Today's Valentine Challenge/Gratitude

Thursday, January 17, 2013

The assignment today is to think about somebody, living or not, who has impacted me in a positive way during my life and write a note to them. Even if that person is living I do not (or probably won't be able) have to send the note, just acknowleged them and be aware of why they impacted me.

This is a very positive exercise. The more folks I think of the less bad comes to mind. I think this is something I will put on my goal list to do at least 1x per week.

Meanwhile, I cut out more flowers last night for my dream board. I think we get to go to town today so I'll drop by the dollar store for poster board. I also plan to get flowers for myself (yesterday's Valentine challenge). Some of the flowers in my bouquet will be dedicated to those who help make me a stronger, better person.

(((gentle hugs, friends))) Each one of you is a work of art!

    What a great assignment you had today. I think it is an important thing to acknowledge those that have positively impacted our lives; far too often it is easier to get focused on those that had a negative impact.

What a beautiful idea of putting flowers in the background for your dream board!

    I made my 1st dream board in my late 50's. I thought it was kinda silly but I was out of work and I thought why not. Mostly it was of me getting married again(I had been alone for 3 yrs) Needless to say I met my husband about a month later and we got married. So you never know..Even at my age! emoticon

    Let me just say. THANK YOU! Your words are confirmation of what the Spirit has been preaching to me as of late, "practice the virtue of gratitude, not just once in a while but all day long. What a lovely jester to add flowers to your gratitude bouquet. It appears you are artistic. My own artistic talents bring me much joy.
