When I was in my late 20's and early 30's I needed some guidance, I was feeling lost and needed direction, and not to feel so bad about myself or my life. I have always been an Oprah fan and I have brought some things up about her before, but Oprah put be in the direction of Sarah Ban Breathnach and Iyanla Vanzant and I can tell you both of these women and their teachings have helped me through some rough times and to overcome some rough obstacles.
One of the things I did was create a gratitude journal, at first it was hard to see all of the blessings in my life but each day got easier because I now believe any kindness someone shows us something to be grateful for, so that is what I want to talk about today 5 things I am grateful for:
1. Having a great lead driver who is considerate and kind who has given me great advice.
2. Having wonderful vendors that I purchase beads from who understand about life getting in the way.
3. Wonderful friends!
4. My health!
5. My family!
Have you tuned into Iyanla's new show on OWN, Iyanla Fix My Life! I love Iyanla's approach to counseling, she helps you to figure out your roll in a situation and how you can own it and your actions. A huge lesson, it is always so easier to blame others but the hard truth is sometimes staring right at you in the mirror. She also encourages loving ourselves and how important that is in our goal of having a love fulfilled life.
What are you grateful for today? I would love to hear all about it!
