The Downside Of Gratitude

739

Before we dive into this week’s MarieTV episode, I have to tell you how amazing you are.

Your support of my appearance with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday was absolutely staggering.

The tweets, FB messages and emails you’ve shared with me have been so heartfelt, loving and encouraging and I deeply appreciate it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times over!

If you tuned in, you know that one of the things I talked about with Oprah is the importance of gratitude.

But what I didn’t get to share was the dark side of this often cheery topic.

Let me explain. Here in the US, we’re getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving and there’s going to be a lot of gratitude talk going around.

But what many of us don’t realize is that gratitude requires sacrifice, and it can be quite a shocker if you’re not ready for it. Click play to see what I mean.

VISUAL WARNING: brace yourself for some massive Jersey, 7th grade hair in this episode.

Gratitude is more powerful than any pill you can pick up at the pharmacy. – @MarieForleo

OK, now that you’ve been fully informed, let’s get this gratitude party started.

In the comments below, tell me 10 things you’re grateful for.

If you’ve got more, awesome – keep going. But I want to challenge you to write at least 10. And once you’re done, report any instant side effects about how you feel.

Thank you, as always, for watching and contributing. If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving this week, I wish you and your family a safe, loving and peaceful holiday filled with delicious food, tons of laughs and great times.

P.S.  If you missed me and Oprah on Super Soul Sunday, catch it for the next two weeks on demand over at Oprah.com/SuperSoulSunday.

With love,

Marie Forleo

Ok, so the immediate side-effect of this exercise is that I do feel happier. It reminded me of things that I needed toput on my to-do list. I feel productive, useful, and lucky.

I am grateful for my (1) beautiful skin, (2) for the “bee shit” cream that’s giving me beautiful skin, (3) fruit gummy snacks that is keeping up to study, (4) finding my textbook and solution manual for $20 last night, (5) that my uncle gave me his past exams, (6) that I have marietv to keep me company, (7) that my weave looks super cute, (8) that my ballet pointe is finally looking decent, (9) that I just remembered I need to register for classes, (10) that I have a job that pays me $100 a week because that’s better than nothing!

Marie, I was delighted that I was able to watch your Super Soul Sunday episode online from Australia. What a thrill and a career highlight it must have been to be on Oprah – many a person’s dream! Congrats and well done.

On gratitude: To be honest, I don’t feel the need to keep a gratitude journal. I’m acutely aware of what I’m grateful for. I’m also acutely aware of what I need and/or want more of in my life. I do, however, tend to make lists once or twice a day. It keeps me motivated and ensures I’m on the right track.

Happy Thanksgiving to ‘y’all’ in the USA – from your ‘mates’ (that means friends) Downunder.

Thanks Natalie! I love my little pup (well 50 lbs, so not SO little ;) so much. She’s a rescue who chose us, ran up, tail wagging, looking up so hopeful. How could I resist?

Super! I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. It was a wonderful reminder on the power of gratitude. The key, I guess, is to make this attitude of gratitude a habit, so it is automatic. Thank you! Here is my list:

2. The opportunity to travel this year
3. The time and space to build my biz online
4. The learning so far this year – huge learning – thanks to B-school for a lot of that

7. The amazing online communities that support me and my biz – again B-school is one of those fab communities.

10 things I’m grateful for today:

1) Red Hot Chili Peppers
2) Music that heals
3) My resilient heart
4) My power trifecta (Marie Forleo + Danielle Laporte + Kris Carr)
5) Entrepreneurial spirit
6) Coffee
7) Bellydance
8) My sensitivity
9) Books (the paper kind)
10) Pocket unicorns

This video, as always, has beautiful timing. I downloaded an app called Gratitude365 (it’s free-ish, I think…might be $0.99) so that no matter where I am (because my phone is attached to my hand) I can always record what I’m grateful for. I’m on Day 19 – life changing.

Great idea on the app!! And on a more personal note… LOVE that you’re grateful for your sensitivity! I often felt it was a weakness growing up, but now I can see what a beautiful thing it really is. Thanks!!

I’ve tried gratitude journals before and the habit never stuck – so far the app is sticking – YAY!

As for sensitivity, it’s something I’ve learned to honour. I used to squash it, hide it, hate it – and now I embrace it. :)

Snap girl…..we are on the same page. For the last month and a half I have been tweeting and facebooking what I have been grateful for everyday. The results have been amazing….More energy, I’m connected to my friends and family on a level I could only image and lastly I have got my sexy back *blush*

Just some of the things I am grateful for are:

1. Being able to express my spirituality openly and freely without persecution
2. I am married to a man who has integrity, honor and strive to be excellent in all he does.
3. A network of family and friends who support my vision, ambitions and goals to make an impact in this world.
4. The ability to study towards a degree that I know that I can use to make an impact in this world.
5. To surround myself with the beauty this world has to offer
6. The ability to earn a living that I can support my family
7. My creative expression
8. The opportunity to think for myself and to evaluate situations that come up
9. A healthy lifestyle
10. To be in love with all that I am and all that surrounds me

7. Kindle books
8. Super Soul Sunday
9. All the beautiful spiritual teachers in the world that teach me so much and pave the way for my generation of spiritual teachers.
10. My breath
11. My book club
12. My apartment – running water, heating, my kitchen, my shower, my bed,…

I could go on and on and on. I’ve kept a gratitude journal for a few months now and I always have to stop myself because I could just spend hours on writing down every little detail :D

Writing down what I’m grateful for gives my body and soul an instant energy kick that makes me want to conquer the world :D It opens my heart and helps me to breathe deeply. It shifts my perception back to a miracle mind-set. From that state of consciousness – everything is possible!
Thank you for reading this my beautiful friend and if we don’t know each other yet, find me on social media

Over the last couple of years there have been some nights I’ve gone to bed with being grateful because “something during the day” seems all too much….My grateful thoughts are – I have an amazing healthy family, The man I love is so much more than I ever imagined, I have the “bestest” girl friends in the whole wide world, we have a beautiful home (roof over our heads) and we have a fun life! With these grateful thoughts I can go to sleep without worrying anymore. It truly puts things into perpective!

So from now on I will write them down not just think them.
I have a loving family
My health is excellent
My partner loves me unconditional
I love laughing with my besties…there hilarious!
Sipping gin & tonic while watering the veggie patch in the afternoons
Laying in bed on Sunday morning reading the paper with my man
Watching my Mum & children talk & laugh together
Having choices
Walking along the beach
Listening to the rain on the roof

I feel so good writing this down thanks Marie. Oh one more thing I am really grateful for my brother Glen giving me his DVD The New Money Masters with Tony Robbins interviewing you Marie because that changed my thought process and ultimately my life!

Happy Thanks Giving

Hi Iris! I spotted your comment and just wanted to say how much I love that you included Jacob in your list :) When I met up with him last week, he gave me something to be pretty grateful for too: connection. He reminded me how much I love the people in my life, and also how much I’m craving ‘real-life’ interactions. Plus he introduced me to you and our awesome team way back when, so that’s pretty cool :)

I also hear you on the education, pancakes and dance class! You can’t beat ‘em.

Practising gratitude is awesome. I’ve been doing it on and off for about 5 years now, listing at least three things at the end of every day that have made me smile. I’ve found it a little difficult to get into daily meditation (unless it’s part of my yoga practice – savasana has become one of my favourite things!), but being grateful is so easy, and the benefits are immense :)

10 Things I’m grateful for:

1) My family. (I absolutely LOVE my parents, grandparents, great-grandmother, step-mom, sister and my in-laws.
2) My life partner. (She is the most wonderful, supportive person and has stuck by my side and proven unconditional love).
3) My dog Markie. (He’s the sweetest thing, makes me smile, makes me laugh, keeps me active and shows what it would like to be a mom).
4) My Nichiren Buddhist Practice. (I love having a spiritual practice that helps me grow and be victorious in all areas of my life. SGI-USA has been a HUGE support in my life and I love the friendships I’ve established and the SGI President Daisaku Ikeda is a WONDERFUL, inspiring and loving man).
5) My home in Maryland. (I have a wonderful apartment, great neighbors, plenty of inspiration and all the resources I need in a modernized world).
6) My school Institute for Integrative Nutrition. (I’ve learned a TON about Holistic Health and Wellness, Nutrition, Life Balance, am gaining the expertise and credentials needed to begin my very own health coaching practice and I’ve made some really great friends).
7) Clean water and nourishing food. (I’ve learned how to eat well to improve my health, I feel nourished and have access to whole foods and organic foods which is truly a blessing).
8) Nature. (Nature gives us EVERYTHING we need to be happy and healthy, and surrounds us with beauty and makes us feel apart of a bigger picture).
9) Wonderful books, informative sites, great blogs and awesome gurus/experts such as Marie Forleo, Carmen Marshall, Elizabeth Rider, Jessica Aiscough, Kris Carr, Gabrielle Bernstein, Mastin Kipp, Deepak Chopra, Joshua Rosenthal and MANY others. (I learn so much daily, understand my life more, create balance, feel more inspired, improve my health, feel capable of creating an awesome life and understand my mission in life).
10) The Universe. (There are protective forces that surround, heal and keep us safe, forces that allow our prayers, wishes determinations to be answered, forces that create synchronicity and a feeling that someone..a higher power is always with us).

There’s so much to be grateful, this list could go on. I feel warm and fuzzy just thinking about these few things :-) What a great exercise. I agree with Marie Forleo that we should ALL keep track daily of all that we’re grateful for.

Hey Marie!
In the Spring of 2010 I went to my studio in Dumbo, Brooklyn almost every day and made a 12″ x 12″ canvas with the words “thank you” etched into the final layer of wet paint. My 18 year marriage had come to an end that January and I processed it through gratitude. I amassed nearly 40 of these paintings over three months, each one allowing me to meditate on all the incredible gifts of my marriage: how my husband had always believed in my art, the places in the world we had traveled to and our greatest gift and collaboration: our then twelve year old son. I can attest: Gratitude is a game changer. For me, it opened my eyes and I even started a business based on these paintings. Out of that, the most satisfying thing has been writing a blog on gratitude. Because I am a visual person it is mainly a photo I have taken with a few sentences explaining why I am grateful for what is in the picture! Check it out: http://gratitudedesigns.com/blog/
So here my top ten as of 6:22 am 11/20/12:
my full and overflowing life and my connection to the Divine
the privilege to be a mom
love-to experience it and spread it
this earth
ice cream
white porcelain claw footed bath tubs
sunshine
friendship
blue berries
family: my grandparents, my parents, my sister, her family and her husband’s family, my former husband, his family, my son…my future husband and his family.
Thank you Marie. I am grateful for you, your fierceness and passion.
You are inspiring.
in gratitude-
Tara

I’m so going to start a gratitude journal, it’s a brilliant idea. This video was eye-opening for me, thank you Marie! At first I thought, ’10 things, that’s looooaaads.’ I now have way more than ten things.

I feel so grateful for:
1. My amazing family
2. My friends
3. I was blessed to wake up this morning, that’s such a blessing.
4. My health
5. My businesses, I love being an entrepreneur and wouldn’t change it for the world!
6. The hardships I’ve faced. If not for them, I wouldn’t be hear today.
7. My clients and customers who support what I do.
8. The fact that I’ve learnt a new lesson every day since starting a business. I feel so much more in tune with who I am now.
9. Being in my 20s, yes it’s a sucky decade lol. I think I’ve been through about 10 quarter life crises already but I’m grateful to be a 20something because I only get to do this once.
10. For stumbling across Marie! I’ve learnt so, so much from you and am so grateful to have found stumbled across your site about a year ago. Thank you for everything you do!

my gratitude list is :

– my hair has grown a lot! (it was so not growing for years!)
– i had a yummy breakfast
– I discover my deepest fears these days and i release them
– the day is sunny and the wheather is just perfect for a November day
– I am 41 since ten days and I feel good about my age
– I love my beautiful eyes ;-), I feel relieved each time i look at myself in the eyes because I see my beautiful heart in them
– I am opening my heart to joy, deep joy one day at a time and I feel blessed for that
– since coming to the USA two years ago I have discovered such amazing mentors, their visions and speeches was what i was intuitively feeling since i was 13 years old, i feel blessed, i have found my true path & my tribe yay!
– I have a great “caretaker”in my building (i don’t know the exact word), he has made the building so clean and it smells good coffee in his office, he is always smiling, he does his job in such a genuine and happy and generous manner, he is a blessing!
– I am starting to make peace with my family

So i thought oh my god two more to put, it felt such a long list to do! like resistance kind of stuff AND I wanted to put before it was like this before it was like that (a little tendency to go back into the negative thing again)

Voilà Marie,
If you knew how much i needed to do this gratitude list, see! back to the whining,

It reminds me of a scene in Friends when a man comes to sell books to joey, and the guy says to Joey “YOU NEED THIS BOOK” (so funny!)

