Each day when we wake up we are given so many gifts even before we open up our eyes, or consciously have our first thought of the day! Are we aware of what our gifts are? Is our life too busy to notice the greatness of each day? Our life is a Gift from God and it is so so important for us to really connect with this and be grateful for our live and our experiences.
When we slept in our warm wonderful beds, we drifted off into our dreamland, all the time trusting that our bodies would work perfectly that our hearts would beat in perfect rhythm, and all our organs are in the flow and we are safe. Do we stop to thank our bodies each morning for doing an amazing job while we slept? Crazy to think that all that powerful energy is going on internally, all for us, but do we ever stop to thank ourselves or God for giving us miracle bodies?
Or do we just jump out of bed, negative, late, frantic, worrying about what the day will hold, about our boss, the traffic on the way to work, our neighbours, the bills we need to pay or those gorgeous pair of shoes on sale we want to buy while on lunch break. Are our thoughts about what we need, or about what may never even happen, not leaving enough room for the positive loving thoughts that we truly need.
We have so many thoughts each day; the majority of them could be doom and gloom. We have so much to contend with fearful thoughts racing through our minds it’s a full time job keeping up with them. Why do we think about fear rather than loving thoughts mainly? Lets stop to think about how to turn it around.
Are we even aware that we can be mindful or thought conscious? Our thoughts are so powerful, and create our whole life. Do we wish to choose them, or are we even aware we have the choice?
When we step into our minds it’s a very clear indication of who we are and how we flow. Its vital that we learn how to do this and learn to master our thoughts before our thoughts master us.
What I feel is the most important thought of the day and what I say the moment I wake up is “Thank You God”. This thank you covers so much for me and God knows what that means. I am so grateful for all I have experienced in life and how I have come from feeling like a victim to celebrating victory. You know, the main part of my journey has been to listen to my thoughts all of them. My thoughts about myself and about how I see and experience the world.
I have learned to be grateful for everything and each moment that takes me to that peaceful thought and then beautiful balance and wonderful experiences I can create by just being in a place of gratitude and happiness. Its a blessing to forgive the people who have hurt us and leaving us with peace of mind not a mind filled with resentment. We all have the choice. When we are grateful we are not at dis ease in our body and not creating disease. I know how important it is to be grateful when we are healing our bodies.
I used to live my life at such a fast pace in fear of the unknown and not really being conscious of everything or in the flow and wonder of life and all I really have. Today I focus daily on what I have in my life that I love and what I am grateful for. I keep a gratitude journal and I write in it and I love to reflect on moments that I have forgotten about which is sheer joy! Learning to be grateful for everything, that first breath I take in the morning and that first thought, has brought me to a place of pride, peace and love for me and everything I experience. It creates more beauty in my life and I can see how by taking the time each to set my intentions for what I desire and for being grateful for all that I love has taught me grace and gratitude.
It’s wonderful to write it all down and keep a gratitude journal. The more love and gratitude you feel the more you realise the abundance you have in your life the more joy you will feel each moment you wake daily. How we think truly affects our health, our cells and our healing. Its vital to always tell yourself how much you love yourself and your body. Its so healing.
Do you wake up each day dreading your day or do you choose to be mindful of everything you have been blessed with and choose love grace gratitude and peace of mind to guide you through your day, bringing so much joy with it on the way.
If we can wake up and say to God how can I serve you today, rather than what do I need today, it shifts your life into new loving dimensions and helps to grow your self love and worth each day.
One thought at a time, one day at a time, one beautiful experience at a time to create the life of your dreams. Choosing to be grateful and learning to give really does create a day of loving and receiving all life has to offer in wonderful ways.
Since I have learnt to be grateful for the smallest things in life it has humbled me and taught me the greatest lessons of my life.
Wishing you all a gorgeous day filled with everything your hearts desire. One thought at a time, one moment at a time.
