Gratitude is synonymous with thankfulness + appreciation, but when I think of gratitude I think about valuing what is important, not just acknowledging it. It's easy enough to express your gratitude by saying thank you, sending a nice note or sharing a special gift with someone to let them know how thankful you are for them.
When you say thank you, it can brighten someone's day. It might simply come and go, but when you are grateful for someone or something you make a point of taking care of it.
The things you value in your life say a lot about you. They tend to make your life easier, but sometimes harder. Taking time to think about what you are grateful for offers a great deal of clarity around what is useful and what isn’t useful.
Learning something new each day is also an important part of growth. It’s important to make space for growth to occur by clearing out clutter--physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and metaphorically--to welcome personal + professional expansion.
Out with the old, in with the new!
You can do this by literally getting rid of stuff, practicing forgiveness, releasing pent up resentment, shame, regret or other things trapping you in the past. You can even try magickal techniques such as banishing or cleansing rituals.
Gratitude helps you let go of the heavy burdens you are carrying. The trappings of a scarcity mindset look a lot like hoarding. Constantly worrying about not having enough amounts to piles + piles of useless stuff, just in case because you never know when you might need it.
If you get rid of it, I promise you'll survive. You’re a resourceful, thoughtful human capable of figuring out any problem. You've made it this far, haven't you? Take a moment and tell your past THANK YOU for getting you here.
