Gratitude – Let Me Count The Ways

I’ve got some gratitude record-keeping to attend to (smile) and my internal guidance is prompting me to share a few with you as well as a special invitation that you’ll learn more about at the end of the post. Over the past month, my daily gratitude practice has turned up the dial for extraordinary happenings and prosperity . . . At Home, At Play and At Work that seem to transmit to others!


At Home . . . with family and friends!

You may remember, last month I spoke about our daughter’s upcoming wedding.  What I learned (last year when our son got married and even more so this year is:) there’s so much more to the “special day” then 35 years ago when Jack and I got married.  Normally, my family will tell you this is true, I get a bit particular about hosting events and my perfection level seems to escalate exponentially to a point where I’m less fun to be around.

Economy of Thought . . . How to Create New Wealth

If you’re looking for sound investment advice from a well-respected wise source, you have come to the right place.  The following article recently appeared in Cheryl Richardson’s newsletter and caught my attention.  As I read the article my head kept bobbing yes and it put a huge smile on my face.   That’s all I needed to know … a sure sign this is meant to be shared with you.  Enjoy!
“This morning, I sat on my deck in the sun, thinking about the day and what I would write in this week’s newsletter. After enjoying a period of silence, I picked up one of the “daily inspiration” books that I often read to start the day on the right foot. I closed my eyes, picked a page at random and instantly knew I was meant to share the passage with you.

This message is from the Universe.  Actually it’s from the book, “Notes from the Universe” by Mike Dooley, and here’s what the pages held…

Some Investment Advice from the Universe
“Did you follow your hunches during the 90’s in the stock market? Did you hear what I was telling you about huge yields in real estate? Did you “stumble” across those itty-bitty public companies with stock offerings that made penny investors millionaires?

Phew, I was slammed doling out golden opportunities to anyone I could reach. It became kind of a hobby, you know, to fill in the gaps of boredom that go along with being the Universe.

Truthfully, though, you didn’t miss a thing. Those fortunes were chicken feed compared to what I offer on a full-time basis through my day job. Are you ready for real opportunity? Do you even have room for the returns? No, you don’t. But that’s a good problem.

Thought. That’s right. Thought is the greatest vehicle of all time for burying one’s self, family, and friends in wealth and abundance – no matter what’s going on with the economy.

Thoughts have their own economy, and now is a super-great time to get in on the ground floor. With my patented trade secrets, I can take any old invisible thought of yours and turn it into a mine of gold, a mountain of cash, a well of prosperity.

It’s not too late! The best is yet to come. Invest in thought, follow your hunches, and live the life of your dreams.

Public disclosure: This offer is irrevocable. You’re now an investor whether you know it or not. All of your thoughts will become things. No lawyers can help you.  Save yourself; choose the good ones.”

I smiled as I closed the book remembering the days when I believed the idea that “thought creates reality” was a foolish and far-fetched notion. But then I looked around at my life, felt the peace in my heart from my good thoughts, and breathed a sigh of relief. Thank goodness I was willing to keep an open mind.”
