- Hi everyone. My name is Amber B, and I invite you to consider this question with me. How can I be satisfied by my desires? How can I be satisfied by my desires? Satisfaction is a state of being that is often pursued through relationships and achievement only to obtain said things, and on the other side, having still not found satisfaction. With this awareness, it is so necessary and important for us to ask ourselves, "Why is that?" "Does that make my pursuits meaningless?" "Does it make my desires bad?" Finding satisfaction isn't so much about obtaining what you desire, and quickly getting to the end of a finish line. It's about how you obtain what you desire. Today, I have two tools to share with you to support you in finding satisfaction in your desires by creating them using gratitude. The first thing we must acknowledge is that the present moment is all that we have. Whatever thoughts and feelings you're projecting onto the now, you'll also project onto what is added to your now. So if you're wondering how you will receive and experience your desires, the answer is in the same way you are currently receiving and experiencing the present moment. And so, when we attempt to achieve ourselves out of the present moment or romantic relationship ourselves out of the present moment, we're not receiving what we already have, and we're creating from a place of lack, and we'll only perpetuate that lack no matter how much we obtain or achieve. And so the key to being satisfied by our desires is to create them using gratitude. If you want to see more of something in your life, give thanks and gratitude for its current expression in your present, and allow that genuine gratitude to strike a fire inside of you. And that continued acknowledgement and giving of thanks will grow that fire bigger and bigger and bigger until it eventually translates into what you specifically desire. In this way, we make a lifestyle out of saying thank you, and the more we say thank you, the better things to get. Now, we are no longer creating from lack and separateness, but abundance and connection. The second tool in finding satisfaction within your desires through gratitude, and it's really important, is to give thanks even for hard things. Hard things are going to transpire in our lives, and giving thanks doesn't stop them from being hard. It does, however, contextualize them, and point them in the right direction. When we say thank you for hard things, we're expressing our commitment to ourselves and to life. We're claiming and acknowledging that everything is happening for us, and ultimately, is an opportunity. The more we practice gratitude, the more satisfying and purpose-filled our present continues to be. I challenge you for the next 24 hours to try saying thank you for everything.
