Gratitude Stories: How Practicing Gratitude Daily Made Me Happier

I started practicing Gratitude daily after reading "The Magic" by Rhonda Byrne. At the time, I had just started to learn more and more about 'The Law of Attraction' and that gave me the courage to quit a job that didn’t fulfill me anymore to focus on my passion for music and acting. However, as I was looking for work, I started to worry and not appreciate all the Blessings I had in my Life. When I started reading The Magic, it opened my eyes that I had taken things for granted such as the sun, the moon, my unlimited access to clean water, the healthy and nourishing food I enjoy every day, my senses, my clothes and so much more! I started to practice Gratitude daily and logging all the Blessings in my Life on a daily basis.
With every log, I felt more peaceful, trusting that with all The Universe’s Blessings I had enjoyed so far and was enjoying, there were still so many more to come. It made me realize that while looking for what I want, I need not forget everything I have and appreciate every little thing.

It also improved my relationship with my partner as there are lovely exercises in Rhonda Byrne’s book to focus on relationships and appreciating all the people in our lives. I do believe the combination of my daily Gratitude practices that renewed my Faith in The Universe combined with studying how The Law of Attraction works and having a daily routine to make sure I apply what I learn led me to find a job I really enjoyed. I found a job as a Singing Teacher a few months after that.
The opportunities and the Blessings that The Universe want to offer us are truly Infinite and having a Gratitude journal really helps to know this with your whole being. When I felt that it was time to move on from my job as a Singing Teacher after a couple of years, I decided to trust The Universe, let go to make some room for newness, for what I asked for, and apply for a Master in Acting that at the time, I had no idea how I was going to pay. Still, I applied, got in and I am now studying the Master of my dream which also includes a singing module and that is perfect for me. My Master is now all paid for thanks to donations through a GoFundMe campaign I had the inspiration to start before my course, my savings, and a Postgraduate loan. The Universe keeps supplying me and taking care of me since I decided to focus on My Mission with Faith and Gratitude.
Have a Beautiful Day!
