November’s Mantra: I AM GRATEFUL!

Happy November my lovelies. How often do you practice gratitude? I try to practice gratitude daily. With Thanksgiving approaching and the horrible aftermath the East Coast is facing with super storm Sandy, it’s an appropriate time to step it up a notch. Therefore November’s Mantra is “I am grateful”.

Being grateful is a key to happiness. Being grateful lets you see what you have in a new light. Gratitude brings importance to the small things in life, opens the door to new possibilities, and brings optimism to your current situation.

At this moment what are you grateful for? Say out loud the first three things that come to mind. I am grateful for the roof over my head, my mom and my creativity.

How I will practice gratitude this month…

  1. I will make a gratitude list and add to it daily
  2. I will start to make a gratitude scrapbook
  3. I will devote 5 minutes when I wake up and before I fall asleep to meditating on gratitude
  4. I will write hand written gratitude letters to people dear to my heart

How will you practice gratitude this month? What are you grateful for today?

I am grateful for you my darling readers. Have a fabulous day… love and light, Emily

Autumn, a time to …

I love love love Autumn! The crisp air, chunky sweaters and scarves, the colors the leaves turn is a visual feast for the eyes, the beginning of the holiday season and reading by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate. Pure Coziness.

Not only is Autumn a time of coziness, but as the leaves begin to fall we are reminded Autumn is a time to let go. The equal time between night and day reminds us of the importance of balance. And as Thanksgiving approaches we are reminded to be grateful. So this fall let’s LET GO, live in BALANCE and BE THANKFUL.