Hi Marie, great video as always!

If I were to name 10 things, only 10 things that I’m grateful for, I’ll be making all those other I’m grateful for feel sad and left out((

So how about I name what I’m not grateful for? And that’ll be …1. nothing. Seriously, I’ve given up winging and complaining a while ago. I find that everything that I don’t like at some point, eventually brings positive results or there’re ways of fixing it (like bad hair or outdated cushion covers:)

Wishing everyone a fab day!

Gratitude is circular.
When I started realizing all that I’m grateful for, my mindset shifted from “What can I get” to “What can I give” and “How can I help?”
This affected my every interaction with others, who began to share their gratitude with me.
Infectious stuff.

As usual Marie, I feel like you’re reading my mind. I recently watched a video about marketing and business and the first strategy was to be think about everything you’re grateful for first thing in the morning. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks now and you’re right…it’s had an unbelievable affect on my life. I can feel the difference in myself on the days that I forget to do it.
On that note, I am soooo thankful for my family: amazing parents, wonderful husband and beautiful boys. I’m forever grateful for my friends. And I am so thankful that I found you. You have inspired me in more ways than you’ll ever know.
Wishing you a fabulous holiday.

Hi everyone!

There is SO much to be grateful for, and it’s incredible how quickly I can forget and take things for granted. I adore the gratitude journal idea. Something I will start pronto!

For now I am grateful for:

1. My family. My husband, who I couldn’t live without. We complement each other in more ways than we know it! My children, who colour every moment of our lives.

2. Being able to speak more than one languages. By learning to speak English, I get to interact with millions more people, who open my mind to so much more than I ever could have imagined.

3. Living in a Western world, where my daughter and I are free to express our opinions and follow our dreams.

4. Living in a most beautiful part of England, in a house that we call our home. It keeps us safe, warm and together.

5. Having the luxury of being able to stay at home to work on my business I am passionate about.

6. Health.

7. The internet. Without it how could I have found Marie and all the wonderful people who support one another in what we all strive to do? – It keeps me connected with my family in Hungary. It gives me instant access to knowledge. It gives the ground to my growing business.

8. Creativity. I am still learning self expression, but it’s well on its way!

9. Access to education. 6th year into my Literature / Creative writing degree.

10. Being alive right here, right now surrounded by the people I love.

Much love,
Veronika

I was taught to make an alphabetical gratitude list. I did it every night for a week recently, and slept better, deeper, and fell asleep more quickly. It’s a fun way to play with gratitude, and makes you dig a little… (x? “excellent local eggs”) Eventually gratitude becomes this quiet hum in the background that’s there more often than it’s not…

Mine today: healthy children, when my daughters sing together, running water, electricity, a completely inspiring business launch ahead of me, a wide net of advisors, a friend, the delicious smell of sweet potatoes in my kitchen, that I’m able to love others more openly than I used to, and – oh, no, is ten up already??? – my kind, sweet, glorious, supportive husband.

I have been “practicing gratitude” for 60 days now, writing down 6 things I am grateful for each morning and a bunch of positive statements like “Today will be a fantastic day!”. It really HAS changed my life (for the awesome-er).
I had a downer of a day yesterday though, so I appreciate the timing of the episode a lot! I never got the invites out to my Pity Party though!
I am grateful
1. That I am getting better and better at being grateful, by practicing!
2. I have a job I love with room to grow and be more awesome!
3. I live in one of the most amazing cities in the world, and I never lost power during hurricane Sandy!
4. I have delicious healthy food I cooked last night at midnight (no reason) waiting for me for breakfast!
5. I am at a place in life where I am focusing on my own growth and awesomeness…i’m really okay with being single! This is a breakthrough!
6. I completely changed careers and am totally thriving in less than 10 months time.
7. I made a video that will be on the jumbo tron in Times Square! Totally a dream come true and unexpected fulfillment!
8. I am learning to ask for what I want.
9. I watched Ted Talks and did dishes last night instead of languishing in my disappointment about the day’s events.
10. I got a good night’s sleep and I’m ready for more awesome!

Thank you, Marie, for this episode! I am writing from Latvia, where people do not celebrate Thanksgiving. Actually, one thing that lately has been making me angry is inability of society to be thankful for what we have – a developed western country with endless possibilities. Of course, also with economical and political problems – but others have it way worse than we do. So, I am thankful for
1. My two healthy, beautiful daughters.
2. My husband who is there for me.
3. Having a higher education.
4. Becoming a feminist and thus getting rid of body image issues.
5. Creating a website for creative people.
6. Having a job in this lousy economy.
7. Having a job that I happen to like.
8. Living in a western country where I have power over my body.
9. That I had courage to paint my hair red.
10. That it is already November and not unbearably cold yet in Latvia.

Hi Marie and everyone! Happy Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it!

I am grateful for the following:

1) clients who trust me enough to invest their hard-earned money with me. I am humbled to be able to do this work.

2) my husband, nicknamed “Duty” because if you need something, no matter what it is, he’s ON IT! (20 years military pays off, dontcha know?) I trust him with my very life. I respect him and love him enormously.

3) I get to do the work of my soul and create a living from it. The Universe has my back and shows me every single day.

4) All the wonderful teachers who lead the way showing us how to really dig deep and bring out our best. (That’s you, Marie!)

5) I’m so thankful that I followed the advice of my Guides in Spirit and joined Crossfit. I’ve done things I never thought I’d do and have grown so much just from making that effort.

6) My Aunt Connie – enough like my mom that I can feel her still around me but different enough that she doesn’t drive me crazy like mom often did.

7) My dog Brogan who has taught me the lesson of patience (I didn’t really want to learn it but he came with a lesson plan so I followed it.) He’s a joy (when he’s not driving me crazy!)

8) My associate and BFF Anni who has stood by me over the past two years building my business. She’s my cheerleader, my coach, my friend and the one who kept me going when I wanted to give up and hide in a closet. I am so thankful she is in my life.

9) The internet – oh, internets, how I love you so!! I’ll never go back to microfiche!

10) my willingness to do the things that scare me the most (crossfit, enrollment calls, working for myself, etc) – sometimes it takes me a while to do it but once I get it, I GET IT! I’m brave. I love that about myself.

Thank you for the suggestion and the space to do this list. I have so much to be thankful for! Blessings to each of you! <3

Sweet Marie,

1. Thank you for sharing your beautiful self with the world on Super Soul Sunday! It was great getting to know you better through the show. I loved seeing pictures of you as a child, and your “Everything is figure-out-able” Mom and Dad.

2. LIkewise, loved getting to know your wise and wonderful friends, Gabby and Mastin. I am grateful that I got to see them on your stage at RHHLive, and then on the little big screen of Oprah too!

3. Super grateful for my 5yo son Grant. He is truly my wish Granted. He loves trucks and tools and legos, but we also talk about what is going on in his brain. He tells me about his dreams and his heart. He enjoys telling his brain to think happy thoughts.

4. This is going to sound weird…but I am grateful for the darkness, those difficult challenging moments. I’ve had alot of them lately…loss, betrayal, disappointment, stress. I am processing and feeling the darkness without losing myself, and using it as a tool to grow.

5. My multi-specialty medical practice Catalyst Medical Center, is growing and evolving, serving more people. Grateful to have a place to encourage transformation on many levels.

6. Thankful that I read The Artist’s Way 3 years ago with a group of friends. It got me thinking about writing, and I now have a regular writing practice and blog even though I resisted morning pages initially.

7. Thankful for books. I love reading stories and wisdom from around the world. Lifelong learning is keeping me young and inspired :).

8. Grateful that life keeps providing incredible opportunities. I’m a kid in a candy store, surrounded by wonderful choices, especially in my work as a co-coordinator of our local TEDx events.

9. Grateful for the love and support of my family. Wow, they rock.

10. Grateful for my senses….ears to hear music and birds, eyes to see the sunrise, my nose to smell the flowers, my tongue to taste all the good things, and skin to feel a tickle or a massage.

Hard to stop once you start! Many blessings to all!

The Internet – what an amazing place and tool to create, learn and connect
My family – My children and husband
Mine and my family’s good health
Mine and my family’s solid, stable life
Freedom – the freedom we have in the USA to be and do as we wish
My father’s enduring love for me. He was my biggest fan, though he past this year, his love and belief in me will be in my heart with all the days of my life.
Oh yeah, so thankful for my silly soap opera I have watched for over 35 years…Days of our Lives, when the going gets tough, it’s this quick and easy get away when needed. (No pills, no self medicating – just a fun diversion)
Yoga – so grateful for yoga which always brings me home to my heart center
My breath…the quiet time I find to mediate. I love my mediation quiet time. It’s a life saver!
This was fun and easier than I thought. I think it is time to do one of these daily gratitude journals. Uplifted already, just when I was going down the wrong path this morning. I said, oh, it’s Marie TV Tuesday. Let’s watch this before I get started off on my day. Thank you Marie…I had something show up that I almost started to wrap a story around…instead my little list here has uplifted me already. It was the perfect shift in the right direction. Thank you!

I never realized it but I apply this principle regularly. I always remind people who seem to think everything is miserable that it could be so much worse and we have a lot to be thankful for. What we Westerners class as a “bad day” would be a breeze for a lot of people in the world.

For example: Our water heater went out recently and we rent so it wasn’t a big deal because we didn’t have to pay for it but my husband still saw it as the worst thing that could possibly happen. My mindset was “At least we have a water heater.” If we didn’t have access to clean water the water heater wouldn’t have been a problem, but I’ll happily take a few minor problems just to have what I have.

6. The blessings of having a healthy, energetic body, positive attitude, and focused mind.

Hey There,
No real order, but based on today …
• Spontaneous evenings with my best friend and mate

• Dusty Springfield’s voice

• Waking up and getting to do what I want to do with my day

• Having a skill that lets me build the life and world I want to live in

• Friends and family that have my back (and vice versa)

• A business partner that I can say anything to

• Living in a world with endless possibilities

• Grape Nuts

• A memory that focuses on the good stuff

• Putting these thoughts out there

1. My relationships with my partner, children, family, and friends.
2. My mother, whose influence continues to reinforce my notions of selfless love and full faith in the Divine.
3. My sweet little home
4. My fur-babies
5. The plethora of ways to learn new things and the ability to access them
6. Choice
7. Laughter
8. Good conversations
9. Good food
10. Having so many opportunities to start over and try something new.

What I know from this list is that it is the little things that I find myself grateful for: a moment of connection, the preciousness of the seemingly simple, noticing that simple doesn’t mean easy, and realizing that whatever I create in my life, without connection to others and the Divine it feels much less meaningful. The other thing I noticed is that I find myself being grateful for fear because feeling some fear lets me know there is something important around whatever ‘it’ is and reminds me to look at ‘it’ closer. Thanks, Marie! Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

5) My well-paying job (even if I’m trying to find a “business I love”!)
6) My health
7) My legs, which carried me through my first marathon in October

1. My amazing husband
2. B-School- seriously. Having permission to do the things that I feel are right for my business instead of following some generic formula was life changing!
3. Time to write my book
4. Amazing friends and family
5. All my teachers and mentors who help me move my business in the right direction
6. Education- past, present, and future
7. Enough money for bills and extras
8. Travel- experiencing new places, foods, and experiences

Insights: This was more difficult than I imagined. While watching Super Soul Sunday this weekend, Marie mentioned the importance of being present and bringing enthusiasm to everything we do. I think infusing my life with more presence and enthusiasm will continue to make me more grateful for the things that I have.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I have so much to be thankful for. I usually spend the first few minutes of the day listing them as I wake up.

