Gratitude is a funny thing. It can be so hard to have any of it at times, but if you force yourself to make a list, you often find you have so much more to be thankful for than you could ever imagine. Don’t believe me? Try it. Make a list. It might start out with something simple and stupid like…
1.Roof over head.
2.Car that runs.
3.Food on table.
You might feel stupid. You might feel shame. But often you find yourself starting to add more to your meager little list…
4.Trails near by to hike
5.Online Ballet classes to make my inner child smile
8.Beautiful skies, deer, and butterflies
9.Smooth Jazz and Solfeggio Frequencies
After listing some things that bring you joy you might start to list things that don’t bring you joy but also are working well for you like…
10.My boss lets me come in late every single day.
11.Even though I hate my commute, I am glad I have started listening to K-Love again
12.The new cafe at work so I can grab coffee a couple of times a week
13.The Kabbalah class that is helping me overcome my main issue
14.My little suburb - it is far away from everything but it has some nice stuff too and it is safe!
After you have listed some things that are helping you even though you wish you didn’t need that help you might find yourself going deeper and listing what you don’t like because you now see how it is being used to propel you forward…
15.My job - it is setting me up for a career in a field with great hours and time off and it is a field that is good for women
16.Lack of Quality Friendships - the quit space has allowed me to turn inward, to read, to write, to dance and to flow. The quiet space has provided a needed transformation. I am at peace with what is and what will be for maybe the first time ever.
17.Memphis - the journey my soul has been on here is unreal. I have changed so much since I came back and I know I will be leaving much stronger, smarter, and more soul centered than ever. I can say with confidence I am ready for whatever lies ahead.
And then you realize everything good and bad has been happening for your growth, for your benefit, for what lies ahead of you… And you can’t help but smile in the warmth created by realizing it really is all for you.
