I wake up feeling thankful for all I have in life from the smallest pleasures like the sun rise to my greatest love of my family, friends, and future relationships.
I savor every small pleasure in life too. I notice when a neighbor takes a minute to greet me with a smile and chat about the weather. I think about how delicious my first cup of coffee tastes. I take a moment each day to sit in silence and just acknowledge my happiness and joy.
I started to keep a journal this summer too. I write down not only the pleasant things that happen to me each day but my dream episode as if I'm already living it. My perfect life. My perfect partner. My perfect business. My perfect friendships. I make a point to be grateful for each thing that brings me closer to my dream life too.
I show kindness to others. I try to be creative and memorable, so my friends and family know how much I appreciate them. When possible, I pick up the phone to hear their voice or just write a quick text "I'm thinking of you right now."
I think about how much others have helped me, and I try to contribute something back. I may return a favor directly or I may do something nice for a stranger. I'm a strong believer in giving to others, not to get back but I believe I can't become better without first lifting someone else up and it's so simple.
I give thanks for my relationships.
I let my best friends know how much I count on their love and support. I tell my children that I am proud of them for trying regardless of the results. I trust my partner with my private thoughts and encourage them to pursue their dreams. I say I love you, I miss you, I'm thinking of you....and I truly mean it.
I give thanks for my health. Having a strong mind and body makes it possible for me to do the things I love.
I give thanks for my faith. I pray for my spiritual teachers, guides, and friends who help me to clarify my beliefs and make sound decisions. I have peace in knowing that all is unfolding in according to divine planning.
Today, I cultivate a sense of gratitude from the moment that I woke up. I notice the good things in my life and acknowledge the many acts of kindness that I have received. This is a glorious time to be alive, and I am so grateful you read my blog today :)
