Gratitude and Beauty Practice

jinjgratitudeLike many of you, I’ve had a gratitude practice for years. I am aware that being grateful is a key to happiness. And that the more you are grateful the more you notice all the things to be grateful for. It’s an ever-expanding practice.

But lately I’ve noticed that when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror I sometimes have a frowny face. How can that be, if I’m practicing gratitude daily? Well, I think my gratitude practice has become a bit of a list-making exercise. I notice the good things and add them to my mental list of things to be grateful for.

So, the new project, then, is to make sure that I take the time to not only notice all the nice things that happen in my life but to also allow the gratitude for them to spread throughout my being, into a big inner smile and outer smile, and let the joy of it all suffuse my aura and actually change my energy. Thus I’m not just practicing gratitude, I’m becoming a grateful person, which means a happy person, which means a beautiful person, radiating joy and love.

Can I find something to be grateful for every moment? Can I feed myself a constant diet of joy as my gratitude practice evolves?

Can I even be grateful for the lows? Yes. I had a wonderful insight about this that I can’t wait to share with you soon!

In Joy!
