Good Afternoon!!! 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:
No snow. Dreaming. Holiday Lights. Strength. Options.
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:
What are you doing to get what you want? What do you do everyday, without fail, to reach your goals? Everybody wishes for things, it is easy-ish to do for most. There are those whose lives have been so darkened that they have a hard time dreaming, but for the majority, wanting is a serious hobby. The issue is that most people don't do more than want. They want to have a better relationship with their families, to have a stronger and more fulfilling connection with their lover, to feel like they aren't always searching for happiness. People want people to be nice, to stop doing awful things, to treat one another with compassion. Wanting has taken over and most don't know how to get what they want at all.
We like or dislike, want or don't want, but there are no action buttons on our social media platforms. In order for the wanting to end the doing must begin. You will need to start giving yourself the things you expect, desire, want the world to give to you. You want your lover to be more communicative then be more communicative and hold space for them to be as well. You want your friends to be healthier, be healthier and your friends will change. You want to be successful in your chosen field, then you will have to believe that you can be, you cannot just want it; you don't sleep, party or procrastinate your way to success. You want something you have to go for it despite any and all resistance to the contrary (as long as you aren't forcing someone or something to bend to you desires).
Want if you want… it won't get you where you want to be. Decision making, risk taking, and awakening all bring you to results. You are going to be where you are until you take some steps to be somewhere else. You cannot look for magic to happen passively. Magic takes effort, magic is the result of work. When you are feeling stuck ask yourself, "what am I doing to get what I want?" Then get moving.
