Hello there. I don’t know about you but time is really whizzing by. Tomorrow we will enter June and be half way through the year. It’s insane – I know.
May has been a challenging month for me on the work front. But hey, I got through it and let me tell you when life gives you lemons, get the vodka or tequila out. Challenges and obstacles gives you an opportunity to take stock of your life and to get a new perspective on things.
Reflecting back on the past four weeks, so much has happened. Looking back at the month that was, collating what happened, all I can say is; I need to count my blessings. I can tell you now not every day is a good day but there is something to be grateful for in every day.
We’ve come to the end of yet another month. April was another busy month; scrambling to meet deadlines and to get everything done. In saying that, it was an amazing month filled with lots of holidays which of course constitutes to spending time with family and friends.
Before I get started, let’s just recap why I’ve started this series. I started my first gratitude journal in March. Journaling what I’m grateful for gives me a new perspective on what is important in my life and the things I appreciate and am thankful for.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. – Melody Beattie
It is time for me to take a moment to step back and reflect on the month that was and the things that I am grateful for. (more…)
We are fast approaching the end of March. It’s also the end of the first school term and almost Easter.
Huh! How is this possible? Didn’t we just celebrate Christmas the other day. Time really waits on no one.
I’ve decided to do a monthly segment on what I am grateful for. Yes I know it sounds kind of cheesy. But you see cultivating an attitude of gratitude is so important.
We often only reflect on what we are grateful for around celebratory days like Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. Life is not always easy and as humans when caught up in the negativity of what life throws at us, we forget that we have so much to be thankful for.
