What is one thing that you take for granted that someone does for you?
There are so many little things that we take for granted, don’t you agree? Little things and big things.
What are a few of the little things and the big things that friends, family, colleagues, your pets, even some strangers have done and continue to do for you? I encourage you to reciprocate and to let them know that you do appreciate their time, thoughtfulness, and effort. It will be so very much appreciated!
If you would like a step-by-step workshop on writing the perfect note of appreciation, provide your contact information below, and I will send you a PDF from this workshop.
You know that your note is a smashing success when your special person feels like an even better person after reading it! Great job!
Greetings to everyone on this very lovely Saturday morning. What a perfect day for music and journaling!
Below is a youtube of “Blackbird” by Eddie Vedder. I have heard many covers of this song, but what makes this one so special is the participation from the audience and the appreciation that Eddie Vedder expresses for their beautiful whistling. I just love it! I don’t know about you, but this song was so sweet I had to listen to it twice.
There are clearly days when it seems as if my life’s level of Whistling Participation is at a pretty low low. I find myself wrapped up within the cocoon of my work, my family, my laundry list of concerns, my creativity, my chores and to-dos. I keep things close and don’t stretch in any extraordinary directions, really. I am like a little embodied capsule of Me that doesn’t live much beyond what is required of me or what pops up in the way of obligatory energy requirements.
“You were only waiting for this moment to arise . . .”
This is not to say that I am slumping through daily life with my head down and my eyes on the ground. I do keep my eyes and my heart open. But still. I know that there are “moments” when I feel prompted to “arise” and I consciously choose to ignore or sidestep the opportunities that call me to action. I realize that we can’t be “on” all of the time . . . yet today I am thinking that, perhaps with a little conscious and sub-conscious awareness on my part, I could be making a significant difference in random moments that could do with a little bit of “arising.” How about you? Do you ever feel this way?
If you click on the link below, you will find a journaling prompt for today . . . one that encourages you to participate and to support in a wee small way today.
Live is a lively event. Here’s your moment. What’s stopping you?
