I’m going to do a Gratitude Ladder for today’s Gratitude Challenge.  I’ve been caught up in work drama and I think deeply examining one part of my life is needed today!

Today I am grateful for my new car.

I’m grateful for the job I have to afford the new car

  • I’m grateful for the skills I have to have that job
  • I’m grateful for circumstances that led me to this job 12 years ago.
  • I’m grateful for our customers

I’m grateful for technology in my car

  • For the intelligence that designed that technology
  • the workers that installed the technology
  • the safety features that give me peace of mind
    • That I have 2 cute kids in my life that make me concerned with safety features!

I’m grateful for all that went in to building my new car

  • All the people it took from the engineers, to the factory workers, to the people who clean the offices.
  • For all the parts that were built by suppliers and shipped to the factory

I’m grateful for the bells and whistles

  • Heated seats – especially for the cow that provided the leather (so sorry)
  • Reverse camera
  • Sound system
  • Blindspot indicator
  • The snazzy color

I’m grateful for the fun route I take home that truly lets me enjoy driving my new baby!

I’m grateful for the past crappy cars in my life that allows me to really appreciate this car!

I’m grateful for the salesman who helped me pick the best car available.

I’m grateful my insurance is a little cheaper on this model!  Yay!

I’m grateful I know how to drive

I’m grateful this car gets good gas mileage and reduces my carbon footprint a little.

Good luck and enjoy the benefits of living a grateful life!

…Remember the law of attraction – like energy attracts like energy. If you resist looking at something or feeling anything, it just creates the need for you to look at this or feel this over and over, again. If I asked you now to not think of a blue

The Courage to Write: 23 Quotes to Help You Overcome the Fear of Writing

Whenever I sit down to write, I am prepared to meet my loyal companion: fear. Regardless of what I’m writing, I can almost always count on fear being present. So what do I do with this fear of uncertainty? Most of the time, I choose to deflate its presence by putting pen to paper. However, there are times, when I don’t want to experience the fear and choose not to show up. But I’m really trying to minimize the “write or flight” response of not showing up by creating a safe space for the fearful writer within. One way I do this is to keep a journal of quotes for the moments when I need a little nudge of encouragement to be present and forge ahead.

I’ve chosen 23 quotes from my journal to share here for others who need encouragement when approaching the blank page. I hope that some of these words will resonate with you (and particularly the fearful writer within)…

Worried about Ruining or Wasting a Pretty Journal

I used to feel this way too, and still do at at times. A while back I started forcing myself to use journals (and journaling fodder) that I loved in my journals. It was painful, but in the end, rewarding. Now that I have some of them to look back upon, I love the fact that I have a beautiful journal filled with memories I may have other wise forgotten…
