I Appreciate These Past 41 Days – Day 41

41 Days FB group on wine barrelsToday is the last day of my 41-day challenge and I appreciate that! As part of my Facebook group on “41 Days of Appreciating Rampages,” I committed to blogging here for 41 days with photos. I am feeling quite good, now that the 41st day is here.

I started the Facebook group ten months ago and have done several rounds of “41 days.” After a break when I let myself get a bit too busy, I decided 41 days ago to be more deliberate through this blog on the next round of 41 days. I’m so glad I did! While this is not the end of my daily appreciation habit, there’s something about reaching the completion of something that feels really good. So today, I’m appreciating these past 41 days, the new blogs I’ve discovered from people commenting or liking my posts and most of all, the joy that comes from this daily practice of appreciating.

All are invited to join my Facebook group and post your joys as your inspiration leads you. There are some wonderful people in the group! I love them all and find reading their posts very uplifting.

I Appreciate Appreciating! – Day 25

TC-97452-MainIconToday I am appreciating that I can appreciate so many things, people and circumstances. It’s not always easy to find appreciation when stressed or through some unexpected, unwanted event, but I have done this practice for so long that it truly has become a habit. I can always find my way back to finding SOMETHING – anything – that’s positive in what may appear quite negative. And I really appreciate that!

Appreciation creates joy and joy is a great place to be!

Happy Birthday

Today is my birthday and already I’m so appreciative of the people in my life who have taken a small moment of their time to send me happy energy through Facebook, e-cards, texting and phone calls. I also am feeling blessed by the delicious cake that a colleague at work made and how everyone gathers around to sing “happy birthday” – even if they don’t stay in tune (hee hee).  The biggest surprise so far today has been this video message from ING DIRECT. What a great way to spread joy to their customers! Thank you so much.
