Living from Gratitude… from Mary Morrissey

[I’m preparing my notes for speaking at the Unity Church in Frederick tomorrow morning and discovered Rev. Toni Fish’s blog on the church website. She had this quote there and I had to share it. I love that the power of gratitude is that strong. Boosting our immune system and more… A powerful habit to form. I’m a big fan of gratitude and this only reinforces it. Yay! And Thank you… ;~)  And thank you to the trees for all they provide us. Thank you to the fog. The water… so much to be grateful for… ]

“Recent research tells each one of us that there is a whole chemical shift that happens in our bodies when we decide — and then determine — to live from gratitude. It makes our immune system much more potent. It makes us able to keep ourselves in a healthy state, no matter what we’re around; it is almost as if a bubble of protection is around us. It is not something we can manufacture by pretending, but it is something we can create by entering into a field of gratitude. There is also new research behind that that says speaking your gratitude out loud actually amplifies the positive effects of holding gratitude. It is one thing to think gratitude and feel gratitude, but when we express gratitude we amplify the positive results not only for ourselves, but for the others to whom we express it. When we live from gratitude, everything works better. So my friends, this day let us each practice thinking, feeling and speaking our gratitude.”
