Good morning! It is Tuesday!! :) Try it. Gratitude changes everything. Don't believe me, try it for two months, once a week and see what unfolds…
This only takes a few moments to do but gives to you for much, much longer. So put down whatever you are doing and take a couple of minutes for yourself. Every Tuesday morning I am going to ask you to write down 5 things that you are grateful for and email them to me (keep for yourself as well). What are you feeling gratitude around? Here are mine for this week:
Knowing I can have what I create.
Creating what I want.
Fruit - it's what's for dinner (and breakfast and lunch).
There are no right or wrong answers. It is about what you are grateful for. It is proven that doing this once a week for three months (actually just 9 weeks) makes you happier, healthier, exercise more and less sensitive to perceived slights. You will sweat the small stuff less and focus on what really matters.
So… what are you waiting for???
Food for thought:
Whatever your gifts whatever your abilities, share them. You would do more harm to keep your love and awesomeness to yourself than if you spoke ill of everyone you knew. Withholding the gifts bestowed upon you is the only sin I know to be true.
Here is a poem I LOVE by a poet I love more:
When I Want To Kiss God
No one is looking
I swallow deserts and clouds
And chew on mountains knowing
They are sweet bones!
When no one is looking and I want
I just lift my own hand
