Popping on to share a few ways to express gratitude for and give support to the overlooked blessings in our lives and people in our world. (All links in my bio or on my blog)
A few weeks ago, I was feeling really frustrated and decided to shift my focus to gratitude.
I sat down and did one of my breathing techniques for 5 minutes.
Then I asked my angels “What do I need to be grateful for right now?”
This is what I wrote:
I am grateful for my health, my neighbors, the pocket doors in our house (funny!), our backyard, our clean house, watching movies with Matt, playing Twister with Simon and Isaak, good friends, family, my Mastermind For Success class, my breath, my pajamas (love them!), our library, wifi, the internet, learning how to manifest good things with more ease, my body, my time on earth, my connection to the Divine.
Wow! I felt a huge shift.
What stood out the most were the things like the pocket doors that I often overlook.
When we found this house, those doors made me feel fancy and unique. As I was closing one that day, I remembered how much I love having them. It was a simple moment of focusing on something I am grateful for and it immediately shifted my mood.
That shift helped me see the other things that were bothering me in a different light. When I tend to my vibration like this, a peaceful feeling comes over me and solutions appear.
Now it’s your turn! Try to find some often overlooked things in your life to express gratitude for over the next few days.
Enjoy how it feels.
I am aware that my list of things I get to express gratitude for in my life showcases my extreme privilege.
I always want the good things in my life, including time and money, to be shared as much as possible.
So, I am sharing a few ways to support people that often get overlooked in our communities and around the world.
Feminine Hygiene Drive – I never really thought about what it would be like to be homeless and to get your period until this last year. My group Conversation in Action has partnered with Dsquared Homes for the Homeless to help provide this for the local homeless community in the Phoenix area. You can donate here: Amazon Wish List or drop off at The Vintage Arcadia through Friday.
Adopt a Widow and Her Family for Christmas – Widows in Nigeria live on the absolute fringe of society and struggle to feed their children. My group Conversation in Action has partnered with Sunrise for Rural Dwellers to help provide food for the holidays and hopefully have enough left over to get a tractor for these women to begin to work the farmland that has been donated. You can learn about this project and donate here: WomenForWidows.com.
I am so grateful for our connection. I hope the rest of your week is filled with gratitude for all of your blessings including the overlooked ones.
