Gratitude is the key to abundance and prosperity. I must be thankful for what I have if I want to improve my life. I will appreciate, with all my heart and soul, every aspect of my life. I am receiving gifts from the universe every day. Every moments holds a blessing if I open my mind and my heart. Any time I feel a sense of lack I must remind myself that my life is abundant. The best way to do this is a gratitude list.
I will write out my gratitude list. I will include all the experiences I have had to make me the person I have become. I will list the people who have influenced my life. I will honor all of my life teachers. I will read it and reread it until I can feel the gratitude flowing through my body. As I feel the gratitude I will feed it with all the joy I have experienced. I will honor my gratitude by giving back. I will feel joy radiating from my soul as I give thanks to the Universe.
The universe is providing me with people in my life that are loving and kind. I will do everything I can to nurture these relationships. I deserve them.
I will send love out into the world. I will do this in my thoughts and my actions. I will treat the planet with kindness. When I think the best thoughts for the universe I create a world that is full of love and joy–more than enough for everyone to enjoy.
In honor of my 100th post I am turning this post over to Marianne Williamson:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of the universe. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of the universe that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
My faith in the universe grows stronger every day. I can feel it growing inside of me. I will take the time to enjoy the feeling and all it conveys. It will motivate me to attract great things in my life.
My dreams are becoming a reality day by day. I know that everything I seek is out there somewhere in the universe waiting for me to find it. I will learn how to open my eyes and listen. If I am still for just a moment, I can feel it. I will embrace the feeling of love and contentment that comes with faith in all things great and good.
Accomplishments grow over time, like seeds I plant in my garden. I will plant a flower and watch it grow. I will take note of my accomplishments as it blooms. I will see that from the time the flower is planted to the time it blooms I have accomplished many things.
In the course of the lifetime of a flower I can see great progress in my life. Over my own life I can see that many things have been accomplished. The best is yet to come. As I learn to learn, I learn to live. I will draw more wonderful things into my life every day. Every day I have many accomplishments of life, of love, and of spirit.
When I hurt my finger, I put on a band-aid. When I spill the milk I clean it up. I do the same with my life. When I am emotionally wounded, I seek out all the sources of healing that I have. I get on the phone and talk about how I feel with someone who I know to be a good listener.
I will celebrate the healing by doing something that I love doing. While I am doing it, I think about how much I love myself, that I deserve to do things that I love. I will take note of the joy that I feel as I do it. I will feel so much joy that all my thoughts will become joyful thoughts and my entire life will become loving, joyful and abundant.
I am worth knowing. I am interesting. I am passionate. I am kind and loving. I am human. I am a man. I am a child. I have feelings. Don’t hurt them.
I can tell if I like someone, by how I feel when I am around them. I will take the time to listen. If I like what I hear, I will stay. If not, I will go. I will surround myself with people I love being with.