I’m thankful for: my wonderful husband, the globe-trotting life we’ve created together, our health, our loving families, my ever expanding yoga and meditation practice, the opportunity to create a business from my home office, our crazy fun friends who enrich our lives and make us laugh, our super cute chow chow/shar pei, being here, in this body at this time in the world and I’m thankful for the magical way the Universe works to attract and teach us to be the co-creators that we are.

We did our “gratitude” a few weekends ago up in the frozen north :) and it’s really given me time to think about what I am thankful and grateful for:

1) Children that sleep until their normal wake up time
2) My own separate office
3) a coffee maker with a automatic timer and shut off
4) hot water in my shower
5) husbands that gut pumpkins the night before Halloween
6) Two sets of parents close by always willing to watch the grandkids
7) Brothers and sisters that stayed close both in heart and distance
8) The internet and how quickly I can find information
9) Being surrounded by people I love on a daily basis
10) Not having to really worry about money

Thanks Marie!!

Great video this morning! Thank you.

I’ve been thinking about doing this for awhile, but thought without action isn’t doing the trick!

I am grateful this morning for:

1. The delicious coffee that was waiting for me when I woke up this morning.

2. My husband, who makes me coffee every morning, who is still attracted to me after 25 years, who tells me he loves me everyday and who has always supported my every whim! I love this man!

3. My beautiful children, who are passionate about their lives and actively believe in, and pursue, their dreams!

4. My sweet cat Smoochie. She snuggles in the morning, gives me back rubs, sips wine with me in the evening, eats Popsicles and purrs when my husband hugs me.

5. My new meditation practice. I’m finding the peace and answers to my questions right inside of me. Ha! Imagine that?!

6. My ability to be vulnerable and speak from a heart level. It is truly amazing how relationships shift when this takes place.

7. Friendship. We are not meant to do life alone. I am so very grateful for the people in my life who choose to be vulnerable and open-heated with me.

8. All the teachers who are now available to me while I sip my coffee, in my comfy bed, with the tap of my finger on my iPad! Thank you, Marie, Deepak, Oprah, Mark Nepo, Paula D’Arcy, Bob Goff, Chris Guillbeau, Kris Carr and so many more!

9. My adventurous, kind spirit, that keeps me dreaming, traveling and bonding in the most unlikely places and ways.

10. The freedom to just be me.

3. being allowed the opportunity to share the experience as our son completes his senior year of high school [and all that goes with that!] and the unveiling of his college and future plans.
4. the longevity of a 50 year friendship
5. finding joy in a really good cup of tea and a few moments of quiet
6.laughter
7. the faith to believe that there really isn’t anything too hard for God
8. the health and well-being of my family and our extended families
9. embracing the true effect of a smile
10. music

So many things, people to be thankful for, but here is a small list:

My honey – he’s my rock, my support as my business continues to grow, and my love

My children – they challenge me to be an even better person – all the time – even those bonus children we’ve taken in!

My family – this includes my parents and siblings. They respect me for whom I am and for that I am forever grateful

My pets – who can’t love a 101 pound doodle as they try to cuddle with you or a 10 pound cat determined to sit on your lap as you work?

coffee – need I say more?

The ‘gang’ – now this isn’t your typical gang, but the rascally bunch with wings and halos – they guide me constantly assist with clients present new programs and products to offer. gotta love it.

LIFE ~ while it is never changing and things are tossed our way, it really is a great adventure that I wouldn’t change a thing – well perhaps a few things, but then the ride wouldn’t be as fun!

sitting on the beach watching the ghost crabs with my sis or maybe the turtles – yeaaahhh – we’re a fast moving bunch, but it’s in those quiet moments that life is revealed and reveled in

I started keeping a gratitude or what went right and why journal nearly a year ago when I read Martin Seligman’s books on happiness. I will offer my anecdotal testimony that it does help. I have a tendency to see the negative and I am in my current living situation, with my parents, my father is a glass shattered on the floor and totally empty kind of person. Keeping the journal does help overcome my negativity and some of the toxicity from being around a very negative person.

I am grateful for having parents who will help me out when I need the help.
I am grateful for my friend Cindy.
I am grateful for my friend Del
I am grateful for Marie TV.
I am grateful that I learned about gratitude journals.
I am grateful for the internet that makes finding and keeping in touch with amazing people and awesome information so easy.
I am grateful for my two little furry beasts (cats) who wandered into my life two or so years ago, who needed my help then and, who now help me by making me smile.
I am grateful that I took the risk to start tutoring as a private business.
I am grateful for all my students teach me.
I am grateful that I am moving forward to being and having more of what I want to be and have.

Wonderful video as always, Marie. Thank you!

Now for 9 more things I’m thankful for…

(4) Grad school: not only am I enjoying the opportunity of studying subjects I am thoroughly passionate about, but I’m able to live in Paris while doing it!
(5) Technology: as much as I make it a point to not always be connected, technology certainly makes keeping in touch with friends and family easier.

6. That I found Marie and got the courage and clarity to go ahead and launch my info-product side project site (AllAboutKettlebells.com)

8. That I live in a city I ADORE (Comin’ live from the ATL – Shorty yell!)
9. That I graduated from Georgia Tech (years ago, but when I was on campus for the game this past weekend I remembered walking around wondering if I would make it out with a degree!)
10. I’m thankful that I was introduced to Marie. In the world of marketing gurus there is not one that I look forward to hearing from and has the relatable authenticity that Marie has. I’m a female working in a man’s world and always have been in college (Georgia Tech was up to 28% female when I graduated,) my first job in the construction industry and now as a gym owner with male business coaches. They have major marketing gurus speak at our conferences, but they are men speaking to men. I dont vibe with them and I don’t always find their stories entertaining OR relatable (and sometimes offensive!) Thank you, Marie for your integrity and just being you.

Great Episode! I am addicted to my phone. In fact, it is the first thing I grab when I wake up. Installed in the notes application of my phone I have written a gratitude list that I must read before I even get out of bed. I also have a few other affirmations and prayers I say as well. All before I get out of bed in the morning. I have found that what I affirm when I wake up in the morning really sets the tone for my day and … Life :)
Here are some of the things I affirm everyday.
Thank you for putting me in the right place at the right time and helping to me the right people at the right time. Thank you for helping me to instinctively know how to handle any and all situations today and for helping me to be a Light of Peace and Love to all the people I meet today. I find that when I share my list with the Universe my day just goes better. I feel more in sync with purpose and my meditation and coaching business runs more smoothly. http://yourlifeisawesome.com/

Thanks Marie! And NO HOTDOG FINGERS!

Thanks for starting this conversation Marie!

(yes even the dudes of the world love you too :) ).

10 Things I’m grateful for:

1) My loving wife (and the fact that she agreed to get up this morning with our 18 month old daughter after I had a late night working).

2) The giggles of my 18-month old daughter followed by a “Dada” :)

3) The patience and love that our dog Obi always had for our daughter (even when she yanked on his tongue!).

4) The card from our neighbors 3 year old boy that read “I’m sorry that your doggie went to heaven”.

5) The internet (because without it, I wouldn’t have the business I have today or would have met so many of the GREAT people I have in my life)

6) Our Customers – who everyday put their trust in us and our products

7) All the people that work for us – we are so fortunate to have attracted SUPER talented people that have taken our company WAAAAY further than I ever imagined.

8) My Health – After a recent injury I realized just how important and grateful I am to be in good shape.

9) Books/Podcasts/Online Videos – It’s pretty freakin’ awesome that for less than $20 (often free) we can consume someone’s wisdom that has taken years to develop

10) Freedom & Flexibility – The fact that I live in a small town (population of 4,500) and that I can still do what I love, with who I want, when I want… makes me the luckiest guy in the world… and I’m VERY grateful for it.

11) YOU (Marie) – Grateful for our friendship and all the love and wisdom you so freely share… you really are blazing new trails for us all. Thank you.

My instant feeling: I want to share more! LOL

So much to be grateful for :)

I’m grateful for the gratitude challenge that is happening at the RSVP rev dot com! It is not over, anyone can join and we are all throwing a gratitude party everyday this month to create a habit of gratitude beyond November and for the rest of our lives.

It happens every year and the same powerful women all come back each year. Many of which I met at RHH live this year and have joined on. Check out all our gratitudes there!

SO excited to be prepping Thanksgiving festivities in Staten Island for 150 evacuees of hurricane Sandy at the Bayley Seton shelter! We’ve been working to make the shelter (formerly a hospital) feel like home at a time when that term seems so lost for these people. I thought to include place cards so each person, children included, can write their name and something they’re grateful for. Now more than ever, these people could use the practice of gratitude. This video inspired me to give journals so they can continue to practice! 150 journals will be a lot to cover, even at the $.99 store… if anyone wishes to donate, please visit http://www.screwsandy.com!!!!! THANK YOU! Wishing a safe, happy, and healthy holiday to all!

And here are two short & sweet posts I previously wrote on gratitude— ENJOY!

I am so grateful this morning. I just delivered a wedding invitation in person to a co-worker of mine and she almost cried. The hug she gave me, and the sheer happiness she felt for me left me feeling so wonderful.
And with that, I am grateful for:
1- being loved by and in love with an amazingly good, charming, and very funny man
2- my incredibly warm, loving family
3- those special, great friends who are like jewels in a treasure box
4- my endlessly loving, unbearably adorable dog, Daisy
5- my miraculous ability to walk, move, breathe, eat, poop (yes I am even thankful for that) functionally, which we call in a nutshell “health”, and that I too often take for granted
6- my beautiful wedding dress which I am SO EXCITED to wear
7- having accomplished a huge goal of publishing my book, The Gods She Chose
8- my part-time job which makes it so that I don’t need to be a *completely* starved artist
9- the wonderful education I got at Barnard and have been continuing at Columbia
10- my vegan diet, and the ensuing, enormously comforting knowledge that my actions do not harm any living being.

I guess it’s a good sign that it’s hard for me to even stop there. Feeling so lucky :)

Here is my list of who or what I’m grateful for:

1) My bed, always there and most restful place ever!

2) My nephew- He is 4 hrs old and always love when I can visit him or a surprise visit this past Friday :) Just a cutie!

3) My yoga mat to help cushion and reminding me to always practice. gotta love yoga!

4) Which leads to my yoga practice at home even if it’s just down dog so I can stretch my body and mind for a few minutes a day.

5) My boyfriend of officially a year on the 23rd! Just so glad we can support each other to really grow and just be ourselves around one another especially in dorktastic moments hehe (aka saying Brad Pitt’s new ad for Chanel #5 is very close to his character Louis for Interview with the Vampire if his hair was longer & wearing a puffy shirt)

6) My dorky obssessions from Interview with the Vampire movie, books by Anne Rice, Star Wars, Big Bang Theory, Discovery Channel, all the things inbetween. Always making room to put in movie references in conversations :)

7) Very grateful for my family even through divorce and all that, all & all everything has shaped me to be a better person, took some time of course.

8) ART! I’m a graphic designer and known I wanted to be an artist since I was 4 years old. So glad I’m in a professional I love and following the impulse from such a young age.

9) Art Museums! Love that I get inspired everytime I leave one even if my eyes hurt from all the info/ beauty I’m trying to absorb

10) Travel to all the places I’ve been (London, Paris, NYC, Miami, Honduras, Hawaii) and the place I feel I must go to before I die (Italy for sure!, Greece, China, Japan, etc.)

Before I start, just want to mention a free, online gratitude journal! http://www.happyrambles.com They send you an email, at any time you prefer, and all you have to do is click reply and list at least 3 things you are grateful for that day…

The Oprah Super SOul SUnday episode was AWESOME! Absolutely loved it! I must say, Marie, I am a twenty-something female in South Africa who seems lost and I feel as if you guys spoke my language!

