Focus on someone for whom up until now; you have not been that grateful. For your 5 minutes today, breathe deeply, close your eyes, center yourself and send gratitude to one person who you have resented in the past. This is not an exercise in rehashing the past or justifying your actions or even thinking about the past. Rather it is a cheerful, heartfelt sending of joy to that one who you know needs it from you. If you feel so moved, you can print the message below and keep it with you today, or send it to the person in your gratefulness meditation.
I love you, I appreciate you, and I am grateful for your presence in my life.
“The best way to cheer yourself up is to cheer someone else up.” ~ Mark Twain
