Begin and end with Gratitude


Vase filled with soft white flowers (including my favorte-the ranunculus).  There is a play of shadow and light in the image.
An amazing photographer that I follow blessed me with several of her images. I was, and remain, grateful and overwhelmed by such a gift. Thank you Ashley Johnson.

Over the past year, I've been getting closer with a friend. We've begun to share more about ourselves with each other and spend time with each other outside of the main "group" that we are in. A week or so ago, she offered to share what she learned from a prosperity and success session that she attended last year. I immediately agreed! The past few years have been difficult for me mentally and I'm willing to do almost anything to rewire my thoughts.


She suggested I get a journal that visually stands out to me. We met this morning, she with her tea and me with my ice coffee, and got to work. I wanted to share some of what I learned today with you, in case you're ready for a change in your life as well.


  • What we focus on, we create.

  • If you focus on the negative, you will continue to receive negativity. Focus on the good and positive side of things when possible.

  • When are you going to stop being a victim?

  • ouch!

  • There are 4 parts of life: wealth, health, career, relationships

  • Pick one to work on in your journal for 30 days

  • It's ok to switch what you're working on-If you're struggling in an area, change your focus to a different one

  • Scripting

  • Also known as manifesting. Speak on (and write about) things in your life as if you already have them! (Instead of saying, "I want a new career" say instead, "I have the career of my dreams".

  • What do you want in life? What do you want to create? How do you want to feel?

  • Don't force it-do what works for you. Your journey and desires are not necessarily the same as others.

  • Appreciation and gratitude will keep you on track

  • Begin and end with gratitude. Be appreciative of the things you currently have.

  • Don't focus on what you don't want. Focus on what you desire.

I truly hope that these prompts will be helpful for you. I am excited about the places I will go and the things I will achieve in the upcoming year.


I love you and you're worthy.
