Sometimes we know something but our understanding deepens when we have a lived-experience.
For most of my life, I knew that gratitude was an incredibly powerful way of being. From a very, very young age, my parents instilled in me the importance of being grateful for who I was, what I had and what I could do. They consistently taught me the power and significance of saying thank you and other along with other expressions of good manners. Gratitude has always been an important part of the fabric of my life, and I am very grateful, because it taught me resilience.
I have been recently experiencing the power of gratitude in a most remarkable way. It is transformative to use both gratitude and forgiveness to negotiate the terrain of everyday emotions. When even a slight unsettled emotion surfaces, I use forgiveness and gratitude to heal the feelings.
