Boy, can you believe we are already into the second half of the year? Just the other day a friend of mine called me who I hadn’t spoken to for a few months. Both of us had been busy with life in general so our regular coffee or phone catch up had been postponed. We both asked the other “so, what’s been happening?” After hearing how her little baby just turned one and is walking along with a variety of other fabulous updates it was my turn.
I mentioned how hubby and I had headed off at Easter for a trip in our campervan, I had been to Cairns for work, a trip to Perth to spend time with the family and then what had been happening on the work front I realized the last few months had passed by very quickly.
Once I got off the phone I sat down and started to make a list of all the fabulous things that I had done over the last 6 months. It was quite amazing when you start listing all the wonderful things you get to do in life, the opportunities that present themselves, the fabulous people you get to connect with. Sometimes we get so caught up in the rush it is hard to see the wood for the trees. You get so caught up that you forget to take the time to appreciate all the wonder that makes up your daily life.
I have decided that every three months I am going to create a gratitude list. A list of all the wonderful experiences, opportunities and people I am grateful to have connected with. It is amazing how lucky and truly blessed we are to have all this experience.
Do you have a gratitude list? Have you thought about creating a gratitude list? I would love to hear what you are grateful for in your life.
