Every time you flex your gratitude muscle it reprograms your mind to see your blessings. This helps you recognize the gifts and opportunities surrounding you. Practicing gratitude reorients your mind toward happiness and success and connection…and then, almost as if by magic, your life starts working in wonderful ways. Knowing all that…
