What Is True Gratitude?

Gratitude is living life with a real understanding that you are doing just fine.  Each one of us is living life FEELING like we are always playing from behind. When was the last time you thought about everything you have? About everyone who blesses your life or gives you energy? Reflecting on and tracking this is TRUE GRATITUDE.

Who Is Gratitude For?

For anyone who believes they are stuck, being thankful for what you have instead of focusing on all you don’t is a game-changer.  Gratitude is a practice for the person looking for answers who can’t find any.  Sound familiar? Give it a try. Taking a step back to acknowledge all the things you have to be grateful for can be life-changing.

What is the Gratitude Process Like?

True Gratitude is different for everyone, but the core practices of gratitude share a common thread no matter who you are. Imagine a daily practice where, in less than a few minutes a day your energy goes from -10 to 100.

It’s more than just a process, it’s a habit and a muscle you will build that will allow you to focus on your life and reach the highest goals you’ve imagined for yourself.

Each day becomes easier, better, and then GREAT! One day, you will find that you’re a contagious ball of energy and a beacon of hope to everyone around you.

1. Find your quiet place where no one can interrupt you

Building a muscle takes focus. Finding focus when we haven’t had much practice requires time away from all distractions. Find your quiet, personal place separated from all of the noise (including your phone).

2. Breathe into the moment and feel what your body is telling you

Before you can really dig into what your mind is processing, listen to the most important person in your life – YOU.

Take a deep breath, meditate, close your eyes… Do whatever it takes for you to get into THIS MOMENT. It’s the only moment that matters right now.

3. Read, Reflect, Read Again. Reflect some more

Read a gratitude prompt. What does it mean to you? What does it mean to others around you? What do you want it to mean?

Reflect on it.

Read it again

Reflect some more.

4. Respond and write it down to connect your soul

Reflection is great, but writing it down is more powerful for you and for your mind. It makes your reflections feel tangible and makes the rest of your brain and body believe it. 

Share with yourself what you’re thankful for, and let yourself realize all you have built for yourself.

5. Go back to it on the rough days and read it over and over

Your True Gratitude takes hold when you review what you were thankful for yesterday, last week, last month, even last year!

It is this habit that will get you through the toughest of times in your life and will keep you building your resilience muscle.

About Me

I am fierce and I’ll let you know what I think.

Being direct and honest is the best approach to solving problems and it’s one of the many values that I focus on with all of my clients. I am passionate about helping others find ways to make this a daily habit in their life.

 After years of building multiple successful businesses and working in a male led industry, I understand the challenges of working as a woman in challenging environments. I have experienced a lot of success, pain, and heartache. All of those have made me the person that I am today.  Each of my stories has helped me and many others at all stages of life – to be happier, more engaged, and more productive.

Let’s work together to inspire others to achieve success by encouraging one another to be confident, healthy and strong!


“I highly recommend Michelle for your consulting needs! She is an enthusiastic, energetic and engaging presenter. Michelle is a fierce advocate for women in the towing industry and beyond.  I personally can’t wait to see what she will accomplish next.”

Cynthia Martineau

Executive Director, TRAA

“Michelle is a great leader. She has been running 2 different businesses at the same time, one of them being 24/7/365… but she’s always available for advice or just a shoulder to cry on when times are tough. She continues to interact with leaders, passing these skills and traits on.”
