Feeling Thankful

Wow. What a week it has been.

I enjoyed a fabulous relaxing weekend away and this week I have caught up with some friends at lunch, even managing to control my alcohol intake, without even trying.

I am happily riding a high vibe at the moment and I am enjoying every single minute.

I love it when life is like this, I am happy, things are going smoothly and I just need to embrace each and every moment.

Every time this happens, there is the little voice in the back of my mind saying “Clare, you know that this isn’t going to last” That voice used to be a lot louder, so loud in fact, that it used to stop me from enjoying the happy moments.

Now,  I am getting a lot better at embracing the highs and riding the lows. Every week, I feel like I am overcoming another obstacle in life, sometimes they are big, sometimes they are small, but either way, the feeling of overwhelm is getting easier to deal with. Its still overwhelming, but my stress levels are not as through the roof as they would have been a few months ago.

I feel like things are slowly coming together. I am not a fan of change, but I am finding that the more open I am to change, the easier things become and things tend to work out better than I could have hoped for.  I am at place in life right now, where if I could change anything right this minute, I wouldn’t, I would be perfectly happy. What more could you possibly ask for?

There are so many exciting things happening for me at the moment and some of them I can share and some I will share with you as soon as I can.

You may have seen on my post on Saturday, I was invited to write for a publication on Medium at the end of last week. I am so so excited about this and am looking forward to submitting something over the next couple of weeks. Writing for this publication will mean that my writing could reach a much wider audience and it will also give me experience in submitting my work, its all moving in a positive direction.

The carpet has finally been fitted in our hallway, this means that the house is pretty much ready to go on the market. Although, we are now talking about carpeting the rest of the upstairs – every time we make an improvement it just makes the rest of the house look shoddy.

As I said before, I’ve not always found it so easy and I often found myself lying on the treatment bed at Zoe’s, having my lashes done and asking her “How do you manifest all this stuff? How do you manage to have such a positive energy all the time?” She always tells me the same thing. Gratitude. She does her daily gratitude religiously and feels genuinely thankful every day, everything else just flows.

Why couldn’t I get to grips with this?

I decided I would do my gratitude everyday, regardless of how small. So almost every day this year, I have been writing 3 things I am grateful for. Now, I feel genuinely grateful and happy, its become second nature to feel thankful and as Zoe said, everything is now beginning to flow.

As well as setting goals & intentions and really focusing on what I want to achieve. When something doesn’t work out that week (such as drinking 2 litres of water!) I don’t just think “Oh I can’t do that” I keep going, I keep trying, I keep coming back to it. I will get it eventually, it will click.

I know it all sounds a bit crazy, but a positive mindset really is the key. It doesn’t happen overnight, but it will happen
