I'm grateful to be kicking off today with an adventure! I'm grateful to be getting back to one of my favorite states for a little camping and kayaking! I'm grateful to have wonderful friends that helped me to surprise my best friend with a kayak for our trip! Their generosity is so amazing and I'm so grateful! Well, the car is packed and I'm ready to let the wind blow off the city dust for a few days! I will try to post via my phone while I am gone but if I am unable, rest assured I am grateful to be out in nature! I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend! How can you reconnect with nature this weekend? What are you grateful for?
Today I'm grateful for the rain. I'm grateful for it's gentle patter to remind me to take things as they come. It is so easy in day to day life to get caught up in the stress of a particular situation. I am by no means immune to turning into a stress-monkey. But today I am grateful for these stresses that remind me to breathe and to just roll with it. I'm also grateful to know my body and know just how much physical exercise helps me to recenter. I hope today finds you well and minimal stresses greet you as you go through your day. But if stress does present itself, how will you choose to handle it?
"And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." - Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
I'm so grateful to feel so completely supported today! I'm grateful for such an amazing universe that orchestrates things into place so what we need can be readily available to us when the time is right! This does not mean that everything we want on a whim will be instantly dropped at our feet but the path will open to achieve the things you truly put your heart and mind into. I believe this 100% and I am so very grateful! Can you see the support all around you? Sometimes it is so subtle, but important none the less! What are you grateful for today?
I'm so grateful for the abundance that is showing up in my life today! Ask and you shall receive! If you are like me then it is hard to ask but in asking I have been overwhelmed by the loving response I have received! I'm so so grateful for all my friends and family who give their love and energy so generously each day! In which ways is abundance showing up in your life today?
I am so grateful to wake up this morning and know I am surrounded by love! I'm so grateful to be blessed with friends that are family and family that are friends. I'm grateful for the balance of all things and I'm glad that the balance is supported in love! I do not believe that hate is the opposite of love. Hate is a misdirection of passion from what you would like to see changed, focused on only what is wrong. If there is an opposite of love it would be indifference and I have yet to meet someone that is truly indifferent. Let the walls of fear fall and embrace the love that is all around you all the time. Today is a great day to tell the people that are important to you that you love them. Who will you share your love with today?
I'm grateful for a country that takes the time to honor those who gave their lives in service. Today I would like to take time to give my love to all who have served. I send love to those who fell and those who stood beside them. I send love to all the families that were left behind and know that sacrifice so well. I give love to everyone who has lost anyone who meant the world to them. May we spend today, not in mourning for those who are gone, but in celebration of their lives lived. Perhaps, if you can, honor that person by doing something that person loved to do, like disc golf. I'm so grateful for the time I shared with those people I loved that are no longer with me. How can you celebrate loved ones memories today?
I'm grateful to wake up to a rainy day so I can sit quietly and just enjoy the sounds of the pattering drops. I'm grateful for wonderful friends and family that help uplift me when I am struggling. I'm grateful to have a buoyant spirit that makes it easier for me to bounce back to gratitude and joy. I'm grateful for quotes from the movie Elf, that even out of season can make me laugh! What cheers you up when you are going through struggles?
I'm grateful for challenges that remind me to practice gratitude. I'm so grateful that I have a life full of things to be grateful for but I'm also grateful for moments that make me step back from my emotions and refocus on the blessings. Tonight I'm so grateful to have so many people that want to hang out with me. I'm so grateful to get to play one of my favorite sports with people I care about. I'm so grateful to have reliable transportation. I'm so grateful to have loving, supportive parents and 2 snuggly dogs! I'm grateful for the way music can uplift my soul. Which things are you grateful for during your challenging moments? Here's one of my favorite uplifting songs: http://youtu.be/LzUTZUONyms
I'm grateful for the message of gratitude at church today! I'm grateful to hear and read other peoples' gratitudes! I'm so grateful to live in such a loving, thankful community! Have a beautiful day!!!
I woke this morning to Jack Johnson singing "slow down everyone you're moving too fast" in my head. That is exactly how I feel this morning. I'm grateful to recognize that I have been on hyper speed lately and need to just take a breath and move through my day in ease. I'm grateful to reconnect with nature and to let go of excess stress about what will be in the future or what has been in the past. Today, the only thing that is important is relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends! I'm so grateful for all the wonderful people in my life! How will you spend your day? What are you grateful for in this moment?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
