Taking a walk in our beautiful countryside is one way of having time to think about all the things you are grateful for – big and small. Admiring the flowers and the shades of green across the fields is amazing. The gently breeze and the bright sunshine lifts the spirits and makes the day feel so special.
The different types of majestic trees, the sound of the birds singing and the rugged pathway through the countryside – it’s there for all of us to enjoy, when we take a moment to get out there and make the most of the day.
I am so thankful for today, it is a new day, sunny, friendly, embracing. I woke up with a smile on my face. I am grateful for everyone that cares about me, spends time with me, remembers me. I send out thanks into the world today for simply being here.
I looked around the room and didn’t recognise anyone. It was strange going somewhere and not knowing who was going to attend. Chatting away to strangers can be so interesting and enlightening and takes you away from the things on your mind and gives you a welcome break from the worries of the world.
So many stories of life and sharing your own one puts things back into perspective. I realised as I was reflecting on the day, that Gratitude had been standing right next to me, my old friend was supporting me, as I felt thankful for the day and for the people I had met.
I am so grateful for everyone I have ever met, they have helped to shape me to be who I am and where I am now. The challenges and triumphs have been stepping stones in life and I am sure ahead there will be many more.
So just for today, remember gratitude is right next to you too – remember to be grateful for all the special moments in your life, the joy of friendship, the joy that animals can bring into your life and the joy of Spring flowers, sparkling in the sunlight and shedding a golden glow out into the garden.
So many ways to be thankful for a new day. A fresh and bright day waiting to be filled with new thoughts, ideas and thankfulness.
As yet, unwritten, the adventures of you stepping gently through the present, being in the moment.
Being peaceful for a moment, simply being. Noticing so many things you don’t normally notice. Drinking up the nectar of gratitude for this time.
Be who you are today and in being, take a moment to be peaceful and thankful.
The smell of the leaves on the grass and the feel of coolness in the air, makes me feel happy it’s Autumn. There is something so special with the different seasons we have in the UK. They all offer something different in the garden and out and about when we are off walking.
The fruits of the season now, the lovely crisp apples, the last of the pears and the vegetables in the garden patch, so grateful for all of them.
Even the mist in the morning, creates a mystery about the day ahead. A lovely crunchy frost, that lights up the world and reminds us that Christmas is not far away now!
Indulging in some relaxation for the end of November
December coming soon now
Giving season is nearly upon us
Reminding us of things we need to do and actions to take
Taking in the tunes for the big day
Under the Xmas tree deciding the colours for this year
Enjoying it all.
Being grateful for this time of year.
Like a tuning fork, tuning up an instrument, it helps to tune up for gratitude.
Get on the best frequency possible so all the great gratitude waves roll towards you today. Be sure to send out lots of grateful thoughts for all your blessings in your life and let your day tune into the positive energy as it abounds around you.
For all those who have gone before us and leave us with a legacy of life and living.
Today I am so grateful for all of them. Thank you.
The call last night to say ‘thank you’ for your present for her birthday – you were so pleased that she liked the gift.
Your friend who insisted on paying for lunch the other day – for the help you had given her with her recent house move.
The smile and thanks you received when you picked up a scarf someone had dropped and rushed after them to give it back.
Allow more gratitude to come to you as you give more thanks out each day.
As you wake up and your feet touch the floor – be thankful for the new day. It is a clean sheet of paper ready for you to write some great things on.
As you eat your breakfast, be thankful for what you have and where you are today.
As you go about your daily routines, be thankful for them, they get you going each day.
As you come to the end of the day, reflect on all that was great today, say them to yourself, shout them out, write them down. Be thankful for all that was good for you today.
Just before you go to sleep – be grateful for your day and count your blessings.
