Do you still find yourself thinking crap, no matter how much you practice your affirmations and your thanksgiving?
I know I find toxic thoughts surfacing daily in my head, thoughts like “I need to make more money” or “I’ve got to work harder at my house cleaning” or “I should be doing …” .
The real truth is that you and I have a true purpose, and it has nothing in common with those thoughts that roll around in our heads like crazed hamsters.
Our true purpose is to find joy, and to experience it, and to share it.
The so-called reality that we experience every day has very little joy, very little happiness, very little wonder. These however, are the building blocks we need to use to create our honest, joyful place on this planet.
Where do you find joy, wonder, happiness that overflows?
I find a lot of gratitude in my garden, whether it’s the flowerbeds, the vegetable patch, the pots of mixed flowers and veggies on the porch, or in the blackberry bushes that line our driveway. There’s always something amazing, new, or beautiful going on out there.
Another great source of happiness is my bird feeder on the porch. Watching the antics of the family of Downy woodpeckers as the young ones figure out how to climb straight up or down the strings that hold the suet blocks is always good for a laugh!
Find your wellspring of wonder and unleash your gratitude! Help those beautiful thoughts on their way into the atmosphere and remember that truly “We are ALL in this together! We can heal those hurts, together.
Have a marvelous day today!
