February 20, 2010

Today I am Grateful for:

Positivity. As I was cleaning out my studio the other day I came across a book in my files called Life is Tremendous. The author claims our conversations are 99.9% negative. I didn't believe it at first but I started to listen to people that I know speak and there was a lot of negative in just normal conversation. I am grateful to have that pointed out to me and I am making an effort to hear what is coming out of MY mouth and to redirect the way I am feeling and thinking about things in a more positive way.

Spiritual Progress. I am so grateful for my spirituality and the progress I am making on a daily basis. I know I am where I am suppose to be today. But to me, I feel like I boarded the boat just before it left port.

My Creativity. I am grateful for how much I have and recognizing that I have so much that is untapped.

Being Kind. Sometimes it is a challenge to be that way, but I continue to start and end my day with kindness. It can sooth the savage beast in the worst of situations.


  1. Word are powerful and I am going to try and watch mine as well. It does make a difference.

    have a happy saturday.


  2. I can relate to the challenge of being kind...especially to others who are being unkind. It takes LOTS of practice for me. I so appreciate the reminder.

  3. Afraid I am guilty of negative speak. I need to start watching that.

  4. Always wear a life jacket (in our case, an AA meeting).

    Love & tolerance is our code. Remember that, David.

  5. Hey Gary!!

    Good reminder. I am appalled sometimes at the things I hear coming out of [my] and other's mouths. I try to speak thoughtfully and mindfully....and that helps.

    Hey, come on by EB..I have an award for you!!

  6. I like the idea of starting and ending the day with kindness.
