Acknowledging... A Reflection

Today is a day of acknowledging.... I have been so wrapped up in so many things that I have stepped outside of myself for the past several weeks. I am very aware that I have not been acknowledging my inner spirit...my surrounding...my love..my hopes...my dreams. So, today, I am stepping back...back into myself...It has taken time to look at myself, because it has been difficult to see signs ....WHY? Well it seems that lately I have not been counting my blessings, but rather looking at what I believe is "lacking". Today I am looking deeper...and I am finding my blessings once again....They have been there just covered up by things that needed to be scraped off. I am aware that by looking at my blessings, by honoring them, I honor myself...I also know this will generate more and more to me as I happily go about my day today. So today, I acknowledge my abundance and joy... and the steps that I am taking so that they stay in the front of my life and fly on butterfly wings to me. That would be my wish for all who read this today also....When you are lost in the "lack" of ....try thinking of one thing that is a blessing...then two...then three...Return to your abundance and remember it and they will make your life joyful one small blessing at a time. And my question to you would be:
WHAT ONE SMALL BLESSING CAN YOU FOCUS ON TODAY?

Patti,
Nice to hear from you. I've often been reminded of the triple A theory.

Acknowledge
Acceptance
Action

Sounds like your going through that right now. Good for you! Life is about those ebbs and flows ya know.

Cheers
Lori

Gratitude takes many forms, among them...
A FEELING in the heart
An EXPRESSION in words
And a GIVING in return

Your Art and your HeART are ever present in these three realms.

Yeah...forgetting to acknowlege..and breathe saps us. I'm glad you're "acknowledging" now.

As for me, I've been focusing on that the last week and it's so therapeutic. So that's where my gratitude lies: my gratitude for the spirit in me that knows to acknowlege myself..and lovingly kicks me in the pants when I don't.
