Gratitude – What does it mean to you?

How often do you feel Gratitude?

The reason I ask this is I am sitting in my garden in the sunshine surrounded by colour. Nature is wonderful if you take time to be aware.  Apart from the flowers and trees, if you stand or sit quietly, you can hear the sounds of the different birds.Today I have taken photos of all the colours surrounding me.
A large part of the beauty in my garden is thanks to my wonderful neighbour. He took plants both large and small from his garden and planted them in mine. The rest I planted from seedlings and have watched them grow.

 Another thing I am grateful for is the Hypnotherapy workshop I went on. As I advised in my last blog I am also transitioning to becoming Vegan. Since then I have lost 10 kg!  I have put a little back on as I had a friend staying but it is coming back off just as quickly. With her being Gluten Free and me eating plant based foods I was amazed at how many places in and around Edinburgh could accommodate us.Two places I would highly recommend for a visit, if you are ever up this way is Roslyn Chapel and also the Samye Ling Centre in the Borders. If you want to see photos I took in the latter you can see them on my Facebook page here.

There is always something to feel grateful for, even if it’s having a roof over your head or food on your table. I make it a practice to write down three things before I go to bed. Sometimes I want to write a lot more. Why not try doing that and surprise yourself. Feel free to let me know what you are grateful for.

PS. Why don’t you go and like my Facebook page. At the top of the page you will see pinned a competition I am running. If you want to share it I will be able to give out the prizes a little quicker.
