Cultivate gratitude

It’s a bit of wisdom sages and spiritual teachers have handed down for millenia, and it’s as true now as it ever was –

A mind of gratitude is essential to becoming an evolved, thoughtful and spiritually awakened human being.

Sometimes, I struggle with carrying out this timeless advice, but I’m developing the habit of silently expressing thanks for another day and the opportunity to improve.

Here’s a little tip I found helpful – write an affirmation on a slip of paper that you can glance at several times a day to remind yourself to be grateful for being alive.

Try this phrase or make one up yourself –

Thank you for this day and for the opportunity to help others.
