When I’m in a negative state of mind I’m totally unproductive. Actually, I’m destructive. I don’t cause any physical harm, but the thoughts and actions that arise from a negative state will only bring forward similar energy. It’s Newton’s 3rd law of motion,
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Being grateful is the fastest and most effective way to instantly shift from a negative to a positive state. So next time you’re feelin’ a little out of flow, or you’re feeling down from a set-back, swipe through these 50 Shades of Gratitude to help shift your state (courtesy of Gaya Today).
My favourite gratitude quotes from the 50 Shades of Gratitude are:
4. Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you’ll never have enough – Oprah Winfrey
8. Gratitude is one of the sweetest shortcuts to finding peace of mind and happiness inside. No matter what is going on outside of us, there’s always something we could be grateful for. – Barry Neil Kaufman
10. Some people grumble that roses have thorns. I am grateful that thorns have roses. – Alphonse Karr
15. Gratitude is the ability to experience life as a gift. It liberates us from the prison of self-preoccupation
