I started this post with the intention of saying….today was just a day. Then I took a pause and realised how reductionist that is! Of course today is not just a day! I got to wake up in a comfy bed, next to an amazing man, go to a job that provides a stable in come and come home to enjoy some glorious sunshine. So even though nothing necessarily gob smacking happened today, I am still grateful for being here and able to experience it!
Rocking the gratitude attitude hardcore today! 🙂
In the past I have placed a lot of focus on the things (and people) that I don’t have in my life, but all of sudden I have realised the people I have always wanted to know, and develop friendships with, have slowly been creeping up on me.
This was highlighted to be by Jen Sincero who talks amazingly about manifestation in her book You are a Badass (that I am now on my second reading of in 6 days btw!). I have come to realise that it REALLY is all about what you send out into that big wide world! Whether you are into the spiritual, cosmic, devine…or whatever you want to call it….I think this book is one that everyone should read for a kick in the butt!
Since the start of my self lover journey a few months ago I have at least 3 people that have come into my life who I would without doubt call kindred spirits. We are all on the same self discovery path, are open to new experiences and ideas and just bloody well get along!
To have met these people at such a pivotal time for me has been extremely rewarding, and faith instilling that I am on the right track and the universe is picking up what I’m putting down! 🙂
For me there is no greater value than having someone (or someones) who just get you and allow you to be yourself no matter what, with no expectations, judgement or pressure.
So today I am thankful for:
- Receiving loving kindness from a new colleague in a moment of need
- New friends
- Ben & Jerry’s ice cream (Cause its 30 degrees so why not!)
- Having more money left in my bank account than I expected at the end of the week (thank you universe!)
- Learning a new skill for meditation from a new awesome yogi friend
I hope to meet many more kindred spirits throughout the rest of my journey, and wish the same for you!
Until next time xx
