Day 4 of 28 Days of Gratitude

"Being grateful of your health ensures that you will continue to receive more health to be grateful for, and at the same time it eliminates stress and tension in your body and mind."

OK, I can literally hear you saying "yea right" ... this is one of those days that must be practiced over and over, because I'm sure everyone has heard the saying "you're just making yourself sick" ... well... certain things yes, other things, no... but I can say this with certainty, the more you think about something, the more you bring that thing to you.  Everything you focus on, expands.

This is such a touchy subject, but the point is to feel into the health that we have now, and be truly grateful, feeling into the emotion.

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so let us all be thankful.”
— Gautama Buddha, Founder of Buddhism (circa 563BC- 484BC)

I LOVE this day.  Look around... can you see? I can see!  How amazing is that... I can see my 22 month old dancing to Moana, smiling ear to ear, and I can hear his amazing laughter... I can also hear my 4 month old crying and see that he is trying to root on his daddy's arm, haha... Oh, and we just cooked dinner... I can smell the delicious aroma of veggies sautéing in garlic and fresh herbs, and it's making me soooo hungry... and I'm sipping on an ice cold Pina Colada Activate right now...  omg, so delicious, it literally makes me feel like my feet should be buried in the sand on a tropical island... MY SENSES!!! I am truly grateful for all of my senses, including my 6th sense, my intuition.

Right now, I can feel my heart beating, my lungs filling up with oxygen, my fingers as I type this, the thoughts flowing as I'm creating... the strength of my back as I'm sitting upright...my toes wiggling around... with every cell in my body... thank you, thank you, thank you. 

THE GIFT OF HEALTH IS KEEPING ME ALIVE. 

Oh hells yes it is.
