How I use gratitude to stay motivated
I love this quote: “You can’t be angry and grateful at the same time.” — Kenn Franklin
My favorite strategy to reach instant gratitude is to practice emotional forgiveness — replacing hurt feelings with empathy and a desire to give an altruistic gift of forgiveness.
That makes me feel grateful to myself because I admire myself for being the bigger person.
So when I later hold on to that forgiveness and remember my commitment to forgive, I can feel grateful easily.
Thanks Kenn for reminding me that gratitude is a great way to get motivated!
