Gratitude For the New Year

By Peter Shepherd

Did you know that the very best way to bring good things into your life is to be grateful for the good things that you already have? We each have a lot to be grateful for:

  1. If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more fortunate than the one million people who will not survive this week.
  2. If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of the world.
  3. If you can attend a church or political meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, then you are more blessed than three billion in the world.
  4. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in your pocket, then you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

Start every day by thinking of all the things for which you're thankful. Even things as simple as your bed, your pillow and your room. Then add friends and family members and the blessing of a fulfilling job and enough income to pay for the things you most need. Every day your list grows, along with a sense of well-being and gratitude. Also add the affirmation:

"Today I can give out and receive love wherever I go."
Smile at the world and it will smile back at you! When one is grateful it is an expression of self-acceptance. Needs and fears go out the window. This paves the way to an unconditional appreciation of others and a new paradigm for harmony in all relationships.

By now you may already have broken your New Year resolutions. You may want to consider this as a way to continue the year with something much more powerful than resolutions.
