Choose Gratitude

journal

Gratitude. We hear that word so often lately. Be grateful.  Be thankful.  Enjoy the little things for someday you will realize they were the big things.  Be kind.  Show appreciation.

It’s at this time of year that we call attention especially to gratitude and thankfulness.  We celebrate it.  We have an entire day to celebrate being thankful.  We have traditions around it.  We share with others why we are thankful.  It makes us feel good.

And then the season passes and we stop being as intentional as about it.  We let the little things creep back in.  We get annoyed by slow drivers or having to wait in line at the grocery store.  We get impatient with our kids.  We often complain to strangers.  We demand things.  We want things our way.

Vision

Vision.  That’s something my big brother taught me from time we were little kids.

I think our first vision board was when I was in 3rd grade.  We wanted to buy a Commodore 64.  We found a picture of one in a catalog, cut it out and tacked it to a cork board and placed it on the wall.  Within days, something popped up in the classified section of our local newspaper and my dad bought it for us.  It had everything and anything we needed.  We had hours of fun with that computer as kids.  But it all started with our vision.

What Rhonda Knows

you are enoughI recently gave my office a complete makeover.  The color, the furniture, the lighting, the wall art, everything.  Everything about the energy of the space changed.

Quite honestly, I spend most of my time here.  It’s where I work. It’s where I workout.  Occasionally eat.  It’s where I lead calls.  It’s where I get my inspiration.  It’s where I pray.  It’s where I meditate.  It’s where I make videos.  It’s where I write.
