|You are the ultimate winner!|
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." John F. Kennedy
Choose to make gratitude and appreciation your lifestyle rather than just culturally approved gestures. Your life will change, which will affect the world around you.
Can you thank everything?
Make it a quest, a focus, a project. Gratitude is the true secret to abundance in all its forms. Plus, it tends to bring to the surface all the stuff you don't like about yourself. You can then thank all of it for its service to your life, and you can let it go.
Even the negative experiences have served you.
You've nothing to lose in being grateful. Except, perhaps, your feelings of victimhood.
