Gratitude Challenge

 Subscribe in a reader

I started the 21-day Gratitude Challenge because I realized that being thankful is a key to being happy. I’ve made a gratitude list on and off, but haven’t been consistent. That’s why I created a challenge for myself. To make it easy, I only list 3 things that I’m grateful for each day and post them on Twitter @fitnesswla. I plan to have fun with this. Recently, I went to a workshop and learned the Five Tools of Empowerment from Joan Moran, Author, Speaker and Blogger.

1. An attitude of gratitude
2. Be vulnerable and open myself up emotionally
3. Learn to adapt and look for the good
4. Continue to find my passion and live it
5. Forgive and let go in order to move forward

I agree that aging is an attitude and not a chronological number. It is the grace of knowing yourself. It is a magical gift, a tangible asset because it gives you experience or wisdom. Instead of avoiding, denying or fearing this natural process, we need to accept and embrace it. I also believe that resistance is the most toxic force, the root of more unhappiness than disease or poverty. Resistance causes us to be less than what we’re born to be, to lose our spirit and make excuses. Life is action. When we resist something, we block the entire experience or the opportunity to grow and we not really present. Choose to accept life as it is and do the most important work every day when you wake up. Do what brings you joy now.

What are you grateful for? Make a list now

P.S. Join the Inspiring Women Summit:

Mother's Day Divine Feminine Retreat in Sedona, AZ. May 11-14. We have created the most sacred, divine and creative experience for All Goddess Wisdom and Women to connect with each other and the magic of Sedona. A modern, busy lifestyle has 90% of women stressed out and fall into unhealthy habits because they don't have time or money to be healthy.  As a result, 70% of adults are overweight or obese and ill due to stress. It's time to take back control of our bodies and our health. To find out more, contact me ASAP!

I was interviewed on Women's radio about stress-reduction. Click link to listen to free recording. Many women feel guilty or selfish when I advise some "me" time because they are not used to putting themselves first. We are natural caregivers and often get stressed out trying to take care of business and others in our families. When do we find time to recharge? Contact me for a free 30-minute consultation.
