Well, that’s MY 21 days up. What do I do now? Do I have a day of ingratitude or do I stay on track with joy in my heart?
The latter, OF COURSE!
I’ll be hanging around, liking your daily postings and posting more of my own. I’ll also be finding and sharing things that inspire me; no doubt some TED TALKS will be amongst that.
So, here goes, my final 3 reasons to be grateful in this cycle.
1. My greatest gratitude has to be for my family; those who had no choice and those who chose me. I’ve learned and grown from those who have loved and supported me.
2. Both “good” and “bad” life experiences have been, and continue to be, a blessing. I have never failed, I have never lost, I have always been on the path and each perceived mistake was merely a learning experience and an opportunity to reflect and grow.
3. Lastly, I am humbled and frankly flabbergasted by the willingness that others have shown to take my numerous ideas and projects seriously. I believe in what I do and it’s incredibly validating that others do too!
Thanks for joining this initiative…and thanks for caring to share your joy and positivity.
This ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE is destined to continue and I’m excited to see where it leads us.
WILL YOU JOIN ME IN THE 21 DAY CHALLENGE?
On the surface I seem fine but I am just like you, dealing with the challenges that come my way.
Life can be one struggle after another and you can begin to wonder why you bother.
Do you ever feel that you invest too much time and energy in people and activities where your efforts are unrecognised and, perhaps worse, taken for granted?
I don’t seek praise or validation but I do need to learn where best to focus my efforts.
In a bid to maximise my time and bring more positivity, I have been searching for inspiration online.
TED talks are consistently life affirming and there’s nothing better than pouring a glass of wine and settling down to catch a few of these talks on Netflix or YouTube.
One of the talks recently was about changing your perspective and refocusing by finding and acknowledging the positives, whilst letting go and not dwelling on the negatives.
So, in a bid to reprogram my mind, I will take the 21 Day Challenge. Apparantly, after 21 Days, this thinking will become automatic.
This is not to say that I’m a negative person, far from it, but I am like anyone else; when faced with a solid, constant barrage of challenges, I get exhausted and feel my motivation begin to drop.
So, here is what I will do:
Acknowledge and write down 3 reasons to be grateful – 21 Days
1 email or message of gratitude – 21Days
In addition, I will continue to watch TED Talks, spend time with people who Uplift me, focus on what is needed to move forward by assessing what it is I really need and prioritise positive thought over negative contemplation.
The great thing about this initiative is that even before writing down my first reason to be grateful, I am buzzing as I mentally begin to consider all the many wonderful people in my life.
Damn it, I have so much to be grateful for!
