Gratitude is the key to abundance
Hey, my wonderful, wonderful friends – how are you today?
After beginning my read of Emma Mumford’s Positively Wealthy 33 Day Challenge book, & filling out my own gratitude journal, I felt inspired to share an A – Z of gratitude post here on the blog today, to raise my vibrations, add more positivity and joy to the world, and to hopefully inspire you to connect to your gratitude, give thanks, and feel the love in your life.
The more we practice gratitude, the happier we will be – any situation you are in, when you see it with the eyes of gratitude, or when you switch your thinking from complaining to giving thanks, you will feel so much better, and that in itself is a wonderful thing, to be able to choose higher vibe emotions, and know that when you are ready, you can bring yourself back to a place of gratitude.
Gratitude will shift your mood in the rising, when you start your day by giving thanks for all your blessings, be it the bed you sleep in, the wonderful people you get to see today, or the fact that you are alive!
Gratitude will help you when you’re feeling down, as of course, it’s totally okay to feel down, it’s a part of life and your feelings are always valid, however, when you’re ready to bring yourself back to feeling good again, rather than waiting on something to come along and bring you joy, you can find it within you already, by being grateful for all that you already have, the beautiful future you have to look forward to, this moment in the present and of course, so much more.
The more you look for the good, the more good you’ll find, and when you begin to practice gratitude, you will realise how beautiful this life of yours really is, and of course, the Universe and your Spirit Family, The Divine, will respond to your gratitude. It’s the Law Of Attraction, the more you give thanks, the more you will have to be thankful for, the more blessings will flow your way. With your gratitude, and the love in your heart, you will manifest magick.
So I’m going to go through the alphabet and give my thanks for something that begins with each letter from A – Z, this is so fun as it brings me the opportunity to give thanks for everything, being that there’s plenty of different things for me to give thanks for going from A – Z. I hope this list gives you some inspiration too on what you have to be thankful for, and I hope afterwards, you feel inspired to write your own A – Z of gratitude to raise your vibrations and live your happiest, healthiest life.
A – Apps – I am thankful for the wonderful apps I have on my phone – the fact that I have a phone which I can download apps on, so I can learn, grow, connect and have fun. A couple of my favourite apps are Mimi Method*affiliate link & DuoLingo!

E – Earth. – This world that’s our home, that provides for us everyday without ever asking for anything in return, that shows up for us every single day, the sun which shines, the ground which houses us – the beauty we see in all nature – the plants, the flowers, the snow, everything. Earth is a beauty, which I am so thankful for and I hope to honour this gratitude everyday, by doing my best for Earth, like Earth does for us.

T – There’s a lot I could say for T, first of all, Taylor Swift, hello, love her so much and I am so thankful for her and her music, honestly, I was so excited when she released Folklore and Evermore, what a GIFT. I also want to say T for Texture. I was running my hands through my dreamcatcher and it made me think how lucky I am to be able to feel the different textures there are in this world, there’s so much variety, the softness of a jacket, running my hands through my dreamcatcher, the softness of my moisturised and oiled legs, is that even texture or touch? I don’t even know anymore, but I do know that I am grateful for those feelings and to be able to experience those things. Thank you thank you thank you!
U – Upcycling – How cool. I am only recently learning about Upcycling after discovering a friend who sells upcycled glasses – I’m going to be purchasing one soon as a gift and I think it would make the perfect vase. Upcycling is such a positive thing, to limit waste, and to turn something that otherwise may have been thrown away into something really special, it’s also great for gifting as well as crafting, if you’re at home and looking for something fun to do, you could Upcycle something!!! I’m not an expert on the matter by all means but I do think Upcycling sounds super fun and crafty, it’s definitely something I would like to try soon. You can check out my friends Upcycled glass page here.
V – Vision. I am thankful for my vision, in all ways. The fact that I am able to see, beautiful views, as I sit here and write this I am thinking about the dreamy view from my breakfast’s in Tuscany, oh so glorious. I am thankful to be able to visualise, which is a powerful and successful manifesting technique, and I am so thankful for my vision board which brings me joy every time I see it, I’ve just updated it and it makes me so happy, excited and thankful. I know my visions will manifest, or something better, for the highest good of all, in Divine Timing. Thank you thank you thank you!
W – Water. Oh water, I am so thankful for the beautiful benefits of water. How it’s cleansing, healing, meditative if you use showering as a form of meditation, to cleanse away what no longer serves, and of course, showering / bathing in general. Water cleanses us both physically and Spiritually and of course, I am so thankful for drinking water, which is so good for us. Every time I drink water, I aim to bless it with my thanks, knowing all the good it’s doing for me. Thank you thank you thank you water.
X – Xandria… oh my goodness, I don’t think I even knew Xandria when I first did my A – Z of gratitude but giving my thanks to Xandria is perfect here. Xandria is one of the sweetest ladies you could ever hope to know, she’s funny, chill, and oh so inspiringly lovely that she’s a literal ray of sunshine, and just thinking about her inspires me to share more love and be more sunshine. Thank you darling Xandria – you are a blessing!!!
Y – You. I actually had to google ‘things that begin with Y’ to find my inspiration for this one, see, one of the many reasons I am thankful for the internet. I am so thankful to YOU for being here, as it means that you are reading my blog, engaging with my content and hopefully feeling inspired to write your own gratitude list and raise your vibrations too. You are here for a beautiful reason, and I am so thankful to You, for being the very best version of yourself, and being here with me on this journey. So much love!
Z – Zen feelings – Oh guys, I really had to google words that begin with Z for this one too, but truthfully, Zen feelings are something to be so thankful for, in fact, that peace is something I hope to give thanks for every single day, one thing I’m focusing on this year is being present and manifesting / creating positive mental health on a consistent basis in my life, and it’s truthfully one of the best feelings when you’re at peace in the moment, just letting life flow blissfully. The feeling of Zen is definitely something to be thankful for! Thank you thank you thank you!

Gratitude is magick.
