Gratitude

Today as I was reading the blog posts from everyone I noticed a theme of sorts.It was gratitude and life. Now for me gratitude is life and life is gratitude.Not sure if all this is related to the start of the holidays or the fact that a dear friend of our ola family is going through a rough physical time or maybe a combination of. So the rest of my post today is taken from a blog I had started a long time ago some of you have read it some will have forgotten about it and for some it is brand new.This is a challenge for everyone who is willing to at least try it.:)

FAST START TIP TO A MORE POSITIVE YOU
To see the fastest change in your life,use gratitude to shift your thought energy.When you pull all your energy into seeing and feeling gratitude,you will see miracles start taking place in your life everyday.
To change quickly commit to writing 100 things you are grateful for each day,until you see the change.And feel the gratitude.Your power is going to be in the FEELING that you put into the words of gratitude.
An example of this is I would write down I am grateful for the sunshine, now as I am writing and reading that one sentence I would FEEL the sun-feel the warmth on my skin.
If I write that I am grateful for my coffee I would feel the warm cup in my hands,visually taste the coffee as I sip from my cup.Again the power is in the FEELING.Have fun with this it will take practice but ohhh so worth it to move toward a more joyous,positive life!
So to pick up from the last post about writing a gratitude list,we are going to start seeing changes in ourselves and what we focus on. You will almost automatically without conscious thought be spending more time focusing on the things you appreciate in your life. You start focusing on the things you already have that bring you joy or that you enjoy doing,and you find yourself giving less energy and focus to the things in your life that are stressful.
This tiny little shift in balance if done everyday will quickly and easily turn the tides in your favor.As you start easing up on the things in your life that are stressful or wrong and shift your focus more to the things that are right in your life,that you are grateful for ,you will see that the wrong things in your life start to fade away giving you room to receive more of the things you enjoy. It is only a little shift in our mindset but it can be one of the most difficult for us to do,we are breaking a mental habit after all that has been there for decades!
If we do this everyday, like pushing something down a hill ,at first it is slow but then it speeds up and gains momentum it will lead to better and better days.You will realize that your life has taken on a new direction -one of peace,happiness,joy,prosperity and positivity.
As you see yourself as a positive person so does the world. Remember the Law of Attraction states that like attracts like. Positive will attract more Positive . You can no longer lose!One more question to ponder How many miracles have you seen  or heard of today?

I was looking out the window, waiting for my tea to steep, when your blog post started steeping, too. I found myself being thankful for chickens of all things. I love watching them hunt and peck, and listening to them crow and coo. I'm also grateful for this mug of orange spice tea and good friends who have the grace to not call me crazy to my face.

Very well said!! There are a lot of things that we should be grateful for . . . . simple things, everyday things. For life. Thank you for reminding us.

I know you are not our average bear Yogi.....you are our amazing bear. This blog is just so positive and so up beat, how can anyone stay negative with friends like you. Everyday I thank God for all I have and for all the friends I have and I say a prayer for them. I do not know what will happen today but I thank Him for it anyway and ask that I learn from it.
