Wow, what a crazy and quite frankly – chaotic -two weeks it’s been. I know that so many of you are still being affected by the aftermath of Sandy. My thoughts and well wishes are with you, and I hope you recover as soon as possible.
While I wasn’t directly hit by the storm, I did have some chaos of my own:
My brand new car was hit and run in the middle of the night. Friday was all about police reports, insurance claims, tow trucks, car rental. I have to admit, it was really stressful.
But here’s the thing: throughout the entire experience, what I keep on reminding myself is – thank goodness I’m ok and my family is ok, that we weren’t in the car when it happened, that everyone is safe.
Cultivating Gratitude around this situation has literally saved me from going down the rabbit hole of anxiety, negativity and fear around what will happen next with the car. Cultivating gratitude has actually helped me appreciate my life and health in a way I wouldn’t have if this terrible thing hadn’t happened!
With that, I lovingly and enthusiastically invite you to the second annual Gratitude Project.
Just imagine what might be different for you if Gratitude were the go-to emotion for you when things go wrong (or right, for that matter!).
