Good morning! It is Tuesday!! :) Gratitude breeds more gratitude… isn't that awesome?
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:
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:
"We always long for the forbidden things, and desire what is denied us." ~Francois Rabelais
What do you want? In general and specifically. Are there things that you want that you are judging? Stop it. Seriously. Let yourself want what you want and quit being the thought police. Maybe you won't go after some things because they don't resonate with your higher self, but there is much to learn from being aware of all of the levels of you and all of the desires from each level. Wanting does not mean you are good or bad, it just is what it is. Allow yourself to see what it is that you desire, allow those desires to be acknowledged and, if they truly are what you want, then allow yourself to go after them. Often the acceptance of your desire is enough to satiate those that don't resonate with your ideal self.
If you weren't trying to be someone who would you be? If you weren't worried about what someone else would say about your desires, what would those desires be? When you take out the judgement of the desires you have, what are you left with? Try it.
