Day 54 and 62 of 365 Days of Gratitude


Day 54 and 62 of 365 Days of Gratitude

Goodbye summer, summer time, warm witty wordsOooops! Do you ever have weeks that just slip by? That’s just happened to me and the reason I haven’t yet posted the latest days of gratitude. That’s eight days you’ll read about now.

Day 54 I am grateful for:

A flock of parrots flying overhead, because they are crazy raucous, but it’s wonderful to see so many happily flying in their flocks. They are like a colourful Spirograph moving across the cyan sky.

Day 55 I am grateful for:

It’s Friday, because it’s the start of the weekend (I need not say more).

Day 56 I am grateful for:

A day of reading in cool water in the shade, because this has been one hot, humid summer (not that I’m complaining because I love Summer).

Day 57 I am grateful for:

Music, because it changes moods, makes you reminisce, makes you sing and makes you smile.

Day 58 I am grateful for:

A morning of writing with my dog at my feet, because there’s nothing more comforting than the silent companionship of a dog.

Day 59 I am grateful for:

A cooler night’s sleep, because I have no hot flashes and the temperature has dropped. No fan, no aircon and a blissful dream-filled sleep.

Day 60 I am grateful for:

Boxing so hard my knuckles ache, because I know I’m hitting harder and getting stronger. (Yes, I even have bruises).

Day 61 I am grateful for:

Footy is back, because I’ve grown up with NRL and I think my team will win this year. Go the Roosters!

Day 62 I am grateful for:

The fresh smell of early morning, because it’s the start of a new day and some people don’t get to have a new day.

Have you been noting what you’re grateful for? Why not have a go at it? You can find one thing in a day, or one thing in a week, or one thing in a month.

You’ll find that you’ll discover more and more wonderful things that make you smile. You’ll feel happier, because the negativity is diminished  for positive thoughts. It’s not just a fun exercise to try it will truly change your life. Be grateful and enjoy your life more.
