Right now I’m sitting on the porch of a cabin my family rents every year in the Sierra’s. It’s quiet, peaceful, beautiful, and relaxing. And boy did I need it after my last few weeks. And as I was getting all ready to post this post, my internet stopped working. And I became frustrated. And angry. And like “GREAT! OF COURSE! When I’m trying to post my freaking gratitude post, THIS happens. UGH!!!!” So I had to find a different option. Another computer, and here I am. No pictures at this time since my iphone won’t synch with this other person’s computer, but if you wanna see what I’ve been up to this week, check out my FB page where all my pics are posted. http://facebook.com/xosallyhope.

Gratitude…here we come!

It’s so easy to be in our heads and think about how much things ARE NOT going the way we want, or focusing on things we DON’T have. So…I’ve decided, that at least once a week, on Fridays, we should all take a minute to focus on things that ARE going well. Things we’re grateful for. I’ll be putting together a list of things that I love. That I’m grateful for. Or happy about. All from this week. I’ll go, then YOU go. Leave a comment on the blog with some of the things you’re grateful for RIGHT NOW.

When al ele fails…and especially when you don’t want to…Try gratitude.

Here goes…

I’m grateful for:

Gentle nudges in directions I should go but don’t feel like it. Bernardo Mendez. Inspiring people. The lake. The smell of the forest. Time off to think. Driving. Campfires and s’mores. Boat rides. Working outside. My loving and supportive family and friends. Teachers that show up in my life to help me grow. An expanding heart even when I’m upset, angry, and scared. Cowboy hats. Intellectually stimulating conversations. Serendipity. Notes of encouragement. Fresh picked flowers. Laughter. Friendship bracelets. Creativity. My Coach. Beauty, everywhere. My clients. Growth. Realizations. YOU.

I am leaving the internet for the rest of the day. Notice where I am. And really BE here. Have a great day.

Ok…now YOU go!
