In last weeks blog I mentioned taking a look at all the things in your life you could be grateful for. So now that you've done that, and even if you haven't, lets look at ways we can spread the appreciation and gratitude to those around us.
Donating tangible objects, our time/expertise and simply sending kind thoughts towards someone are all fantastic ways to pay it forward.
Look around your home or office. Do you notice some things that you're done with? Perhaps you loved them at one time but they just aren't a reflection of what you want around your space any longer. Do you realize that even if you are done with the, painting, book, clothing item, etc; that it could be exactly what someone else is dreaming of having?! Be honest with yourself and let go of items that you never use or feel obligated to keep because someone gave it to you, or you spent a lot of money on it. Allow someone else to truly enjoy the item instead. When you release them it opens space for things you love even more to come into your life!
Giving of our time and or helping someone can be one of the most satisfying things we do in life. It is so rewarding to see someones face light up when you hold open a door, carry groceries to their car or perform any number of random acts of kindness. To this I'd like to add helping others with tips insights and info, from your chosen career. This can be a bit tricky since we get paid for those things, yet be aware that many times it will feel good and in alignment to help certain people. Trust that you will know how much to share in situations like these
Finally I'd like to talk about the simple yet powerful act of blessing others. You can bless others outwardly or by thinking kind loving thoughts about them. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of intending the best for others. One way to prove the power of uplifting thoughts is to think of times in your life when nobody believed in you, for whatever reason. As opposed to the times when people believed in you even when you didn't quite believe in yourself. Share blessings, thoughts of love and success with as many people as you possibly can. This is the easiest thing you can do to change the world for the better and it costs you nothing but a few moments of your time.
Thank you all for continuing to read my blogs. It brings me great joy to share a bit of my world with you each week.
Much love and blessings to you! Remember to have fun this week:-)
