The Power of Gratitude
Written by Randi Fine
Narcissistic Abuse Awareness and Guidance with Randi Fine
Do you realize the immense power that comes from a simple practice of gratitude?
Gratitude and appreciation for what you have occupies your mind with positivity. Focusing on what you lack fills your mind with negativity that breeds thoughts of bitterness, jealousy, and resentment. Recognizing the many gifts and blessings, large and small, that life brings to you attracts more of the same.
Some say that they are grateful yet find themselves experiencing negative thoughts when life doesn’t go the way they expect it to. Some say they have little to be grateful for yet truly have an abundance. Good and bad things happen in life every day. What outlook we choose to focus on is entirely up to us.
When we focus on what we lack, we create blockages and limitations. We become imprisoned by our negative energy. As a result, we attract what we think, negativity, while repelling the very things we desire.
Randi Fine is the author of the groundbreaking book Close Encounters of the Worst Kind: The Narcissistic Abuse Survivor’s Guide to Healing, the most comprehensive, most well researched, and most up-to-date book on this subject.