1. My parents for allowing me to follow my dreams, supporting me and providing me with the best they could offer.
2. My sister, for calling me out on my shit and for being an awesome sibling.
3. My gran for her amazing cooking and love.
4. The rest of my family – especially my year old nephew – for being such a joy!
5. Stumbling on blogs, websites and books which brought me out of my “quarter life crisis” and which are teaching me to like myself – as well as to be authentic. Thank you from the bottom of my heart: Marie Forleo, The Daily Love, Connie Chapman, Tara Bliss…..
6. Writing on my blog – which allows me to express what I feel and be myself
7. Having a comfortable life with a roof over my head and food in my fridge and my own transportation
8. My best friends for being everything a best friend should be!
9. Having the opportunity to have traveled to a very small part of the world and having the love of travel instilled in me
10. Books! And, my favourite television series for making me laugh, keeping me riveted and providing a place to escape to.

Instant side effect – being at peace, my heart full and just being happy with who I am and where I am at this point :D

Thank you, Marie!

I used to write gratitude lists everyday and it was definitely life-changing. Looking back, I felt more fulfilled, present and content than I do now and life has sky-rocketed with success since then, which is interesting to me. Makes me realize it’s more about my attitude of gratitude than life! Thanks Marie!

Gratitude:
-to be married to my best friend and that he is consistent, shows up and has his own thing going on with work and is motivated and adventurous
-to have the opportunity and financial means to move to europe this year (with said husband :) so I could go to grad. school and follow my dreams
-getting to spend time visiting family and friends
-learning truths and more information about me and my family and being able to handle them
-friends and people I can reach out to
-my health and being open to new ideas of how to take care of myself and hopefully heal some health issues I have
-for my wonderful parents, my sister and my brothers and my relationships with them
-my relationships and time with my husband’s family
-my relationships and time with my extended family
-communication and how important it is and the means I have to connect with family and friends
-for the sense of peace and serenity
-for the roof over our heads, car, money in the bank, and food on our table and success
-a daily relationship with a higher power, etc.

happy thanksgiving!

This is quite freaky. As I woke up today I was thinking on how grateful I am for having gone on probably over a 1,000 + flights in my life and always arriving safely.

I also bought Benny Hsu’s great Gratitude 365 app and had not yet put it to use so whipped it out on my iPhone today and then saw your video. I think gratefulness and forgiveness are a huge part of why I love my life every single day and can definitely get me out of a rare funk.

So 10 things I’m very grateful for are:

1. My biz partner in WE Mastermind Natalie MacNeil, we just put on an amazing retreat on a cruise ship in the Caribbean for women entrepreneurs and getting to spend time with her before and during just amped me up.

2. All the WE Mastermind members who put their trust in us to join us on the retreat and be part of it, make big shifts, have enlightening moments and party hard with me at Senor Frogs!

3. My bicycle I was able to jump back on today now that I’m back in Amsterdam, I love the freedom of biking anywhere. It makes me smile.

4. Any dog I have ever had the pleasure of coming in contact with, they totally brighten my day with their wagging tails, smiling eyes and unconditional love. I wish I could pack one in my suitcase.

5. Forever and always my amazing parents who inspire me and seem eternally youthful. I love them so much it hurts.

6. My hugely talented sister who sings like an angel and has really taken on a lot recently in her life and new marriage that I am proud of her for.

7. Ultimate Frisbee – the best sport I’ve ever played and one that allows me to travel the world and have an instant group of wonderful friends who value freedom and fun above all else.

8. My Suitcase Entrepreneur community for giving me a life and business I love through their daily support. You all rock my world.

9. My $100 Change Program and the ten scholarships I get to give away – starting today actually. I can’t wait to see what people come up with and how I can help them build their project or dream into reality.

10. Music – I can’t tell you how my life would be without getting to listen to my fave tunes and shake my booty on a daily basis. An instant mood shifter I love how music can evoke so many emotions.

Oooh I already feel 100 times more juiced!

Thanks Marie

Wow. I really needed this today. I have been struggling quite a bit lately…..trying to get a business started and struggling with a firm and set direction, difficulties with my new supervisor who can’t stand me and I can’t quite figure out why, feelings of inadequacy (much stronger than my usual feelings of inadequacy), emotional numbness due to a marriage that is over but won’t seem to end…..THIS is the list that seems to go on and on. But I know for sure that a few moments of gratitude can pull me out of the funk that I find myself falling into, so I’m going to list the 10 things I’m most grateful for and start my gratitude journal tonight.

1. My son. He’s the light in my world and the person I love to share EVERYTHING with.
2. My newfound appreciation for nutrition and good health through eating the foods I should.
3. My incredible friends. The bond I feel to them is so strong that it makes my heart ache just thinking about them.
4. My morning cup of coffee.
5. The beauty I see in the world around me – the fall leaves this year are absolutely stunning.
6. My house. It’s beautiful. And I searched and searched until I found it, not ever losing faith that it was out there, waiting for me.
7. Financial stability. Always seeming to have an abundance of money, when on paper, it looks like we should be living month-to-month. How does that happen???
8. My family. I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like, but they don’t hold that against me (anymore) and I’m grateful for the peace that that allows.
9. Warm summer nights when I can walk outside in the dusk, warm but not hot, just breathing in the sweet summer air.
10. Hot showers. They seem to wash away negativity and bring a feeling of renewal.

That was a good start! I feel better already. Thank you, Marie, for being such an inspiration. I desperately need one in my life right now!!

Much love to you!

11. The gym – (and The Biggest Loser on Hulu, and the Internet) for helping me lose 30 lbs this year.

13. Ramit Sethi (not that I’ve ever personally met him) for always kicking my butt into gear and helping me along in my psychological shift this year (similar to the idea of “turning pro”)
14. Marie Forleo, for her positive attitude and similar position as Ramit in helping me change my attitude and pursue what I want to pursue.
15. Serendipity and spontaneity.

My top 10 gratitude list:
1. All of my problems are clearly first world problems
2. My husband is my soul mate
3. My husband and I are not merely growing old together, we’re continuing to grow as human beings together
4. I get paid to do what I LOVE (massage and aromatherapy)
5. My sister and I are best friends (after decades of jealousy and animosity)
6. The Universe really does support me (even when it’s not in the way I want)
7. My accountability partner – without her, I wouldn’t be ready to open my own biz
8. Marie Forleo – You give me the tools I need to keep working towards my dream by setting goals that my partner holds me accountable for achieving!
9. Social Media – I’ve made some great personal and professional connections that I can’t imagine not having

5. Health
6. Alive
7. Sunshine
8. Weekends and Days off
9. Dancing
10. Freedom

I forget how wonderful my life is and how blessed we are even here in America. You are right that it’s easy to join in and complain. Sometimes the luxury of surrounding myself with positive people is not always there as a mom. Perhaps I need to be the one who emits the positivity. Thank you Marie!

I am grateful that more people are speaking to Gratitude. I just started keeping a Gratitude journal last week during Mastin Kipp’s The Daily Love Extravaganza. Stopping at 10 things that I was grateful for became a problem…a great problem to have!

I loved reading through the other lists on this thread. Talk about empowering. Reading others’ gratitude, I didn’t realize how much joy it brings!

1. A God that loves me.
2. My cat that adopted our complex. He brings so much laughter to all of us.
3. My warm bed.
4. My mom. She does so much for all of us. I hope to give her so many more opportunities through the success of my business.
5. My beautiful friends.
6. My dedication to personal growth.
7. My spiritual growth.
8. Music! Spirit-moving music!
9. Living in California. Our weather and access is incredible.
10. Books. I love having a stack of books to read at all times.
11. Platforms such as this to help others grown (Marie, Mastin, Gabrielle, et al)
12. Dancing, movement
13. My creativity as God Creates!
14. Nature. The beauty and power of God’s creation.
15. Me. In all my crappy and beautiful moments, I know that beauty comes forth from everything that I experience.

Thank you, Marie!

My spiritual relationship with the most high!

My husband. (He is supersexyfinehotyummy and supportive of me!)

My children.

YOU, MARIE. You changed my life and taught me how to build my business as a speaker. You are the reason I met my best friend, Beth Picard. You have been the catalyst to so much good in my life. I’m gratitude dance bombing you, NOW! THANK YOU so much. I can never fully articulate how much I love you and appreciate you…so a dance bomb is gonna have to suffice. I was so proud to see you on Super Soul Sunday! Go ‘head on, Babygirl!

Being able to talk to my Dad and forgive him for leaving our family when I was a little girl. We talked two days before he died in February.

My amazing friend Rev. Natalie Ford. She is some spiritual super sauce.

Second and third and 550th chances to start over and make it right.

Finally owning the fact that I am a writer, finishing the proposal, and knowing my memoir The Recession Maid Me Do It is going to find an agent, a publisher, and sell like a mofo!

For the ability to beat the odds, no matter what, and inspire others to do the same. Honey, everybody ain’t able to keep it moving… but I’m so blessed by the tests. Every trial has been a lesson and a step into the future I know is gonna be AWESOME.

For the wisdom, laughter, recipes, and love I hold deep in my heart from my mom, Ella Parker, who is now the best guardian angel a girl could have.

Instant side effect—hearing James Brown singing “I feeeeellll goooood!” Think I’m finna dance, yo!

I love you, Marie! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Ah! The power of gratitude; what a beautiful topic to address on this week’s episode of MarieTV. And as usual you did it with such great wit.

The top 10 things that I’m most grateful for are: my optimal health, my loving partner, my supportive family, my dear friends, my daily yoga practice, the healthy foods that I eat, working for myself, Mother Nature, living in a beautiful place, having travelled and see many parts of this wonderful world.

Now I feel blessed and joyful. Thank you Marie.

Love this episode, loved Super Soul Sunday (although I do need to watch it again as I kept getting interrupted and missed some of it). As always, so much amazing information, so many inspiring thoughts and motivating… everything!
Things I’m grateful for today:
1.) my husband – too many reasons at this moment to expound upon
2.) my sister who’s currently traveling across the country to move in with us – haven’t lived in the same city with her in over 15 years and will be spending our first ever Thanksgiving together!
3.) my little house
4.) my noisy, grumpy kitty
5.) the opportunities of this past year that helped us discover where we wanted to be
6.) my chickens – so much entertainment!
7.) my ability to take care of myself when needed
8.) spinach and artichoke dip
9.) dance
10.) community
11.) Marie – you’ve been an incredible inspiration this year

Right now I am grateful for:

1) Having finished my in-home studio so I can finally work from home!

2) Having loving people in my life who support me 100% and also keep me on the right path.

3) Living in a wonderful city but surrounded by nature in the house my grandparents built.

4) Being lucky enough to be born in the US, at a time when we didn’t worry as much as the generation before me or today’s generation. It may seem silly but I am glad to have grown up relatively free of post-war angst and modern economic despair.

5) So grateful every day to be able to do what I love to do and share it with people all over the world.

6) Health! Though I certainly need to move my butt a lot more than I have been lately. Also that my darling man has come through a cancer scare and we can start to put those fears behind us. Our health is truly the most important gift, without it we can do nothing.

7) I’m grateful that I have the resources to do more with my life than I ever dreamed, including dreaming up things to continue to reach and struggle for.

8) Grateful for my sweet cat, a rescue who loves me more than anything and I love him right back.

9) I’m grateful to have found some wonderful people via the internet to help me in my long journey to creating my new business and my new take on life. Thank you Marie Forleo, Kris Carr, Lissa Rankin, Chalene Johnson and others for showing me what it means to take charge of your life and proving I can do anything I put my mind to.

10) I’m grateful that every day I get another chance to try again. I spend a lot of time worrying that I don’t live up to my potential, that I didn’t accomplish my goals for the day, etc – but I am so glad that each day I get to climb out of bed and give it another shot. Practice makes perfect!

