Daily Gratitude

Gratitude is the key to creating a joy-filled and abundant life. Giving heartfelt thanks for everything that has been provided to you will increase your appreciation for your life and help you cultivate a mind-set of abundance that will take root and blossom in your life.

Create a daily ritual that will enable you to express gratitude for your life. You may want to consider a daily practice of writing 3-5 things you consider gifts, blessings, or life lessons in a journal or notebook. Try to include something new each day.

Thirty-Day Challenge:

Begin and end each day in gratitude.  It will transform the way you experience your day and your life.

Be Intentional

PowerPoint Presentation

*Downloadable worksheet at the end of the post.

The word intention comes from the Latin word intendere, which means to “stretch out”, “to extend”. Intention inspires vision and guides action.

To be intentional is to be willing to stretch yourself and grow. It is a process of stepping into your power, clarifying your vision, and consistently moving forward on your path. Do you know where you would like to be in the next three months?  Six months?  One year? Here is a quick way to get started.

Spend some time this week thinking about and visualizing where you would like to be in the next three months (or whatever timeframe works best for you).  Get clear as to what you would like to change, why you would like to make a change, and how you plan to make it happen.

I invite you to create a powerful intention to pull you forward. State what you intend to accomplish within a specific timeframe.

I intend to _____________________________

Based on this intention, I commit to taking the following actions:

1.  ___________________________________

2.  ___________________________________

3.  ___________________________________

If there is a gap between your intention and action, see it as an opportunity for personal growth rather than a personal failing; recommit to your intention and begin again. Consider using images and/or symbols as a visual reminder of your desired outcome.

Living from the Inside Out

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”

Carl Jung

Are you living from the outside in? Do you feel disconnected from your true self and power within? 

A new way of living begins when you choose to live from the heart and guidance within.  Your heart is your spiritual core, center of truth, inner compass, and guide to living your highest potential.

You invoke the wisdom of your heart when you ask yourself questions like “What is true for me?”  “What is true about my life?” “What do I value most in my life?” “What is best for my life?” Your heart intuitively knows the answers.

Take the first step:

Be still. Be quiet. Be open to inner guidance.

Thirty-Day Challenge:

Take time each day to listen to the wisdom of your own heart.

  • Commit to 15-20 minutes of daily silence.
