Terrífico Tuesday- Gratitude

Submitted by on April 6, 2010 - 2:30 pm

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”

William Arthur Ward

Over that past couple of weeks I have had a lot on my mind, both personal and professional. By last Friday I felt completely overwhelmed. You see, like many of you, there are things in my life that are out of my control. Lately, however I had been feeling like most everything was out of my control. (I am a planner, so not knowing if or how something was going to pan out would normally drive me nuts. Well, it was driving me nuts last week). The other day a friend of mine reminded me of the movie The Secret, which not only have I seen, but I own. She mentioned the story of the man with the gratitude rock. This man kept a simple little stone in his pocket and each time he felt it he would think of something that he was grateful for. I’ve been carrying that notion with me for the past few days and I feel so much better. I am continually reminding myself what I am grateful for, (people and things like my beautiful home, my safe, reliable car, my loving pet…). In doing so I am much calmer about the things over which I have no control and I am feeling a sense of abundance, not lack or uncertainty. Today I am going to purchase a little stone to keep in my pocket. In addition to being reminded to feel gratitude, I am going to express it. People need to know that they are appreciated. It’s silly that we think highly of someone and don’t share it with them. So let me start by thanking you all, once again, for joining me on this endeavor. I am grateful for each and every one of you.

Please share your gratitude for your friends, family and loved ones today, and everyday.

    Hi Ana. I just checked my email regarding giveaway Thursday and there you are on my tv in an episode of Outdoor Room! 🙂 I have a rule…I only buy fitness dvd’s that are set outdoors. The beautiful scenery keeps me motivated. Arizona, especially, is one of my favorite places (my photo is from my last trip there) and Core Challenge is on my wishlist!

Leave a comment below, thank you!
