Gratitude is a powerful element in our quest for emotional freedom and absolute well-being. Saying thank you acknowledges the help and support that others give to you and recognises the difference that people can make to your life. The more you acknowledge the contribution of others, the more you will find people want to help you. It’s a very welcome and positive addition to your daily experience of life.
It’s also very helpful to give thanks to your parents whenever the opportunity arises. Thanking them for everything they’ve done for you can have a remarkable effect on your relationship with your parents and this subtle change can flow into every other relationship in your life. Thank them for loving you. Thank them for caring for you. Thank them for the things they taught you. Never blame them. Take responsibility for what happens in your life and let gratitude shape your emotional responses. You’ll be amazed at the difference this simple concept will make to you and your life.
