The word gratitude derives from the Latin word “Gratia” meaning grace or graciousness. I think the beautiful thing about it is, when we feel gratitude, it kind of encompasses all of these things, that feeling of graciousness, gratefulness, and ultimately grace, all in one.
Today on The Karen Kenney Show, I’m talking about the power of gratitude and how the act of being thankful brings so much power with it, that we sometimes miss in our hurried ways of extending it.
It’s wicked easy to take Gratitude for granted.
The “idea” of it gets thrown around so much in our culture - to the point that it almost becomes something we just say “or do” without any real thinking or feeling behind it.
Today I’d like to encourage us all to slow down, pause for a moment and really allow ourselves to tune into the gratitude we are thinking, speaking and feeling and let it wash over us with its sacred loving-connection.
Let's get into the habit of when we do feel grateful - to pause, take a deep breath in, exhale it out twice as long… and really see or imagine in our mind what or who it is we’re grateful for. Then move that feeling down from the head to the heart.
Say goodbye to just “checking the box” of gratitude practice and instead experience it at the soul level extending the grace, gratefulness and graciousness to the humans, animals and Nature all around us.
