“Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can – there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.” Sarah Caldwell
The gift of life ~
The gift of love ~
The gift of writing ~
Earlier this year, I wrote a blog post, on my Positive Kismet blog, that looked back at 2010 and then forward at 2011. The post which was based on a prompt by MamaKat’s Writers Workshop answered the question: What word will you choose as your theme for 2011? I chose flourishing as my word for 2011 and challenging for 2010. As we enter the second half of the year and enjoy the last full and official month of summer, it is time to look around and be grateful for what we have accomplished to date; to be thankful for what we have enjoyed today.
“When you are grateful fear disappears and abundance appears” Anthony Robbins
The gift of health ~
The gift of time and memories ~
The gift of family, friends and people we meet ~
Today, I’d like to revisit that word and remind us all to give thanks for the many ways; small and large, that our lives are flourishing. I know that every day I write a blog post and share it with others, I’ve registered another memory that wont be lost to the ether. When I take a sip of water and enjoy a meal, I know that but for the grace of God, I could be without. For starters, if we are able to see or read this post then we must be grateful for our lives.
The gift of life is taken so lightly that sometimes we forget the grace behind it and all the things we can’t do without it. I have added ten things that I am grateful for today and I hope you will pause and reflect on your day and the things that resonated in your heart today. I have added the rest below. What are you grateful for today? More Below 😉
The gift of a meal ~
The gift of mental clarity ~
The gift of speech ~
The gift of gratitude ~
Today, I met with some truly wonderful souls who welcomed me and answered all my questions. They spent time and they listened, and for that I am grateful to them. When all is said and done, we must stop and look at what we have done with our lives and how we have treated others.What about you? What are your thoughts? What ten things are you grateful for today? If you could do something differently today, what would that be? Do share! Thank you. 😉
