Thank You for Beautiful Life

I wanted to say a massive Thank You for my beautiful life, a wonderful one in a million Boyfriend, lovely home and an amazing garden, my great Auntie, also the way my Mum loved me when she was alive. Thank you for the sunshine and the weekends and for the superbird Mellow. Thank you for the little pleasures like coffees, nice dinners, drinks and comfy bed. Thank You for letting me be healthy. Thank you for all the nice people in my life. Thank you for my job that lets me earn the money. Thank you for all my blessings.

Gratitude list

I have a "grateful list" I say upon arising, before meals, before I go to sleep and any other time during the day that I see something beautiful or hear something beautiful and it reminds me of all I am grateful for. I am grateful for the abundance in my life. I am grateful for family and friends. I am grateful for my perfect health. I am grateful for financial security. I am grateful for spirituality. I am grateful for my intellect. This list is a simplified way to state what I am grateful for. As far as health - I project "perfect health" to the universe and since I have been doing this (several years now) my health has improved tremendously. I say "intellect" to represent a number of things I'm grateful for - it doesn't mean I think I'm smart but that I recognize the ability to reason, to think, to discern, to communicate, etc. I say "financial security" to embrace the fact that while I'm not rich by any means, I am ok with what I have. I make do just fine.
