After years of doing the Oprah Show, Oprah Winfrey began talking to her audience after the show to get a better sense of what women needed.
What she heard over and over was how much women were craving something more from their lives. Despite having an education, a career, and a family, most women felt as if something was missing.
Can you relate?
Do you find yourself craving something more and not knowing exactly what that something more might be?
Being a spiritual person, Oprah said she knew instinctively that “something more” was a connection to something that’s bigger than yourself.
One of the things I love most about the power of daily gratitude, is how it helps you FEEL connected to that something bigger. It helps you stay connected to what already is. To what you already have. To the life force that gives and gives and keeps on giving.
Whether it’s the dream job, car, vacation, relationship, house, or even a baby, it’s important to remember that those things will not fulfill that need for “something more” in the way that true appreciation does.
So on your journey to achieving all that you desire (and I’m not saying you should give up on your dreams, never ever!), be sure to include an attitude of gratitude.
Make today count.
Smell the flowers.
Look people in the eye and smile.
Walk in the woods.
Talk to the trees.
Search for butterflies.
Money and “things” don’t buy happiness. Appreciation does. Tweet this!
Learn the art of appreciation now and that dream house and love relationship will seem all that more delicious once they happen for you.
