Gratitude is something that I’ve been practicing for the better part of my life. A process called The Gratitude Experience is also something that we teach our clients.

I’ve found that gratitude is deeply important to me both in my business, personally, and also in my faith life. The practice of gratitude on a daily basis is something I started as a young child not even knowing what it was called then. I realized early on that gratitude could carry me through the most difficult situations and had great value in creating more of what I wanted out of life.

The things that we are grateful for grow as we become more aware of them, so that’s why we talk and teach about The Gratitude Experience. Here is a little simple formula that I follow and want to share with you so that you can practice gratitude too.
