I know the feeling! Some changes that I want to happen in my life seem to be taking FOREVER! Oh yes, I do need to be patient but I also know that embracing GRATITUDE will help me to be more patient and attract more of what I want in my life! My daughter Carina has taught me how important Gratitude is. Carina moved to Haiti at the young age of 18, right after high school graduation. She chose to leave her comfortable home with clean running water, a comfy bed, ceiling fans and an ample supply of food for a third world country with cold bucket showers, a bunk bed on a roof, lots of mosquitoes and not much food. Since I can only handle a week in Haiti at one time, I studied how Carina survives, even thrives in Haiti and realize that Gratitude is a tool she uses repeatedly. Carina tells me about the sunflower that just bloomed, the neighbor who cooked them some yummy rice and beans, a person who donated bunk beds for kids sleeping on the floor, a parent from the HEART school who brought Carina tea when she had a sore throat and many more stories each time I talk to or receive a message from Carina.
I have re-committed myself to keeping a gratitude journal and writing at least 8 things each evening that I am grateful for. Have you ever kept a gratitude journal?
Let us know what you experience and learn!
Have a great day!
