If you have been in one of my yoga classes you may recognize that we always end our class in gratitude, reflecting on the blessings that are in our life.
Living a life full of gratitude and recognizing the blessings that surround us each and every day can be a powerful positive force within our lives.
It builds our expectations that good things will happen if we open our eyes and heart to see them. It also helps us to find the good in times that are challenging.
This picture of out beautiful granddaughter, Gaia Love, makes me smile every time I look at it. The picture and her name are an inspiration to me to find the blessings, beauty and fun in our lives every single day.
Sometimes blessings come in the shape of a funny crown & scepter that just makes you laugh. Other days your blessing may be the stranger who lets you go ahead in line because you were in a hurry and they had time to wait. Or the friend who looked you in the eye and said, “But how are you really?” and was willing to take time to listen. The beautiful sunset, the striking red cardinal at the bird feeder, the smell of lavender. The list can go on and on, if we stop and take the time to listen and look for blessings that come our way every day.
Fostering a spirit of gratitude is a TNT (Tiny, New, Tangible) Healthy Year habit that gives back to you in abundance. I have attached a beautiful 6 minute video that was recently shared with me by my friends at Inspire Yoga Studio. I hope you will take a moment to watch.
