Creative Nudge Fridays is here!
Welcome to nudge #18. In one word = ta.
An attitude of gratitude is positively self-illuminating. When we bring to light what we are thankful for, our whole self shines that much brighter, including our creative spirit. Holding on to the energy of what we don't have or want, or what we haven't got yet, invites in more of that energy. More of what you don't have or want! Appreciating what is in your life right now, creates fertile ground for more of the same. More of what you do appreciate.
Here is a nudge for creating more fertile ground for what you are truly thankful for. See the love in the little things today. Whatever that may be for you. It might be what you already notice in your everyday happenings, perhaps it's something you would otherwise passby or maybe it's something new for you. When you come across it, allow yourself to pause for a moment. Pay attention to it. Breathe it in. Give thanks quietly or aloud. If you feel inclined, for the next week make note of three things you are grateful for at the end of each day. Write it in your journal or if you don't have one already, you might wish to start a gratitude journal, a place for gathering daily notes for all that you are thankful for.
A note, this nudge is especially useful if you think there is nothing or little to be grateful for in your life right now. When you cultivate an attitude of gratitude it becomes more easeful to see love daily on your path.
Shining the light on what you are thankful for, lights the love already with + within you.
To remind yourself that an attitude of gratitude invites in more easeful flow on all levels, take a photo of one (or more!) things you are thankful for, then use the pic as your screen saver or wallpaper on your phone or computer.
I'd love to see your ta moments!
