Awareness and Gratitude


Life  seems to pass by  us so quickly  and  we are all so busy  in our everyday lives that we sometimes forget to stop for a moment  and take a look  around to see what is going on all  around us. I  want to talk to you today  about awareness and gratitude because from having  various conversations with my  friends I realised that I was not very aware of things so I decided to set myself a challenge for 30 days I would email a friend every day telling her what I was aware of.

When I first started doing the challenge  I was not sure if I would find things to be aware of. It made me think  some days it was little things like I  was aware that a butterfly flew past me, that my favourite word is flutterbye. The challenge made me stop and  think and it made me aware of things like I was not a great sleeper, I fidget a lot, I can’t sit still for a long, I drink far  too much caffeine, I don’t drink enough water during the day I could go on the list is endless as there are so many things to be aware of  so much so  that I write of journal of everything that I am aware on a daily basis.

I have discovered that gratitude and awareness go side by side  as you will find that you are aware for being grateful for something  like being grateful for  hearing the  birds sing or even that you are grateful for your imagination or that you are grateful for having great friends. It is days when things are not going the way it should that you should stop what you are doing and think about what you are either aware of or what you are grateful as  it will change a day that is not going well into a better  and a positive day for you.
