Eckhart Tolle says, “If the only prayer you ever say is ‘thank you’, that will be enough.”
There is something powerful about living from a place of gratitude. Being eternally grateful and showing gratitude is like speaking the language of the heart. Gratitude is a reminder of how fortunate we are and how magnificent life is. It puts things into perspective and has the power to shift the entire state of our being; emotionally, mentally, physically, energetically, etc. A moment of stress, frustration or annoyance can transform into a state of contentment, happiness and deep appreciation for the endless things to be grateful for.
