Want to live a fulfilled life? Make a gratitude list.

 

Years ago, I attended a Christian event and the guest speaker (I can’t remember his name, sorry) brought up the idea of a gratitude list. He said in order to live a happy, spiritual life, one must be grateful for everything, even the bad stuff. He went on to say that when our focus is on the blessings, we don’t focus on what we don’t have. What a brilliant concept and something I’ve tried to incorporate into my life.

 

So, with Thanksgiving only two days away, I want you to sit down and make a gratitude list. It can be as long or short as you’d like. Keep it somewhere handy where you can look at it at least once a day. Read it aloud or to yourself. Commit it to memory if possible. 

 

Need an example to get you rolling? Here is my current gratitude list:

 

I’m grateful to be alive and have a healthy body.

 

I’m grateful to have the love of my life, MR N, to share all of life’s ups and downs. No matter what happens, he’s my rock and I’m so grateful for his unconditional love.

 

I’m grateful for the love of my family and friends. They’re the flowers of life and make my day beautiful (most of the time). lol!

 

I’m grateful for my spiritual life. I feel connected to the world and God.

 

I’m grateful for my blog/books/social media followers. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

 

I’m grateful to live in a safe neighborhood where I can walk to the store, bank and dining out.

 

I’m grateful to share my writing with the world.

 

What’s on your gratitude list? Share one thing on your gratitude list below.

#ThursdayThoughts: In Stillness, We Find Our Peace #inspiration #meditation #prayer


peace

 

Are you at peace?

Being still and at peace is something I struggle with daily. My brain is constantly firing thoughts, ideas and criticisms. It’s hard for me to shut it off and quite frankly, it’s exhausting. So, when I saw this quote, it gave me pause.

When we are still, peace comes to us.

I find peace through meditation/prayer. I concentrate on my breathing and words of gratitude flow from my mouth.

Why is stillness important?

No one is the Tasmanian Devil. We can’t keep whirling around nonstop without consequences. We get tired, exhausted even, and need time to refuel/rest/replenish ourselves. Stillness through meditation/prayer allows our mind/body/soul to be refilled.

Today, take time to be still and peace will find you. Now repeat after me,

“I am grateful for…”

The Soul is Like a Beautiful Flower… #inspiration #spirituality #affirmations


healthy soul

Is your soul getting its daily nutrients?

We pay so much attention to our physical bodies, ensuring we maintain a healthy life. But what about our spiritual health?

Think of your favorite flower and imagine it is your soul.

What does your soul need to survive and flourish?

Nutrients and loving light.

Our souls are in desperate need of the same things. We need the Light , Love and Truth to grow and bloom. Without those things, we wither and die.

Take a close look at your spiritual health and do whatever you need to in order to make sure it’s healthy. Refresh, restore and rejuvenate your soul. You will be happier, healthier and more beautiful than all the flowers in the world!

Are You Exhausted and/or Dealing with #Fatigue? Listen to Your Body #inspiration #health


fatigue

Are you feeling fatigued and/or burned out?

I woke up feeling fatigued and exhausted. My lower back complained and pain rocked my body. I’m exhausted. My body is screaming for a break and I have no choice but to listen.

One of the ways I battle fatigue is to go for a walk. The fresh air rejuvenates my lungs and cleanses my soul. The music I listen to is filled with happy beats and lyrics.

Listen to your body and do something to refresh yourself.

I strongly recommend going for a walk or exercise. Empty your mind of all the to-do’s and stressors. Release it all and be in the moment.

Another recommendation is meditation/prayer. Be one with yourself and your spirituality. Let peace fill your body with every breath.

Our body knows what we need and when it’s fatigued, it is informing us it needs a check-up STAT!

Don’t ignore the symptoms but combat fatigue head-on! You’ll be feeling great in no time!

What do you do to deal with exhaustion and fatigue? Any tips to share would be much appreciated!

Pray for Me (MRS N) #meditation #prayer


Asking for help

I’m taking my own advice today and asking for help.

For the past week, I have been dealing with a horrible sinus infection. Normally, I can handle that. But this time, I have extra fun with nosebleeds. Every day, my nose (for whatever reason) starts bleeding non-stop.

