28 Day Gratitude Practice: Counting My Blessings Day 13
 
Today was a very full day.
I was so busy I did not have time to eat until late.
And I surely did not get enough water throughout the day.
No worries, I have some now.
 
Today I went from one amazing process of life transformation to another.
Changes seem to be coming faster and faster and faster.
I receive one and suddenly there are more…
More to be noticed, reviewed, accepted and appreciated.
 
I am certain they all received my invitation to arrive…
and just in the nick of time, here they all are…
But now, at the end of the day,
I am feeling quite frazzled…
Even perhaps a bit bedazzled…
 
So tonight, when I am counting my blessings,
which I had intended to count this morning,
I find myself most grateful for
“What Is Not”.
First and foremost, I am grateful that I am not a politician.
I attended a county commissioner meeting today,
learning about a process that will affect our property…
Or NOT.
That whole process exhausts me.
 
Here’s 10 more “What Nots”:
 
I am not dead.
I am not hungry.
I am not too young.
I am not too old.
I am not too big.
I am not too small.
I am not afraid.
I am not without hope.
I am not without resources.
I am not alone.
 
I know there are many more.
But in this moment they have escaped my consciousness.
And tomorrow, after the reset of bountiful sleep,
I will be again able to remember how to focus on Gratitude for What Is.
But for now, I am Most Grateful for What is NOT.

I invite you to Join Us… and remember what you are most grateful for… and not.

 
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
It is done, It is done, It is done.

Counting My Blessings: Day 12 Gratitude for the People in My Life

Today I am full of gratitude for the people in my life who help me in so many ways…

1. Emotional sharing helps me feel soul connected and not alone on this journey of life, giving me a glimpse into eternal joy…
2. Technical support helps me be successful in my online work. Just yesterday I asked a technically gifted friend for some simple PC computer advice, and within 3 hours I had a new computer on my desktop, installed and functional… totally amazing!
3. Physical support gives me an arm to lean on when I need it. The status of my physical health and strength varies day to day. Sometimes I’m absolutely fine. Sometimes I feel a bit off balance. I so appreciate the kind patience of those I am close to – they seem to have an awareness of my needs and offer assistance without being asked. And they let me do it myself when I can.
4. I am grateful for my amazing clients! They appreciate my efforts on their behalf and the results they receive. It is a blessing to have work that I enjoy.
5. I am grateful for my Facebook friends. I know that when I feel a bit scattered, 10 minutes on my FB feed and I am inspired, calmed, encouraged, challenged and loved.
6. I am grateful for spiritual tools mentors who show me how to explore the path to be more fully present, more fully connected to divine spirit, to more easily flow through my life experiences awake, aware, and on purpose… without resistance or fear.
7. I am grateful for the trust I see in my grandchildren’s eyes, when they come to me for love, acceptance, encouragement, guidance, and faith… This is when I know I still have much to live for…
8. I am so grateful for this curious, divine experience of physical embodiment… that my eternal spirit has the opportunity to feel waves of emotion and explore what these emotions mean to me…
9. I am grateful that I can choose the emotions that I prefer. I have the power to simply turn away from that which I perceive as being a negative influence on me… and turning more fully toward that which feels supportive and joyful.
10. I am grateful that though I have lived a good number of years already, in some ways I feel my life is just beginning…

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.
It is done, It is done, It is done.

The Gift of Time

The Gift of Time

The Gift of Time

Today I am grateful for the Gift of Time.  Time to be introspective.  Time to focus on this amazing Gratitude practice.  Time to share it with others. I’m only on Day 7, but the blessings are already coming into my circle of awareness.

I have been journaling my experience of this 28 Day Gratitude Practice on Facebook, and some people asked if I would guide them along in the process, too.  So I created a Facebook Group for the 28 Day Gratitude Practice, and invited them and a few other like-minded friends to join together and ring in this New Year with joy.  It’s only been up for a few hours, but I am grateful for the positive response.  At last count over 80 people have joined in. I will post the daily practice as outlined in “The Magic” by Rhonda Byrne, along with my personal practice journal entries.  Group members are invited to post their experiences and thoughts, too. It will be available there to remember and renew the practice of gratitude whenever needed.

28 Day Gratitude Practice: Day 7, Counting My Blessings

  1. Today I am grateful for serendipitous synchronicities… those things that just seem to show up when and where they are needed.Three days ago I took time out of a busy day to watch and take notes on a Robbins Madanes Training video, where a coach was coached on how to enroll clients. There were several specific points that stood out to me. Two days later I received a request for business coaching… and serendipitously, I knew just how to respond.
    That same day, my daughter was asked by her employer to do free-lance coaching/tutoring for one of his counseling clients to specifically help her through the fearful task of filing her taxes and managing her money. My daughter is well qualified to do so and was honored to accept, but unsure about how to structure the process. I read her the notes I took from the video and how I responded to the request for coaching that came to me… it was perfect for her needs, too. Oh yes, I love serendipitous synchronicities.

    2. I am grateful for great friends and family who reach out in small ways to lift, inspire, and encourage me, and each other, along this path of purpose.

    3. I am grateful for the sacred spiritual gifts that God imparts to human hearts… that we are each empowered with the abilities we need to create in our lives, that which we truly seek.

    4. I am grateful for the gift of time. Time gives a semblance of structure and organization to our world. Time gives us a context within with to celebrate accomplishments and special days…

    5. I am grateful for circles, for their inclusiveness.

    6. I am grateful for squares, for their symmetry. So I can experience “stepping out of the box”.

    7. I am grateful for randomness. Randomness allows variety and sparks creativity.

    8. I am grateful for the law of gravity. So I can experience connectedness and ground with Mother Earth.

    9. I am grateful for the sky. I always have something to look up to.

    10. I am grateful for music. Music is art + math + science rolled together. Beautiful music brings order to my mind, calmness to my body, and peace to my spirit.

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
    It is done, It is done, It is done.
