I very rarely map out what I’m going to say to clients, write about on the blog, or anything else for that matter. A lot of Life Coaches do but for some reason I work a lot better on a whim. I work better when tossed into a situation knowing nothing about it and have to think on my feet. I attribute that to God working through me. It’s something I’ve prayed on for years and years – for God to use me and work through me. It actually used to scare me because I thought if I asked God to do that he’d send me to a convent to be a nun. No thank you, that definitely is not my calling! But I got over that pettiness and prayed it with all my heart. To this day everyday I wake up and ask God to use me and work through me and then amazing things take place almost immediately.
Today I did not wake up with any particular thing on my mind to discuss and then I prayed. I prayed and then something happened. I started writing in my journal and mapping out business ideas. Then I started tweeting. If you follow me(Winky Boo) on Twitter then you’ll know I’m pretty random at times, we’ll say. I started tweeting and without thinking at all this is what happened:
Be grateful. Be grateful for ALL that you have – every single freaking thing! The good, the bad and the ugly. The things you are good at and the things you struggle with. Be grateful. Say Thank You! That is Lesson #1 in manifesting your desires is gratitude – I read that on my dear friend’s Instagram this morning. But it’s true – it’s very, very true. I talk about gratitude often with my clients, but sometimes somebody says something and it resonates with you in a different way, on a totally different level. Have an attitude of gratitude even when times are tough. Even when you aren’t where you feel you should be or deserve to be. God is working. He knows what’s up. He knows everything. Don’t sulk or throw around pity because every single thing happening is happening FOR you, not TO you. It’s happening FOR YOU! Be grateful for that. It could all be gone in a second.
When you’re obsessing, distract yourself with gratitude. When you’r angry, distract yourself with gratitude. This is a life lesson I want to instill in you right now. What you have RIGHT NOW, could be gone in a flash. What you have RIGHT NOW, you probably had asked for at some point in time. I know the things I have right now may not be everything I want, I may want more, but everything I have RIGHT NOW, is something I had prayed for. So I am grateful. I am grateful for it all. I am grateful for those reading this. I am grateful for those who’s lives I can touch in some way, shape or form. All I hope to do is tweak your world just a little bit and if that means I tweaked just 1 person’s world, I am still grateful. I’d love to tweak millions of lives, and I know I will, but for where I am right now, I am very, very grateful.
Spend your day in gratitude. If something goes wrong, be grateful – it was protecting you from something worse. Remember my words: Rejection is protection! A failed job = protection. A relationship gone wrong = protection. Late to work = PROTECTION. BE GRATEFUL!!! You may not understand it, you don’t have to understand it – just be grateful for it. Be grateful for it all.
Blessings to you all. With gratitude, Amy
