We’re always trying to get there, to make it!
So much self help is focused on teaching us how to help ourselves to more.
Get more. Have more. Earn more.
Maybe we could use a bit of help learning how to feel good about what we have.
What we have.
And not for any other reason than to feel good right now.
Call it gratitude.
Gratitude has become another puffy word, like the words authentic and love.
We toss these words up and fumble to catch them.
Why have they become so hard to hold, gently?
Could we let them sit within our grasp without squeezing so tight and slipping out of our hands?
I invite you to hold gratitude with both hands, with your thoughts, with your BOD and be still. Carry it. See it. Feel it.
Bring it up closer to you. Take a breath.
Maybe you’ve missed something.
Maybe you’ve been out there looking for more when there already exists so much more within you.
Feel grateful not because you’ve learned that doing this will work to bring more to you (though it might), and not because it makes you a good person (though it pretty much could), and not because feeling grateful is a strategy to change your energetic vibration (although it pretty much will).
Don’t feel grateful simply because you wanna ” make something happen”.
Feel grateful because it can illuminate the parts of you and your life that you may have overlooked
(due to all the wanting).
Feel grateful because this moment matters just as much as your next, just as much as 6 months from now, just as much as when you do have the right boyfriend, enough money, perfect abs, a promotion.
This moment is happening. It’s your life.
Be in it.
You and your life are worth Celebrating just as is.
You have made it! Here.
You are already here.
