Live in gratitude

Fear of loss is what creates loss. Love of possibilities is what drives the fulfillment of those possibilities.

What good is it to have something if you constantly live in fear of losing it? In some ways, that’s worse than not having it at all.

Instead of living in fear, live in gratitude. Fill your heart with love and thankfulness for all that you now have, so that there is no space left for fear.

Fill your mind with thoughts of the very best of what is possible for your world. Fill your spirit with a bright, sparkling vision of how good you know life can be.

Sure, the superficial things will come and go, so don’t let those things define you. Instead, treasure the values that transcend every moment and every circumstance.

The genuine person inside is much more powerful than your ego that always feels so threatened. Live in gratitude and let the real, authentic, courageous person you are, always come shining through.
