Quality over Quantity
I read an article on gratitude journals yesterday. Seems the Universe knows what I'm up to and brought me one in my Facebook news feed. One of the tips they gave was to focus on the quality of what you're grateful for, and not necessarily the quantity. See I could list everything I am grateful for: roof over my head, food in the fridge, water to drink, friends who love me, cats who (mostly) love me, this computer, a hot shower, a toilet....and I could list everything I have in my home, everything I have ever bought and be grateful for everything I could buy in the future.... this is quantity. But what really matters to me? What would I care to lose the most in my life? What would make me a different person if I didn't have that one thing?
I'm not claiming to know all the answers right now. I'm just thinking out loud. I want to really FEEL gratitude, not just say it. That is the point after all. The Universe responds to energy and vibration and what we're feeling deep down is what is creating the reality around us whether we like it or not. If we're feeling down and depressed and we believe the world is out to get us...then that is what it is. If we're feeling happy and optimistic and blessed that the world provides everything we need...then that is what we get. The trick is figuring out how vibrate with the energy of happy, optimistic, and blessed. How do you find that joy? I'm hoping gratitude is the key that unlocks that door.
Day 3. I am grateful for sleep. I want more of it. I love how I found new work (online) yesterday and I've started making some money doing odd jobs. I love how I can apply to jobs (both online and in retail stores around here) on my computer with ease. I am grateful for whoever invented the internet and the other guy (or girl) who made it mainstream. Thank you to my internet provider and I am grateful for the ability to pay for that internet. I think I got off track with the quality thing today but maybe not...I really need these things right now to better my life. I could certainly do it another way if there was no internet, but I am grateful it exists in this moment. On to another day of searching and working. Thanks for listening.
In gratitude, Elizabeth
