Being Grateful



“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” ~ Brian Tracey.
 
Today I am grateful for;
  • Since my last post BOTH of the computers in my home died. Rainman’s went out first and he offered to pay to get his fixed… with his own money! Wahoo! My computer died last Thursday and I was able to find a HP Pavilion Special Edition A6745F tower for under $500.00 including a two year warranty.
  • My wonderful and supportive father, who is there for me through everything. I am so lucky to have him.
  • My previous husband Jim and all the support he has always shown me.
  • The mistakes I make...daily...and for the people who let me know about them.
  • Willingness to examine myself honestly [sometimes painfully].
     
  • Learning to meditate and understanding how significant it is to still my mind so that I can touch my emotions.
  • Seeing an new perspective through someone else’s eyes.
  • Being able to distant myself from the actions of others so that everything they do doesn’t directly affect me.
  • Being in the moment and feeling life around me.
  • Having the strength to do things that scare me.
  • The sensual smell of books.
  • The inspiring notes of jazz music.
  • Sunshine in the winter days – I take the sun’s rays to be the Universe smiling on me.

How about you, what are you grateful for? Comments are always appreciated

    I am grateful for...
    my family,
    friends,
    my health,
    my sailboat,
    my insurance,
    the ability to pay my bills,
    my education,
    my books,
    and waking up in the morning

    I have struggled with this comment for a while now.
    I know i have alot to be grateful for but ithink I am only grateful for one thing and that's that there is still a tomorrow.
    Because as long as there is a tomorrow, then there will always be a way to make things right.

    The "sensual smell of books" and "inspiring notes of jazz" I can definitely relate to.

    Being able to be grateful is a gift...one that you obviously have!
