Day 47: Commitment to Practice Gratitude
I’ve seen how crazy I’ve made my life by putting my focus in the wrong places. My perspective of thinking the worst of people, being constantly let down by the actions of others, blaming, shaming, and judging were all symptoms of a much larger problem. I was living in the perspective of lack. I felt lack, I thought in terms of lack, I acted out of lack, and I reacted from a place of lack. I projected lack, manifested lack, and I reflected more lack back into my life. I got a lack of respect, lack of good friends, lack of money, lack of people who care, lack of support, lack of compassion, lack of positive circumstances, lack of appreciation, etc. When I realized what I was doing and accepted the consequences of my choices by seeing how chaotic my life had become, I realized that I had a choice to do things differently.
Though, I’m finding myself with more to be grateful for now, I’m committing to gratitude in a bigger way. I’m not going to just think about it in passing thoughts. I’m fully committing to focusing on gratitude. Everyday, I’m committing to write a list of at least five things I’m grateful for. My challenge to myself is not repeating the same items within the week. My first goal is to do this for 45-days straight.
There is so much good happening within my life, in nature, and around the world. I want to really start actively engaging in the mission to see more good. I want my energy aligned with the life I want to be living.
Day 1 of committing to my gratitude practice:
- I’m so incredibly grateful for the vibrant colors found in nature
- I’m so happy and grateful to have a family who loves and supports me
- I’m grateful to have positive people in my life
- I’m so grateful for the ability to improve my life by a change in thought
- I’m grateful for the oxygen producing trees
With Love and Gratitude,
A Better Me