Thanks Marie for encouraging this list, it makes me feel energized, grounded, and deliriously lucky to be alive!

Hi Marie!

Here are the 10 things I am most grateful for right now:
1) Having a family that is incredibly supportive and adores me.

3) I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to start my career in India.
4) I feel blessed by having such a loving and caring girlfriend as I do.
5) I am swept away by how awesome my boss has been in giving me the freedom to pursue proejcts I care about, and how flexible he has been with allowing me to pursue things outside of work, and granting me leaves to pursue them.
6) I am grateful for my friends in India, Mexico and the US who show me so much love and keep me happy.
7) I am grateful for my health.
8) I am grateful for being in the US right now.
9) I am grateful for my mother´s health.
10) I am grateful that on this trip I get to see both my Mom´s and my Dad´s side of the family, as well as some of my closest friends.

Thank you for the amazing, insightful video, again! The ‘fine print’ voice over was a perfect touch and really made my day. I kept a gratitude journal years ago but now I have so much more to be thankful for!

1.) My incredible husband who has worked so hard to develop a true partnership with me over the last 15 years.
2.) My gorgeous little girls who are my sunshine every day.
3.) Our life the way it is designed. Living where we want to, doing what makes us shine.
4.) Knowing that my body and mind are stronger and more full of wisdom than I ever thought possible.
5.) Family. Although I live miles away, they love me without question and they are my roots.
6.) The knowledge and ability to feed the mind and body through my love of cooking.
7.) The wind, the trees, Mother Nature and the miracles she brings.
8.) The journey, not the destination.
9.) Freedom, of thought, expression, speech and organization.
10.) A manageable disease and my insulin that keeps me alive to enjoy #1-9 every day.

Thanks Marie! I am uplifted and am going to go kiss my babies right now!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Thank you very much for this video. Watching it and thinking about what I’m grateful for made me realize that I’ve fallen into a bit of a slump. That I’ve become more focused on the negative in my life, and that this is the perfect opportunity to begin turning that view point around.

1. I am grateful that no matter how difficult today may be, I can always try again tomorrow.

2. I am grateful that my husband is dealing with his experiences from deployment and becoming a better person everyday.

3. I am grateful for my family and that they are the some of the most loving and giving people I know.

4. I am grateful for my sister, who is my best friend and one of the people I love with all my heart. She keeps me grounded and is never afraid to build me up or tell me when I’m wrong :)

5. I am grateful for all my friends who accept me and love me unconditionally. They embrace all of me, oddities and quirkiness included.

6. I am grateful for my marriage to a man that not only loves me unconditionally but also works hard to be my friend and let’s me be his.

7. I am grateful for my cats, my little balls of fluff that leave me laughing constantly and shower me with snuggles and love.

8. I am grateful for my health improving and understanding how I can maintain those improvements.

9. I am grateful for technology and how much easier it has made my life and how much easier it is to communicate with others.

10. I am grateful for having enough money to pay our bills and that in future we will far exceed the income we have now.

5. For all the tears that have taught me, so much.

1. I am grateful for my fiance and his amazing support. I am lucky to have a man that supports my endeavors and enjoys even watching me work.I am grateful that even though we live in two entirely different countries (canada and the U.S) we are devoted to each other and travel to each other for extended visits.

2. I am grateful for his children who now adore me, and have given me the chance to be a ‘parent’ figure which has given me a deeper understanding about my own experiences as a child and my own parents.

3. I am grateful that he is a father, and I believe he is one of the best daddy’s I’ve ever known. He plays and interacts with his kids despite his disability, plays pretend and makes them laugh often. I’ve never heard so many “I love you’s” in one household between kids and parent. He encourages them to play pretend, to be creative and always puts them first – and his kids love him for it.This has given me the chance to see what a ‘real loving family’ is like that it brings me to tears.

4. I am grateful for my grandfather whom I care for full time as his caregiver. He has allowed me to turn his basement upside down into not only my “woman cave” but also as my studio despite his unwillingness to “change” things. It has allowed me to care for him full time but also put my creative nature to use and work at home.

5. I am grateful for my business, Sahetah’s Jewelry. By starting my own business, I’ve gained confidence that I’ve never had, the ability to communicate with others at craft shows and feel comfortable doing so. It helped me find the joy of speaking with other people and hearing their stories and their journey. It helped me find like minded people with their own journey becoming an artist. It helped me really appreciate the value of handmade. I am most grateful that through my business it drives me to continue learning new techniques and constantly growing as an Artist.

6. I am grateful for my wonderful and amazing German Shepherd Tasha. Though I’ve only known her since she was 6 years old, she has been an amazing and loving companion. Through understanding dog behavior (another avenue I had wanted to venture in, but as a caregiver I’m required to be at home, not rehabilitating dogs at shelters) that dogs often portray our inner feelings because of their extreme sensitivity to their owners emotions and react on them, I’ve realize that I have always lived with constant anxiety, and she has helped me to calm myself and relax. She has also been my protector, and with a history of abuse she has made me feel safe walking on the street where the men who often would prey on me, would steer clear of me because of Tasha’s presence. Though she loves strangers and receiving lots of pets on the bus, Only a few times I’ve been able to witness how quickly she can respond to a person when they are acting inappropriately, such as when a drunken man has tried to approach us rather quickly (who we found out was kicked out of the bar my dad was in because he was sexually harassing the waitress), or when a stranger had tried entering my room while we were both asleep. She checks on me when I’m asleep and always stays by my side, watching me when I’m about and standing guard at the front door when I’m gone.

7. I am grateful for my close friend Chris who stuck by me and helped me out when my family stranded me in Toronto with only the clothes on my back, turning a visit at a friend’s into a more permanent stay. Without his kindness and support at finding the confidence in myself to take steps I was so afraid to take…being alone on a bus surrounded by strangers and men I didn’t know…I don’t think I would have survived. He helped me get on my feet, despite having nothing. His support was the only reason that the overwhelming hurt, realizing how little my family cared about me or my well-being didn’t break me, because there was at least ONE person who cared. I have always valued his friendship, and perhaps one of the best dudes around to have your back. :)

8. I am grateful for my health so that I can be creative, so that I can use my hands and travel and support my fiance whose body has failed him. Even though he is limited to his abilities due to his failed back surgery and current health advances unable to correct the problem – my health and confidence gives me the ability to help support him, and he helps support me.

9. I am grateful for the chronic depression I had when I was a teen. Through it, I discovered my passion for art and writing and my artistic abilities drastically advanced. For that period of time I learned how to write poetry and wow my teachers with compelling stories. I have thus continued to write, with a project in the works, this would probably not happen without that time period where I learned to really enjoy writing and to excel at certain topics.

10. Lastly, I am grateful for my family. Shouldn’t we all be? I am grateful for my parents and my sister’s selfishness, for putting themselves first over their children, for manipulating others to take over their OWN responsibilities for the simple fact that they are too lazy to care, for never saying “I love you”, for refusing to be there at my rescue when there was a chance I was going to be sexually assaulted, for their lack of interest in my schooling when I was a child, for the corporal punishment over mundane things, for hitting me yet again at the age of 15 which caused me to leave home and live with my aunt before I permanently adopted my parent’s attitude as my own like my other sisters and thus giving me a chance to feel what it is like to have parent figures actually care about me. For not playing with us and encouraging us to be imaginative and be creative, for spending time with the TV instead of us, for yelling at me when I was sexually assaulted at school by two boys with not an ounce of sympathy and no hugs. I am grateful for their continued disdain of me, and their selfishness that has continued to put themselves first above their children and even their own parent (my grandfather whom I care for) which as hurt him emotionally time and time again – perhaps the only time I’ve ever seen him in tears. For treating my grandfather like a chore and wanting little to do with his care (thus I have taken care of him since the age of 20), for their continued desire to hold me down and control me so that I am forced to do what they can’t be bothered to do (like caring for my grandfather instead of them doing it), and that the realization that I am a free human being (which they realized when I took my first plane trip out to see my fiance thus the idea of me getting married and moving on, perhaps not even living in the same province anymore) scares them and creates even LESS support from whatever minute support they give (in comparison to the whooping financial and physical support given to my other sister for being cruel to them by cursing, shouting at them and threatening them…perhaps something I should have adopted if I wanted my parents support?) For despite being a very wealthy family, purposefully keeping me poor and not supporting me to the point of trying to interfere with anything that may change that. For treating me that I deserve no pay, as if they are doing “me” a favor because I care for my grandfather, thus having a roof over my head and thus deserve no money to pay bills (forgetting the fact that if I didn’t do this, they would have to up and change their lives drastically by either moving him in, or moving into his cramped home or he’d have to pay to live in a Retirement home thus sucking up all the money they hope to get from him when he dies – which I also get none)

You’ve taught me through your actions and poor behavior to be a better person. You’ve taught me about the person I never want to be.You taught me to be loving, because I understand the pain the absence of love creates. You’ve taught me to share and to be giving, because I understand what greed and selfishness create. You taught me to never seek your approval and never desire it – as the day I have your approval is the day I’m no better than you. You taught me determination to succeed and reach for what I need despite resistance and disprovable, that the only approval I need is my own. You taught me that I never want to find a rich man to marry, or be rich because money becomes priority over family. I’ve seen poor families support and care for their children when they needed some financial aid and make sacrifices to help their children succeed.

You taught me a lot about what ‘not’ to be, and I am proud to be the person that I am.

I’m grateful 1) for Marie Forleo and dozens of other amazing guides, 2) the goodness of people, 3) a place to live, 4) believing in my work, 5) the wonderful feminine energy in this online community, 6) the tools to be productive, 7) glimpses of humility, 8) balance, 9) ambition, 10) health.

Also, I’m grateful that I love someone, and someone loves me.

Side-effects… Less fear. The clutter isn’t so overwhelming. The to-do list just turned from an ugly burden into chicken scratches of meaningless ink. I’m looking at it, and nothing’s changed, but the task list actually looks much different. Less intense. There’s a lightness… a smile energy just in the corners of my mouth. I guess I can just do whatever I want today.

Thank you. :)

Thanks for this video Marie! I think this is something I know I should be doing more often but never seem to get around to :) I think this will be the start of a new morning routine for me – journaling the things I am grateful for! So simple but so effective.

My 10:

1) My wonderful supportive family
2) My wonderful supportive boyfriend
3) My business
4) My clients
5) My special gifts and talents that allow me to serve my clients
6) My health
7) The fact I get to live and work in a foreign country
8) Having clean running water and electricity
9) Having access to and being able to afford food that keeps me healthy
10) Having the means and motivation to make a change in the world

The results: feeling instantly calmer and less stressed out about all the small things (that don’t really even matter that much anyway!) – and seeing the bigger picture more clearly… :)

Marie,

Thanks for the great reminder of this. It can be so easy to drop into the pattern of “oh, I already know this stuff so I don’t need to practice it.” I’m letting that go and getting back on the daily gratitude train!!

Here’s my current gratitude list:

1. My incredible, beloved partner
2. My sweet puppy
3. The tribe of amazing friends of mine who reside all across the country.
4. The ability to dance my ass off and get free whenever I choose.
5. All of the amazing, gifted and inspiring teachers I get to learn from in this life time.
6. COFFEE.
7. Creative self-expression.
8. Living in a clean, private, and healing environment.
9. COMMUNICATION.
10. LOVE.

Perfect way to start an inspired day today. You freaking rock, Marie!!!!

2. My bestie, my cat Abbie
3. My husband who is smart, handsome, giving, brilliant, calming, talented and unbelievably supportive of me

6. My new business, which I love, love, love!

9. The fact that I was born and grew up overseas – I learned so much from those experiences.
10. My country, the United States of America. Still the best place to be a woman.

13. My Subaru Legacy which gets me safely to work.

Hey Marie! Great video, and it really resonated with me because I am currently doing a personal challenge for the month of November – to take a photo a day of something I’m grateful for. I’ve invited my friends to join and we have a joint flickr pool – feel free to add yours! (http://www.flickr.com/groups/im-grateful-for/pool/) I was suprised that more people didn’t join in because it takes minutes every day; it’s amazing how people resist making the effort to be grateful for what they have in their lives.

