INSPIRATIONS, GRATITUDE & SURPRISES
Yesterday it dawned on me that I haven’t done an “inspirations, gratitude & surprises” post in a long time. When I looked it up I was surprised to learn that I haven’t done one since day 146!!! What a slacker, huh?! I used to do them every Friday and then I just stopped. I think “happy posts” took over. Happy posts are great too but I miss reflecting on the things that make me feel inspired, grateful and surprised! So I am going to jump back in.
-What inspired me this week?-
Passion Pit music especially this song
this quote- “We always attract into our lives whatever we think about most, believe most strongly, expect on the deepest level, and imagine most vividly.” – Shakti Gawain
When I looked at a finished writing assignment and realized I was proud of myself. One foot in front of the other.
-What am I grateful for this week?-
My new living room rug. I mean it’s amazing huh??
That I live 3 blocks from the beach. Walking on the beach is such a great way to start the day and clear my head.
landing 3 new freelance clients!
I have said it before but I will say it again. I am so grateful for my girlfriends. Each one is a light in my life.
The Bri guy– he’s my best friend and my favorite human
-What surprised me this week?-
How much better I have gotten at sticking up for myself and speaking my truth.
this note I received from my friend Chantal-
I am so proud of the dreams, the journey and the wishes you have embarked upon when you started this blog, and all that you have come to accomplish. You have shared so much in these past few months with us; your readers, and inspired us each
step of the way. Not only by allowing us to see that through the intent of the action all is possible, but to always stay the course even when things look dim, dark and unachievable.
And that perhaps the lessons learned and greatest achievements came in the process not the finished result. I love you
