Thankful For You

Laurie J. Brenner

If there's one thing that I have learned in creating the life of my dreams it is this: be thankful. Being full of thanks for what you have in this moment will create opportunities in your life that will bring you more things for which to be thankful.

A thankful state of being is a welcoming state of being. You are open, you are receptive, and nothing stands in the way of you achieving the desires of your heart. Things begin to resonate in a way that you cannot even imagine. Synchronicities pop up around every corner you turn, things once thought lost become found, joy fills your heart and so you find yourself doing things you once dreamt about.

There are a lot of instructions on how to use the law of attraction in your life; how to put to use the simple steps outlined in The Secret, but the easiest and best thing you can do for yourself is to create a journal of things for which you are thankful.

Some call this the Gratitude Journal, but what you call it does not matter. What matters is that you make a date with your journal daily. Get in the habit of starting each day by writing down five things for which you are thankful.

By doing this you start each day in a great mood. What better way to improve your mood than to think about all the good things in your life? Thinking about these good things and then writing them down creates new neural pathways and receptors in your brain and thus integrates these thoughts into your being.

When happy, thankful thoughts are integrated into your being on a daily basis, pretty soon things start to change. You begin to take on a happy glow, the cells in your body are receiving zaps of positive electrical energy that make them expand and go AAAHHH! Think of those little yellow happy faces. That's what your cells begin to look like.

When your cells are happy, your countenance begins to change. Your body emits positive energy and radiates. You must know people like this - when you're around them you can feel the positive vibes.

Your health begins to change, you begin to change, and the things in your life begin to change. You become a lightening rod for the desires of your heart. Events, circumstances, and people come together to make your desires a reality.

It really is that simple. But it takes a commitment and a little work from you. What will it cost you? A few dollars and a few minutes. If you've got the extra cash, get a fancy journal and a great pen. There is nothing better than writing with a great pen.

When you write in your journal with your special pen, you'll feel special. This will help you get in the mood of thankfulness. As children the majority of us have been taught to say thank you when we received a gift or kindness from another. But how many of us thank the universe, our god, or our source for the things in our life on a daily basis?

Learning to give thanks will only add more blessings to your life. But saying it and writing it are two different things. A daily habit of writing down five things for which you are grateful will soon grow to a bigger list.

Can't think of anything for which you are thankful? How about the simple fact that you are breathing? As long as your lungs are expanding and contracting - you have options on this physical plane. If you're breathing - anything can change - if you take the time to invest in you.

A daily journal of thanks is about investing in you. It's about learning what makes you a special being - it's about learning that you are indeed a beloved child of the universe and every good thing that you desire can be yours. It's about learning how to be a child again and accept what goodness the universe has for you.

Right now - I'm thankful for you. One of the things I love most in this world is to write. Without you that would not be possible. So thank you for being here and reading this. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And may all your dreams find you!
