What are you thankful for? Does happiness make you thankful, or is it being thankful which makes you happy?
Yes, we are dealing with thankfulness today, there are so many things we can be thankful or grateful of, but we are so use to complaining that our instant reaction to life
is to moan and whine. I am talking to myself as much as to you
I've come to realise that every moment is a gift
. One we should be thankful for, this moment with all its opportunities and experiences is a given moment. Once it passes it will never again be that
moment, sure - a similar situation might come back around, but that original moment and opportunity has gone - whatever, life offers
to you in that moment go with it and enjoy it, take and shape it to your goals and life.
Sometimes, we are so busy, being busy
that we miss these moments of clarity
and opportunities to take action
. In all the rush and noise of the world changing and evolving around us, sometimes we just need to take a moment to STOP
. Just, stop, be still and listen
, it is in the silence that we are able to hear our thoughts from the subconscious, and be thankful that we are given such moments of quiet in all the noise.
So, is today just another day
in your life? for me, I will take today as a gift and not for granted. There was no surety I would wake up to see the sun, or feel the chill in the autumn air. And see the beauty in nature on display for my pleasure - free of charge. Today should NOT
be taken as any other day, dear readers, take the time today to just listen...
Hear music and laughter and the sounds of the world changing, from the changing seasons to the advances in technology and cultural acceptance. Be in the moment, and feel the wind on your skin, and the pulse of the blood through your veins bringing oxygen and nutrients to every faculty of your being.
Let everyone who you meet today be moved by your presence
, smile and the world will smile back at you. They say there is a law of attraction, what we put out is what we attract, so why not just for today
. Walk with surety and purpose
, speak with kindness and grace, love unconditionally, lend an empathic
ear, just listen without trying to find an answer, hug someone you have never met before and love yourself in the moment - JUST FOR TODAY BE THANKFUL!
Have yourselves an amazing day, come back and let me know how you spent your moment of silence today.
