Gratitude and Relationships

Relationships are huge. Unless you’re an android or some kind of robot, your connection to others is a major contributing factor to the quality of life you have as a thinking, feeling “being.”

While there are so many different types of relationships, the foundation of all relationships is the same. It always begins and ends with you.

What you contribute to a relationship is what you will get out of it. If you give of yourself, solely because you WANT to – not because you expect something in return, then your relationships will thrive. How is this possible?

The Law of Attraction is what makes all of this possible and true. The Law says that what you give, you receive. If you are giving negativity, you will receive life results that are in line with what you have been thinking and feeling. If you are giving positivity, you will receive life results that are in line with what you have been thinking and feeling.

It is important to note that blaming others for their roles in your various relationships is fleeting and will not produce the relationship you desire. To gain the relationship circumstances that you desire, YOU need to think, feel and administer them, FIRST.

I hear people complain all the time about how this relationship and that relationship aren’t working. With one simple question, “And what are you doing about that?” the responsibility of that person’s participation in the relationship in question is immediately deflected to the actions or lack of actions from the other person or persons involved.

To blame others is to focus on and exist in negativity, which can and will only produce more of that. Well, he/she is so mean to me; he’s/she’s power-hungry and he/she doesn’t care about anyone but himself/herself. Sadly, I hear this too often. Look at that statement. “He’s/She’s this” and “he’s/she’s that” and he/she, he/she, he/she; nothing about “me” or “I.”

And what are you doing about that? “I don’t know – I guess I’ll have to find a new job (or new relationship).”

So instead of taking responsibility for one’s own role in a toxic relationship, they think they just need to be removed from that relationship. Some of you may agree with that thinking, but I have to tell you – I have seen too many times where the same negativity is spouted from the same mouths of the same people who keep changing relationships only to find that they keep encountering these same “awful people who thrive on being awful to everyone else.”

Are there controlling people out there who like to see their subordinates squirm? Absolutely! However, it is completely and solely up to you to decide if you are going to tolerate the relationship or if you are going to look within to ensure that you don’t go without.

This and the next few posts are all about relationships; the different types of relationships we deal with and how, no matter what type of relationship you may have an issue with, it all begins and ends with you. You are about to discover the true magic that exists when you understand the power of your involvement in any and every relationship you will ever have. See you next time!

Is Global Unity Possible through Gratitude?

Gratitude Word Web


Happy Tuesday! Joyeux mardi! Feliz martes! Our Global Gratitude Group is just as much a cause as it is an organization. It is the organization of people who have a collective interest in expressing gratitude and appreciation for their lives. The global feelings of belonging and inclusion are vital to the universality of giving thanks.

Right now, exactly where you are, just look up from your device and scan the area you’re in for things you are grateful for. To yourself, say I am grateful for ___________ over and over until you run out of things to appreciate or until your attention diverts. If our global gratitude efforts are going to spread, we’ve got to use social media to get it out there! Did you “Like” our group on Facebook yet? Are you following The Gratitude Guru on Twitter? How about Instagram? The following is a short list we have put together stating why gratitude is universal and how the entire world can get behind our group effort.

  • Every human being at some point has felt grateful
  • When we feel grateful, our hearts are full and overflowing with good emotions
  • Every language across the world has an expression for “thank you”
  • Gratitude is an emotion that, when magnified, can cause one to feel so indebted to whom they are thankful that they will spend endless amounts of time and money trying to either repay the gesture for which they are grateful or to pay it forward
  • At such a crucial time in the existence of our world, where there is terrorism and the spreading of hatred everywhere, where people are getting more and more out of control because it has become more and more difficult to keep them controlled – gratitude can change it all.
  • Gratitude changes everything
  • One does not have to be religious to live in gratitude
  • One does not have to be a particular race or ethnicity to live in gratitude
  • Everyone can live in gratitude and can create ultimate lives!
  • Gratitude is the one cause that everyone on the planet can get behind without negating their other causes and communal efforts
  • Everything in the world can go on just as people want it to – it would just be better.
  • Gratitude is a lifestyle.
  • Imagine a world without so much hatred, without hate being rewarded with fame and acknowledgement – instead, imagine a world that thrives on and rewards people for the positive things they do and say, all based in gratitude.
  • Gratitude is the uniting global effort because it affects everyone and everything!


Together, we can give thanks and change the world!
