Health is not always about just the body. Your mental health is just as important to have a well balanced life. I have a lot to be grateful for in my life. Counting my many blessings daily has helped me maintain a healthy mental attitude. It is a proven fact that showing gratitude can help lift your spirits, give you strength, and bring you peace.
Bob Proctor put it this way, “Gratitude is an attitude that hooks us up to our source of supply. And the more grateful you are, the closer you become to your maker, to the architect of the universe, to the spiritual core of your being. It’s a phenomenal lesson.”
One way to show your gratitude is to give back. If you want something new if your life you usually have to give something to get it. For example, if you want to improve your health you may have to give up your daily Ding Dong addiction. If you want to declutter your house you will probably have to give away some of that clutter. If you want to gain a healthy relationship you might have to give up a relationship that is not so good for you. See what I mean?
Another way to show gratitude is by expressing it verbally or in writing to whoever needs to hear it. Try telling your children how grateful you are for them. Or tell your mother the same thing–watch how their countenance changes and how much better your relationships become. Gratitude is a well spring in life.
I have to tell you, I am grateful for you. I am grateful for all you do and have done to support Saving Dinner and our mission, to bring families back to the dinner table. I am grateful every time you put a healthy meal on your table for your family, every time you pass over a donut and grab a healthy snack. I am grateful for all you do to help yourself and your family be healthy.
This week we as a company, are showing our gratitude for abundance and giving back. This is why we have chosen to support Feeding America. As you may have heard, we’re giving 20% of our proceeds to the Feeding America organization. These folks are amazing, I invite you to check them out, http://feedingamerica.org
