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:

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:
I love growth. I love it. I also know that it comes with tears, resistance, fear and discomfort… but it comes and when you are open there are less of those things and more of the joy, revelations and breakthroughs associated with change. So often change is thrust upon us without warning. We don't always seem to be at the helm when our lives are tossed around and change is the result.
What we are in charge of is how we choose to handle what we are given. When we are shown our lives moving in a direction we hadn't intended them to go we can choose to put the work in to resist the movement that is seemingly inevitable or breathe into the possibility of it being what we need. The choice is personal and there is no right or wrong answer. It is your life and within it your free will. Only you will know what you need to do. You may think you don't know in some instances, but even that is a knowing on one level… knowing that you need to make no decisions and be still. Or make no decisions and push for answers, if you so choose. All is with purpose just not always with awareness.
When you become aware of the fact that you choose how you receive, see, and give everything, you will rarely be confused. You will rarely be unsure. You will rarely be knocked down. You will feel very much like the conductor or at least the first violin in your life. Isn't that cool?
There is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it's because that desire originated in the soul of the universe... The soul of the world is nourished by people's happiness.
