    I need to shift my negative thoughts or mindsets to positive. I need to accept that i am worthy of all things good in this world. If i continue to put my best foot forward and live life with a positive mindset, continuing to be thankful for what i have. Things will all fall into place!

    I would like to adjust this question, I do not believe I need to shift but more so focus on something. My main focus will be PEACE and taking my time with things. I previously would apply a lot of pressure on myself and be very compassionate to others. I am going to be humble and positive.

    Because of this website, I am much more aware of the importance of gratitude. No shifting needed!

    For over two years now, I’ve been going through a spiritual crisis similar to one I had from April 2010-July 2012. One hindrance to gratitude, for me, is my tendency to focus on the fact that I’m going through a spiritual crisis. Instead, however, I can shift to focus on how resilient I am during this crisis compared to the earlier one. I don’t feel nearly as depressed or full of despair this time, and I have more optimism about the future. Plus, I’m not emotionally numb. All of these are signs that I have much more resilience than I did before, and that is something for me to focus on.

    Deal with the anxiety that has come up to the surface. Address my thoughts, allow to feel them but then subside them with self loving and kindness. Remembering that I am worthy, I am lovable and I can cope because my real me can comfort my inner child who is screaming at me

    I need to shift away from focusing on the anxiety I feel about what I DON’T have, in order to feel more gratitude for the amazing life I already DO have.

    Oh gosh, what a timely invitation as I’m feeling. a tad irritated with a certain someone. My mood needs to lift towards living the great fullness of this precious day! It is a choice – I’m on it!

    Do I need to shift today, in order to feel grateful? Maybe not. What do I need to shift today, in order to feel grateful about something I’m not currently feeling grateful for, or about? Maybe so.

    I don’t know that I need to shift anything in order to feel grateful. That does not mean I don’t need to shift some attitudes or behaviors in order to be my better self.

    I need to shift from focusing on imposter syndrome and focus on growth and exploration. Every day, I’m learning something new. Though it’s exciting, feelings of inferiority, fraudulence, and not being good enough does come in a while. Those low vibration feelings restrict my feeling excited about advancing my career to new heights.

    Probably not today, but on days that seem challenging, I think it would help me to remember this is only one day, and when they are stacked up against all the good days, that is reason enough to be grateful.
    It does make me wonder how this day will be, considering I just woke up a little while ago… start with this question? Nope.
    I am just grateful for this day, and I can handle what happens because I am not alone in it….

    To feel more grateful today, I need to shift discouragement in my own abilities and impatience with my own imperfections. These disappointments in myself cloud perceptions of what is around me that is wonderful.

    In order to feel grateful I need to shift my focus. Instead of noticing the things I don’t have I will focus on the things I have.

    Shifting perspective helps me to remember that all is gift, helps me. Especially when it removes or shifts the “I” from the landscape!
    Why that paradigm doesn’t stick in my internal view is a mystery to me, but this website helps me refocus.

    Every morning I remind myself of the importance to be willing. When egoic longing is permeating every fiber of my being, I do my best to remember that I am a microcosm of the Universe. When I can do that, my longing becomes belonging. I gain a grateful perspective. I’m part of something that is filled with potential. I’m wanted and needed and called to embody the hope that willingness and gratefulness bring into every situation.

    Fear. I don’t normally dwell in it, but my big cheese exam is today. I’ve been on edge for the past week as this day has drawn closer, and now here we are. So I will work for a little while later this morning and make sure my team is good, then I will hide myself in the conference room for some final studying before the big test at 1pm. I have learned so much, so I have lots I can share with my team and our customers. I’m grateful for this opportunity, and grateful this day is finally here. Onward!

      And I’m another “Cheesehead” as they call people in Wisconsin – and I join Christine in wishing you well on the exam, Sunnipatti! With two Cheeseheads in your corner (and all your studying and prep!) you’ll do GREAT! Or should I say GRATE?! 🙂

    I sense a judgement in today’s question. By my read it assumes that we, the reader, are not grateful. However, I am grateful for my ability to move beyond a literal interpretation!

    I have not been mindful these last few days. So that is not helpful. Stress management tools have not been used either, and the toll is evident in my attitude, alas. I know what to do and simply need the will to take the steps. Gratitude as a posture brings the willingness. Thanks for the reminder.

    An attitude of gratitude for this precious human life is an opportunity to open up and let go.
    As far as shifting goes I would pay attention to what my mind is getting up to in the present moment and let go with gratitude.

    Nothing, I woke up grateful. This question gives me an odd feeling. Maybe a language problem again.

      Yes, Christine! The first question should be, “Do I need to shift something today, in order to feel grateful?” If the answer is “Yes,” then one could ask, “What do I need to shift today, in order to feel grateful?” 🍀

      Well, Christine, I am a native English speaker, and I felt the same as you did. I decided to have a little “fun” with the question instead.

      Besides, I’d say that you, Christine, could write the book on gratefulness within this community.

        I don ‘t know what to say, Kevin. You make me blush 😊 But I think my grateful feeling comes from a heart that is at peace. I can accept “situations”, knowing that all comes from God. All is good. It is not easy, but it is.
        Besides, and your book? 🤗
