Song in my Spirit: Lamar Capbell – I Really Am Grateful (Link Below)
Lord, I don’t thank you enough, but I really am grateful!
Thankful: For Life. For Love. For Family. For people who believe in you and those who don’t. For a successful career year. For expansion. For insights, concepts and ideas.
Reading: Girls with Swords by Lisa Bevere | Data Mining for the Masses by Dr. Matt North. I am so happy that I achieved one of my main Career Goals for the year. Certificate go soon come!
Watching: TED Talks – lots and lots. Particularly this one that taught me that I can do anything I want to do. I always considered myself artistically challenged, but look at what I drew. O_O
I can draw. 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁 How magical! We limit ourselves with what we think we can or can’t do. I’m not Michelangelo (yet), but I can tell a damn good story and draw characters too. How did I learn? I’m in training and the consultant played a TED Talk at the beginning of the class. Title: Why People Believe They Can’t Draw and how to prove they can by Graham Shaw. Find it. Test it. 😁😁😁😠 Get to it! #Lifestyle #PositiveVibes #TheAlaroro
Listening: to the I Can’t Stop Spending (ICSS) Podcast. I feel like I have never had this challenge with spending. Do you know what the greatest weight on my spending is? Giving. I will talk about this someday.
Eating: everything I see. Tough truth: being the partner of someone who is fit in every sense of the word is so tough. Lol. It is easy to find yourself wondering if you are the right fit! There are so many fit-couples out there and it is easy to get… lost.
Worrying: about the wedding. A few months to go, yannah! Answering questions as simple as “What do you want?”
Believing: that Blessed is she that believes, for there shall be a performance of those things that were spoken unto her.
Loving: My Man. It is easy to get distracted with all this prep talk and lose focus
Connecting: with the BBN Wonderland bribes. 30+ of the most amazing women. BellaNaija gave me a network that I am already grateful for. No one is an island. Go out there, connect. You need people.
Stunned: by Hlengiwe Ntohmbela‘s ministry. Is there anything more beautiful than worship? True, pure and sweet worship?
After a long year of struggle, I am glad to say: it’s over. We even celebrated with cupcakes. November is a blessed month for me because it was on November 23 that I hit publish on my first post and December 2nd is my birthday. I am trying to make being thankful a conscious habit and I think you should too.
To actively practice being thankful, you can download an app like a Gratitude Journal: This one is available on the iStore and this one for Android devices or this one that lets you input images, also for Android devices.
Be thankful, today and always.
