“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” Anon
I thought this could be appropriate for this time of year when I saw the word present. However it really isn’t anything about presents as such at all is it. At this time of the year though we all get a bit frazzled with the word Xmas for some reason and it can be easy to forget to be grateful for the people who have done something for us from their frazzled state. Being grateful however is not just for those people, but also for our world in general, the universe or whatever it is you believe is responsible for making life ok.
I had learnt this a while back and I got into the habit of saying thank you to the universe when something happened that could potentially have been a disaster but I was still safe. Or sometimes I remember to say thank you for getting me home in one piece or my family all turn up in one piece. It was then pointed out to me that as a co-creator of my universe maybe I should also be thinking of turning those thanks inwards, maybe I’ve listened to my intuition and kept myself safe that way. Whatever or whoever is responsible for your health and good food, your home, your family, remember that giving thanks will improve the physiology of both the giver and receiver. If you remember to express true thanks to those giving you gifts or going the extra mile for you this Xmas, you will be taking steps to improve your own health!
Enjoy improving your health!
