Living alone on the top of what I affectionately call, “Mud Hill” with 2 dogs, 1 old cat and my horse waiting for me down at the arena is my choice, my desire, my blessing.
November just became reality, the month of giving thanks and it feels right that the first thing to be grateful for is oneself.
This is new thinking for some people, like me, in the past. Grateful for myself? For my life choices? For what I have, what I’ve created, earned, stumbled into through luck or divine design?
Much simpler to focus on the external, the sunrise for instance. It’s so beautiful, or the forest, or dogs, who can ever not be thankful for dogs? And that they accept us, love us and let us be so completely authentic when around them?
But today, as we embark on a month of giving thanks (at least a day of it anyway) I want to ask you some questions. Of course, I do!
Are you grateful for yourself? Your essence, your spirit, your completely unique personality?
What if today you were?
Zig Ziglar once said in, ‘Better Than Good: Creating A Life You Can’t-Wait To Live’.
“Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap.”
So today can you be grateful for yourself? All of you, even the bits and parts you normally put down or hide?
It’s a great way to start thanksgiving month, just being grateful for oneself. Let me know how it goes for you!
