Why is Gratitude so Difficult to Maintain?

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving break (for those who celebrate this holiday). I love this time of the year, when we are more purposefully called upon to be grateful for all the wonderful things we have. Moreover, we are called to spend time with our loved ones and our family. It is simply a very rewarding time for many people; it certainly is for me, as I was blessed to be able to spend time with people I love. Even though I was not able to spend it with my parents, as they live abroad, I was blessed enough to have around me wonderful, loving and supporting people, and that is what it’s all about. (here is a pic of me with the turkey I cooked , so proud hahaha)

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge that while gratitude is a wonderful feeling and state of being, it is sometimes difficult to maintain. Why? Simply because we have been trained for years and years to look for what is wrong (so we can outsmart someone else), to look for what is missing (so we can prevent a problem and control a situation), to look for signs of “danger” (so we can stay safe), to predict what could go wrong (so we are not “fooled” by someone else) and more..

 

But Gratitude is really about Trust, the Trust that we are exactly where we need to be, experiencing exactly what we need to experience. TRUST that everything is as perfect as we are, and from that place of perfection and peace, work towards achieving the next step in our evolution.iS TRUST 6995901 300x199 Why is Gratitude so Difficult to Maintain? %Category

Being grateful is giving ourselves the blessing of trust and the gift of looking for the opportunities, instead of worrying about the lack of perfection in our circumstances.

To accomplish that, we need to keep our focus on the positive and do what for most humans is most difficult in this life– TRUST. Trust yourself, trust the universe, trust your spirit, and know that everything is perfect just the way it is.

May we all be able to TRUST and be GRATEFUL for our lives, and from there work towards improving and growing every single day.

To your Infinite
Happiness, Health, Wisdom and Wealth
