I am grateful to be different! There are days when being different is harder for me to be grateful for because I am focusing on the challenges it presents but today I am grateful to embrace my differences and acknowledge my own needs. I'm grateful to have played in the woods last night. There is something so healing for me in being in nature and especially at night when the leaves and trees bend to form creatures from the imagination. I'm grateful for the magnificent sparkle of fireflies twinkling in the darkness! (And I'm grateful for the show Firefly! haha) I'm grateful for the healing sound of water running through the creek bed and the cool feel of it washing over my feet! I'm grateful for a friend to share the experience. Today I am grateful for the fears and mis-truths that came up for me to see last night so that I could release them and I am now grateful for the tears of physically releasing them. Sometimes things do not go as we planned and then sometimes they go exactly as we subconsciously planned. Each of us has a unique set of experiences that has left us with a unique belief system, fears, hopes, and perceptions. They are not carved in stone and can continue to change and adapt as we have new experiences and make new conscious choices. Today I am grateful to recognize how much my perceptions have changed in the last couple years. I'm grateful to know how to take care of my spirit and give myself love. And I'm grateful to know that within this gift to myself is also a contribution to my world and the people I interact. What are your unique beliefs and within those what are your unique gifts to share with the world? It is time we stopped judging ourselves for being different and started focusing on how we can use this uniqueness to make a difference in our world! Celebrate YOU today! Namasté
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
