A Gratitude List: The Power of Gratitude as a Daily Practice!

Updated: November 24, 2019


 Let’s do an attitude of gratitude challenge for the last part of the year! 

I’ll start! I’ll share a personal list that includes people, books who have inspired me and helped me grow, etc. I’m gonna share mine with you for 2019! Then YOU share yours!

Then every day until the end of the year, begin your day hand on heart tuning into Gratitude—the essence of it and all it means to you!

First this year I am really grateful for YOU. I know you could be reading so many other people’s blogs. You signed up for mine and for that I am so, so grateful.

I’m grateful for my relationship and faith in a Higher Power—it doesn’t matter what you call it—God, Goddess, Great Spirit, Conscious Universe, Divine Matrix, The Dude, etc., the name doesn’t matter. The relationship, faith, and service to it does.  

I am grateful for my ancestors—for my Dad and my great grandmother’s teachings, (and my nanny’s) as my belief that a spirit resides in every living thing in Nature, has only deepened these last few years. I remember how everyone is connected when I think of how we are one in Nature. It helps when I’m also reminded of the divisions and inequities that need healing. 

I’m grateful for my online school and all the students who have come from 36 countries!! I am grateful for each and every one!

I’m grateful for the tough lessons I’ve experienced this year, for the humility, understanding, compassion, and humor I’ve had to foster as I dive into the necessary unpacking of old ideas that need to change. Once your eyes are open you can’t close them again—your heart and ears must remain open too.

I’m grateful I get to learn, make mistakes, I get to forgive, I get to be creative, I get to eat good food, compose, and listen to music.

 I am grateful for my team, for my publisher, for my friends and colleagues. 

I’m deeply grateful for my 34 years of sobriety. 

I’m grateful I get to make meaningful work and to serve in a way that lights me up every day.

I’m grateful for my adorable dogs and husband with whom I share most of my time and my laughter, yes yes mostly I am grateful for laughter! 

So… that was mine. It’s your turn. And have a joyous grateful week 😉

  • Alyssa Page

    Love this Collette! ❤ I’m so grateful to find YOU! – your teachings and the crystal spirit oracle cards that speak more deeply than any other deck has before to me. I’m deeply grateful for all of the HARD challenges I’ve had to face internally and externally and finally learning their lessons after years of denial and avoidance. I’m so grateful to finally trust the universe, to reconnect with my higher self, to connect with my ancestors stronger than ever before, to realize my xalling, power, strength and courage and to step into my role as co-creator. I’m grateful to carry hope, joy and love in my heart no matter my outside circumstances. I’m grateful for the darkness and realization that once faced, I’m given the torch to once more bring the light. I’m grateful for the time I was given with my dog Lucky, cat Mimi and in-laws Tom & Tina, all of whom I lost on this plane in October, but all of whom have left me with love and joyful memories that will last forever. I’m grateful to know that they are now in peace and are always watching over and protecting me. I am grateful for my guides, true friends and family and grateful to be shown those who no longer serve me. I am grateful for 2 years of sobriety. I am grateful for where I am, each and every present moment and for the transformation that 2020 holds for myself and this planet. Amazing things are headed our way and I am so grateful to be in a state of mind that is able to savor every single moment. ❤

  • Reina Ortega

    There’s so much I’m grateful for beginning with the Universe. I’ve always loved nature and the beauty that the Universe has to offer; however, this was the year I surrounded myself with people who showed me, we are one with the Universe. My life has been so different bringing myself closer to Spirit. Had good times and bad times this year like any other year, but my way of handling situations were quite different than in the past. Thanks to God, Divine Spirit, and my spiritual team. My gratitude extends to my family, my children, my boyfriend, our furry children, friends and acquaintances. I’m grateful for the growth I’ve experienced this year. I’m grateful for Oracle School which has opened my eyes to learning so much more about myself, including my imperfections. I’m grateful each and every morning and evening.♥️♥️♥️

