Gratitude #1 Breathe In, Breathe Out
Updated: Jan 13, 2019
Welcome to 2019! This year is going to be incredible - I can feel it in the air already! So many exciting things happening- such as THIS BLOG! One of the things I love most about what I do is connecting with so many beautiful souls all around the world, and this blog is going to be another way to do just that.
[flying into 2019...literally! My Christmas present for mum was learning to fly - a great way to end 2018!]
Something totally different to what you normally see on social media - it’s purely me. My adventures, my opinions, my inspirations, and a place to share the smiles and love all written down. A place to share my gratitude and honestly, there are so many reasons to be grateful.
I think in today’s society, we are so focused on checking off the next item on the to-do list, sometimes, we forget to live in the moment, seize the day, be grateful for what has been achieved and all the other cliche quotes you see floating around on tumblr.
But it’s my focus this year - call it a New Year’s Resolution if you will - to live in the moment, not just pass through it. Because life is not just about surviving - it’s about living.
**SIDE NOTE: WHAT’S YOUR NEW YEARS RESOLUTION? WRITE IT IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW**
Being truly present. And a way to do that is to reflect on what we are grateful for. So, this year, I have decided that every Sunday, I will be posting right here, a reason to be grateful. Hopefully, you get to share with me every week in this moment of gratitude. Reflect on all the awesome things happening in life, and remember that there is always a reason to be grateful. So, with that in mind - here is my first reason:
Gratitude #1: Breathe in, Breathe out
So the title of this blog post is called “Breathe In, Breathe Out”, because that is my first reason to be grateful. WE ARE ALIVE! Constantly breathing air - living another minute, living another second, unconsciously and oblivious to how incredible that is.
You have been on this Earth for so many years and every new second marks the longest time you have lived on this planet. Each new moment, you are literally winning at life.
Today, on the start of this new year, I’m taking a moment of gratitude for each breathe I take.
Join me. Take a moment, breathe in. Breathe out. Feel the air filling up your lungs, giving oxygen for your heart to pump around your body. Feel the energy surge it gives you. Feel the smile creep up on your face with how good it feels.
It is incredible that you don’t even think about it, you are just alive. And if you are doing something so completely amazing as surviving without even realising, you are capable of doing anything you put your mind to. And this is the year to make your dreams a reality! 2019 is going to be absolutely incredible!
I can’t wait to go on this journey of 2019 with you! Sharing with you the joy, laughter, love, successes, lessons, adventures and so much more! So stay tuned for next week’s reason, or check out my other social media for other cool insights into what I’m up to….
I hope you had a sensational end to 2018.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
Love, ︎︎♥︎ xx