For the second half of November, I’m taking it up a notch and completing this sentence every day “I love my life because…” I’ve found that to be even more powerful and exciting than the gratitude journal, because it bubbles up a lot of joy even if I’m feeling down. Because hell yes, I love my life!

QQ – Can you share your source for the data from Emmons? I’m blogging about my month challenge on gratitude and would love to include it.

You ROCKED Super Soul Sunday! Congratulations.

I am thankful for my amazing wife who from day one has always believed in me and supported me no matter how crazy my ideas are. I’ll be forever thankful for my parents and all that they’ve done for me over the decades. And my brothers for always keeping me on my toes.

Very thankful for my health.As am I thankful for relaible electricity, constant clean drinking water, the roof over my head and the safe streets I live on.

Thankful to have the oppurtunity to have a business on my own terms at WebSiteForYour.Com.

I am thankful to able to travel just about anywhere in the world. But also happy that I always get to come home to the amazing place that is Fort Collins Colorado.

And believe it or not I am thankful I was born poor and spent my early years in a bad neighborhood. It taught me street smarts, how to be resourceful, and that I really don’t need anything material to be happy.

Last but not least I am thankful to live in a time where technology allows people to connect especially in the name of teaching.

Hi Marie, I tried this and the down side to writing in a gratitude journal everyday = it gets boring and ineffective. I still have the journal and sometimes I pick it up and take a look at what I’ve written in the past and it definitely cheers me up so that’s a plus. Other studies have suggested that writing down a list of gratitude items every other day or once/twice a week rather than everyday can sustain those positive thoughts/feelings. If this is more effective, then I might have to put a reminder “ding” on my iPhone because sometimes I will forget or I’ll put it off. Thanks for your vid! I liked the tweetable too. Cheers!

3. My husband who is my biggest cheerleader.

5. My dog, Bodhi, who lights up lives and is always at my side.
6. My amazing friends who love and support me no matter what.
7. My parents whose love, patience and desire for a child brought me here. (They tried for 2 years! I’m an only child)
8.Gorgeous big skies in Arizona
9. Hikes in the canyons with my friend, Susie.

Writing these things definitely takes my mood up a few notches and gives me a sense that all is right with the world.

1. My new place I put on offer on yesterday with the most amazing view!

2. The fact that I mustered up enough “who the heck knows” and gave my 30 days notice at the “job” of my dreams to start my own company

4. All the God given gifts I was granted without even asking.

5. Finding MarieTV

6. The beautiful relationship with my brother.

7. The ability to choose

8.. That the dots are connecting

9. That I can afford a car that once upon a time was just something to say “Wow!” at as it drove by

10. That I am guided and taken care of and the opportunity to remember that by doing this exercise. Thank you Marie.

Wow, what an experience. In the short time it took me to do this exercise by the time I rolled around to #8 I could physically feel my internal energy shifting and -as weird as this may sound- my face felt different. I don’t know if it was the smile creeping up on my face or the energy. It also has shown me what an incredibly powerful proactive this can be and this has certainly now become my ritual when waking and before going to bed. Writing it has so much more of an impact than thinking about it.

Loved this episode!
Gratitude is in fact scientifically proven to improve our overall happiness and makes us more aware of new opportunities around us :)
It’s one of the most common used positive psychology interventions because of this! Research has actually shown it’s most effective if done once a week i.e. write 3 things you’re grateful for 1 a week e.g. every Sunday. (If done everyday it can become more of a chore and hence loses its purpose.)

Here’s my list! :)
1. For my supporting, loving partner
2. For my 2 gorgeous horses who always try their best
3. For being able to study my dream Masters in positive psychology
4. For the positive feedback I’ve received for my blog – hopefully I am helping people!
5. For living in the developed world where we can electricity and internet
6. For having almost recovered fully from my flu
7. For having a big, loving family
8. For the man who cleaned our windows today (which I didn’t realize was included in our property contract!)
9. For my Airbook that makes work so much easier, quicker & more efficient

I am daily grateful for my working brain, heart, eyes, limbs;
I am daily grateful for wonderful family, friends, good health (none of which is achievable via money);
I am grateful for my ancestors who gave me my long legs, big blue eyes, sense of humour, and sense of gratitude (see how that works?);
I am grateful for my wits and ability to survive just about anything (history has shown this to be true);
I am grateful for the best kids in the world (which is is still uber difficult to achieve, solo, but they ARE the best);
I am grateful for the job I have, based on 30 years of hard work,
I am most grateful for my artistic nature as a fine artist, coupled with my 30+ yrs of advertising experience.
I am grateful for my ‘never say die’ attitude and bottomless pit of energy.

Side effects of this gratitude:
overall, more things to be grateful for

My dog.
The amazing superheroyou genius course last week and the INCREDIBLE gifts putting it into action it’s bringing me. Woohoo. (One of the things on the course was to choose three or more words to describe the self – what you want to be and start living them. I did it and made an acronym and now just saying the acronym floods me with a rush. And the first part of the acronym is HUGE: Happy, unlimited gratitude, enthusiastic. Quite topical ;))
My health and energy
My creativity
My wonderful clients
The amazing people in my life, family and friends, who give me so much – sometimes just thinking of them – that my heart feels like it’s going to pop because there’s no more space.
NLP and coaching – what I give is a great reinforcer and reminder for me – a constant cycle.
Nature from birds to mountains to rain to butterflies to the Earth. Just blows me away. We are so blessed to be here.

5: Friends that call me out on my stubborn old-pattern shit.
6: Music. The soul + hip swirling kind.

10: Taking this moment to acknowledge my life, just as it is today.

5 – that I had the courage to let my hair color go natural to find that out and to do a lot of other things that many people would shy away from doing — starting my own business, starting a parent association, getting involved and putting myself out there
6 – Marie’s great videos that I listen to while walking in the mornings and they really give me a great start to the day
7 – a beautiful place to live surrounded by lovely countryside
8 – the internet for bringing me together with people I love from across the world and across the years and giving me a way to make a living

2) My new ability to teach yoga and help people heal.

8) The colour yellow.

However the people who I work for, are kind-hearted and have supported me through various changes and new adventures in my life in the past year. I only realised last week that they have given me 11 weeks off this year! Now, that is something to be grateful for.

THANK YOU, Marie for these weekly videos! You really do inspire me and I am grateful for your Tuesday shows. I look forward to them every week!

Marie I am grateful for you. Inspired by what you shared with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday I approached my usually dreaded appt for an oil change on my SUV today with passion. And what happened was truly transformational. I caught myself having negative thoughts about having to be the last stop on my dealership’s shuttle (I just wanted to get back home quickly to get back to work). In that moment I decided to instead connect with the other people on the shuttle. Magic was created with that decision. The short story is that after being dropped off at home, I wound up experiencing a fire for the first time in my life – a literal kitchen fire. When I finally arrived back at the dealership after putting out the fire I had a massive headache and just felt I needed to speak about the frightening experience and about how the situation and about how it went from bad to worse. I didn’t want to share it with my husband when he came back from his business trip later today. I knew it would upset him and didn’t want to do that to him. I tried to share it with the shuttle driver when he picked me up to pick up my SUV, but he didn’t really understand English. Wouldn’t you know that when I got back to the dealership, the very woman who I had connected most with this morning on the first shuttle happened to be back there at the same time as me. She was happy to let me work thru the scare with her and even gave me some ideas that really helped me. It all came from your powerful advice of being passionate about whatever we are doing (from making the bed to doing to the dishes). Thank you Marie. I am so grateful. Life lived this way can never be the same. How wonderful that is.

I’m grateful…
…to have been born into literally the most amazing family on the planet.
…to live my life surrounded by amazing friends old and new.
…for the country I live in (Canada!)
…that my life is above all, filled with love
…to have a job that I’m good at and that I enjoy
…for the big dreams I have and that I have yet to see come true – so much to look forward to!
…to be a WOMAN in the best era for women yet.
…for every single lesson I’ve learned “the hard way” (is there another way to learn?) yup, those lessons I have got down pat!
…for coffee and wine, laughter and sex, sunshine and the ocean – the parts of life that really make it worth living.

I’m grateful to finally be learning that despite my perceived shortcomings, failures, weaknesses and vices… I am enough. I am unique. I am here for a reason, and all those elements of myself that might be deemed flaws are actually what make me human. And above all, my humanity is what makes me beautiful.
Thanks Marie – great reminder. xx

I am actually doing a 30 day gratitude challenge with a couple of friends, where we post everyday something we are grateful for. On day 9, but sadly it’s bringing up some things that I long for and don’t have and am trying to be patien about. Argh. Anywho, my list:
1. My health – hardly ever get sick, both parents have high BP, I fall at low end of the BP scale
2. My youthfulness – in my early 30s but consistently mistaken for early 20s (I guess black dont crack)
3. Though I yearn for romance and a family of my own, I am insanely grateful for my family and friends
4. Kind words and inspiration
5. A roof over my head
6. Awareness of the beauty in the mundane
7. Art, film, books
8. The uniqueness of others
9. Sore muscles to remind me to be proud of the physical work of exercise that I do
10. The exercising itself to keep me sane

1. cliche but im thankful for my little boy. he changed my life and challenges me every day

2. the journey im on creating my own business, its super exciting and amazing to see something come to life that you are working so hard on.

3. My gay marketing BFF Michael Mcnish he and people like him who light that fire to keep me going when im all wtf am i meant to be doing

4. my super friends who have changed over the past few years to more supportive upbeat people. its true you cant keep up that supportive upbeat personality yourself all day every day if you cant feed and feed off of other people.

5. having a ridiculously expensive roof over my head. because doing so means i keep my father above board moneywise while he helps my grandmother who is 93 years old and needs the support of a family member at all times.

6. Its coming into summer here. i cant wait to get some gorgeous summer days. we live right next to the town pool so im making it my personal mission this year to go atleast twice a week.

7. looking for a job. an odd one i know. but its amazing all the things that come out of your brain when youre looking for a job you love. currently i need a job to support my business as i live in a small town and im just getting started. but im looking forward to the day when i dont need a job and my business supports itself. so looking for a job for me is a natural thing to be greatful for because it helps to support who i am, what i want to do and how im going to do it.

8. living in new zealand. yes we have crime, and all the rest of it, yes some of it is horrific, but its nothing compared to what some people live with every day.

9. my mother coming home from denmark, she went off and did her own thing for awhile, but i would love her support looking after my child while i try and get off the ground and hey presto here she is (and i didnt even have to ask it just happened)

10. for being me, because im pretty awesome :D

The Get In Shape Girl

Ten Things I am Grateful For…

1. My family and my man. They are so supportive and have my back no matter what.

2. Crossfit. It pushes my past what my mental limitations are daily and have helped me discover that strength is beauty. Abs, delts and glutes are all bi-products of making myself stronger and doing what I love. I’ve never had this kind of confidence in my life.

3. Tampons. Sorry, but think about it. They are certainly something to be thankful for!

4. Airplanes. They make it possible to get everywhere I want to go.

5. The United State Military. They protect us :)

6. Sunshine. The rain is so depressing, I love warm sunny days more than anything in the world.

7. Lululemon. My bank account is not grateful for this, but I am.

8. Nut butter. It’s so delicious and a spoonful of almond butter makes any cravings I have for sweets go away!

9. The internet. Because encyclopedias and watching the news are not that efficient. The internet also allows me to do the job I do (online personal training) and it allows me to connect with people all over the world!

10. My iPhone. Because I can do everything I said above from anywhere these days!

Besides all the good that you and your team have brought to me via the internet I am also grateful for….

* – My incredibly handsome and sexy husband and the skin tingling, mind and body freeing, stress relieving, (After re-reading this, it sounds like it’s leading up to talking about an orgasm but keep reading….lol….) lightening of shoulders, getting my sparkle back, incredible place in our relationship where my husband and I recently found ourselves after finally having communicated (3 – 5 hour sessions) so openly, honestly and freely about recent events that forced us into the conversation and about things and emotions that had been hiding in the background and affecting us for years. * – Finding my balls per se and speaking my truth without worry about the outcome ie; taking care of myself finally.

