I am Grateful for…

The following gratitude stems supplement the Gratitude and Appreciation Meditation (updated here at the post below). I created both the meditation and the gratitude stems as part of my collaborations at PeacefulDay.com, where I lead their program for Meditation Mondays.

As the meditation guide within PeacefulDay.com’s meditative oasis and peace playground, I share (just in time for the US Thanksgiving holiday) a five-minute time out for cultivating gratitude and appreciation.

The YouTube video of the Gratitude and Appreciation Meditation is here.

Gratitude Stems

When you finish listening to the gratitude/appreciation meditation, take some time to fill in these sentences. Fill a page. OR more. Do it daily. Consciously meditate on and write — filling the blank spaces….


You can copy and paste these gratitude stems into your own Peaceful Day Journal to do this powerful practice.

And/or you are welcome to leave your comments here!
