I found another blog/forum about being inspired called: http://beinspiredtoday.ning.com where a lovely lady called Julieanne has obviously spent a lot of time and effort gathering information and aquaintances to help inspire people. This is the post I read today:
"We all know about the power of Gratitude but sometimes in the hustle
and bustle we forget to be in a state of gratitude.
Gratitude brings us out of a feeling of lack and changes our
perspective on the world around us. It is a gentle process that can
shift you in a matter of minutes.
I thought it might be fun to have somewhere to 'put it out there'.
Just choose 5 things that you are grateful for today.
Today I am grateful for
the music I am listening to
the warm weather
knowing that I am loved
... and my dishwasher ;)
I feel better already :)
Hope to hear what everyone else is grateful for :)
Good place to start!
Gratitude is the first step to raising your self esteem in many ways,
it reminds us of what and who we have around us. It reminds us we're
not alone and we're not failing no matter what is happening in our
lives. Every one of us can remember something from our past that
seemed bad at the time but on reflection led us to a better place. We
may have broken up with a partner and been devastated only to find a
new love further down the road. We must look back on those experiences with gratitude for they make us who we are today.
If you're going through a tough time right now it's almost impossible to see that this very thing you are going through will lead you to something positive further along in your life.
Find the strength, hope and resilience to
persevere - you'll be glad you did. :)
