Happy November! November reminds me to be grateful for all of my blessings and honestly, there is so much to be grateful for in my life. I am also looking forward to Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays!! I love spending time with family and eating delicious food. I also love seeing the Christmas decorations starting to pop up at this time.
I went through quite a few changes in October, my house is undergoing renovations, and I announced my “And Now What” retreat to only have to postpone it because of said renovations. In addition to that, I lost my dog of 13 years. Losing my pet, was one of the hardest things my family and I had to go through. I’m sure all of my fellow pet owners understand. I am grateful we were able to spend Buddy’s last moments with him, thanking him for his love and devotion.
I also started to do some personal work in October by working on truly “letting go” of what is beyond my control. I had to accept that my house would not be ready in time for the retreat, so I accepted that and gained peace about postponing it.
I am grateful for the responses I received when I announced the retreat and I am grateful for everyone’s understanding that I have to postpone it.
I have to be honest, I struggle with gratitude at times, but this is definitely one area I intend to improve over the next few months. I will start with positive affirmations that start with thanking God for all that I have and all that I am. I will release preconceived notions of “should” and allow things to just “be”. I will work on accepting things and people as they are, no more, no less. I will also do more of what I love, being grateful for every opportunity to do so.
I want to take this moment to thank each of you for following me and taking the time to read my blog and like my posts, it means the world to me.
Who and what are your grateful for this month?