* – Seeing an incredibly beautiful and deep side of my husband I never saw before.

* – Perspective – Remembering to look at others perspectives instead of listening to my wild imagination gone bad.

* – The hard times and challenges I’ve had and what I’ve learned from them. Finding the positive in the negative.

* – Seeing my son live things I have taught him and coming to me for my opinion occasionally. (And seeing him open the car door for his girlfriend even after a year and a half – makes me smile)

* – My good health, eyesite, hearing, etc

* – Home, water, food, car, bed etc.

* – My spirituality, openess to learn, sensitivity, creative mind, silliness, compassion, empathy,

* – Our close friends who are always there for us and the open and spiritual discussions we have that challenge all of us.

* – Sunrises, sunsets, travel, hot tubs, whiskey, wine, cornfields, traditions, breaking traditions, pets who are always happy to see you when you come home, dancing, laughter, smiles, love letters, flowers for no reason, wood heat, campfires, the adrenaline rush of dirt biking, the peacefulness of sailing, working in my woodshop and cooking, making others smile, (((Hugs))), love, sleep, toes in the sand, private back yard/acerage, the smell of a steak on the grill, homemade bread and chocolate chip cookies, sunshine, the colors of autumn, creating/making things from scratch, hodling hands, cuddling, swimming, ………………………

I could go on and on….and I will, just for me. ; )

Watching my mom as she spent her last days surrounded my those she loved, I realized that is all we can every ask for, and all we really want. I am truly blessed, and wish the same blessing on everyone here! May we all be safe, May we all be happy, May we all be healthy, and May we all live our lives with ease! Happy day:)

Hi Marie!
You are such an inspiration to me! I loved watching you guys on Super Soul Sunday with Oprah. I recorded it, as I intend to replay it frequently! :)
This is my first time posting comments. Rather, I typically observe the comments posted by all of your really insightful and brave followers. :)
I am truly blessed and grateful for the following:
1.Having been able to be at home with my children for the past two years without the distraction of my stressful career.
2.The ability to reconnect with my husband, who is so loving and supportive.
3.My beautiful home and family, and financial stability.
4.Healthy family (my husband, children, father and in-laws).
5.Our safe neighborhood and excellent school system.
6.Spirit..that leads and guides me along my life path.
7.That I have options and opportunities. I’m not certain what my purpose is, but I know that there is a purpose for my life.
8.I am thankful for the infinite possibilities that lie ahead of me.
9.I am thankful for God’s constant love and protection.
10.I am thankful for being lead to you, Marie. You motivate and inspire me.

Wow, I am so glad I took the time to write down the things I’m thankful for! I feel soooo much better. I suffer from depression, and sometimes just finding the motivation to do something, ANYTHING, is a challenge. I believe that I can have a successful business. I know I can! I just need to find the strength inside of me to take the first steps towards reaching that goal.

Thank you, Marie! You are truly a blessing to me.

Its great to practice Gratitude as soon as you wake up and before you got to sleep… to set your day with that vibration in order for u to live the celebration! The more Gratitude u have it allows u to live in Grace! Speaking from experience! Much Love & Gratitude

Marie,

It’s been exactly one week and I have dedicated myself to list 10 things I am grateful/thankful for from that day.

Two things I wanted to share with you:

1. My whole perception of my life, level of fulfillment, and happiness has changed immensely. I have been whistling each day with joy and an immense appreciation for almost everything around me.

2. I realized that I’m addicted to negative thoughts. My internal dialogue is full of worry, what ifs, and everything wrong that can or is happening. What an awful existence!

Just focusing on the good in my life has stopped the negative self talk. This has been one of the greatest gifts of my life and I have you to thank.

THANK YOU MARIE! XO

I’m grateful for….
1. Finding a MarieTV email in my e-box and remembering “hey it’s Tuesday, I almost forgot” and getting that instant perspective on life again. Thanks Marie! You’re awesome!
2. that we all have access to so many authors and great visionaries that encourage us to have faith in ourselves and follow our dreams no matter what “reality” looks like at the time, or how many people understand or support your path.
3. for all the amazing philosophers and poets who I randomly pick up and read a quote that encompasses everything I’m feeling.
4. I’m grateful I grew up and live in Australia with the means to travel and explore other cultures, we are truly blessed here.
5. for those friends in your life who no matter what, have open arms for you, an ear to listen or a kick up the bum (if needed) all from a place of love and compassion.
6. Australia’s beaches

8. my beautiful family who always love me
9. friends that I have cherished for over a decade
10. the luxuries we have living where we are – clean air/water/safety/resources to make a beautiful life.

Symptoms of this exercise…. When I first opened my laptop I was feeling really low after a fight with my sister (who I love dearly, but we don’t see eye to eye on many things) I went for a run, but still couldn’t shake the emotions of the fight – watching your video, Marie, gave me immediate perspective. I stopped thinking about what wasn’t working in my life and started thinking about what was, yay!!! I feel calmer, brighter, back to my old self. Keep up the amazing work Marie, I so admire your consistency and dedication. You inspire me. xoxoxo

Yes, Marie, having a gratitude state of mind makes a huge difference!
I have been able to keep the following under my gratitude umbrella:
1. My health
2. My daughters and my family
3. My paycheck (which helps to keep a roof over my head and food in the frig!)
4. My sister-friends
5. The individuals I serve–my students
6. My education
7. Books
8. My love of learning
9. Women, like you, who inspire other women, who help women pursue their dreams, who are making a difference in the world, and who are fearless in speaking out against injustice.
10. And, finally, the seat that opens up on the subway when I most need it! : )

After writing this list, I feel all goose bumpy! All of these things, and more, make me realize everyday that I am an extremely fortunate individual.

Counting my blessings always! Thanks for the reminder and for being a light in the world, Marie! Enjoy your holidays!

1. My boyfriend. The most wonderful man I could hope to know.
2. My mother. She is so strong. I wish I could help her overcome her negativity.
3. My cat. I love that little monster so much.
4. My grandma. The other day, she drove a long way to take me home when I was sick. I don’t appreciate her enough.
5. My boyfriend’s family. They are an extension of my own and I love them dearly.
6. Everything that helped me take my long holiday overseas – it has changed my life.

Wow, that was easy-peasy and I feel fantastic. I watched Super Soul Sunday and you all were great: looked great, sounded great, and not at all intimidated. I LOVE how you (Marie) said that you’re like part Oprah, Jay-Z, Branson, and Robbins. That made me laugh so hard. Did anyone see the Block Friday movement? You block Friday for an intention – to spend time with family, catch up on to-dos, start your book you’ve been putting off… Whatever! I’m blocking Friday for some creative exploration.

Thanks everyone for sharing your lists.

I am grateful for:

My mom–she is the most giving and selfless person I know

My brother–who ‘became’ my older brother and ‘rock of the family’ when we lost our dad

My son–the miracle…, a child with boundless energy, curiosity and wits even at his 26 months

My husband–never in my life have I felt so cherished and appreciated

My business–that allows me work from home, keep my own schedule and make a true difference

My clients–who trust themselves with me, allow me to shape their businesses and leave me testimonials that bring me to (happy) tears

My mentors–jewels like you, Marie, who lead, inspire and have me push the boundaries of my comfort zone

The very first group course that I recently launched–the process of creating and launching it made me a new person, who I am very proud of :)

And then, of course, international travel, Belgian chocolate, French wine and thought-provoking books.

Thank you Marie. I had a light bulb moment with this video. Your video made me realised that i consciously chose the habit of bitching/complaining about other in my teenage year because i found out if i don’t do that like my ‘friends’ there is nothing to talk about with them and it was very isolating for me. I have the gift to see positivity in others but i traded it with negativity so i can ‘connect’ with my ‘friends’. Thanks again.
I am grateful for:
1. Oprah who has an amazing gift to bring forward amazing people and thats how i found you…through oprah’s super soul sunday. And i am devouring all your vidoes. I am enjoying your insight and light hearted attitude. You are really cool role model for new generation. You are showing that sprituality does not have to be serious and boring.
2. the writers and thought leaders who share their struggle and insight from which i am learning and growing
3. My ability to attract miracles in my life.
4. My hubby.
5. My family who adore me.
6. My amazing colleagues
7. My job which is giving me financial independence
8. My freedom to do whatever i wanna do and to be whatever i wanna be

The life I’m creating is only full of thanks and gratitude. I’m spoilt with opportunity everyday and I’m so excited now as I’m developing a greater sense of how it all unfolds-retrospect is amazing, foresight is incredible. I can’t wait to soak in more & more & more!! I can’t wait to spin out at all the things coming my way that I would have never expected.
Life. I’m all about it!

My gratitude list is as follows:
Granny- She’s rad & fully spiritual (and was so clever she made Mum who was smart enough to get with Pay.)
Blue Cheese- I know its not organic but please, its awesome!
Florence & the Machine- Can’t get enough, she is the voice of a god(dess).
Reef research- Let’s save that shit
The internet- I can follow my mentors &&& connect &&& learn.wahhht?
Finding deep thinkers- Sometimes its lonely in space
Flowers- they make my room that bit nicer, hell they make earth nicer.
Travel-has to be done, expand the mind
Humor- I dig funny shit
Contrast- You need it to see all the greatness just that bit brighter!!

The only way is up! Cheers xxx

2. I am grateful for being a good cook and being resourceful in the kitchen. Being able to feed those I love is really important to me.

4. Warm feet. So grateful that I can afford some decent shoes to keep my feet warm, it really makes all the difference.

5. This house. My house. Creaky floorboards that tell the story of 110 years of life in it. Cast iron fireplaces that you can light a fire in and great a cosy atmosphere. And hey, with Christmas coming my house is just perfect for all the decorations.

6. Speaking several languages and being able to make a living out of that.

7. Friends. Life would be so dull without all those very different peeps in my life.

8. Being able to take a break and fill my well a little.

This is so bang on!!!! I love how you say being grateful is the cure for our negativity. Awesome!

However, it is hard to remind yourself to be grateful on a daily basis. There is a website that sends you a daily reminder, reminding you to be grateful. For those that are struggling with this you might want to check it out. We all have so many things in our life that we should be grateful for.

This is the first time I’ve sat down to write a gratitude list and I am happy I did it.

I am grateful for that stuff too but that doesn’t impact my life like the people I choose to have in my life.

I have to be honest and say that I have kept a gratitude journal and make regular contributions to it, but there are times (and I’m knee-deep in one of them) where it feels like the walls are closing in on me. So I’m grateful that I can be honest about where I’m at (jobless, broke, on the verge of being evicted, no supportive partner or family, no forward movement with my calling as a photographer and writer (I deserve to make some semblance of an income with what I’m good at but it hasn’t happened yet), a dear friend who was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer this week, a terminally needy mother who I just can’t seem to find the emotional energy to support anymore.
I’m grateful that I have a roof over my head for the time being
I’m grateful for my two cats
I’m grateful a healthy body
In the absence of supportive friends, that’s about all I can muster right now.
I guess I could say I’m grateful that all of the hardships are temporary, but I’ve been in this fire for over three months and it’s killing me-

I guess I could say I’m grateful that all of the hardships are temporary, but I’ve been in this fire for over three months and it’s killing me-

Hola! Thank you Marie for this (and every) awesome vid! Love your work and am very grateful for the inspiration I receive, particularly as a speaker/presenter *:)

I once gave a speech on The Power of Gratitude called “The Ultimate Gift” – it’s probably my favourite topic (so accessible! ;)) and I thought people visiting here may enjoy.

While I can criticize the delivery (the speech was literally written on the day, could have been much better!) I think it has a great message – “It’s easy to feel grateful when things are great… but when it’s not so great, that’s when gratitude can be transformative”.

