our thoughts and emotions from the frustrating and negative circumstances in our life to that of gratitude, it effortlessly opens the doorway to a fulfilling and abundant life.

In the spirit of thanksgiving, I wanted to share 5 of my favorite gratitude statements from my journal.

1. I am grateful for the strength that I have shown during times of adversity and difficulty for it teaches me how to overcome the next challenge that may present itself.
2. I am grateful for the power that I have within for I now know that it guides my actions and deeds.
3. I am grateful for forgiveness for it renews my spirit and opens my heart to unlimited love and compassion.
4. I am grateful for finally seeing my true value and worth as an independent woman for it reminds me that the best is yet to come.
5. I am grateful for adopting a daily practice of meditation for it allows me to go inward and connect with my all-knowing self and the Divine.

I hope my sharing is an inspiration to you as you open your heart and mind to the expression of gratitude this holiday season and hopefully also year round. Thank you is not only enough, YOU are enough. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!
