Gratitude Ignited My Flame

Gratitude quote by A. Schweitzer

When I feel the sun kiss my face; I am grateful, every single time. 

Eating creamy, vanilla based ice cream, with chocolate sprinkles, I am grateful. 

Waking in a heated house in a warm bed, I am grateful.

Hearing baby pitter patter as they hustle to and from, or their laughter and toddler chatter, my heart swells with love and I am grateful.

Being in the chaos of my family gatherings, children everywhere, laughter and connection abound, my heart is full of love and I am grateful. 

Spinach… there is just something about you I really love. 

Meeting a friend for lunch, I am grateful. 

Grateful for celebrity crushes that make me smile, giving a lightness to the day. 

Lady bugs all over… where did they even come from? But keep coming you beautiful creatures. 

Love how I start my day with morning pages and workout routine, it sets me up for success.

The crispness in the air. 

Nutella crescents. Haven’t tried? Totally missing out…. Just saying 

Macy (my dog) greeting me, giving me a doggy hug that lasts forever and Mojo (my cat) snuggling on my lap purring, pure, unconditional love. Heart overflowing with love. 

Yoga, moving my body gently, powerfully, twisting, stretching, constricting, balancing… the challenge of new poses and maintaining deep breath

Having a gratitude journal…. This changed my life. Writing my gratitude re-programmed how I viewed the world; from negative to positive. With my focus on looking for experiences, anything to be grateful for, I found a lot. I started to see positive experiences everywhere. I started to find myself more playful. I love my gratitude practice. It opened my eyes and expanded my life. I am grateful and I am filled with love for everything, including, and most importantly, for myself.
