The Law of Attraction – Creating an Attitude of Gratitude

The Thanksgiving holiday is upon us, and November begins one of my favorite months of the year. Families and friends join together to give thanks for the food on our tables, for the people in our lives, and all of the things we feel blessed to have and share.

This is a month of Gratitude and Appreciation, and on the emotional scale, this is one of the highest vibrations that we can experience. So this month, I would like to offer a suggestion for something that you can do in order to keep yourself in the feeling of Gratitude, and that is by creating your very own Gratitude Journal.

Begin by choosing a small journal that you enjoy looking at, something that is pleasing to your eyes, something of beauty. Then, each day, write down at least five things that you are grateful for inside of that journal. I personally like to write a few things throughout the day so that I am constantly choosing to think about what I am grateful for on an ongoing basis.  See if you can come up with five new things every day for the entire month, no matter what they are.  Really stretch yourself past the obvious and find even the littlest things that you are grateful for. You will begin to see things with new and expanded eyes as you look for something else to be grateful for. It might be the smile from a stranger, or the way you see someone treat a child, it may be a hug that was shared, or a meal cooked. Maybe it’s as simple as someone folding your laundry, the way your dog greets you with sheer joy every day when you come home, or the warmth of a hot cup of tea. Things we may often take for granted, are all things to be grateful for. The more we bring our focus to that which we are grateful for, the more things will begin appearing to be grateful for.

If you do this every day for the entire month of November, you will have written down at least 150 things that you are Grateful for, and this process will raise your vibration every single day of the month as well as shift your point of perception.  You can keep the process going as long as you like, and by keeping the journal near, you have something you can go back to whenever you may need a little pick-me-up.  Just pull out your Gratitude Journal and begin reading all the things that you are grateful for, and it will help put things back into perspective, and help you to feel better.

If you have children, and want to make this even more fun, invite them to be part of the process, involve them in the feeling of gratitude and appreciation and see how many things they can come up with to add to the list. You will be amazed at how many things they think of. They may even decide to make their very own Gratitude Journal, therefore raising the vibration of your entire household. This is also a wonderful exercise to share with your partner, your friends, your co-workers and anyone else you can think of.  It’s all about creating an Attitude of Gratitude, so I encourage you to give it a try, and please share your stories, I would love to share them here so we can all read them in a future newsletter!

    Where attention goes, energy flows. The teachings come in so many ways, shapes and forms, they all say the same, but they are all beautiful. Thank you for this beautifully written reminder.

    Bambi, thanks for this idea. Despite being so seemingly simple, it can be so effective at keeping us ‘in the moment’ when it comes to what we’re grateful for. I heard a statistic today of how many people live on $2 a day but, since I can’t back it up, I won’t repeat it. Yet it was an eye-opener. Just the fact that we have computers takes us so far out of that category, no matter how difficult things might seem on any particular day. Just being born where we were, just waking up where we do. We should be able to put down 150 things in a DAY … so doing so in a month makes this idea so very do-able!

    Bambi, thank you so much for this post, gratitude is so important and the reason for that is that when we are in gratitude it sends back out to the universe the energy it took to create the things and situations and experiences that we are grateful for.

    Today I have found so many reasons to be grateful I had to stop and feel them all and send the gratitude back to the universe.

    Thank you again, in LoVe and Gratitude ~Gaylena

    Great article, Bambi! Indeed, we take so much for granted and don’t even “see” what we have and for which we should be grateful–every day! I will start my ‘Gratitude Journal’, something so simple, yet so powerful.

      I love this idea Bambi! We DO all have so much to be grateful for! There has been so many changes in all of our lives, some good, some not so good.. but I think once I start my “Gratitude Journal” I will soon see how many blessings I have to be grateful for… Can’t wait to start. Thanks Bambi!

    I also realize how important gratitude is. I have a gratitude journal – both online and off. I was having a particularly bad day today and I immediately knew that this was the time for a gratitude list journal entry.
