We talk a lot around here about manifesting our goals and dreams, attracting abundance and success, and cultivating more love and goodness in our lives.
It is just as important to practice gratitude for what already is. For the love and abundance we already have. For the mountains we’ve already climbed, and the lessons we’ve already received.
