Benefits Of Gratitude

Here in Australia it is the Australia Day Long weekend, and I personally like to give thanks not only today but every day for the privilege of being able to live in this beautiful country of extremes both in terrain and climate.

At present we have floods in Queensland in the north, and bush fires south in Victoria, whereas here in Sydney this has been a day of  much needed rain, with more to follow.

So often we see frowns and looks of displeasure on the faces of passers by on such days. How the weather affects our mood!!!

If we can focus on the blessings we receive each and every day, I find that outside influences such as a rainy day have little or no impact on our overall well being.

Make gratitude your priority each morning as you wake, and whatever the day brings you will find it will flow more smoothly and your whole being will benefit, physically, mentally, emotionally as well as spiritually.
