A friend and I have been sharing our gratitude emails for maybe eight months. And, yes, our miracles are constantly unfolding. By changing our vibration to a higher level through gratitude--gratitude that is written down and shared--we each have had major breakthroughs in life. Now, our gratitude emails are not always written just right nor are they about everything glorious. They are real but with a twist of appreciation that comes with changing your perspective on things that come into your life.
Truly, give it a try. Get the book and find a friend who will commit to doing this with you for at least 40 days. Enjoy your miracles!
Gratitude Goes a Long Way in Expressing Yourself
Now, openly expressing your negative feelings doesn’t mean you should go around putting others down and it also doesn’t mean finger wagging or accusing. Instead, find a more constructive way to get things off your chest. You might find it’s best for you to write your feelings down, wait a day or so, review your email for tone, and send them off in an e-mail. If you have the creative ability, write a poem or a song about your feelings. Whatever you do, focus on the problem, not the person. After all, we all make mistakes!
It has been a couple of months since I was last in touch, and I miss connecting with y'all.
I've found that we all want so many of the same things: to feel good about life, to feel healthy, to feel abundance in its many dimensions, to feel purpose in life, to love and be loved, and to feel a release from past traumas.
You see, I've been down with one health issue after another for two months and just wan't experiencing these things.
Turned out to be nothing life threatening nor incurable. But I wasn't so sure when I was in the midst of the struggles.
Remember that I'm living a new life in Malaysia? I still love it, but I certainly wasn't familiar with the healthcare system here. I am now.
Turns out, I found a great specialist and support team who could diagnose the problem and help repair it. I got the help I needed from them and from supportive friends and family. Could not have done it without them! So grateful.
It was just a few months ago (before I got sick) that I was lying on a massage table here in Penang, and, as the young Cambodian masseuse worked on my back and shoulders, I had this overwhelming urge to be grateful for my body.
Yes, for my body.
Now, this might seem a usual thing that you do, but it had never occurred to me to do this before.
I had just been listening to a discussion about how without our health, we really can't do anything else like we'd like to do. I'd heard that before and had nodded (yawned?) in agreement. And, continued to take my (sacred) body for granted.
But this time was different.
