Written by Stephanie West Allen

Continued from page 1

Why? Your thoughts are following those old, well-worn, rigid cow paths in your brain. They follow those cow trails while you are not looking. And it does not work to put roadblocks inrepparttar paths, to resist those thoughts. You have to build new roads, create new paths.

Feeling gratitude will smooth outrepparttar 123911 landscape so you can createrepparttar 123912 new paths. Replacerepparttar 123913 thoughts of sickness with thoughts of health, poverty thoughts with wealth thoughts, dread thoughts with dream thoughts. You can then build with your thoughtsrepparttar 123914 health highways and wealth byways and love lanes and self-express-ways.

Singing In The Rain

And we know that once your thoughts are followingrepparttar 123915 new paths,repparttar 123916 health and wealth and love and self-expression will manifest openly and freely in your life.

Letrepparttar 123917 feeling of gratitude rain and reign in your life. It will shower you with pleasures and treasures. It will let you see how you are a mighty, shining raindrop inrepparttar 123918 great rainfall ofrepparttar 123919 good universe. Let “thank you” be your prayer that you sing inrepparttar 123920 rain.

Gratitude Push-up

Before you go to bed, think of an incident that happened to you duringrepparttar 123921 day. Any incident. It can be as simple as eating breakfast or walkingrepparttar 123922 dog or talking to a coworker. Writerepparttar 123923 incident as if you were putting it in your memoirs or journal or autobiography. And do it this way . . .

When you write aboutrepparttar 123924 incident, revise it so it includes your having a LARGE amount of gratitude duringrepparttar 123925 incident. How? As you think aboutrepparttar 123926 incident before you write, feelrepparttar 123927 gratitude flowing intorepparttar 123928 memory. Feel yourself full of thanks. See a smile. Maybe feel a bounce in your step, peace in your shoulders, joy in your posture. Then writerepparttar 123929 incident in this revised version. Don’t worry about good style or grammar or punctuation. Simply write it.

Do this exercise for a week with a new incident from each day. I think you will be surprised at what happens to your level of gratitude during those seven days.
