Sometimes we can’t see the solution because we’re staring too hard at the problem.
Napoleon Hill was right when he said: ‘Energy flows where attention goes.’
So what are you focused on?
Notice if you’re focusing on what you DON’T want instead of what you DO want.
Maybe you’re complaining about lack of, instead of counting your blessings? Or could you be trying to control people or situations with how you think they SHOULD be, instead of accepting how they really are?
It’s hard to admit that sometimes WE are the ones closing all the doors and building walls in our way…but sometimes we do this by default without even realising.
Today, open the blinds and gaze out of the window. Allow the light to flow in.
It takes a simple shift in perspective to appreciate all that you see. There is ALWAYS another way.
It’s there. Even if it doesn’t always feel that way… The good. It’s everywhere.
Sometimes we’re too in our head, caught in our dramas or those of another, and the beauty is missed.
Today, find the good…
That gentle reassuring touch; a familiar smile; butter melting on warm toast; tea in your favourite mug; fresh sheets; song birds in the morning; silly dancing to your favourite tune; watching the sunset at the end of a long day; taking your next breath and exhaling deeply with a smile…
Don’t let moments like these pass you by, for they may never come to pass again.
I’ve long believed in the power of gratitude. There’s a reason great spiritual teachers and philosophers teach gratitude as the cornerstone to lasting success and fulfilment. Simply put – it works.
I’ve been a little quiet on here lately, searching for (and furnishing) a new home takes time, and of course money.
After missing out on a few houses in a competitive rental market, yesterday we were finally accepted for a home that suits all our needs. I feel we can put this down to remaining grateful that we already currently have a place to stay, rather than feeling disappointed each time we missed out.
‘Gratitude turns what we don’t have into enough.’
Gratitude raises our vibration to one of love and places us in a prime position to receive. This was confirmed to me while on my evening walk last night. I looked down to find a neatly folded $50 note. There was no one else in sight. I whispered a quiet ‘thank you’ for the reminder that we live in an abundant Universe.
Today I am grateful for a new home, for unexpected gifts and for loved ones near and far.
As some of you may know, I was recently on a mission to obtain votes to attend the Hay House Sydney Writers Workshop event. Whilst I didn’t quite receive enough, one entrant managed to obtain 750 votes, and I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the very worthy winner! You rock lady!
I knew it would be a big effort with my small, (yet growing) following. And whilst some may be left feeling despondent, I can’t help but smile and say ‘Thank you!’
I faced my fears and uploaded my first ever video to social media platforms promoting my book and message. This is a huge step for me. I feel much more comfortable communicating in the written form. Despite cringing at my attempts, I did it. Yey!
My wish was to spread more love and connection, and I received nothing but that in response to my video. Thanks to friends sharing and spreading the word, I have formed beautiful new connections across my writing platforms.
My faith in a loving Universe was proven. I was both amazed and humbled by the love and support offered from friends and strangers alike. I am still so very grateful for each and every one of you who took the time to vote.
I believe in Divine timing. The stars may not have aligned this time, but I have every faith that something wonderful is waiting just around the corner. And the same goes for you!
Here’s to facing our fears, following our dreams and counting our blessings! Life is far too magical and wonderful to be anything but grateful.
Blessed are those with an attitude of gratitude. Grateful hearts have the ability to turn a meal into a feast, ‘not enough’ into plenty, a small fortune into acres of diamonds, a fleeting moment into an eternity… Simply put, when we are grateful our lives become abundant with blessings.
It’s easy for us to be grateful when life is flowing beautifully; money is in the bank, we find the perfect parking spot, the lights are on green and we feel a sense of belonging. But when life is challenging, when we receive unexpected bad news, our dreams have been dashed, there isn’t enough to cover the bills and they don’t love us back – the words ‘thank you’ don’t come so easily. It is during these times we must take stock of our lives and recognise all that is good, even if we must begin first with the basics; food on the table, shelter, clean water, good health… Can you walk, talk and see the beauty that surrounds you? Can you hear the music that stirs your soul? Can you love, dream and create? Give thanks for all of that, for gratitude possesses the transformative power to turn even the darkest moments into light.
Each day we get to choose how we experience life, it is a simple shift in perspective from one of lack to one of abundance. Each day is a gift when we recognise, and give thanks for its many blessings. So today, say thank you! For ‘if the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.’
