I decided to do a blog several days ago, but thought what is there of great importance to write, like probably so many people. Thursday’s Child for a title immediately came to me, but as the early bird gets the worm, that title was taken, thus “athursdayschild.” Thursday’s child, my original choice, has far to go has always been true for me. Late bloomer, a second choice, was already taken.
One of the first things I do in the morning is meditate. That is a hit and miss thing for me, but I’ve found that even trying makes a difference. Bodily functions, aches, pains (this week a cold), gets in the way along with what they call those monkey thoughts. But over the years I’ve found that persistent practice, as in anything, pays off. Even with those monkey thoughts an “ah ha” idea creeps in. In this case it was to actually begin the blog today and in what direction to take it.
I regularly keep a gratitude journal, which I actually refer to as a thankful journal. Life is mainly perception. Our thoughts control everything; therefore, in my mind it is better to have the thoughts of a half full glass rather than a half empty one. Being thankful is a lifestyle just as eating right or exercising is. Practice makes all the difference.
So, this blog is mainly to be about what I have to be thankful for.
I’m thankful that this morning I decided to dust off my juicer. I enjoyed a triple jolt of celery, carrot, and apple juice, along with grapes (all organic) for breakfast. The remains go into to the compost pile.
Anyone reading this is welcome to post something in comments that you are thankful for.
