Do you ever have thoughts that just won’t get out of your head? It might be from that job you’re barely tolerating as you drag yourself out of bed each morning or it could be a relationship that isn’t working out. Or maybe it’s just negative thoughts that keep creeping into your head. And you feel … More Shifting thoughts: I’ve Won Today
“Watch out for snakes” three people told me on the first day of my new job. “Be careful where you walk” okay, fair enough. “We think there’s a big tiger snake that lives underneath the building near the pathway” said a third person. Okay, now, I was starting to get really nervous.

I’ve been keeping a Gratitude Journal for the past five years. It’s become like a best friend that I check in with every night. And when things are tough, it helps me to focus on everything in my life that I have to be grateful for, no matter how small or large. This month Susie Lindau … More Blessed Project
