Thanksgiving last week served as a great reminder of the importance of practicing gratitude and thankfulness. Every moment of every day we have a choice to express gratitude for all that is in our life or to focus on all that is not in our life. Implementing a practice of gratitude into your everyday life will shift your focus onto all that you are grateful for and will distance you from the negative thoughts and emotions experienced from focusing on all that we do not want or have in our life.
When going through a divorce or separation, make a conscious effort to shift from from low energy thoughts of anger, frustration, lack, disappointment, hate, and unfulfilled promises to the high energy thoughts focused on gratitude for all of the gifts received from the relationship or marriage – gratitude for the life lessons learned, for the personal growth you experienced, and for the beautiful gifts in the form of children or pets you received from the relationship.
Start noticing the physical cues your body gives you when you choose the high energy thought, emotion or feeling. When you implement an attitude of gratitude into your everyday life you will start to feel more free, lighter and all-around better. You and only you are in control of how you feel and making a low energy or high energy choice in every moment of every day. Make the shift to high energy thoughts and start changing your life!
