Gratitude Journal Experiment Days 23-30 — It’s Been a Month! Gratitude Journaling Results

20120526-073154.jpg

Time for some gratitude attitude! Yo DJ give me a fat beat to show some love to this awesome month. We have met new friends, learned new things, regressed and progressed. It’s been a month of deep understanding in what we do and who we are.

We spent time each day taking in our opportunities and blessings. We focused on healthy manifestation and worked towards happiness through self-fulfillment. If a scenario wasn’t for the greater good of making us smile, we found ways to turn it into something optimistic.

Dwelling will only bring more to dwell on. Like attracts like. Please take some time today to see the bright side of your life. We all have miraculous ability to make anything out of our future that we want. Fill yourself with hope and possibility. We make the change.

The Results:
It’s somewhat difficult to put into words the tremendous results we’ve seen through this month of consciously practicing gratitude. Here are some of the highlights:
*A new and improved sense of financial freedom and security (yeah, we know!)
*Double or even Triple the access we had to healthy foods
*Business and personal connections in our new town
*Lots of physical healing and and developmental strides for Dougie
*Ideas to carry us through the next part of our adventure
*Much more success and consistency in our home school project
*More Happy Clients and connections with the Right People
*Healing of Old Emotional Wounds
*Creative Release
*Physical Healing for all 3 of us (Especially a very eye-opening liver detox)
*The ability to much more quickly recoup ourselves after a difficult moment
*Being More productive and selective with our time
*Past-Life Memories and Healing
*Tremendous increase in Intuitive Abilities
*Support from friends far and wide

We didn’t ask for most of this, but inside we knew we needed it. The need to be properly rewarded for the work we do, helps us continue on this path. It would be the same for anyone, we think. But, sometimes we just don’t even know what to ask for. We were so distraught a month ago, and we thought that all we really needed was material. We thought we had a handle on the spiritual and emotional stuff. Yes, it’s our strong-suit, for sure. But, simply practicing gratitude everyday has made us see everything more clearly. We are, once again– amazed.

Gratitude Journal Experiment: Day 11- Gratitude Journaling Results

We have been practicing the gratitude agenda for over a week now. It’s been useful on a daily basis to keep reminding ourselves about the wonder that the world offers us. It seems like such a small thing, but it adds up at the end of the day. There have been times in my life when I can remember spending ample amounts of time on simply avoiding issues and making it through the work week. It’s so counter-productive to spend time worrying.

The Gratitude Journal is a reminder to keep your head in the direction of bliss. If you are reading these posts, then please take the time to set up your own journal. At the very least, reflect on what you are doing during the day and make sure that you are seeing the bright side of your situation. I know that there are times that are trying, and you might find it hard to see the positive, but I can guarantee you that if you can break through those moments with a healthy outlook that you will be rewarded as we have.

So, let’s get to the fam’s list o’ the day.

The Results
Today was relaxed and productive. We visited new places and received some tasty samples. I was invited into a home business and given some fresh homemade treats. We even met some Californians out here in no man’s land, and they invited us out for breakfast. Taking one step at a time, making sure to pet the puppies and smell the flowers with our full attention, we had a lot of cool experiences. Looking forward to tomorrow and making more out of our travels.

Gratitude Journal Experiment: Days 6, 7, and 8- Gratitude Journaling Results

Another day of gratitude begins. This weekend seemed to start off a bit sluggish, with many decisions to make quickly. It wasn’t the way that we usually like to get going. We hashed over ideas for a while and then decided to let the answers come to us.

Gina sat at the ocean. Dougie and I took a stroll. Somewhere in that process the answers came to us freely. And, without any worry we had worked out our issues.

This might seem like a trivial coincidence. But, when positivity is happening every time we let go and enjoy life, it’s the type of occurrence that begs attention. People will tell you that life is what you make of it. Really dissect that statement and think about it. Life is what you make of it. Your thoughts dictate your day. A person who is happy, genuinely happy, will always find ways of making their day better than someone who is dwelling on negativity.

So without further ado, here are a list of grateful’s to kick off your own thought process:

Doug’s Gratitude List:

Wrestling with Dougie
Massages
Tea with friends
Long stretches
Local hangouts
Pie with coconut ice cream
Laughter

Dougie’s Gratitude List

Making robots
A machine robot
WALL.E
EVE
Race cars with stickers
Thx

Gina’s Gratitude List
My husband’s patience
My husband’s motivational support
A new home
The smell of my childhood in my new kitchen
Tons of sleep
Soul connections

The Results

Well, as you know we were having some problems at our apartment. It simply didn’t feel like home. The whole thing seemed to turn around in a flash after Gina spent 15 minutes watching the ocean. We found a fairy-tale looking apartment in a little surf village full of organic food, yoga studios, nature, gong baths and wonderful people. And we are paying 200 dollars less that what we paid in our last place in Puerto Vallarta.

We’ve also made many new connections with wonderful people and we think we will be living and working here in Sayulita, MX for a few months while Gina works on her novel, and we get Blissed Life going to the next level.
