Being Grateful

well, another week has rolled around.

I counted my blessings this week and tried to send out some Good Thoughts and Calm Serenity for those who were not as lucky as I.

I have clothing to wear and am able to choose what I like.
I have enough to eat- and am able to choose vegetarian.
I live in a part of the country that allows me to find healthy organic food around almost every corner.
I have a warm dry place to sleep.
I have a job I enjoy and work with people I like and have a great boss.
I am able to supplement that part time job by teaching art. Something I LOVE to do.
I am allowed to help people learn new skills or hone ones they already have.
I get to watch people get excited about the process and end results of their creativity.
I am beyond grateful every single minute that I have Imagination-Creativity-Artistic Skills.

There's at least another 20 or 30 but I'll leave it at this.
This last week I concentrated on just Being Grateful for my Abundance and tried not to allow
any thoughts of Lack in.

  1. Jami,
    I so appreciate your optimism and your ever-present sense of abundance. This was a wonderful post, and I'm going to copy the "Five Simple Rules of Happiness" and put them where I'll see them throughout the day.
    Thank you!
