Hi y’all, it’s me, Hope and I have to send out a little Hopeservations message of gratitude to all my loved ones and the Universe!
So here is a thought for today…
It is November 28th and our entire nation is giving thanks on this day…and I am no different! I am incredibly grateful and thankful for all my blessings and even the blessings that come to me in a backwards manner. Only not everyone looks a life in a similar manner!
After all, on this day, does that mean concern about an outcome or event goes away?
No – not usually…however, allow this day to be a catalyst to effect the direction of your thoughts.
I can not change yesterday but I can take charge of today! Right here, right now! I have the ability for setting a new course of direction for my life and continue to be thankful for all that is good in my life!
It can be hard to imagine being thankful for the unplanned and unexpected life event that in the moment may give cause for concern or create a major complication that appears or even is life altering.
It is at these times, we have to refocus and reframe our thoughts to reach a level of peace and acceptance…and yes, even gratitude!
Easier said then done right?
To remain thankful, peace filled and accepting in the face of a situation that appears and FEELS overwhelming!
How do we do this?
1. FOCUS ON FAITH
By trusting that there is a higher plan at work! There has to be a time to let go and trust that by accepting the circumstances of life with an unwavering faith, that good will come your way!
2. TRUST THE FACTS
Time and again, life has proven that by adopting a flexible attitude and surrendering to the flow of life’s unplanned twists and turns, these events become the eventual unexpected gifts too.
To say I am GRATEFUL and THANKFUL to those events in my own life would be an understatement!
All too often gratitude is not expressed. Yet when it is given a voice, the effect is transcending! Practice the expression of gratitude. Observe the effect it has on yourself and others.
On this day, I hope all are able to put aside their own troubles or fears about events or outcomes in exchange for a grateful heart with the faith that answers will reveal themselves and sustain the good!
“In ordinary life, we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.”
– Dietrich Bonhoeffer
So today, I extend my GRATITUDE and THANKS for the BLESSINGS of the present moment to everyone near and far…for your part in making me smile and feel more special in this Universe then I already do!
If the love we give and receive are our riches then I am indeed a RICH woman!