I went to the doctor and he said it’s perfectly normal and I need time to heal. He offered surgery but I declined. I try to avoid surgery at all costs.

I strongly believe in the power of positive thinking and prayers/meditation. But I’m weak and in need of help.

Please pray/meditate that the nosebleeds stop permanently. Please pray/meditate for strength to return to my body. Please pray/meditate for my spirit to be boosted and for the smile to return to my face.

I thank you for listening and for standing with me in my time of need.

Share the Light and Keep the Flame Burning #inspiration #affirmations #spiritual


Light Candle

Do you know someone going through a hard time? Is the world around them crumbling?

Crank up the Light inside and bathe others in the glow. 

I have a friend of mine who’s going through a really hard time. She’s a fellow blogger, writer and social media maven. She (and her family) are under attack and she wrote a blog post update last night. It made me cry and I immediately went to work.

I put on my Supergirl cape, clasped my hands tightly together and prayed/meditated. I focused on the Light inside me and covered my friend and her family in a blanket of Light. I asked for the Universe to protect her and for the darkness to flee.

I then sent her a message telling her how much I loved her and that she’s not dealing with this battle alone. I’m with her and nothing can defeat her.

When people are in the pits of despair and darkness is all around them, they feel hope slipping away. That’s where we come in. We’re the Light Bearers and our flame needs to burn bright for them to see their way through the darkness.

Call up your friend/family member and tell them you’re with them in the darkness. Hold their hand, hug them, kiss them, do whatever it takes to let them know you care.

Let your flame burn through the darkness. Share the Light.

Everyone is on a Spiritual Path… #inspiration #spiritual #meditation


spiritual path

People talk about spirituality like it’s some quest. We’re not a character from Lord of the Rings, people. Every moment, from birth until death, is part of the spiritual path.

When I was in my early twenties, I was restless and felt like I was missing something. So, I tried to find my spiritual self. I experimented with all sorts of things and in the end, I learned there are several avenues to spirituality but they all lead to the same place: my spiritual path.

Are you searching for the Light? Look inside. You’re a carrier of the Light and all you have to do is let it shine. 

Everyone is on a spiritual path and there is no right or wrong way to find it. No matter what your spiritual belief may be, we are all carriers of the Light. Open yourself up to all that the Universe has in store for you.

The spiritual path is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path… most people just don’t know it yet.

What’s the Most Important Thing We Do in Our Lifetime? #inspiration #love #kindness

What’s the most important thing we do in our lifetime?

Love one another.

I’m a firm believer in the Golden Rule (treat others like you would like to be treated). I try to spread kindness and love to everyone I know, meet and interact with. I smile at the person who cuts me off in line. I love people who hate me. I encourage those who need it, even without them telling me.

Why do I do this?

I was taught from the time I was small to love everyone, no matter what. It didn’t matter if the person I loved reciprocated or deserved my love. I couldn’t control anyone but myself.

I’ve had friends come and go in my life. Even though they aren’t in my life anymore, I still love them.

I know what you’re thinking…

C’mon MRS N, nobody is that perfect! Don’t you get hurt or angry when people leave you or lash out at you?

Sure I do but that doesn’t mean I don’t love them. I’m human and I make mistakes. I cry and curse. But when the dust has settled and I meditate/pray about it, love comes pouring out of me. It’s who I am as a person, at my core.

What’s the most important thing you do in your lifetime?

In the end, nothing we do or say in our lifetime will matter as much as the way we have loved one another.

I love each of you who are reading this and I hope love surrounds you all the days of your life!

How healthy is your soul?

We pay so much attention to our physical bodies, ensuring we maintain a healthy life. But what about our spiritual health?

I love this quote by David Cunliffe! It’s so visual and true!

Think of your favorite flower and imagine it is your soul. What does your soul need to survive and flourish?

Nutrients and loving light.

Our souls are in desperate need of the same things. We need the Light , Love and Truth to grow and bloom. Without those things, we wither and die.

Take a close look at your spiritual health and do whatever you need to in order to make sure it’s healthy. Refresh, restore and rejuvenate your soul. You will be happier, healthier and more beautiful than all the flowers in the world!

Evil loves to steal your heart and your happiness.

Guard your heart and spread the Light!  For the Truth will set you free!!!
