Today is Gratitude Day!

Continuing my list of '100 Gratitudes', I am grateful for...

69. clear blue skies on a London winter's day - last week as I wrote my blog the view from my window was gray and dreary. Today I look out and all I see is a baby blue sky without a single cloud, and the morning sun flooding the buildings. Ahh the difference the sun can make! :-) I wouldn't have thought the weather could have such an effect on me. I try not to let it because I know it's only weather and we can't change it. I try to remind myself that it's just Mother Nature moving through her cycles - cycles that are necessary for life on this planet. But best laid plans....! Sometimes the winter gets me down and I long for the sunshine. So I'm grateful the weather gods are smiling on me today.

70. chocolate - I eat too much of this wonderful stuff, I admit it. But I just can't help myself. I once stopped for a short time - until I realised I'd only replaced eating chocolate with drinking hot chocolates!! Some way or another I always get my fix. That makes me sound like an addict...well, maybe I am. It just tastes so, so, so good.

71. Lightworker Magazine - I only just discovered this online magazine. It describes a lightworker as someone who is "committed to the art of positive living." The magazine is full of inspiring articles. I've only read the latest edition, so now I want to go back and take a look at all their past ones. Best of all - we can all do this online, for free! I love what the people at Lightworker Magazine are doing - spreading the word in an accessible way. I appreciate that. And it makes me grateful for those in the world who just want to help others, in any way they can.

72. Toni Carmine Salemo - I bought a couple of prints by this Australian intuitive artist at the Mind Body Spirit festival last year. I was captivated by his beautiful images - they spoke directly to my soul. I think Toni is a magnificent artist who has an extraordinary talent. He is able to let go and connect to his spirit, and then translate what he sees and feels so stunningly onto the canvas. When I look at his work I feel a connection to the divine.
