Wake up with gratitude
Gratitude is another word for thank you but it is more common to say thanks or thank you. Gratitude is a message that has been inscribed in all of us from the universe. There is great power to gratitude but not everyone pays as much attention to the power of gratitude as they should. There is also much to be thankful for.
Gratitude is an ancient message of the universe. It is also a part of the power of manifestation. If you are thankful for something that someone has given to you, the likely hood is that next time they will give you an even greater gift. If you do not appreciate what is given, the likely hood is that they will not want to give you anything else due to the lack of appreciation. The power of manifestation does not work well with negativity. manifestation does not favor negativity.
Life and the universe work in a similar fashion. You have to be grateful for what you have. You have to show some appreciation for the gifts that have been given to you, in order to receive more. Life is like a gift that you have to unwrap carefully in order to reveal your blessings but if you do not take care of the
blessed gifts that have been given, they will either be taken away from you or you will receive no more.
Let us use parent and child as another example. The parent gives the child a gift but instead of appreciating the gift, the child has a tantrum because the child want a more expensive gift or more gifts. The wise parent takes away the gift from the child, for the child to learn the lesson of gratitude and to be with nothing until the lesson is learnt. Next time the child does receive more because the child has truly become thankful. Think of the universe as a parent and yourself as a child.
It is not just about saying thank you as a matter of courtesy but also being genuinely thankful. Genuine gratitude becomes a part of you and you learn to appreciate much more. You learn to appreciate the life that is yours and life all around you. Such gratitude magnifies an appreciation for life and the days that are yet to come.
Wake up and be thankful that you are awake. Wake up and be thankful that you have a job to go to, if you have one to go to. If you do not have a job to go to, wake up and look forward to all the wonderful things that you can accomplish. Wake up and appreciate the people in your life and be thankful that they are still in your life. Wake up and be thankful that the day will present you with the opportunity to help someone at work or elsewhere.
If you can wake up with thanks to the day ahead or eventually gather your wits to give thanks for the day ahead, it shall be a good day.
