Interview with Sharon Saraga Walters on the power and purpose of Gratitude!
Gratitude is a powerful tool.
It can change your moment, your experience, your job, your love, your friendships, your life! And it does this at your command! Like a beautiful blossom opening to receive, you'll see your life unfold! That doesn't mean it's 'easy' or overnight. It's a process, a practice, a workout you must commit to daily, and it will change your thinking and change your life.
We've designed several tools to help get you there. With as little as five minutes a day of intentional awareness, your Gratitude practice will become ingrained in every hour of your day. With The 28 Day Gratitude Workout book or course you can practice different exercises daily, and strengthen your gratitude muscle.
Thursday's Note is for anyone wishing to experience more Gratitude. This book provides one full year of pausing each week to connect or reconnect with someone in your life through a heartfelt Thank You Note. This experience can radically change your relationships, mend strained connections and fill you with a renewed sense of belonging to a beautiful and vast world.
For those looking to amp up your gratitude practice, Graticise™ 365 keeps you going all year long, with results that will expand your gratitude muscle!
Just as you see results when you workout physically, you will see results how practicing these daily exercises lead you to experience some truly amazing, life-changing results.
