If you are looking to cultivate gratitude, you must first make space to look inward.
To acknowledge the amazing heart space that you have, all the things that you do on a constant basis, and, most importantly, who you are.
When you can be grateful for your very being, for what is inside, this shifts your whole experience of outward gratitude.
You see your own gifts and strengths reflected back to you through others.
You forgive yourself for your mistakes.
Take time to be grateful for you.
Be as grateful for what's inside as you are for the blessings surrounding you.
You deserve it.
