Day 183 of what? Glad you asked, my gratitude challenge! It’s the halfway point! ✨✨✨
I’m a little late today, but if I’m honest my day didn’t start off right. I am grateful for sleeping in even though it was not part of my plan, I think I needed the rest and I do feel rejuvenated. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Here’s my gratitude journal for today, with Otis’ help:
We went on our boat last night for the sunset and I am grateful for our boat because it’s fun being on the water and swimming, and spending time with my husband. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Here’s a moon flower that bloomed last night. Isn’t she pretty? I think so. ✨
As a reflection halfway point, I did go through a depression with the loss of my Scrappy and didn’t do much on this blog during that time. I still would wake up and think of one thing I was grateful for, but I didn’t do any mediation with it. And I think that’s completely fine. I know truly feel I can talk about him and it doesn’t mess up my day or mood. I look back with joy being able to have him in my life so long and I am so grateful for all the moments we had together. I do have to say how gratitude has changed my life in the most profound way and it made me more present, more alive. If you feel stuck in life, I suggest finding a gratitude book, a challenge, something to propel you into a routine of gratitude. Don’t beat yourself up if you miss a day either.
One of the more simpler daily practices is while you’re cooking or making something- think about how you’re grateful for every ingredient. How you’re grateful for the people who grew that ingredient from a seed or from an egg, and your grateful for the nourishment it gives to you and whoever you share your food with. It’s a simple practice I take the time to do every time I make dinner.
I also take an invisible shaker and pretend for real to shake love and magic into my meals. (You do you, it’s just how I add love to my meals.)
Sending lots of love- deep continual love to you! And of course light too! ✨✨✨
