Today’s message is one that’s timely for a busy season of life. It’s a reminder of the importance of an attitude of gratitude even when life feels hectic.

Let’s not forget about keeping our attitude set on what’s real and right for us, what serves us well, and the desires of our hearts.

An attitude of gratitude begins with tapping into the great that’s within you.

To truly be grateful, we must acknowledge our greatness.

And the fact that WE’RE FULL OF IT!

Full of great!

In order to allow your gratitude to shine, you must acknowledge the greatness that’s within you.

If we acknowledge ourselves not as half full or empty, but as FULL OF GREAT…it’s easy to be grateful.

Are you waiting for someone to give you something for you to be grateful?

Are you waiting for someone, or yourself, to change so you can be grateful?

Are you waiting, for whatever reason, to be grateful?


Are you simply allowing yourself — powerfully — to acknowledge the greatness within you…and that you’re already FULL?

If you’re full, you don’t NEED anymore.

Fullness. Joy. Satisfaction. Contentment. All things GREAT.

If you are full of GREAT and GREATNESS, we lack for no great or good thing.

You can have what you desire IN your greatness.

When you acknowledge that there’s no lack or need. There’s nothing you need to wait for.

Simply acknowledging your greatness will put you in an incredible attitude of gratitude.


It’ll fill up your attitude, and allow you to fill others as well.

When we do, everybody benefits.

I’m thinking of you, and am thankful for you!!

I love and appreciate you!!
