Listen to yourself and others!
I am grateful for my ability to listen to my inner GPS. I do not always take action and follow it, but today I can hear it. Connected to that, I can listen to what other people tell me. It might be their words, and it might be their actions, but I can hear them loud and clear. When my intuition is trusted, a grateful life unfolds.
Today I communicate with myself and others, listening is a beautiful gift.
For most of us this is going to be a full couple of days that culminates into our ultimate day of gratitude that we get to spend with family and friends. The prayer has always been to build more and more gratitude so that we have nothing but gratitude to give on Thanksgiving. I think this is just a slice of what I should be looking forward to in all of my days, from this point and beyond. Very often when you ask someone their goals, they seem to be financial or material both of which are fine goals to have and certainly provide direction and structure to a life. This process and season that we are in remind me that what I want is a life full of gratitude for the path I am on, the people that I relate to and the things that I have now. So looking ahead I know that these daily practices are the simple things that will keep this goal a reality.
Today is a perfect day for me to continue to add to my tower of gratitude.
I was reminded of the power of circles this evening. During my life some of the most powerful conversations I have had, occurred in circles. These circles sometimes consisted of people I knew, sometimes strangers, but usually a mix. I am grateful for the intial lesson, and today’s reminder.
Today I take time to circle up with others and have meaningful conversations.
I woke up this morning and the first thing I remembered was that I missed posting yesterday. So this post is for self forgiveness and better late than never. It is a bit after 6am on Sunday and the result was that my day is started with an active thought about my loving community and gratitude in general. On this list of things that I already had today I am going to add one more and take some quality time to recharge and refresh. Yesterday I robbed myself of that chance so in the breath of self forgiveness today I will not do the same. Thank you life.
Today I am grateful that the sun will rise and I can assemble some of the pieces from yesterday.
In this day and age, when we are inundated with technology, I remain grateful this morning. I did a FaceTime chat with my baby, who I don’t get to see as often as I would like. Which is fantastic when you’re working long hours and you leave the house before the baby wakes up, get home after the baby goes to sleep, a nice little FaceTime in the middle of the day or in the early morning really helps us stay connected. Yesterday, I had a group text going with coworkers that I worked on a long project with and I haven’t seen any of them in over a year. We were able to reminisce, share pictures and caught up on each other’s lives, it was perfect. I’m grateful today for my ability to stay connected with my family and friends.
What are you grateful for, or how does our tech help you stay connected?
Help each other out, lift each other up, be generous; this is what makes my heart grateful today. Yesterday I had the chance to listen to a great interview, and participate in a conversation with a dear friend, and both reminded me of this idea of attempting to be a Good Samaritan. If I can be helpful to others every day, even for just a moment, it was a great day!
Today I come together with those around me, helping one another out.
Today love and peace are where my gratitude evolves from. Thank you Love, Thank you Light, Thank you Life!
Gratitude is action. It is easy for me to talk about gratitude, which is obviously what we have been doing for the last month. While reading a couple articles yesterday, I was reminded of the importance in walking my gratitude. With that reminder and inspiration, I made some phone calls in order to start taking steps with a grateful heart. Thank You Life
Today my gratitude inspires me to action, and I move with a grateful body.
My gratitude today flourishes because of my coworkers. I was reminded about that during two conversations earlier today. The connection I have experienced with them the past 2 years has been a blessing. The things I have learned from these friendships and working relationships have deeply enriched my life.
Today I engage those around me with love and connection.
My gratitude blossoms from within. The last handful of days I have had the chance to attend a wedding, take a road trip, spend time with family, and slow down a bit. Sitting here this morning I am reminded that regardless of how good life looks outside, or how much struggle there may appear to be; gratitude comes from within.
Today I embrace that inner light of gratitude, and allow it to guide the way.
