Attitude of Gratitude: Magic of Being Thankful
By: Candice Frazier, Certified Master Transformation Health & Life Strategist, Life Skills Competency Educator
When I look back at where I have been and where I am now…I am literally blown away. I am full of gratitude and hope in a way that never has been on my radar! But I used to have no idea what the meaning of “attitude of gratitude” truly meant. I thought it was a “think it and be it” type of approach.
I had no idea it meant to be in the “feeling” of gratitude, or even how to get there through the hard-cold reality of struggle bus and Stuckville.
But despite all the difficulties, I had a deeper sense that if I kept holding on to hope for better days, that it would come. And they would come and go throughout the course of my early adult years. But struggle was always at the forefront and gratitude was often not even a vague thought. And so that persisted, until I began my transformation journey.
Why is that? Because I have had to overcome a lot in my life, yet no matter how hard it always was, even in the depths of depression, I had a sense of it will get better, even if it doesn’t feel like this now. It was not very big, but there was a spark in there, deep down, begging for the fuel to grow brighter. I had no idea then that it takes pressure to make diamonds…or how to get there. And gratitude was the missing ingredient for my success.
I know I am not alone in this feeling…can I get an AMEN?!? I know that we are struggling with the poo that Monkey of Life is throwing at us continually and being thankful for the struggle is one of the hardest things to do.
But I do know that my simple shift in believing I can do anything I put my mind too, is how I have made the changes in my diet and lifestyle. This has allowed me to experience Optimal Health for the FIRST TIME in my life!
Frank Hughes said, “Experience isn’t really the best teacher but it sure does serve as the best excuse for not trying to do the same silly thing again.” So why is it we as humans keep trying the same thing over and over expecting a different result each time? Isn’t that definition of INSANITY? YES!
If you want to change that…you have do a few things with mindset. You must choose a positive life stance, i.e. your attitudes, assumptions and expectations you hold for yourself and others and the world around you. This includes money, your health and what you expect for your children’s future as well as your own.
By holding to a positive life stance- you not only give yourself the skills to manage bad/negative experiences and turn them into POSITIVE GROWTH!
The real gift is by doing this for yourself you gain confidence, can empower others and rise above whatever that monkey slings at you! You will start to look for lessons in your messes and struggles and that is the gift that comes from the ability to reflect and see “rupture as bridge to regrowth”.
Always remember…without struggle there is no progress. The key is to take the energy from the struggles, i.e. the adrenaline or anger and use it to figure out how you can solve the problem and learn from the lesson and help you tap into your creative side!
I have used the law of pain and have found a way to turn into something beautiful and powerful. I took the lemons and made lemonade. I created a life by my design doing what I love and what I feel is what I was called to do…serve others. Show them the way back to their wellness and find their purpose.
I see a future with many freedoms that I never had before. Where once I saw nothing to live for and lost all hope, becoming a coach and helping others gave me that hope again. I now have learned how to make goals and work towards them and how to take the struggles stones and polish them off and find the beauty in them. Just like when I was kid and collecting rocks!
Look out world…this girl has a mission to change lives…and it started with taking care of my health and well-being and the magic of gratitude is the key ingredient to my self-care success. Therefore, I get up every day and help others. I know that it is possible to find our way back from depths of despair, but it takes the right approach.
I know you can do it too, because, together we are stronger! I will be your wings until you find them! YOU can LEAN ON ME!
This shift is also possible for you. But you must be willing to take bold, intentional action.
