Gratitude Rocks

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow

The basic idea of a gratitude rock or gratitude stone, is simple. You carry it with you, typically in your pocket or purse. Whenever you touch it, you give thanks for something right at that moment. No matter whether you are stuck in traffic, sitting at your desk at work or school, or anywhere else you might be, simply give thanks for something good in your life at that moment.

You can hold your Gratitude Rock in your hand and think about the people in your life and the incredible experiences you've had as a result of knowing them. When you do this on a consistent basis and start to associate the power of this experience and the feeling of gratitude, you are creating a very formidable base from which everything else will grow.

It doesn't have to be any fancy engraved stone, just a simple stone that catches your eye on a walk through the park will do nicely. You can even set aside a place in your garden for these stones, keep an eye out for stones that strike your fancy and place them in your gratitude garden and watch to see how it grows!
