Today I am Grateful for……

whatareyougratefulfor

There are days that I can get so caught up in what I am not doing and forget about what I have achieved.

Has this happened to you?

We forget to focus on the amazing things that we have done.

We forget to look at the positive things in our lives.

We forget to say to ourselves, well done for today.

We can become so consumed by the negative thoughts that we have.

I have shared before that I work as a primary school Chaplain and I love my job.

I talk to a lot of students who may be focusing on the negatives, who feel that they cannot see a positive in their lives.

I always come back to-

Today I am Grateful for…………………….

I suggest that they have lovely journal that they can write in and a lovely pen.

I suggest to them to write down what they are grateful for today. They can do this just before they go to bed at night.

It can be the little things like-

I have a bed to sleep in

I have friends

I get to go to school and learn

I have a pet.

I need to remind myself as well sometimes that there are so many things that I can be grateful for.

A Challenge-

Buy you a lovely journal

Buy yourself a beautiful pen.

Every night before you go to bed write 5 things that you are grateful for.

Please share what you are grateful for today.

Lately I have been thinking about encouraging others.

Yes, this has been on my heart.

Random Acts of Kindness

Lately I have been thinking about Random Acts of Kindness.

I love this.

What does that mean for you?

For me it means ask, seek and knock.

What have you been asking, seeking and knocking for?

I would love to know how you have been blessing others?

You are a blessing to others.

For me on my heart lately I have been wanting to bless others.

I jut want to bless them without them even knowing.

I love this the surprise of encouraging others.

I have been wanting to encourage others and say yes you can do this.

How can we bless others and just surprise them?

How can we just be a blessing to others?

Random acts of kindness, what does that look like to you?

Let me know what you do.

I would love to hear what you have been doing.

What if we just blessed others without them, even knowing.?

What if we just blessed others for who they are? Without receiving anything?

What if we just blessed others because we care about them?

What if we blessed others because that is who we are, a person that blessed others?

So, let’s encourage and bless one another this week.

Love this.

There is something about taking a break and being on holidays.

I am on school holidays and I am so grateful for this time.

What do you like about holidays?

What do you do when you are on holidays?

I just love that I don’t have to set my alarm, it is such a freeing experience. No setting of the alarm for two weeks.

I love the space that I have to create.

Space to be creative is really important to me.

Space to create.

My heart for the last two weeks has been on singing and I really miss singing.

Is there something that you love that you have put on hold?

Is there something that makes your heart sing that you have stopped doing?

I can answer to both of these questions yes.

Why do we stop investing in the things that make us happy, that make us whole?

It is that we put other things in place of what we love?

It is because we don’t think that we are good enough?

I love the thought of what would we you do if you/I could not fail?

How would we approach what we love to do?

How would our lives be different?

I want to share something with you, I work as a primary school Chaplain and the children know that I love to sing and dance.

The children have said to me- your life is a musical.

What if we embraced our dream, our desires and what makes our heart smile?

What would our life be like?

How would our life look?

My challenge for the next few days is- to sing.

What will you do?

Be encouraged, you deserve a beautiful life.

Be brave.

Do you need to know that there is someone who values you?

There are those days where your heart feels heavy for others.

There are those days when you reflect on what you have heard.

There are those days where you wonder what is going on.

There are those days where you wonder, what can I do?

There are those days where you say, how can I help you?

There are those days where you say to others, I am here for you.

There are those days where you reach out to others.

There are those days, where we are reminded that we are in a community.

There are those days that you want to wipe away tears from those that have lost something.

There are those days where you just sit with someone who is in pain and say to them, I am here for you.

There are those days where you want to say to others there is no judgement here, this is a safe place.

There are those days that feel difficult and hard.

There are those days that together we are stronger, together we have support, together we care.

There are those days when you say, all I have is in my hand.

It may mean so much to someone that you are just there for them, just them.

It may mean so much to someone to just love on them and accept them as they are.

It may mean so much to someone that you notice them, that you acknowledge them.

It may mean so much to someone to say that you value them.

It may mean so much to someone that you have reached out to them.

It may mean so much to someone that you are just there, that you are just there to hold the space for them.

This week just be there for someone.

This week just be there.
