Gratitude in Latitude

Gratitude is pure alchemy of spirit. Nothing will move your life faster forward than a healthy dose of gratitude. There is a shift in thinking that creates an immediate change in your body chemistry. It interrupts mind chatter and cortisol just as effectively. If you are having trouble finding anything to be thankful for after watching the evening news, then just latch your juicy brain on these hooks. Hitch a ride on these everyday grateful things and add your own in the comments.

The curve of a petal in a bouquet of fresh flowers.

The profile of a little child’s face, tiny nose, tiny chin.

Crimson, golden, green leaves dancing in the sun.

Sunshine so bright all you can do is close your eyes and smile.

The crinch, crack, crunch of freshly fallen leaves.

The smells of trees.

Holding the hand of the one you love.

Hugs.

The clean, warm, calm of a roof over your head.

The sound of a kettle boiling.

Cinnamon.

The royal luxury of a hot, indoor bath.

The abundance of breakfast options.

The wealth of friends.

The releasing tug of a nice stretch.

The warm flow of love.

The first cosy second in a fresh bed.

A long drink of water on a thirsty day.

Smiling eyes.

Smoothing your hand over a new page in your journal.

Reading the last page of a book, just one second before you close the cover.

Snuggling in for a good movie with homemade popcorn.

Being able to have a conversation with the phrase ” The beautiful thing about our relationship is…”.

The quiet, settled, peace of a house asleep.

Crisp morning air, filled with pinks and purples.

Pulling on a nice jacket.

The intimacy of sharing something embarrassing about yourself.

An unsolicited neck rub from lovely hands.

Hearing “Please” and “Thank you”.

Cookies.

Dancing in your living room.
