Week 18 -A Simple Thank You Will Do
What would the person I intend to become do next? DO IT NOW!!!
Those words play through my being as freely as the oxygen I breath fuels my blood. I am not thinking about it, but it permeates my thoughts.
What a day!!! With a question like that dominating my brain, and then the answer, how could the day be anything but successful? And, therein, begins my observations of myself.
So I was in a training session with a gal who was very excited about starting her business and affecting people positively both physically and financially. She spoke of challenges she was facing. My part of our conversation was speaking words of encouragement.
Her response was that I always have the right words to say, right when she needs them. Immediately my old blue print kicked in. I denied her statement. What was that? If I denied her statement, was I not calling her a liar?
The observer in me called me out. What was the promise I had just recited this morning? “I promise to be a grateful receiver of the gifts that surround me, noticing nature, kindnesses, smiles, and compliments, which I gladly receive with a ‘thank you’.”
No need to dwell on my denial, replace it with gratitude, when a simple Thank You will do?
