The New Moon is on November 18th and, in this lunation, it’s all about new self-awareness. This major aspect will help you make positive changes in your life, planting new seeds and starting afresh.

Gratitude is not a passive response to something given to us. Gratitude is being awake in the presence of everything that lives within and without us. Gratitude is not something that is shown after the event. It is the deep, a-priori state of attention that shows we understand and are equal to the gifted nature of life.” ~David Whyte

The practice of gratitude as a tool for happiness has been in the mainstream for years. Long-term studies support gratitude’s effectiveness, suggesting that a positive, appreciative attitude contributes to greater success in work, greater health, peak performance in sports and business, a higher sense of well-being, and a faster rate of recovery.

That’s why practicing gratitude makes so much sense. When we practice giving thanks for all we have, instead of complaining about what we lack, we give ourselves the chance to see all of life as an opportunity and a blessing.

Remember that gratitude isn’t a blindly optimistic approach in which the bad things in life are whitewashed or ignored. It’s more a matter of where we put our focus and attention. Pain and injustice exist in this world, but when we focus on the gifts of life, we gain a feeling of well-being. Gratitude balances us and gives us hope.

As you practice, an inner shift begins to occur, and you may be delighted to discover how content and hopeful you are feeling. That sense of fulfillment is gratitude at work.

Reasons to be thankful journal
~Evolve from Within~ Journal It
You will need two journals. Make it a ritual every night before bed, write about what you were grateful for that day ~ it’s often the small things that matter most!

  • In the first journal, write everything you are grateful for about yourself. Write about how you are grateful for arms that can hug a soul that can love, a smile that is contagious, your feet that dance gracefully, or anything else that makes you who you are.
  • In the second journal, write about all the things you are grateful for in your life. List the things that make you happy, like soft grass, the moving clouds, teens’ talk and laughter, or a husband that turns the coffee pot on so it’s fresh and warm for you when you get up in the morning!

There are many things to be grateful for: colorful autumn leaves, legs that work, friends who listen and really hear, chocolate, fresh eggs, warm jackets, tomatoes, the ability to read, roses, our health, butterflies. What’s on your list?

As you practice, an inner shift begins to occur, and you may be delighted to discover how content and hopeful you are feeling. That sense of fulfillment is gratitude at work.
