Gratitude List 13/02/2019: My day has started

Gratitude List 13/02/2019

Today I am grateful to get up at the crack of dawn. To make the most of today. Once this day has gone it’ll be gone forever.

Today I am grateful I have started my day well. I am in the process of beginning my day as suggested. I intend for my day to continue in the same way.

Today I am grateful to hear the early bird songs, see the dawning sky and feel the cold crisp air.

Today I am grateful I left my home with a smile on my face and an abundance of love.

Today I am grateful I am on my way to meet a good friend, to unite and to pass on the same message that saved my own.

Today I am grateful for the job I will go to afterwards. For the income that provides me with shelter, food and security.

Today I am grateful for the prepared lunch I have in my bag. Its healthy, plentiful and cheap.

Today I am grateful for the half hour break I will have by myself. Probably the only opportunity I’ll have. I intend to fill it with something that’s good for me.

Today I am grateful I am then collecting my children. I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like but I am truly blessed to see them at all.

Today I am grateful I am looking forward to finding out about my children’s day, helping them with their work, sitting at the dinner table together, and reading to my daughter at bed time.

Today I am grateful for the tools I have gained which will enable me to deal with my day, especially when it doesn’t go to plan. Through my spiritual connection I feel powerful today.

Today I am grateful to be alive.

Gratitude List 25/01/2019: What do I get?

Gratitude List 25/01/2019

What do I get when I look at this picture?

First and foremost I see an abundance of beauty. I see an array of stunning colours and patterns. Today I am grateful for the blessing of sight.

I see a much greater power than myself. The sun’s energy is clearly evident through it’s heat and light. Powers that I believe I can draw on. Today I am grateful for this connection.

I see that although the colours represent heat, it is bitterly cold outside. Today I am grateful for the warm home this picture was taken from.

I see a miracle that the sun is exactly the right distance away to support life here on Earth. Today I am grateful for this awareness.

I see a reminder that I am but one of billions standing on a planet, amongst thousands of others planets. Today I am grateful for this humility.

I see a city full of opportunities and a freedom to pursue them. In comparison to some, a very safe one too. Today I am grateful I don’t take this for granted.

I see a new dawning, which means I woke up. Today I am grateful to be alive.
