You Are Royalty!

For the past few months this word has been showing up a lot in my life. What does it mean to have gratitude? Webster's says it's a quality. Simply being thankful. It's a readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. But if you ask me..... 

I'd say it's a way of life. 

Sure, you can be grateful for a moment, a situation, a person, an item; but, what does being grateful all the time do? I firmly believe that we have the power to create. Our words are like a magnetism to our life. What words we let trickle off our tongue quickly become our reality. 

I always get sick.
You catch a cold. 

I'm always late for work.
You get stuck behind a bus. 

I don't have any clothes.
You drip ketchup on your new shirt. 

I will never meet the right guy.
Guys never call you back. 

My husband calls this "Murphy's Law", but I call it "Classic Law of Attraction." Here's another example, this one really opened up my eyes to the true power that lies in the tongue:

If you are in a constant struggle financially and you say, "I just want more money." then you are persistently creating the feeling of WANTING more money! Make sense?

Imagine if you were just grateful daily for the things you already had. For the small amount of money you do have. For the clothes hanging in your closet right now. For that car that runs every single day. Instead of saying, "I want more wealth." you'd say, "I am wealthy!" you would incessantly attract wealth into your life. All of this either sounds like a bunch of new age hoopla or it makes complete and utter perfect sense!

Here's a few things to be grateful for: 

If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead, and a place to sleep… you are richer than 75% of the worlds population.

If you have a little money in the bank or spare change in a dish someplace…you are among the top of 8% of the world's wealthy. 

If you can drink from your kitchen faucet whenever you want… you are more fortunate by far than 1.5 billion people who have no access to clean water at all. 

If you can attend a church or a political rally without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death… you have the kind of freedom denied to more than three billion people in the world. 

If you can read this message, you are more blessed than two billion people who cannot read at all. 

If your everyday problems are weighing you down, there are millions of people on Earth who would gladly trade places with you right now-problems and all-and feel they have been royally blessed.
