The Importance of Gratitude

In these days where the spirit of Christmas comes through the door wide and empower residences, shops, minds and our hearts, gives us an opportunity to reflect on the blessings that surround us.

Curiously, for ten months our main focus is on the job, the kids, the house, the economic duties, in short, everything that concerns us, but not at hand.

But when the week of turkey comes to our attention, our attitude changes completely, the word gratitude is positioned immediately as a priority in our lives and in turn becomes acts that impact everyone around us.

For many, including us, this is the best time of year, because the human spirit is reborn; concretely materialize through kindness, unselfishness and love.

There are others who use this week as a great opportunity to see all that they have achieved; the blessings that they have today and there are others who just simply give without looking at who.

Gratitude is defined as “… a feeling, emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that has received or will receive”. Is this famous word in action has untold power not only for the soul, but the conscience of humanity, that reminding us who we are, where we come from and where we are going.

It is this simple act of love and humility that makes us see who we really are, we are intertwined with each of the people around us, who have been part of our lives whether at a bus stop for a few seconds or for many years.

It is appreciated that action where we magnify as a collective body aware of the importance of the evidence of things that guide us every day, our emotions.

Today the day before the big commercial companies has marked the day where we give ourselves permission to reflect on all we have, forget what we need and especially take the time to savor that we cherish, but we forget of view.

Interestingly one of the acts is common among the great religions of the world converge where the act of gratitude nourishes the soul and about their beliefs.

In turn, several experiments have shown that clients who were called and thanked them for visiting the store the same experience an increase in sales of 70%.

Even large universities since 2000 have been studying the relationship between gratitude and happiness and positive psychology has become part of conventional psychology.

The philosopher Cicero said that “gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” One of the great virtues, as it does not rise to our thoughts tucked in our feelings, this virtue is one that gives us the opportunity to see, feel and taste everything that we are.

What if we take a few minutes to make a deep reflection of all those who have, what we reconnect with our inner happiness.

What if we use this space provided by the Universe to put our lives in perspective and appreciate all the blessings we have.

Today we invite you to reflect on the words of Eckhart Tolle “If your only prayer life was” thank you “, with her would be enough.”
