Acknowledge Yourself with Gratitude

Hello fabulous you,

Something that I love to do is to slow down, pay attention and capture the moments of my days. So, for the month of May I signed up to do a free daily gratitude challenge with Alex Elle where the goal is just that, to create a practice for yourself that will capture the micro moments in your days.  Moments that we often overlook and unless we intentionally pay attention to them we may not see them.

Today when I sat down with my cup of tea and my journal ready to write, the only words of gratitude that burst out of me were words of gratefulness for me. 

From my gratitude journal:

I am grateful for ME!!!  I am grateful for being strong, powerful, resilient, opinionated, having strong values, always being curious to learn more, being compassionate.  I am grateful for being afraid and doing it anyway. I am grateful for never giving up, for falling down and getting up again and again. I am grateful for taking myself out of the prison I enclosed myself into, for breaking down walls I built around me. I am grateful for doing the inner work. I am grateful for forgiveness, for having an open heart, for loving myself and having the capacity to love others.  I am grateful for always looking for joy, for wonder, for miracles.  I am grateful for finding myself.  I am grateful for being my own advocate, for healing myself, for living wholeheartedly and holistically and loving myself unabashedly. I am grateful for my brilliant mind, for my body, for my stamina. I am grateful. I am grateful. I am grateful for ME!!!

Having a gratitude practice and also giving thanks to myself has changed my life . When you acknowledge yourself, you’re being a participant in your own experience, you’re showing up for yourself, you’re honoring your own actions. And it is in this way that you’re building a beautiful life.

I invite you today to take a moment and make a list, leave caution to the wind, just write down what comes to you without editing. What are you grateful to yourself about? you just may surprise yourself in delight.

      1. Then what’s stopping you??? ok I’m dishing out a little tough love here, the only one stopping you is you. A good question to ask yourself is, what’s standing in your way? Hope you do make time for you, you are important and worthy of your own self love, and once you start you’ll wonder what took you so long 🙂 xo

    1. Ohhhh Michele it will make a world of difference in how you feel throughout the day. And to keep it real, there are times I don’t journal every day and I can see a real difference when I don’t, even if you spend 10 minutes, set a timer you’ll be happy you did. Sending you journal love 🙂 xo
