Here’s an idea... Try it out. Write your
own gratitude list.
When writing your own gratitude list,
it is important to be open to everything.
Write without judgment. In other words,
there are no wrong answers. Gratitude,
it is said, is the memory of the heart. Be
as complete as you are called to be. Write
the entire feeling or memory. Or just write
down three quick thoughts, memories, or
Where do you begin?
Start with those things talked about
all the time by your Yoga teachers, your
heartbeat, or your breath. Those are
things that are all too easy to take for
granted, but without them we are nothing, we “are” not.
If you are at a loss for where to begin,
try answering these questions to get your
heart feeling and your brain moving:
Who gave you life?
What flavors do you love?
What film, book or song changed
What’s that thing a person told you
that stopped your mind?
That perfect day…?
The best gift you’ve ever received?
Your favorite teacher/mentor, and why?
The most amazing moment from your
The best advice you’ve ever been given?
Or the advice you are most glad to
The moment when you realized you were
more powerful or capable than
The moment when you felt smaller than
you were, but were elevated by faith or
The smallest, most trivial thing for which
you are grateful?
Remember, it’s your gratitude. It’s perfect
just as it is. All you have to do is say,
“I am grateful for…” >>
