Week 14 – Tis The Season To Be Grateful

grateful-heart-blog-itsoverflowingWeek 14 came and went way too quickly with the holidays.  I will be honest and admit  that I didn’t keep up with the daily assignments as faithfully as usual but am back on track to move forward in this journey to become my future self and live my dream.

One of the new requirements is writing down what we are grateful for.  I find that I really appreciate the opportunity to sit down and perform this task.   This is not an exercise that I’ve ever done, though I do give thanks for many of  life’s experiences on a regular basis.  This exercise really makes me sit down and think about my life, where I’ve been, what I’ve accomplished, what I have and what is truly important to me to give thanks and be grateful for.  I realize that I have an abundance of things to be extremely grateful for and have been blessed throughout this life with good people and experiences.    I would not be the person that I am today if I had not gone through the good and bad times throughout the years.  I am very lucky to have had such a strong foundation of friends and family help me through the tough times and see the growth in me, as a person, by surviving and becoming a stronger, more courageous person.   Writing down the little things in life that I’ve taken for granted is also eye opening and an exercise worth performing.  Reading the Giving and Receiving Cards daily and this exercise  made me realize that I have not given enough  back to others who are less fortunate and I plan to change that in the future.

It is going to take one step at a time to complete this journey and I ask for continued strength and courage to keep going until I have truly become my future self.

    It’s working Linda. All those small exercises have a cumulative effect. I suppose most of us take ourselves for granted and don’t think about all the little (and some big) things we really deserve to feel proud about. Og says it- we are nature’s greatest miracles.
