For me, there is nothing more beautiful than to be around people who are grateful for what they've been given in life. I do believe that gratitude brings out your inner beauty. Designer shoes, designer handbags, designer clothes...There is absolutely nothing wrong with having these things. I say, if you have the money to buy these things then why not?!? As long as you remain true to yourself and don't take things for granted.
I find that when I remain in a state of gratitude, more of what I want comes to me. I feel grateful for what I have right now and don't complain that other people have more than me. After all, being able to wear a different outfit everyday is actually a luxury for many people around the world.
Gratitude extends far beyond the realm of material things, though. I share gratitude towards the people who help me find that perfect outfit...or gratitude for the healthy foods that are available to eat.
On one of my other blogs I talked about the power of "Thank You" and how the art of writing Thank You cards has been slowly fading away. When I worked at Nordstrom I often sent out Thank You cards to customers and loved it when they came back to shop with me because I took the time to show my gratitude for their business.
What are you grateful for today?
