Your life is falling apart, and it seems like there’s no way out, but then, out of the mists of despair, a strange dark figure emerges and hands you the key to a door. Behind that door is the answer to all of your problems. The money you need is there. The promotion you’ve worked so hard for is there. The chance to build a fresh new life is there, but you take the key and throw it into the ocean. It sinks to the bottom and rests in the damp darkness, waiting for another soul to long for it. Then, it will emerge again and see if the next soul is courageous enough to use it.
Now, it’s your turn. The ancient key is in your hands. You flip it over, and one word is engraved on it. “Gratitude”
It may sound like a scene from a fantasy fiction movie, but in reality, Gratitude is the key that will open the door to a better life. No, it can’t guarantee you everything you desire, but it will open the door. It’s up to you if you choose to step through that doorway.
Surviving Christmas with Gratitude (Synova’s Attitude of Gratitude Series)
Transform your chaotic holiday season with this journal and 5 minutes a day!
Not everyone enjoys the holidays. After losing loved ones, it’s hard to continue with the festivities, but it’s vital to learn how to live again. After suffering through trauma, it’s hard to celebrate with a loud and rowdy crowd. Did you know a daily gratitude practice will change your life, both mind, and body?
Studies have proven that our brains literally cannot be fearful, anxious, or stressed and be grateful at the same time. Did you know that? The part of the brain that handles these emotions cannot do both simultaneously. It has to shut one off to open the other. Now you can be anxious and immediately grateful afterward, but you cannot be both at the same time!
What if you reprogrammed your brain to refocus on gratitude and shut off the anxiety during this season?
With a daily gratitude practice, you will do just that!
