How often do you feel genuinely grateful for what you have in your life?
There is a big difference between acting grateful and feeling genuine gratitude in your heart.
“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” ~Eckhart Tolle, Author of The Power of Now

The wounded self wants to believe that rattling off affirmations and statements of gratitude will give it this control.
