Thoughts, Tips, Ideas and Tricks to live your best life
I just want to express a moment of gratitude. I woke up this morning made my coffee and went for a walk around the neighborhood. Its one of my favorite things to do, especially in the morning. Its such a wonderful way to start the day. I always let my mind wander during these walks, but today it was especially nice, maybe because I haven't done it in a while.
Today I was enjoying all the progress I have made over the years, I caught myself thinking of how grateful I was for all that has passed. There is a loop that I like to do around my neighborhood, and I will walk for many different reasons: because I want exercise, because I am confused about my life, and what to do; because I am sad; because I am angry; just to start the day... And on this walk today I was remembering all the different moments in my life: when I would have done anything to live in a different country (I didn't even care which country); when I have felt so angry and hopeless about my life, terrified and not understanding how the things I truly wanted would come; Trying to come up with a plan just to get me in a different position, particularly relating to my finances; when I was painfully waiting to hear back from the interview I went to for my dream job, which I now have...
Then I noticed myself thinking about all the wonderful things in my life. Each thought was grateful, and effortless - I was grateful for that! Typically feeling gratitude is something that requires effort for me (well in the past, maybe that has changed :)
In this moment as I'm typing, I am especially grateful for this blog. Today, when logging in, the viewer tracker said that I had 160 views for the week. I haven't told anybody about this blog. I haven't advertised.
---Well my business coach Rebecca knows. Because of her, I started this blog. Until one of our calls, I was so scared I just couldn't get myself to do it. And with her magical insight, coaching, and encouragement I started this bog.---
But no advertising, no talking about this, and I have 160 views! I think that is amazing. And its so satisfying to write, I feel heard, and less of a need to explain my point of view to others in conversation (only to be shut down). Some kind of shift happened, I am much more balanced. I am extreemely grateful for this feeling. And I would like to say thank you. I hope that you enjoy my thoughts. I hope that somethings on here are ideas that you have inorporated into your life, and now enjoy the benefits. Maybe you would love to have your own blog? Its really fun, you should try it out :)
Sending you hugs, Merry Christmas
I'm very passionate about a lot of things, often trying to incorporate all of it into my life!
