The more women I talk to, the more I realize what a big player fear is in our lives. It can stop us from becoming who we were meant to be. It can stop us from serving and contributing like we were intended to. It can compromise our happiness and ability to love. Propelling ourselves into ACTion disarms fear, so can anything that opens the heart. Gratitude is one of those things…it’s very difficult to be fearful when we are grateful.
When I list all the things I’m grateful for I can feel a softening and an opening of the heart. Gratitude puts fears to rest, turns chaos to order and confusion to clarity.
reACTION [to change in the response to stimulus]: Day 27 – Gratitude
If you feel fear advancing send in the gratitude!
For acute situations list everything you are grateful for. Aim to create a list of list 50 or 100…impose a time limit of say 5 or 10 minutes our mind loves a playful challenge!
For daily maintenance, increased happiness and fear control list 3 grateful for’s every morning.

Even 5 years later, these words assist in normalizing/ resetting “fear”
Gratitude is tried and true and so simple. Sometimes we let ourselves down by forgetting to practice or searching for a ‘complex’ solution. When my life goes sideways its usually because I’ve gotten lazy and gratitude has become hit and miss. I climb back on board and course correction is immediate.
