Gratitude List - Linkup #6

Some days the inspiration just dries up and I move into a blogging hiatus.

Then suddenly things start to show up and I have an epiphany.

So today there were gratitude posts and pages showing up everywhere and something inside told me I needed to get back into my gratitude posts. I did many gratitude series when I started blogging and perhaps it was time to get back into that.

So here is my gratitude list (in no particular order)

1.  Grateful for friends who uplift - I needed that a lot.

2.  Grateful that my work contract got renewed and I was back at work last Monday

3.  Grateful for a sense of humour - helped me get through a difficult moment

4.  Grateful that I had some time to myself today - quiet time is a luxury - a time to sit in silence and reflect

5.  Grateful that all these gratitude posts showed up and inspired me to write again - amazing how the Universe gives you that little unexpected nudge to get things going again.

6.  Grateful that I enjoyed a special birthday with my son (read about it here)

7.  Grateful for lots of hugs - a hug is so therapeutic

8.  Grateful that families of all my Filipino friends are safe.

Sharing a quote that also jumped out at me today

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it 
~ William Arthur Ward

  1. Sometimes it's easier to have a prompt to inspire the writing. Congrats on the job contract, that must be a relief I assume. And knowing that your friends in the Philippines are safe, another huge thing to be grateful for.

    1. Thanks Anexpatinuk. Yes prompts are definitely easier - but sometimes with a brain fade prompts become blurs. Glad this one came along. Thanks for visiting.

    I am grateful my fellow bloggers who are focusing on gratitude and inspiring me
    I am grateful to few women who join me in the early hours to practice yoga
    I am grateful to the staff at my office who have been very cooperative
    Today I was grateful to lady in the bank who help with some issues I had with my cheques
    I am grateful to my sister who called me and enquired about my well being
    I am grateful to my body that is functioning so well
    I am grateful to friends, who are encouraging and motivating and even helping me to prepare for my exams
