“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.” –Sarah Ban Breathnach
As hard as it for me to believe, I will be 50 years old this May. All I know is that I certainly don't feel like I'm going to be 50 (maybe closer to 35)! I don't mind letting people know my age...I am thankful for every day, every month, every year that has brought me to this point in my life. I am going to give myself the gift of taking the time (between now and my birthday) to reflect on the 50 things in my life that I am grateful for and that I love...the simple things that make me smile and bring me happiness. My word for 2010 is focus and I am chosing to focus on gratitude!
