I hope I will maintain this habit of daily reflection and gratitude. It really puts things in perspective. I hope you had a wonderful time doing the day to day gratitude list and I hope there was a fundamental shift in your life for simply doing it.
Am ready for autumn, I have an incurable obsession for sweaters so my excitement has reached an all time high.
Keep your hearts open, your hands open and keep expectant. I truly believe that something good is going to happen to you and something good is going to happen through you . Make this part of your daily mantra. Until next time.
All my love.
Your mind friend.
