I am grateful for my 21st post in my gratitude journal, and what kind of a gratitude journal would this be without a plug for a “21 Days of Gratitude” event? (And yes, I waited to write about this event as my 21st post. That is how I roll. ;D  You can visit the event by clicking on the image below.)

20131031-233322.jpgGratitude opens our hearts and transforms our lives in the most positive way possible. It helps us connect more, love deeper, find happiness and joy each day, appreciate life, give more freely, and be able to learn to accept all the good that come our way.

Being grateful takes but a few minutes each day, at the very least, but the more gratitude you give, the more you receive.

I am grateful for all the people in my life and all those I have yet to meet. I am grateful for all that I have and all the good things that are coming my way.

I am also grateful to you for viewing my gratitude journal and my blog.

I am grateful for giving myself the chance to finally mourn a loss. I have been doing my best to live life as positively as I could, but I don’t think living positively means that I should ignore something that pained me.

After a few days of trying to ignore and push this loss aside, I finally let myself go and cry.

I surrender and release this pain.

Tomorrow is a new day. When I wake up in the morning, I am going to pick myself back up.

I am grateful to know how well my five nephews up North are growing up–from the oldest at 10 years of age to the newest at a couple of weeks old.

For two of them (the oldest, D, and his little five year old brother, J), they have had to go through several drastic changes over the last couple of years due to their parent’s separation and divorce proceedings.

It is great to see D helping his mom care for his younger brother, and I think the two brothers are beginning to find their way somehow and growing into their new family structure with less anger and pain. I hope that things will continue to go positively for them.

I am grateful for one more day with my extended family… for a bit more sharing and bonding.
