{Inspiration for you}

There is always, always something to be grateful for... even during the darkest times.

The fact is that, as humans, we tend to take everything in this life for granted. For sure, I have done that many times, and if I'm not vigilant and work to stay awake, it's easy to be caught up in victimhood mentality and not be really grateful for what I have.

Just last year, during an intense period of inner growth, I started being really grateful. I mean- truly. And the moment I felt that type of gratitude, right then and there I realized that what I had thought previously was gratitude, was not. It was superficial. It was not felt in all the fibers of my being. It didn't make me vibrate at just the thought of what I was grateful for. And most of all, was not unconditional. I needed a "condition" that made me feel good in order to feel grateful.

There are so many layers of our emotions and feelings in this human experience, and most times we give ourselves permission to access just the surface of them (because our heart is closed- or mostly closed). When my heart was opened up by a certain experience in my life, I started feeling everything in a much more profound way. Gratitude included. So, today, I know the difference between conditional and unconditional gratitude. I know because I feel it. I feel the different intensity of it.
To start feeling unconditional gratitude, you have to become aware of how each circumstance in your life shapes you. Every. single. one. The good and the bad ones. Especially the bad ones. This is not something that you can force yourself to believe- it must click inside you. It will do when you're ready for the next level of growth of your soul. Right then and there, these words will resonate with you. 

When you'll start realizing in the depths of you that you're here in Earth School to grow and evolve- and that difficulties are not here to block you- but to be overcome with courage, determination, intention, I promise you will start seeing everything with new eyes. The difficult circumstances in your life will become your greatest blessings- opportunities to become better and better. You will start being really grateful for everything in your life. No exception.

We are, you are, on a journey to greater and greater power. Start feeling this in the depths of you. And be grateful along the way for each and every infinitesimal experience you have in your life- because truth is, they are serving you.
