Good Morning!!! Tuesday Gratitude Practice is here!!! How will you take what you are grateful for through the rest of your day? This isn't just about writing it down and sending it back… put it out there! Let the world feel your appreciation! Let's make a difference.
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:
Love. Sex. Friends. Vision. Work.
There are no right or wrong answers. It is about what you are grateful for. It is proven that doing this once a week 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:
You are a powerful thing. You are an amazing creature. You are without limits, without stops. Whatever you decide will be. Look at your life, look at what you have put in place. Own all of it. See it as your doing, whether it is disease, love, wealth or poverty. When you own it you can control it. When you take responsibility you can decide how you will manage it. You are not a victim. You have the power to make something stay or go. Your life is yours to mold.
I have told you and others this many times and some of it may sink in and yet you are still struggling to believe it. I understand. It is really triggering for those who have serious illness to own being the reason for it. The idea alone, for some, is blasphemous. How dare I say that someone deserves AIDS or Cancer or brought it upon themselves. Well I want to stir something in you, so if that is you being pissed, it worked. You ask for all the shit and all the delicious to be in your life. Your thoughts, your actions your beliefs open up doors. Some doors are filled with love and light and others are filled with muck and yuck. I have opened many of both in my day and understand all too well how absolutely detailed and disciplined one must be in order to truly keep the crap at bay; not to mention what you must to to make the crap dissipate entirely. Just take this for the truth in this moment… you are the reason for your world looking, feeling, tasting, smelling and being what it is. Now, what will you do about it?
See, you need to get off of your ass. You need to stop looking for the other to direct you. You have to remember that each day is brand new with no blueprint that HAS to be followed. We choose each moment of each moment. Just because we where the same damn thing day after day doesn't mean our wardrobe is limited. It just means we are insane. I want to get you from crazy to coherent; from asleep to awake. It may or may not be jarring, freaky, disappointing (at first), empowering and daunting. It is, however, the only way we will finally realize our potential. You cannot expect someone else to be all YOU can be. You cannot expect the world to change when you create it the same way day in and day out. You cannot expect to be well when your thoughts are so sick. You will have to deal with this truth at some point… it may or may not be today, but the day will come. At least, in this moment, it is a choice… at some point you will have to deal with the reality of your power whether you are willing or kicking and screaming. We are infinite and divine and hardheaded as all get out. It makes us crazy and beautiful. It also holds us back. I want to see you leap forward, towards yourself, towards love.