    I’m grateful – these are just today’s – for my material and financial security which enable me to have a home that’s safe and sound, a place to come back to; and the wherewithall to do what’s necessary to maintain the structure and pay the utilities without worry – this is a really important aspect of my life since I grew up in a poor home and never imagined I could be this “secure”. I’m grateful for my late husband, who loved me enough to marry me, despite his family, and who taught me that I AM lovable, “warts an’all”. I’m grateful for my rescue cats that are “a heartbeat in the house”. That’s all for today 🙂

    I am grateful that I am mobile and can stay active on a daily basis. I am also so grateful for the medical profession and the evolving procedures out there to help others live a longer life.
    I am grateful for most of the life lessons I have learned along the way. ( I’m still getting there which I why I didn’t say “All”) It’s a work in progress with some family issues.)
    I am grateful that every day I learn more and more on my own spiritual path which continues to guide me to a higher place.

I am grateful to have a sister and niece to paint with in our own art studio and to inspire all our descendants to express their creativity.

    I am most grateful to the Goddess and the Buddha for their comfort and guidance. I am grateful to the pantheon of Goddesses, Gods, Elemental Entities and Angels who have criss-crossed my path of evolution through many dimensions.
    Today I am grateful to you Collette for starting my day in gratitude and grace.

    Greetings Colette: Gratitude abounds in my life. It lie in my fat cat who sleeps on my foot while I type this and if I shift my foot slightly he starts the purr machine up full force till he sleeps again. Gratitude is what happens when my 84 year old Mother calls for a chat and we laugh and giggle or she needs to be calmed down because she is confused and she looks to me to do that. Gratitude for having 2BFFs. 1 is special, 2 is a treasure. A special Sister tops my list. My favorite travel buddy ❤. My Twisted Blister Sister ❤❤❤. For Oracle School, that has given mya freedom and a new way of living a guided life❤. For 31 years of sobriety. For the deep knowing that more goodness is on its way. Gratitude, gratefulness, love, wishing you all more of it. Sandra ox

    I am grateful for the life I live because I know it is one of purpose.
    I am grateful for the year that is almost done because it brought me so many lessons – about abundance, contentment, ineffective belief systems, deeper insights.
    I am grateful to be constantly guided by Angels and Spirit Guides and Oracle Card readings because they remind me about love constantly.
    I am grateful, grateful, grateful.

    • Colette Baron-Reid

      So much to be grateful for! Thank you for sharing your list with me, Dibay!

    I am grateful for my mother’s teachings. She always told us that God is everywhere, church isn’t the only place to pray.
    I am grateful for my husband. He passed this year in March. He was not a spiritual soul, but when he came to me through a medium, his first comment was “There is a light!!”….he had a lot of beautiful things to tell me during that reading.
    I am grateful for being blessed by the gift of my two children. My daughter is my savior and stuck with me in the trenches through the ordeal of having to deal with an angry stepdaughter.
    I am grateful to my friend who “lent” me her deck of your Oracle cards, which were teachings from “The Mist of Avalon”. The book is now a gift from her. The Mist of Avalon is my most favorite book of yours.
    I am grateful that I’m delving more and more into my Divine Infinite Spirit. I’m learning to meditate and to breath when I get ahead of myself.
    I am grateful to have found you; I listen to HayStation Radio and love it when you come in; your energy is absolutely uplifting.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you and blessed be each and everyone of you.
    Emily from California
    I am grateful for my circle of friends that love and support me, always.

    ” I have no cravings for great wealth, or fine estates and such.
    I yearn not for a chest of jewels, or the fabled Midas touch.
    I’m quite content with what I own, my needs are very few;
    I’m rich indeed because I’ve met a soul as rare as you”.

    From my heart I am so grateful to be able to share my truth
    and perspective, to be welcome, and heard and to participate
    and celebrate with everyone. To learn and grow and to know
    what really matters. I’m grateful when my plan doesn’t
    turn out as I expected and instead a better plan is revealed which is better than I could imagine. Grateful for humility, patience grace and peace. Grateful for popcorn, music, and a library right next door that offers unlimited inspiration, free of charge. I could go on, but have already read so many
    other reasons in this blog, don’t want to tire your eyes any further.
    Thank you Colette for sharing your shining light and for inspiring and offering hope and promise for a vision that is much brighter, and full of potential.
    Many Blessings.
