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 in all of its forms.
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:
Your gift to the world is unique. You are here on purpose and it is your duty to own that purpose. No matter what you are engaged in, no matter how it is judged, it has a purpose, a higher meaning than what we, on this plane, can fully see. Instead of worrying about someone's version of us, or what is right, ask yourself what you need and wait for the inspiration to come. It could be that you need outside assistance, listen to that, it could be that the work is simply and inside job, listen to that too. You choose the path you follow, no one else, and we all are working on doing the best we can.
We often don't recognize that we are ALL doing the best we can. We judge and put down and misuse one another regularly. The abuse we suffer at the hands of one another is staggering. It is in direct proportion to the abuse we inflict upon ourselves. With that understanding, look at the world, see the pain the hurt and the suffering… now stop contributing to it in ANY way… It takes that, the diligent self-care of all of us to create a different world for all of us to thrive. So the next time you want to put someone down, including yourself, remember that you are sending that abuse out into the world and supporting it in others. You are creating an energetic space where love doesn't blossom. You are holding space for fear.
Remember, you are, like everyone else, trying to figure you out. You are working to learn and grow and love and know. When you extend that understanding of your life to others it is extended back to you. Send out love get back love… it is simple. When you have more support than resistance, learning what you are here to do is simpler to figure out.
Have fun! Share love! Be light!
