"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you love to do, in order to have what you want." -- Margaret Young

The formula for success is Be, Do, Have. If we seek abundance, we must be abundant in spirit. We can begin to cultivate spiritual wealth by opening our hearts in gratitude.

Start a gratitude journal today. Each evening, write down at least 5 things for which you are grateful. This simple tool will help you open your eyes to the abundance of your world right now.

"Who does not thank for little will not thank for much." -- Estonian proverb

This reminds me that Shane, the girls and I used to take a moment at dinner to each say at least one thing for which we were thankful, and another every night at bedtime to share what we liked best about that day. I am going to start that again.

The gratitude journal sounds interesting, but I think that if I try to keep one, I'll be reaching for stuff to write every day. Sad, no?

I guess that's the point though. You think it would be hard (or easy) and when you actually do it, you realize how you really think about your life.

Maybe...I don't know. I can't remember, but I think I used to keep one. The fact that I can't remember says something too. :-p
