Grounding in Gratitude

August 4, 2020

People talk about gratitude a lot, so much so that I think we get desensitized to it sometimes. But there is a reason that so many people are talking about it. It’s because gratitude is life-altering. From the time I was just an itty bitty baby, my Dads ingrained in me a sense of what it means to be grateful.

I was definitely spoiled as a child, and really, as an adult, I am, too. But my parents never bestowed anything upon me without making sure that I had an understanding that I should be grateful and why. Gratitude was a necessity in our household. I learned to be grateful for the tiniest things and the largest things and all the stuff that falls in-between. At night my Daddy would help me say my prayers and teach me to methodically remind myself of what I had to be grateful for.

Gratitude is a means of grounding yourself, especially in the crazy times we are living in now. I give out gratitude like candy. I would so much rather everyone know how grateful I am for them instead of hoping they know or being worried that it makes me seem silly that I say it so often. Connecting to gratitude is to connect to something bigger than you and me.

Happy day friends, I love you so much and I am very grateful for you. XOXOX, CAMDW

PS Happy Anniversary Baba. I love you to the sun and the moon and back and then some. Here is to many, many more.

  • I’m so grateful for you both every single minute of every single day!!!! You are our treasure and our greatest gift!!! Happy Anniversary my loves!!!

  • I need to get back into doing a daily gratitude thing. One year I had a jar. I wrote down just one thing a day and put it on a small piece of paper and put it in the jar. The idea was to start and finish on New years day. I am not sure I finished a year but when I decided to stop, I did enjoy reading all of them and having those reminders. I loved the video your dad posted today of the Newport Beach wedding and so honored to have shared that with you and Domi. Looking forward to some Anne and Chelsea time this month. We need to paint rocks! xoxoxo
