Avoid These Barriers to Grateful
An Excerpt from Dan’s 7 Impossibilities of Gratitude
You can’t worry and be grateful in the same moment.
Don’t worry about overcoming worry. Just notice and acknowledge benefit or advantage every day.
You can’t complain and practice gratitude with the same breath.
Tip: Breathe in deeply and breathe out “thank you” like a silent meditation.
You can’t be grateful and angry at the same time.