Instant Side Effects: I’ve been feeling weepy & sad for a few hours simply from hormones. And I incorrectly thought that “being hormonal” would keep me from feeling the lifting-effects of gratitude, but I was wrong! Writing those 10 Gratitudes did, in fact, lift my spirits and changed my chemistry a bit. Thank YOU! ;)

Marie, as usual, you hit the “sweet spot”. But I felt compelled to share something with you and your readers that helped me tremendously and that I return to time and again — it’s the grateful exercise penned by Melody Beattie in Make Miracles in 40 Days. You write down all of your feelings, both negative and postive. I can tell you that by the end of the 40 days you realize your feelings are just feelings and that your whole attitude has changed for the better. I can’t find my copy right now, but here is a summary of the entire process if folks are interested. Sorry for the length….but it’s worth the read!
====================================================

How to make all of your feelings OK… (Make Miracles In 40 Days)

by Rachel Rofe on June 1, 2012 (radiatingroyalty.com)

A friend and I recently started a great exercise from the book “40 Days Of Miracles”.

Basically, every day we write to each other with what we’re grateful for. That includes positive AND negative feelings, with the point of the exercise being to eventually realize that feelings are just feelings… not “negative” or “positive”.

I’ve had a great experience so far. The creator of the exercise, Melody Beattie, says that she’s seen amazing things happen too.

One of my favorite parts of the exercise is that it only takes 10 minutes a day and the payoff potential is huge.

To implement this yourself, here’s my best summation of how to do it:

1. Read the book Make Miracles In 40 Days. It’s very short, available on Kindle, and will give you a lot more perspective. I devoured the whole thing in less than 2 hours.

I’m doing my best to give you a summary, but you’ll have a much bigger vantage point if you read the book.

2. Make a list of goals you want to achieve in your life. You don’t need to share this with anyone, but just get clarity on some of the things you’re wanting to create.

As you do this 40 Day exercise, the premise is that miracles will start happening for you and things will start getting checked off your goal list.

Your goal list can be on whatever you want, but it’s also recommended to mention releasing resentment and/or forgiving certain people in your life that you haven’t been able to do so with yet.

3. You’ll need a partner for this.

Here are partner criteria:
■This should be someone you’re not too close with (you’re going to need to feel safe to be VERY vulnerable).
■You and your partner must commit to NOT being judgmental (more on this in a minute).
■You and your partner need to commit to doing this for 40 days. You can work out if you want to do weekends or not (I personally do – I like the routine of it). If you cannot commit, please don’t waste the other person’s time.

The partner selection process is crucial. If you don’t feel safe with your partner, this whole exercise is worthless.

4. Every day, for 10 minutes a day, list out the things you’re grateful for. The author recommends writing the list within 30 minutes of waking up, but it’s not essential.

My friend and I do this via email and that’s what I recommend.

Start out your list with:

Today I’m grateful for:

…and then list things.

As you list each item, breathe into each of the feelings that come up and really allow yourself to feel them (especially the negative emotions).

Again – this doesn’t need to be for only positive things. You should also list any emotions you’re carrying around that you don’t like, think are bad or wrong to feel, are resisting, pretending aren’t there, etc.

Some examples of things you can feel gratitude on are:

“I feel grateful for feeling extremely angry at my best friend who stood me up last night.”

“I feel grateful for hating my boss with the fire of a thousand suns. I feel grateful for finding him to be a complete waste of life, useless, and only in his position because he’s a family friend.”

“I feel grateful for feeling shame around my weight. I feel grateful for feeling absolutely disgusting and mortified at the idea of someone seeing me naked.”

If something comes up and you want to create another list that same day, feel free.

4b. You’re going to need to allow yourself to be vulnerable. It’s not easy to admit a lot of these things, but feeling them is the first step to releasing them.

As my friend Ariana Hall says, “The insides want to get outside.” And if you let yourself feel what you don’t want to feel, it will help those feelings move through your body and release.

Another note on this – Annie Lalla, someone I find brilliant, mentions that a lot of people try to be “happy”. Happiness is fleeting. You can’t feel happy all the time. She suggests that instead of trying to feel happy, optimize for feeling ALIVE. Alive can include anger, frustration, shame, whatever… but it’s always a lot better than numb.

Also – did you know that if you allow yourself to fully feel an emotion, it processes through your body in no longer than 10 minutes? That’s a scientific fact.

Let yourself to feel through these emotions so that they don’t stay stuck in you and you find yourself swirling in them years later.

4c. In the beginning of this exercise with your partner, it’ll feel tough to go mega vulnerable first.

If something is TOO personal, you don’t need to say it. That’s totally fine.

But I recommend you dig deep and go a little bit outside of your comfort zone. By you getting vulnerable first, that will allow your partner to feel more comfortable, which will allow you to both get a LOT more from the exercise.

The exercise isn’t meant to be easy. It’s meant to help you GROW. (But I promise it does get easier in time.)

5. You are never, ever, ever allowed to comment on the other person’s list unless they explicitly ask you to.

You also may not pass judgment or show judgment in any way, shape, or form.

In the book, Melody (the author) mentions how her partner was talking about eating disorders and other wildly unhealthy things. Melody never made a comment. You need to let your partner have a safe space to release their darkest feelings. You need to trust them to sort them out unless they explicitly ask for help.

Your role as partner is to share your gratitude and then also be a SAFE SPACE FOR THE OTHER PERSON TO SHARE – nothing else.

I can’t emphasize that enough.

The top 10 things I am thankful for:
1: I am thankful that God sent down His son to save us of our sins because I have no idea were we would be, because He is the way, the truth, and the life.
2: That God has protected my family and I in the most craziest of situations.
3. I am thankful God provided a way for me to go to college.
4. I am thankful that the Holy Spirit is leading my little brother to the Son and the Father.
5. I am thankful that one day God will heal my mom.
6. I am thankful that I got to meet an amazing friend that helps to lead me in the right direction.
7. I am thankful that God put somebody in my mom’s life to love her and care for her in a healthy, respectable relationship.
8. I am thankful that God will provide His holy spirit to my older brother so that we may begin to make amends.
9. I am thankful that God only gives us what He know’s we can handle, we might bend but He won’t let us break!
10. I am thankful that we live in a country that allows us to share our views, but I do pray not only for our country but for all nations that God will begin to peal the scales from everyone’s eyes. I don’t think it’s right that some people judge others religion, because Jesus said we are not to cast judgment upon others.

Hi Marie,

GREAT job on Oprah!!! I watched it with my mom when I was at her house for the holiday and it was a wonderful way to connect with her on a spiritual level (which is pretty rare for us:)

So here goes my gratitude list: (1) my breath and ability to link into the present moment whenever I need to; (2) my body (even with all its challenges, it teaches me so much about myself); (3) my family, biological and spiritual; (4) my amazing boyfriend who supports me in all I do and challenges me to grow each day; (5) my job and boss (after working with you for a short time, I manifested an amazing job that is an even better fit for me!); (6) my friends who are truly incredible people that inspire me; (7) dogs (I am dogsitting in St. Augustine right now for two of the cutest souls on earth; (8) Abraham-Hicks and the Center for Spiritual Living-Asheville for feeding my soul; (9) Asheville, NC- my true home; and (10) you and all the other incredible people out there walking the walk and reminding me to do it as well.

Love you, girl!

I have a daily practice of gratitude, so I can attest that it can transform your life. In the moment, the first 10 things I can think of being grateful for include:
1) Attracting awesome people into my life – friends, clients, everyone. I have a knack and I love it.
2) Getting that oil stain out of my favorite sweatshirt after putting it through the dryer. Phew!
3) My Toastmasters clubs. My home club is da bomb and the new club I’m mentoring is making me so proud.
4) Having a crush. I don’t know if it will go anywhere, but its a nice warm fuzzy feeling to have someone to think about and smile.
5) That strange dream I had Thanksgiving morning in which my deceased dog told me how much she appreciated what I did for her and that it was OK to get another pet
6) Copious opportunities to express my creativity
7) Chocolate
8) A growing feeling of peace
9) Money flowing in

Hi Marie,

What a wonderful way to start my Monday morning! So glad I waited to watch this vid)

1. the company of my pussy cat (snuggled between my legs right now)
2. air-conditioning (thank you God! 35 degrees celsius outside!)
3. access to technology to connect, learn, run my business and be inspired.
4. the utterly comfortable, quiet and functional workspace I’m in.
5. the blender in the kitchen that awaits me for my green smoothie to fuel my day
6. sleeping really well last night.
7. internal peace despite all there is to do today – the growing sense of trust that all will be done in perfect time.
8. the way my husband listens to me and loves me.
9. the relaxed and open sensations in my body.
10. the energy and focus I feel right now.

After this lil gratitude reminder I’m feeling spacious, grounded, blessed and alive…. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

A great twist on gratitude – that it kills negative thoughts etc. I am a great proponent of gratitude, but I also have concerns that if we are grateful and don’t at least look at what we’re really feeling first, that we can end up using gratitude to stuff genuine feelings of frustration, rejection, disappointment. When we OWN these feelings and move through them they can lead to a genuine action to resolve whatever issues there are in our lives. Rather than cover them up with gratitude. I’m not suggesting wallowing, just being honest with ourselves about how we feel BEFORE we move into gratitude.

I wrote an article to explain what I mean: http://lifecoachonthego.com/why-im-sick-of-gratitude-and-how-it-may-actually-be-bad-for-you/

And I do believe in the cultivation of gratitude! Here are my 10 things I am grateful for:
1) My husband, cat and dog
2) Family and friends
3) Living in the Western World with all our comforts
4) The ability to read and learn
5) My home and the land we live on
6) The amazing abundance and mystery of nature
7) My health
8) My career – helping people
9) Chocolate!
10) Freedom of speech!

Thanks for the awesome episode of MarieTV. I can see how you are an awesome inspiration to many females (as seen below by all the awesome female commentors). Love your work!

Here is my gratitude list:

– My health: working hard to keep this body of mine healthy. With a health condition, it’s a lot easier for me to accept “I’m different but I’m freaking awesome” :)

– The continual support and relationship I have with my parents (despite the fact they are divorced) :)

– Being a positive role model for my younger brothers and leading the way :)

– Having awesome dogs that keep me company when I’m working on what I love :)

– I’m grateful for making a difference to the lives of parents, teachers and students in 2012 :) Lots more fun to come

– I’m grateful that I believe in my own gifts, ability and belief I have to change the world. :)

– I’m grateful that I live in such an amazing country – Australia. I know so many people would die just to live here :)

– I’m grateful for all the relationships and teachers of life I have come across so far in my life. They have played a massive role in shaping me into the person I am today. :)

– I’m grateful for waking up every morning :)

I already did the gratitude exercise whenever I start complaining or I feel down or I simply don’t have anything else to do. And it rocks! I love it, because it puts me in the state of mind that allows in the creativity, positive thinking and all the other beautiful things that I want.

The 10 things I want to thank for every day:
1. My partner – the best guy on the planet.
2. My family that supports me and loves me everywhere I go.
3. My friends that are all fun to be around and who all have their own dreams to pursue and who inspire me.
4. All the spiritual and self-development teachers I had the chance to learn from during my life (including you, Marie – I’m so thankful that I discovered your network, because it helped me amazingly many times).
5. Living in a free country, with endless opportunities that only wait for me to keep moving.
6. My good state of health (because I experienced the disease and I know how terrible it can be – so for returning to the state of physiological balance I’m absolutely grateful).
7. The chance I had during last half a year to do a semester of my studies abroad – it is an enriching experience and it allowed me to meet so many wonderful people from all over the world.
8. My education – that I can study whatever I want and then choose whatever job will make me happy.
9. The nature – I’m grateful for the nature that keeps me tuned with my inner life.
10. My talents for languages, for literature and writing (I’m not saying I’m Shakespeare, but I’m greateful for this little spark I have that I can develop into a flame with regular, honest work).

And if I could add one additional thing I’m grateful for is that I – being 21 years old – am already on my way to a successful life – I’m grateful that I discovered all the joy and wisdom of self-development, self-management, coaching and spirituality so early.
