How to start your own Gratitude practiceย 

I have almost finished my fave gratitude journal so was inspired to write this post.

My Kikki K gratitude journal almost full I love the gold edging ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

Do you practice gratitude?

I guess I was first introduced to it via The Secret back in 2006. Which talks about being thankful for what you have now & talking in a present tense about future desires you wish to manifest.

Getting the gratitude journal from Kikki K helped me to make it a practice.

The journal has 3 spaces for each day. Here you write down three things you are grateful for. I often use up more than the three spaces depending how inspired I am.

A great tip from Marie Forleo was to really build out your gratitudes – write very detailed & specific descriptions for each grateful. Especially if it is something you are looking to bring into being – manifest.

Practicing gratitude brings more things to be grateful for into your life.

It’s a favourite practice of many well known figures – Oprah, Tony Robbins, Lewis Howes, Danielle LaPorte, Marie Forleo to name a few.
