Oh The Goodness!!!

Celebrating Life

I usually think of gratitude as what good did I do and/or share today, this week, this month, or even this year! I feel good in doing good and giving back. I become more aware of the big picture instead of just focusing in on the details. I feel that I give more of myself to others, especially through inspiration and encouragement!

Be Thankful!

I really try to give thanks more than once a year! I also try not to give thankless thank you’s to others. I want to give thanks from a place of love, kindness and compassion! I also want to give thanks for not only the successes, but the challenges due to the lessons learned and the growth experienced.

The Big 3 Questions To Ask Yourself

  1. What Good Did I Do/Share?
  2. I Give Thanks for . . .
  3. I Am Grateful for . . .

There are times the focus is on being on “OVER” everything and anything! The pressure, tension and stress kicks in. I get down on myself or hard on myself. It makes me want to have one heck of a pity party for myself!


Then I just think and reflect about how much good there is in my life! I need to revel in the joy and the happiness. I need to acknowledge the thankfulness and the gratefulness in my life. I need to be celebrating that and MORE!

The Biggest, Baddest Question To Ask Yourself

  • What Am I Taking For Granted . . .
  • How Can I Turn That Into Gratitude!

I know I can complain and woe is me all I want, but it really does not achieve any real results!

I need to be spending my time and my energy on the good and the positive! I need to work on communicating, interacting and connecting better with my greatest someone and greatest someones. I need to learn how to give and how to receive with grace, kindness and most of all love!

Growing . . . Connecting . . .

The Final 2 Questions

  • How can I be more open and accept the opportunities, the changes and the challenges in my life?
  • How can I be more appreciative and thankful for the lessons, the growth and the experiences?

I know I do not put my full potential out there some days! I know I do not stretch my comfort zone enough. I am working on being more open and putting myself out there more! I am trying to learn and grow from the changes and challenges that I experience in my life.

It is a process and a learning experience to become more aware, be more mindful and just have more gratitude when it comes to living the life I WANT!
