I’ve taken some of what I have for granted. I haven’t celebrated and I haven’t been grateful in my wanting.

I want a lot. I know I want a lot in all areas of my life. I think that it is good to want, wanting something is having a goal, a challenge, a dream, a desire. Wanting something opens my being up to growth and expansion.

To be more. To do more. To experience more. To live how I want to live.

So much of the time I get caught in the day-to-day of what is. Each new day being better than the next, however living in the day-to-day, I do not realize the growth and expansion I’ve had. I get so focused on what it is that I want, that I forget to notice where it was that I had been.

I don’t see how much my life has improved, how much better each area of my life is. How I’ve grown and expanded in my being, my doing. And sometimes I don’t realize all the experiences I have had and enjoyed.

And then I become aware because of an idea, thought or experience, and I am so happy and grateful for where I am in the present moment! I am grateful for my growth and expansion.

I am aware in this present moment! I am so happy and grateful for who I am, what I am doing, what I am experiencing! I am so happy and grateful for where I was, and that I am aware so that I can celebrate my growth and expansion to where I am now.

I am grateful for my new expanded wants, dreams and desires! I am grateful that I will continually grow and expand with new wants, dreams and desires emerging from my being, doing and experiences! I am growing!

Where are you? Where were you? What can you celebrate? What do you want now?

Live Your Truth!


When feeling emotions of lack and wanting, negative, instead of feeling emotions of want and desire, positive, choose to be grateful and appreciative for your life experiences and feel the joy of being who you are. Feeling positive about your wants and desires, your vision and goals, you will feel growth and expansion!


I often feel lack and wanting in my vision and goals. I feel discord in time, feeling lack and want in time freedom. I am able to be aware and I choose to direct my thoughts to gratitude and appreciation, and I am positive and happy feeling.

grumbling or grateful

There is much I could worry, doubt, or be anxious about.


I am so happy and grateful!

I am happy to be experiencing life! Living my truth!


Are you down? Are you judging yourself? I was. Then I realized that I can choose gratitude.

You can choose gratitude!

There are many things to be grateful for. Sometimes what we are grateful for seems small, but there are big things in your life to be grateful for too.

Sometimes experiences seem negative, but they are the beginning of something amazing and positive.

How often are those small things not the small things, but the things that matter most in our life?

What experiences have brought you joy, love, energy and enthusiasm?

What matters most in your life?

Challenges and Gratitude

My challenge right now is to be positive, there is so much that I want, and I’m feeling that there isn’t enough time to do it. Not enough time to do the things I think I need to do or should be doing for all that I want.

It is a challenge to stay present and focused on what is most important to me. I want to be happy, present and connected. I don’t want to feel rushed and thinking about what else I need to be doing or what I need to do next.


I want to be focused on what is most important to me and connected to my higher being.


I’m not feeling grateful in these moments. I’m not connected to what my vision is.

When I take a moment to connect with what I really want, I am able to feel gratitude. Being aware of what I want helps me to become aware of where I was, where I want to go and where I am.

I become present to the moment. I am able to focus on what is important in that moment. And I am always grateful for where I am and knowing that I am continually growing.

Live Your Truth!


Victim to Grateful

My mind was wondering tonight and I had some thoughts and aha moments (I love those).

Am I being grateful?

I had an awakening to the idea that I was allowing myself to be the victim in some areas of my life. Not just allowing, but choosing, to be the victim in some areas of my life. (what?! that’s not who I am, but it is me and part of my growth.)


“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie

I was focusing on the lack for what I want and allowing negative thinking and feelings to circle through my mind. Feeling that I’m not worthy, I’m not loved, I’m not deserving.

Even though I know I am worthy. I am loved. I am deserving. I am love.

Yet, I was allowing myself to be the victim of those feelings of unworthiness in thinking about what I want and why I don’t have it. I was not taking responsibility for what I want.

I was choosing thoughts of being a victim, and not choosing positive thoughts of gratitude.

I have so much of what I want! Why was I choosing to focus on what I don’t have?

I choose gratitude! I choose positive! I choose to be grateful for everything that I do have! Grateful for everything I do! Grateful for everything I experience! Grateful for who I am!

I am deserving! I am loved! I am worthy! I am love!

Are you being a victim, or are you being grateful?

YOU are deserving! YOU are loved! YOU are worthy! YOU are love!

Live Your Truth!
