There are times when we go through difficult situations and we are so caught up in it that we forget what we should be thankful for. Of course it is easy to forget when your mind is filled with worries and stress. But then there are times when it feels so darn good to your heart that you just want to jump of joy and float away into the clouds. Ok, maybe some of you don’t feel that and maybe I just sound crazy, but it does happen to me. The weirdest thing is it happens to me the most not when I literally make myself think of what I should be thankful for, but at times when I simply do something that I enjoy. When I work on my paintings I like to listen to happy upbeat music, and for some reason the choice of music mainly is always Russian music. Go figure, because even though I fluently do speak, read and write in that language I still never really have a reason to listen to that music, or do anything in that language other then speak with my own parents who would refuse to speak to me in English. The moment I start to paint my mind switch to Russian tunes and so there goes my ipod playing Russian beats. I immerse myself into the painting not even paying attention to what the songs are until all the sudden I feel so good inside. I realize how wonderful it is to have the time to actually do something that I love. I stop what I’m doing and simply become thankful for everything I have whether it’s small or not.
Just think for a moment how much we take for granted. I realize that I need to give thanks to God, my angels that are always around me, and spiritual guides who always guide me. I realize that because of them I was able to survive the hard times, because of them I am still finding things that are positive in my life. Because of everything that has happened to me in my life good or bad I am who I am today. I light my candle for my angels, I pray with thanks to all the beautiful beings out there that have been part of my life and who have given me this chance to grow as a being myself. I thank them for continuously guiding me on my path in this life towards more and more explorations.
Don’t forget to be thankful not only to people around you but the energies that have gotten you here today. When you get into sticky situations think about it before acting upon it. What does this situation wants me to take from it? What do I need to learn here, and how will it benefit me as a lesson in the future.
I thank all my Angels, Guardian Angels, Arch Angels, Reiki Spirits and Spiritual Guides for being in my life and continuing surround me as I grow and learn my life lessons.
