I'm going to make today's blog short and sweet. Pretty nifty for a writer who's so long-winded, right?
I hope I can convey this ‘new theory' through the written word — I thought of videoing an interpretive dance for you but that would probably be more confusing. So here it goes…
I've discovered a new level to gratitude.
“I feel like this new ‘being grateful for no particular reason' is a bold step in my conscious evolution. It's the anticipation of great things to come instead of the worry about what might go wrong (which actually brings that into being).”
I've been practicing gratitude whenever I can and even in the most strange circumstances. Take for instance my recent loss of income streams from all different avenues — normally this would have freaked the old Cherie out completely but the new Cherie is simply loving it!
Okay, how can I love having money and security taken away from me?
New Adventures, New Directions
I've assigned my life with new meaning. You know how life is meaningless (as in neutral until you assign it either positive or negative meaning)? Well, I've decided and really FELT like the Universe is redirecting me big time and it couldn't have come at a better time.
I was actually getting quite bored with the Ground Hog day my life was becoming, so, this breath of fresh new adventurous air is a God send (he he…literally).
I won't lie, I'm still in the throes of the transition but I'm injecting fricking gratitude into every moment. I can't wait to see what's coming and I can just feel it's going to be awesome.
I am already starting to experience the new opportunities and contacts coming in and — from my vantage point — I'm super excited.
I feel like this new ‘being grateful for no particular reason' is a bold step in my conscious evolution. It's the anticipation of great things to come instead of the worry about what might go wrong (which actually brings that into being).
I'm starting a whole new way of thinking and using gratitude to boost it. I hope you join me on this journey. So, even when things look pretty shitty — try to see the Universe offering you something even better, more exciting and tailor-made to suit your soul.
