The “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving It” quote made me think of how gratitude feels to me. It feels like a bubble about to burst or a welling up of a warm, wonderful feeling that engulfs you inside and out that, just has to spill forth. So if one was to keep that to himself and not share it or express the wonderful gratitude they feel inside, the rest of the world would be missing the love it held.

One of the things that I have been made aware of is that the more you focus on something the more it will be drawn to you. So it would only make sense to me that focusing on and being more aware of the times that we are grateful and how often we feel genuinely grateful would bring more of that feeling into our lives also.
To me being thankful and being grateful are pretty much the same thing. If I had to clarify a difference I would say that to me being grateful is taking being thankful just a step further and with a deeper appreciation for something.

Awesome observations Cheryl! Once again, do you notice how we draw attention to the difference between breadth and depth in each step of our journey? We begin at the surface. We dive as deep as you wish to dive based on levels of comfort, capacity and care. Sometimes we swim so deep so quickly, we didn’t notice we grew gills – right?

Fascinating how deep rewiring happens while floating on the surface – ehh? (Did any of this make any sense?)
