As Rumi said, “There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.”

How do you show thanks? Gratitude is more than an attitude, it is a way of being. In its highest form, it is an active practice that drives your behavior. Studies show that grateful people report higher levels of positive emotions, life satisfaction, vitality, optimism and lower levels of depression and stress. They are also more likely to reach their goals. With each sunrise, kiss the earth. Start by taking a deep breath, feeling the life force in and around you. Review at least three things for which you are thankful. Throughout the day, show appreciation for everything that is life-affirming. Lead with kindness in all of your interactions. Be quick to give and forgive. Seek to share a smile with as many people as possible. Every day is another blessing – a chance to express your gifts and share your light.

Until next time, remember – it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!

With Purpose & Power,
