The Holidays are upon us and with the hustle and bustle of this time of year; it is also a time of reflection. We reflect upon what was accomplished, what wasn’t, what we want to achieve in the coming year and even some possible future envisioning of where we want to go. However, how much time is spent on appreciation? When was the last time you spent any amount of your time counting your blessings?

While this time of year is generally spent on planning and reflection, why not make some time to show appreciation? What are you grateful for? I’ll start:

I am grateful for:

The air I breathe
The sun in the sky
The stars and moon at night
The crispness in the air
The body in which I get to enjoy it all
The wonderful body that knows how to keep itself healthy
My beautiful children
My loving family
My wonderful husband who loves me for who I am
My growing circle of friends and acquaintances
The abundance all around me
My continued growth and expansion
My connection to my Inner Goddess and Source
My fantastic coach
The professional associations that I am now a member of and all the opportunities that membership will bring
The radio shows I have done
The business connections I continue to make
The opportunities that are before me

And so much more……
As you can see, there is so much to be thankful for…so much to appreciate. Nothing raises your vibration more than the feeling of gratitude. Nothing fosters your connection to Source more than gratitude. Nothing fills your heart with such love and hope and joy. So, what does your list look like?

My coaches challenge to you:

Take some time to make a list of all that you have to be grateful for. I bet that if you really take some time to sit down and think about it, the size of your list will amaze you. Not only that, you’ll feel really, really good too!
