Choose Gratitude Not Attitude

In a time of economic distress that has left many struggling financially, countless people have made unhealthy decisions to compensate  for loss and pain. This pictorial and spiritual reminder is an invitation to walk toward personal goals with honesty and intent, while learning to focus on gratitude and being mindful of the words we choose, even when opening another credit card statement or a foreclosure notice. 

This simple and easy-to-read book is an example of the 'Laws of Attraction' with a visual reminder that what is projected, is reflected.  The more gratitude one becomes aware of, the more there is to be grateful about.  As each day unfolds, individuals become more and more cognizant of the positive aspects in their day, their surroundings and who they choose to associate with. 

When we take the time to write all that we are grateful for into a daily journal, our attention shifts from the negative complaints, to the discovery of blessings and abundance.  The sadness of who we used to be and what we used to have diminishes as the awareness of gifts and opportunities bring hope and ultimately happiness.

Even when sh*t hits the fan, there is still a lot to be grateful for. It might be family, friends, love or health. Breathing is always a great start, as well as having a voice and physical abilities. These are life's simple joys and pleasures. With a perspective of gratitude, we can begin to change our attitude which will ultimately change our lives.   The result of this transformation of thought is a more appreciative, happy, energetic and joyful being.  It's that easy!


Excerpt

One of my passions is walking. As a Motivational Coach my intention is to inspire and motivate others through movement. Stepping into your brilliance often requires a little nudge and accountability. This is what I offer through this journal. An opportunity to discover what you are grateful for and allow yourself to get past the blame and negativity. To navigate your way toward self-love, appreciation, contentment and bliss.

Walking in the NOW is a philosophy focused on living in this moment. You are not your past. Together we will work on releasing the worry and fear of tomorrow.

In an economic time that has left many struggling financially, most of us have chosen unhealthy sources to compensate for our losses. I invite you to come with me as like-minded souls and walk toward our goals with honesty and intent, while learning to focus on our gratitude and be mindful of the words we use.

When you change your attitude you will change your life. Learn how to be appreciative, happy, energetic and joyful.

There are five rules to creating happiness:

• Free your heart from hatred.
• Free your mind from worries.
• Live simply.
• Give more.
• Expect less.

DAY 1: THE GRATITUDE LIST

My journey of gratitude started after I lost my job in the mortgage industry. The company that I spent five years with closed their doors and my six-figure income disappeared. Soon, I had mounting credit card debt and had used all of my savings and retirement to pay the bills. I looked for work, sent out resumes and participated in countless interviews without ever getting a job. I became depressed, angry, scared and lifeless.

I knew I had to do something to stop the pity party. I started walking every day. During these field trips into nature I would leave my troubles behind and concentrate on the brilliance that surrounded me. I practiced living, breathing and walking in the “NOW.” I began writing all that I was grateful for into a journal. In discovering all of my blessings the focus shifted. The sadness of who I used to be, and what I used to have, dimmed as the awareness of my gifts brought me hope. I began to realize I had a lot to be grateful for. I had family, friends, love and health. I was breathing, I could talk and I could walk. These are life’s simple joys and pleasures. With gratitude I started changing my attitude and changing my life. I became appreciative, happy, energetic and joyful. Even when opening another credit card statement!

WHAT I AM GRATEFUL FOR TODAY

I am grateful for my camera. I take it on my walks and capture close-ups of the most amazing things: bugs, weeds, a leaf, tiny little wildflowers and action shots of my dogs as they teach me to live in the moment.

I am grateful for the gentle slopes that surround my home. I walk on dirt trails, happy in my solitude and sing out loud to my favorite songs.

I am grateful for the water I carry while walking. I look at the pond muck that the dogs wade in and feel so fortunate to quench my thirst without parasites.

I am grateful for shoes that protect me. I often pick stickers out of doggie paws.

I am grateful for where I live. Country living is right outside my door.

I am grateful for curiosity. It usually leads me off the trail as I tread my own path to a new discovery.

I am grateful for being creative. I was coloring with an eight year old and forgot how fun it was. Especially when using a purple crayon for a red apple.

I am grateful for the days I allow myself to escape into a good book. I recently eliminated reading books with weapons, criminal activities, violence and cruelty. Now I enjoy happy stories with feel-good antics and comedic banter.

I am grateful for the variety of channels our satellite provides. I stopped watching brutality and anything with dead bodies on television. I want to laugh and dance with Ellen, travel the world, learn how to cook something new, how to makeover myself and my living room, and what it would be like to live in the wilderness with wolves.

I am grateful for my husband who appreciates my growth. His encouragement, love and support feed my ambitions and give me strength.

DISCOVER YOUR OWN GRATITUDE

We all beat ourselves up from the negativity in our lives. You might be doing it right now. Maybe it’s the mound of debt you have, a bad relationship or the inability to find a job. What if you wrote right now, this minute, ten reasons why you are grateful? It can be as simple as your ability to utilize one of your five senses. I always start with breathing since the option would be well, not breathing... We all have reasons to be grateful, sometimes we just have to remind ourselves.
