Thankful

“When you wish someone joy, you wish them peace, love, prosperity,
happiness… all the good things.”Maya Angelou

Bless you dear friends and welcome to today’s post. Thanks for visiting and taking time to pause, read and reflect.

One of the many joys of being a blogger is the heart-warming emails and feedback I receive from you. Today’s post was inspired by a comment I received from a fellow reader who read my recent post, My Top Ten Fears And Struggle For Inner Peace and as a suggestion, recommended I focus on my Top 10 Blessings and see what miracles I might find there.

What A Great Idea…

When I read her comment, I thought “Yes! What a great idea-thank you!” And said I’ll do it. That was over three weeks ago:(

It’s crazy but I spent ages pondering about what to write, what blessings to focus on and kept putting off this essential practice. I journal but haven’t done my “Gratitude Journal” for a while and felt “stuck”. This morning, I read a blog my friend and fellow blogger, Sonia Harris wrote, where she speaks about the power of taking inspired action.

As I read her words and listened to the accompanying video of Jack Canfield talking about “inspired action” I was inspired and ready to write and share my blessings. You can check out Sonia’s blog and AND watch the 4 minute video of Jack Cranfield talking about the power of taking inspired action when you click here.

So, Here I Am, Sitting And Sharing My List Of What Am I Thankful For…

Thankful

And Here’s How I Did It

1. Sat quietly in prayer (here is a prayer you can use)
2. Picked up my journal
3. Set my phone timer for ten minutes.
4. Wrote the heading “Today I Am Grateful For…in my journal
5. Pressed “start” on my phone timer and
6. Wrote about the things I’m Thankful For…. see list below
7. When the timer went off, I sat quietly for a few more minutes, just being present and thankful for the energy and sense         of calm flowing through. Moved to my desk, set up my laptop and wrote this blog post :)

My prayer in sharing my story and things I’m Thankful For Today, is to inspires you to look at your life, value what you have and if you haven’t done so, take ten minutes and write out your list of “Today, I Am Grateful For… list. It’s a wonderful practice and doing it put me in a more appreciative and high-energy vibe mood, which as you know is one of the happiest space to be.
