5 Easy Tips to Bring More Gratitude & Abundance
Into Your Life!
1. PICTURE IT!
my favorite ways to express my gratitude is to take pictures through
out my day of the little things in life... that I'm grateful for. The
other night I captured this shot on my walk with bud...with technology, iphones and pocket cameras this is so fun & inspiring!
2. WRITE IT!
At the end of your day - make a list of the 5 things you are grateful for. (Sometimes I sketch mine) If you can write more... AWESOME! There have to be at least 5 things that you can be thankful for, even if it's as simple as your warm bed or a cup of tea.
3. VISUALIZE IT!
like to visualize! I walk everyday with my 4 legged best friend and as
I'm walking I start to take in all the things around me and in my head
(or sometimes out loud) I say...Thank you for the birds, Thank you for
the beautiful trees, Thank you for the clean air, as I think about all
the beautiful things in nature that I am thankful for I visualize that love and gratitude going out into this world. I always feel lighter and brighter after I do this one.
4. FLIP IT!
Have you ever heard the saying "Attitude of Gratitude" ??
When your speaking negative things or thinking negative things you are

kind of have a deal, when one of us is getting into the negative talk
or focusing on all the bad - we say "Attitude of Gratitude!" This is our
cue - and our friendly reminder to one another to stay on track with a
positive mind set. Catch yourself when you aren't in that positive
mindset or if your speaking negatively - and FLIP IT! All it takes is
that simple little shift!
5. EXPECT IT!
Ya, I just said.... expect it! You should expect greatness in your life. Why wouldn't you? When
I expect my day to suck, it always does. When I expect that my day will
be AMAZING, it ALWAYS IS. ALWAYS. Expect beauty. Expect joy. Expect
love. Expect blessings. It is life changing.
attitude, your feelings, your words - can shape you, can transform your
life and your days for the better or for the worst. Maybe you aren't
sure which way you are being shaped right now but you have the power to
Try one or all five! Gratitude = Abundance
