Growing Vibrantly In Gratitude ...And Finding Our Teachers Along The Way
Transformation Magazine|Be Blessed, November 2017

Many people ask me, “What is the secret of Living Vibrantly?”

Kathy 'Katica' Rivera Wallace

The answer is so simple and yet so easy to forget: gratitude. Yes, that’s the primary ingredient, if you will, to Living Vibrantly. I have seen and felt the difference that gratitude makes in our lives and, at this point, I believe it’s actually the magic in life. My experience has shown that by living in gratitude, everyday of our life, a complete shift is possible. It truly is magical! Since my own transformation two and a half years ago, the act of expressing gratitude became and still remains instrumental in my daily life.

So, let’s establish the basic premise, “What is gratitude?” Gratitude, in this sense, is like no other attitude or mindset. Just by thinking of the word gratitude, I already feel my mind shift. As I go through my daily gratitude process, I actually feel the sensation of love and humility all the way to my core.

Solving the Puzzle

During my transformation, three teachers entered my life, and each one helped grow my gratitude through teaching and mentorship. It was truly amazing! I felt that these teachers provided a missing piece of my personal puzzle. Once I got through the learning process and the lessons, I felt my puzzle coming together and it was awesome! I was filled with excitement and the gratitude continued to expand! The more gratitude grew in my life, the more blessings entered my life. Each lesson was organic, not pushed or pulled, but rather revealed. It seemed natural, and it was beautiful!
