Today is day 20 of my 21-day Gratitude Challenge. The assignment is to write a thank you note to myself for taking the time to stop and focus on all the little things for which I feel grateful.
My Dearest Hanna,
Thank you so much for making the commitment to focus on all the things you appreciate—not just for the past 20 days, but every day. Thank you for opening your heart to the gifts that are in this moment.
I am so grateful that you allowed this exercise to deepen your gratitude and awareness. To truly get that each moment is new—even though it appears through your limited senses exactly the same as the moment before. The clouds have shifted in the sky, never to have the same formation again. Each face on the planet has made a subtle shift reflecting who they are, where they have come from, and the thoughts they are thinking. Water is flowing, leaves are falling, birds, bugs, animals, and people are moving about. Each second is brand new.
I am so grateful for all the abundance that you see in the world. There is so much love, so many opportunities, so much joy, so much beauty, and so much gratitude that can be seen when you stop to look for it. Shifting your perspective from all the problems to all the gifts is truly a blessing for everyone. Thank you for appreciating this abundant planet.
I am so grateful for the shift you experienced in seeing others, your relationships, and yourself when you looked at them with eyes filled with love and appreciation. Each person is so incredibly unique and offers so much value to the world—even if they don’t know or believe it themselves. And this includes you.
I am so grateful that you took the time to share this journey with others so they might reflect on their own reasons to be grateful. Thank you for recognizing that touching another’s heart is an honor.
I am grateful that you connect all of this with All-That-Is and see the Divine in everyone and everything. Knowing—and acknowledging—that Source is the source of it all is the greatest gift.
You are so loved, adored, and appreciated!
Beautiful! Only by loving ourselves can we be truly open to all that life has to offer and to giving and receiving love with others. Thank you!
Thank you, David. You are the one I appreciate most! Love you!
