WHAT ARE YOUR FIVE THINGS OF YESTERDAY YOU CAN BE GRATEFUL FOR?

Every day is fully worth to be grateful for April 1, 2011

Today the day came to put an end to this blog. One year ago, I started it rather as an exercise and experiment – can you really inspire people through your example? Out of the replies I got throughout the year, I would say yes, you can. Though only you, my blog’s readers – the ones who were next to me in this exercise of gratitude (heartily thank you all!) and the ones who might land here from now on – only you can really tell. I sure hope (and believe) the answer is positive! 🙂

I planned this exercise from the beginning to last one year. (I can’t believe one year has passed already!) I learned some valuable things through it: about myself, about people, about blogging and about gratitude. And for sure I enhanced my discipline and perseverance, which is not a little thing, related to my values.

I am more decided than ever to continue my daily practice of gratitude – it is healing, it is working, it is love :). I am more inspired than ever to strongly recommend you to practice it also: every night when you go to bed and put your head on the pillow, just think: what can I be grateful for of what happened today? And let those good, honey-like feelings caress your heart. If you do continue to do this even for a short while, you’ll be amazed to realize more and more how many apparently insignificant things that happened made you feel good – appreciated, loved (by the ones around or by yourself), valuable and so on.

I wish your choice of gratitude to quickly overwhelm your life with only rich, meaningful experiences! And reality proves this is what always happens. Best of luck! 😉

 

Yesterday’s bliss

The five things of yesterday I am most grateful for:

– the perfect, spotless skied summer day filling us with light

– taking the time to sunbathe in the morning
– managing to somehow raise my energy to levels suitable for working – and making good progress with Mobineer’s communication
– the big bowl of loquat fruits we picked from a tree on no-one’s-land nearby = feast of free, organic fresh food
– going to bed on time, another victory on my path to sharp, uninterrupted discipline

For the day-out Saturday,my heart is full of gratitude for:

– finally, going out to picnic and excursion on perfect, fresh sun day

– the fantabulous green mayo-like dip we had with fresh vegetables for lunch
– spending hours on the beach, just abandoning myself to the sand and sun
– remembering why I felt sooo good in vacations with my parents in my childhood – and committing to do my best for my family’s harmony, bonds and joy
