From the seemingly tiniest of things (the last few of my roses, parked in a water glass right where I am currently sitting to write) to the really big things like….I got up feeling great this morning…my body responded with ease, my ears could delightfully take in my favorite music–my hands cooperated in fixing me a delicious cup of coffee with fresh cream—well, you get the picture.
Before my feet even touched the floor, there was a long list of things on the gratitude side of life.
Allowing ourselves to “see” what is around us literally, also opens our eyes to “see” what we normally can’t see.
A twinkle of a thought, a glimmer of an idea. Sharp eyes, a mind focused on the good things–opens our vision to see that which we long for.
It’s like our radar gets a tune-up each and every time we count up the good stuff. We find ourselves scoping the horizon, looking for the good:)) We see things with new eyes. Something small that perhaps would have been buried under a cloud filled mind, suddenly sparkles in the sun like a small chard of glass on the beach.
The aha moments are always there. Changing your focus through gratitude is what gives us the 20/20 vision to SEE them!
Same it goes for the evening. Ending a day with recounting all the goodness that spilled out onto your path in a thousand ways is a good note to end on. It sets the mind for dreaming and visioning all the inspirations our hearts can hold. Make it a game if you like. Try not to repeat the same things. Exercise your mind in noticing the gifts that were unique to that particular day that is now closing.
It is one day of your life, filled with gifts that boggle the mind, if we just take time to slow down and count ‘em.
Here’s tomorrow’s Gratitude Giveaway:))
