Birds on a wire

  

I’m in the middle of reading a book, called ‘One Thousand Gifts A Dare To Live Fully Right Where You Are.’ by Ann Voskamp. She invites you into her life writing a list of a thousand things she is grateful for, documenting her struggles, and change through this process. It’s inspired me to include more appreciation in my life rather than dwelling on the things I cannot change.

I want to challenge myself to stray from those pushy negative thoughts, and open my eyes to all that’s around me. We all have things to be thankful for, even when things go wrong. I’m going to start my list, day by day, I may just aim for 100 and see where it goes. I challenge everyone to try this, just jot down a couple things you’re thankful for. (That is if anyone actually reads my blog 🙂 )

1. The sun hiding behind the clouds
2. The sound of our horses chewing their oats
3. Birds sitting on a telephone Wire
4. Fresh eggs for breakfast
5. Clean clothes smelling of Spring, from the gain dryer sheets
