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:
The universe is a funny thing. I always get corrected when I stray off my path. I cannot stay aimlessly wandering, artfully procrastinating or deliberately stalling for long. I am always pushed forward and I do not always greet the change with open arms. Sometimes I try to pull away from the tugging of my calling, sometimes I just need to sit and mourn the loss of something that wasn't mine and not in line with what I know I need to be doing. It just isn't fun to be going along and thinking everything is all good to find out I was a little bit wrong… or that it wasn't all quite right.
None of us enjoy being corrected or put back on track. It can be painful, jarring, soul crushing even. The truth is we always know that whatever we are forced to let go of wasn't serving us anymore (if it served us to begin with). We have so many choices, so many ways in which we could deal with abrupt and unexpected change, especially when we view it as necessary. When you recognize that change is important for forward movement you can move through the pain of loss in a way that is less devastating than if you feel like it should not have happened to begin with. When you own that the changes you are facing are necessary and in your best interest you begin to create and foster a beautifully loving relationship with yourself.
As you move along in your life recognize what is supporting you and your dreams. When the universe shows you (by ridding you of) what isn't supporting you and your dreams, which it will, do your best to accept the change with grace and love. Guidance comes in all forms, sometimes with velvet gloves and sometimes with a push and shove. How you handle it won't stop it from happening. Change is inevitable, how will you meet it?
