I woke up thinking about my life. There are so many things I want to do and in some ways may be sleeping on. I remembered the fact that life does not stop for anyone, and that everyday that goes by, I need to be sure to be my authentic self.
In some ways I felt like I was missing the mark, even though for the most part, life is quite good. I also thought about changes that I need to make, and maybe even a dream or two that if I was honest, seemed to be eluding me. “My perfect relationship, ok most happy relationship, am I in it? Look at the changes that need to be made. My new meditation center, it’s just a shell of what I would like it to be. So much potential in so many areas, this is not a test run this is my life!” Needless to say, in that moment, I was not feeling my best.
Then I opened up to a page from my newest, yet to be released book, that I completed at least a year ago. The page was talking about the power of being thankful. I started to feel a little better just reading it. So I decided to put my thankfulness into action. I started thanking God and the Universe for many things. Like my wonderful home, and my children being healthy. I was thankful for my business and being able to be self employed practically all of my life. I thought about all the incredible ways God has blessed me and how the Universe has saved me from what looked like oncoming disaster, so many times.
I was thankful for all my good times, wonderful life and experiences, for my family friends and children. And as far as my meditation center goes. Wow, I actually have one, and it is wonderful, and growing. “Build on it!” Is what I thought. And for the projects that I felt way behind on. I felt appreciation for them and new energy to move on them. I was reminded that this is an adventure. And in my personal life, it has been a great ride and will continue to be. I was back once again, removed from my temporary low. My exercise in being thankful paid off.
Peace and Blessings
