Feel The Feeling of Gratitude! (A note from the road)

  

In case you haven’t noticed; I’ve been gone for awhile!  I’ve been on vacation but have no fear I’ve been thinking of you often while on my journey. 

As we have been trekking along our path through the South, I’ve remained ever so grateful. We have much to be grateful for- I have much to be grateful for. I’m grateful for YOU and the fact that you are reading my words at this very moment. I’m grateful for the future.  I’m grateful for being grateful. lol. Seems too much? I don’t think so….being grateful for being grateful is something I am very aware of; its a feeling I am addicted to.  It’s all about living in the moment and feeling the feeling of gratitude! When I think about being grateful, and become aware of my ability to BE grateful, and to choose Gratitude- it magnifies the feeling of gratitude! It AMPS up the vibrations! 

It’s awesome! 

So feel the feeling of your gratitude!  And be grateful that it’s the choice you made!

There Once Was a Grandpa

There once was a grandpa who took his grandson to town. He started off by letting his grandson ride atop his donkey. As they walked to town some people passed by and said “how terrible of that boy to ride and let the old man walk!” The grandpa heard this and took the boy off the donkey and he rode the donkey while the boy walked. A few minutes later some people passed by and said ” how terrible of that old man to make that boy walk while he rides the donkey!”  The grandpa heard this and pulled the boy up on the donkey with him and they both rode to town together on the donkey.  A few minutes later a couple passed by and said ” how cruel to make that donkey carry the weight of you both!”  By the time the grandpa and grandson reached town they were carrying the donkey!

Moral of the story ~ You can’t please everyone all the time! Don’t try! Live your own life, run your own race. If you spend all of your time trying to please others you will miss the glory that is life!  And in the end…they will not be happy and you will not be happy! So be happy!  And let others be responsible for their own happiness!

 

It IS Coming Along! I Wanted To Share With YOU! xx

Gratitude-It’s A Lifestyle

Here is the first Unedited paragraph….. I have 3 of my proposed 14 chapters finished!

Can I tell you that I have started this book at least 4 times? It never seemed right, it was always missing something. So I began again, and I begin yet again. But this time I feel it is different, I feel a certain humbleness that may have been missing in my past attempts; I think I can feel the hand of God on me now as I write these words…..something is different. And I say that with a humbleness and in awe of Him and quite frankly…you. I’m humbled by the sheer mass that I know you are, you are not one, you are many, and that is awe inspiring. The amount of people I see, every day, which are making a shift today towards living a more spiritual, or at least a kinder, life is staggering! It is awe inspiring; and it fills me with hope!

I have made a renewed commitment, to myself and my God, to not be a house divided any longer. I am devoted to getting on paper that which I have spent years studying! I have waited a long time to get to this point; so here I AM!  And I am excited!!

It may take me a while to finish, because I do have to sell a house here or there……but finish it I will! <3

Thank you for reading…..
