I know that deep, profound gratitude has the power to transform human thoughts and emotions.
Many years ago, when my life seemed to be upside down, I got two pieces of advice from different books which I read which transformed my world.
1. Be grateful for everything in your life. The good, the bad and the ugly. Learn to give thanks in your darkest hours.
2. Everything which you focus on EXPANDS!
As I started to find things to be grateful for, things magically shifted in my life - from ugly to good and then to great! My thoughts about gratitude expanded. More joy flowed in my life. Whatever I needed, appeared by magic! I seemed to be dancing with the universe all the time!
Here is a poem which I wrote at the end of that dark time in 2003. Back then I had a vision to capture words on photography and I accidentally met a photographer - Chad James, who also wanted to use some of my words against his photographs. We did one piece and another friend mounted it on canvas for me several years later. I have it hanging in my living room and thought I would share it with you.
What are you grateful for?
