"Gratitude is like a muscle. The more we train that muscle to look for the good, the more good we find." ~ Vismaya Rubin
Michele Vismaya Rubin, founder of Living in GRATITUDE Today, is on a mission to get people to exercise their GRATITUDE muscle in order to experience more love, joy, and prosperity in their life right now. Vismaya coaches people on the benefits of a Gratitude Practice, how to start one, and most importantly how to maintain it during difficult times.
Vismaya’s journey began in the classroom of an inner-city school where she taught her students to find the beauty and joy in their life by shifting their perspectives despite adversity.
When her high school freshmen entered the room, they carried more than the weight of their backpacks. Feelings of worthlessness and depression, secrets of unreported abuse, and the inability to protect the ones they loved weighed them down. Her greatest challenge was figuring out how to teach her curriculum, and lighten their emotional load. So, it began. Each month they kept a GRATITUDE chart, a list of 20 unique things they were grateful for that month. In August, she was met with blank stares. Some said they would lie and others complained that they had nothing to be grateful for. By November, the thank you messages began. By February, they were excited to fill out their charts and turn them in. Some realized how lucky they were to spend time with their family, relationships between siblings improved, they felt important. You see nothing changed but their perception of their reality.
Here’s what a few of her students said.
“What started off as just an assignment, and something I did to get a good grade, became something that really changed my life. When I watched television or talked to people around me, I realized that my life is amazing and that I have so many things to be grateful for it. I was excited and looked forward to filling out my GRATITUDE chart; it made me happy. ...I began noticing the little things in my life that I never paid attention to. I would read it (my GRATITUDE Chart) over and and over... [and think] that was such a good moment I'm so glad that I have a way to remember it. ...[keeping a monthly GRATITUDE Chart] made me realize that I live a great life... so I better really open my eyes and really open my heart to have it.” 9th Grade student.
Knowing her message could change lives, she decided to leave the classroom and share it in the world. What started out as a hobby became the Living in GRATITUDE Today Movement. Through her own research and life experience, Vismaya learned that when we practice gratitude, we open the door for more happiness, joy, productivity, and stronger connections with the people around us.
Vismaya, best-selling author, teaches about gratitude at both live events and live webinars all over the United States. She has created the Living in GRATITUDE Today membership and gratitude gear to support people in their GRATITUDE practice.
